A: It's easy to explore the Big Island by air when you climb on board for an exhilarating helicopter tour of Hawaii's most spectacular visuals. You can choose from tours that will take you close to active volcanoes and plunging waterfalls. Or explore volcanoes then land in the Hawaiian Legacy Forest to plant your own tree. You can also combine volcano sightseeing with ziplining for the whole family. Extreme athletes might enjoy checking out the Ironman Route by air. And those looking for some airborne romance will enjoy soaking up a spectacular island sunset from high in the sky.
