The Lava & Rainforests Adventure showcases the how the story of Hawai‘i is inextricably linked to the elements. You will fly over Kīlauea, the most active volcano on earth, and search out glowing red lava, evidence that this fiery hot spot is constantly cycling through both creation and destruction. However, the windward side also catches enough rain to make Hilo the wettest city in the United States. All this water fills tunnels that once flowed with lava, creating incredible rivers, pools and waterfalls all over East Hawai’i. Hilo’s lush rain forests, Mauna Loa’s vistas and the plunging Wai‘ānuenue (Rainbow Falls), so named for the rainbows you can see in the mist when the early morning sunshine hits the water.

Choose the Lava & Rainforests Adventure to see volcanic activity and waterfalls inaccessible by any other means!

I loved my tour with these guys. Since the moment you check in the people from Paradise Helicopters treat you like a King. The pilot was cool and professional. What I loved the most about this tour is that it combines forest with the amazing view that only the volcanic chain in Big island can offer. Good price for the experience. Highly recommended.

I took this tour with my wife and it didn’t disappoint at all. The pilot was friendly and very knowledgable. The Kilauea Volcano is very impressive from the air.

I recommend this tour to everybody who wants to have an unforgettable experience in Big Island and not willing to spend more than 300 bucks. Make sure you are staying on the Hilo side because if you are staying in Kona and you want to do this tour, you are gonna have to drive 2 hours to get there.
