Hilo: Doors-Off Lava & Rainforests Adventure

THE MOST EPIC EXPERIENCE EVER! That’s what many of our guests say after taking a ride in our Hughes 500 helicopter without doors over what was one of the most active volcanoes in the world! After over 35 years of activity, be one of the first to discover what Kilauea Volcano has left in the wake of its recent historic eruptive episode. Witness otherworldly landscapes like the incredible 8-mile river of frozen lava from Fissure 8 to the Pacific Ocean, the newest black sand beaches on earth, and enormous craters created by these recent events!

Along the way, view Mauna Loa’s vistas, the beauty of lush Puna rainforests and mesmerizing Hilo waterfalls. With no windows to look through, there is no better way for you to share amazing photos and video of your experience than flying on this doors-off tour!
