Circle of Fire Helicopter Adventure

1 2 3 4

Piping-hot lava, crystal-blue waters, and lush tropical rainforests await you. Climb aboard a spacious helicopter to view one of the most geologically active environments on earth.


Step out onto the sizzling tarmac to the whoosh of propellers preparing to whisk you into the skies above paradise. Soar over cascading waterfalls of the Wailuku River and pass the slopes of the world’s largest volcano, Mauna Loa. Approach Hawaii’s only active volcano, Kilauea, as you watch lava seep from the cone of its rumbling mass. Get close to this ominous, simmering beast that has been continuously erupting since 1983.
