You flew all the way to Hawai‘i; you should see it all on the only complete helicopter tour around Hawai’i island. The Island of Hawai’i really is a “Big Island.” Paradise’s Circle Island Experience is the only helicopter tour in Hawai‘i that ventures south to encompass the entire perimeter, and we do it in just two hours! Starting from the Kona International Airport at the island’s western-most tip, your pilot takes you past the Kona coffee district and the slopes of Mauna Loa to the southernmost town in the United States. You’ll be amazed when viewing one of only four green sand beaches in the world!

Next, your pilot will take you to view the world’s most active volcano, and continue towards Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent. After over 35 years of activity, discover what Kīlauea Volcano has left in the wake of its recent eruptive episode. Witness otherworldly landscapes like the incredible eight-mile river of frozen lava from Ahuʻailāʻau to the Pacific Ocean, the newest black sand beaches on earth, and enormous craters created by these historic events. Then, turn to the east, the island’s lush windward side and Hilo town. Notice how water now flows where lava once did, gushing out of sheer cliffs through lava tubes, creating hundreds of waterfalls and nourishing the rich vegetation. The grandeur of the Kohala valleys and waterfalls of the north are sure to catch your breath, as are the white sand beaches on your return to Kona.
