What You Can Expect

Big Island Adventure Combo: Helicopter, Zipline and Lava Tour

Fly over Volcano National Park

After pickup from your Kona or Waikoloa hotel, your full-day tour begins with a drive across the Big Island toward Hilo, where you’ll make a brief stop at the KapohoKine Adventures store to purchase any souvenirs or supplies — such as T-shirts, hats or water bottles — that you may want.

Then head to the zipline course, where eight dual-track, side-by-side ziplines cover nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) of tropical river gorges. Once you’re outfitted in the provided gear, let the professional instructors guide you along one of the Big Island’s longest ziplines — more than 2,400 feet (700 meters) in length! As you fly through the air 160 feet (49 meters) off the ground, admire views of surrounding waterfalls.

When you’re back on the ground, enjoy a picnic-style deli lunch before taking off for your next activity (snacks and beverages are also provided throughout the day). At the heliport, board the comfortable, air-conditioned helicopter for your exhilarating ride that takes you over volcanoes and the rainforest landscape.

As your pilot flies toward Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano, and Kilauea, an active volcano (one of the world’s most active, in fact), stare down at the changing scenery, admiring how the lush greenery turns to stark black lava. Fly through columns of steam rising from the volcanoes, and then head north, past Hilo and into waterfall country. Enjoy the aerial views of falls like the popular Rainbow Falls before your pilot lands.

After landing, the third part of your Big Island adventure begins with a drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Take a tour of the park — which encompasses Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes — with a ranger-trained guide, learning about the geological history of the park and seeing highlights like active craters, lava tubes, steam vents and the Jaggar Museum.

Finally, end your tour with dinner inside the park at the Volcano House, a historic hotel and restaurant that overlooks Halemaumau crater. Look for lava and enjoy the sunset before the drive back to your hotel. See the Itinerary section below for a sample dinner menu.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Excellent!!!!! I had never ziplined before and the staff made me feel comfortable about zipping. Great pilot for the helicopter ride, got us really close to the active volcano.....what a view! Extra kudos for our guide (Kelsey), who picked us up at our hotel in Kona, drove us to and from Hilo and also did our Volcano Museum tour. She was very friendly, upbeat and informative throughout the day about what we were seeing and doing.
