Want to experience all that the Big Island has to offer but don’t want to drive all over to do it? Most of the Big Island is inaccessible by foot or land vehicle, so the absolute best way is to experience the island is by helicopter tour in Kona, Hawaii. Departing from Kona Airport, Kona’s helicopter tours will give you a bird’s-eye-view of the fiery active volcanoes of Kīlauea and Pu’u Oʻo Vent. You’ll soar over vast lava fields punctuated by streams of molten lava flowing to the ocean. After you pass the magnificent 14,000-foot heights of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, you’ll be greeted with the lush jungle wonderland of the Hāmākua Coast. Up on the island’s northern side, hover within the remote, mystical Waipi‘o and Waimanu Valleys amidst 2,000-foot high cascading waterfalls.
