Roberts Hawaii - One Day Oahu to Hilo: Circle of Fire Helicopter Flight & Hilo Volcano Tour

Experience the sights of the Big Island of Hawaii from the air and land on this one day island hopping tour from Oahu!

Start in the early morning either getting picked up from a Waikiki area hotel or meet at the Honolulu Airport to catch a flight to Hilo on Hawaiian Airlines.

Once you arrive to the Hilo Airport, you'll join the land tour portion to see Hawaii!  Head to the Volcanoes National Park, home of one of the world's most active volcanoes.  Visit the Kilauea Visitor Center (restroom stop), the Volcano House with a walk to view Halemaumau Crater, drive past steam vents, Kilauea Iki Overlook, Pu'u Pua'i Crater, Laumanu Crater & Puhimau.
Then head off to the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory where you can see the orchards, enjoy free samples, and see exclusive Mauna Loa treats found only at the factory.  The factory is closed on weekends and holidays!

Visit the 'Imiloa Astronomy Center that features exhibits and shows dealing in Hawaiian Culture.  Then continue on to see Rainbow Falls, a majestic waterfall that cascades 80 feet over a lava cave and where rainbows are often seen in the rising mist.

Then head over to Hilo airport to meet Blue Hawaiian Helicopters to depart for the Circle of Fire Helicopter tour.  This helicopter tour flies over eastern areas of the Big Island, one of the most geologically active environments in existence.  The flight focuses on current areas of volcanic activity (when safe to fly near), lava flows, tropical rain forests, and cascading waterfalls.

DVD or USB flight recordings are available for purchase at Blue Hawaiian Helicopters.

After your flight, head back to Oahu.  If your helicopter flight is cancelled by Blue Hawaiian helicopter for any reason, guests will continue on the land tour portion to see Richardson's Black Sand Beach and Lili'uokalani Garden.
