Hawaii Island Adventures

Is that sound you hear the helicopter or the beating of your heart? As you hover above Kilauea Volcano’s steaming Puu Oo vent it’s hard to tell. Taking a helicopter tour for a bird’s-eye view of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the rest of the island’s hidden waterfalls, lush valleys and balmy beaches is just the beginning of an exhilarating Hawaii Island expedition.

With surroundings ranging from lava-strewn deserts to tropical plantations and gardens, you can engage in every imaginable outdoor activity here. Snorkel or scuba with manta rays off the Kona Coast. Horseback ride in the grassy plains of paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) country in Waimea. Discover the 135-metre Akaka Falls and the 24-metre Waianuenue, also known as Rainbow Falls in Wailuku River State Park. Hike along the 241 kilomtres of volcanic desert and tropical trails at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

With so much to do and see, Hawaii Island is known as “Hawaii’s Island of Adventure,” and it won’t take long for you to see just how appropriately named it is.
