Big Island Helicopter Tours
September 16th, 2019
The sites of the Big Island are very impressive and the land on the Big Island is actually very new, when compared with other islands, and even other destinations around the world. On a Big Island Helicopter Tour, you get a bird’s eye view of the island’s most popular sites, parts of the island that are not accessible by land, and many hidden features of the island that you can only see from above. From Kona to Hilo, and Waikoloa to Hapuna, there are Big Island Helicopter Tours that depart from all parts of the island, and show off the natural beauty of Hawaii.
When you get in the air and have a panoramic view of the island, you’ll be impressed with how big it is. Not only is the Big Island the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, it is actually twice the size of all other islands combined, and just so happens to be the youngest. The Big Island is actually the island of Hawaii, lending its name to the entire island chain, thanks to the unification of the islands hundreds of years ago by King Kamehameha the Great, who was born on the island.
Throughout your time in the air, you get to see what makes the Big Island so special. You’ll soar along the coastline and have breathtaking views of the beaches, see the deep valleys of the island, and even fly over the interior of the island that is not often seen. The volcanic landscapes of the island show the various lifecycles of the land, going from black, hardened lava to lush valleys and rolling hills. The landscapes of the island are diverse, and come from violent explosions, followed by years of evolution to turn into the land that we see, know, and love today.
Without question, the site that you’ll be most looking forward to on a Big Island Helicopter Tour is the island’s only active volcano. Mt. Kilauea, located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, is the star of any helicopter flight, and you get to see it all, even parts of the volcano that are off limits due to the unpredictability of the volcano and its active lava flows. You’re going to be blown away by the crater, lava rivers, and the activity of the volcano. There is really nothing that can compare to flying over an actively erupting volcano, easily one of the most memorable moments from your entire trip.
Big Island Helicopter Tours depart from Kona, Hilo, Waikoloa, and Hapuna, making it convenient for you to take a thrilling flight, no matter where you’re staying. Choose your helicopter tour and get ready for the ultimate sightseeing experience.
