Experience 

See the breathtaking beauty of Hawai‘i Island, plus enjoy a very special landing in the Kohala area on the Volcano Kohala Landing air adventure. After departing from the Kona International Airport, you will overfly the world-famous Kona coffee district and skirt three of Hawai‘i’s towering volcanoes: Hualālai, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Explore the area surrounding Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park to hunt out any current lava activity and see historic flows frozen in time. Then, turn your attention north to Hilo town and the lush rainforests of East Hawai‘i. Notice how the windward side of the island is transformed by the water caught by the mountains.

Then, unlike any other air adventure on the Big Island, Paradise will take you deep into Kohala. Walk the same fertile valleys that King Kamehameha the Great did as a child. Learn about the culture and the diverse natural habitat. Normally only accessible by hours of hiking, you are treated to the untouched purity of this serene location. After exploring on the ground, take to the air again to view the drastic landscape change from windward to leeward, and world-famous white-sand beaches and resorts en route back to Kona.
