Doors Off Lava & Rainforests Adventure

by Paradise Helicopters Duration 45m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $324

Enjoy a doors-off helicopter experience like no other. Fly a mere 500 feet (152 m) above one of the most active volcanoes in the world before cooling off with a flight above lush rainforest and past plunging waterfalls.

Take off from Hilo International Airport in a 4-passenger, all-window-seating helicopter. The Kilauea volcano quickly comes into view. With continued activity since 1983, it is considered one of the most active volcanoes in the world today. See steam rise from crevasses and feel the heat from flowing lava as your pilot navigates toward the crater rim. Once above the crater, look into the heart of one of Mother Nature's most powerful forces.

Continue your journey above Hilo's lush rainforests as well as the scenic vistas around Mauna Loa. The far-reaching views include the Pacific coastline, the fertile slopes of Mauna Kea, and the township of Hilo. Before returning, soar above magnificent Rainbow Falls, an 80-foot (24-m) waterfall that drops into a freshwater pool.

The staffs are friendly. But the volcano we saw isn't impressive at all. It is too small. I would recommend going to Vocano National park to see the Vocano instead of taking the this tour. This tour isn't worthy of money you pay.
