Feel a Hawaiian volcano’s heat radiate from its crater as you experience live volcanic activity up close, with nothing between you and the lava! An open-door helicopter ride over a Big Island volcano is the adventure of a lifetime. After the lava warms you up, you’ll cool back down with breathtaking views of cascading waterfalls before soaring back to Hilo.

For a guaranteed window seat, make sure to upgrade to the preferred seating option.

Highlights
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views
  • Qualified and professional pilot

This 45-minute Big Island helicopter ride from Hilo isn’t your average helicopter tour. You won’t simply stare out of glass windows – this helicopter is open-door, meaning there’s nothing between you and these amazing Hawaiian sights (don’t worry, it’s safe!).

You’ll take off from Hilo International Airport in a four-passenger Hughes 500 Helicopter and spend almost an hour flying over this beautiful island. Soar above an active Hawaiian volcano and watch the lava flow to the ocean. Get up close and personal with volcanic lava, and feel its heat emanating from the crater, with nothing between you but air. This once-in-a-lifetime experience gets you as close as you'll ever want to be to a natural wonder so powerful and magnificent.

In addition to the volcano, you’ll fly over waterfalls and tropical rainforests. Listen to expert narration from your professional pilot on your two-way headset, and see great views of historic downtown Hilo on your return flight to the airport.
