Hop aboard your private helicopter at Hilo airport and fly to Kilauea Volcano. Marvel at the sleeping giant’s broad slopes and the relative peace of its innocuous slumber.
Kilauea may seem serene, but this volcano only recently ended a 38-year continuous eruption and is even now expected to erupt again. The volcano’s features are changing so rapidly that you won’t know what to expect until you get there.
Cool off with an exhilarating doors-off helicopter tour of Hilo’s exuberant rainforests. Feel the cool air and hear the cacophony of life in the forest below as your pilot whisks you over the treetops.
In a clearing ahead you spy a staggering waterfall, Waianuenue. Here, the Wailuku River pours over a natural lava cave, creating an impressive waterfall which scatters the sun in a magnificent rainbow.
