Helicopter Tours, Hilo

4.4
#1 of 33 in Tours in Hilo
Get the best aerial views of the Big Island's scenic landscape on an exhilarating helicopter tour from Hilo. Soar through the air above Hawaii's striking natural wonders, soaking in jaw-dropping vistas of active volcanoes, snowcapped summits, thundering waterfalls, and black-sand beaches. You'll be able to peer into steaming craters and see lava and cinder cones, as your doors-off helicopter circles above these photogenic geological features. Some tours combine the flight with other adrenalin-fueled activities, including guided treks through Volcanoes National Park and ziplining above a tropical river gorge. These tours can last up to 14 hours, but the flight alone takes 45 minutes.
