Heli-Hiking on Mauna Loa

Taking off from the coast your pilot will bring you over uninhabited valleys, offering a glimpse of Hawaii before it was developed—lush rainforests, rocky slopes, and towering waterfalls. Keep an eye out for roaming feral horses, pigs, and sheep.

Touch down in an isolated clearing and meet your hiking guide, who will introduce you to life on the ground. Pass beneath broad koa and ohi’a trees. Take care not to tread on the stunning tropical flowers which grow in abundance from the rich, volcanic soil. 

Cool off in a refreshing waterfall before flying over the rugged coastline dotted with remote beaches on your way back to the airport.
