from Big Island's Circle of Fire Helicopter Tour
Experience Kilauea and the Hawaii Volcano National Park! Massive eruptions of the world's most active and unpredictable volcano have dramatically altered the landscape of the Big Island. You'll embark on a breathtaking adventure on the Circle of Fire helicopter tour, seeking out the island's unique rainforest, newly formed landscapes, and black-sand beaches, as well as witnessing the results of Madame Pele's incredible volcanic activity—scenes of nature's raw power that you'll never forget!

Buckle into your ECO-Star helicopter and put on your aviation-grade headset, which allows you and the pilot to communicate clearly. As the landscapes of Hawaii Island unfold beneath you, take off and soar high above the streets.

Fly over miles of lush forest on your way to see the power of Kilauea. When you arrive at the world's longest continuously erupting volcano, marvel at the billows of smoke and steam rising from the craggy crater. In ideal conditions, you might see the glowing red lava slowly flow into the Pacific. Then, before returning to Hilo, fly above the verdant terrain flanking the Wailuku River, where waterfalls cascade into beautiful emerald ponds.
