View from The Top: Coolest Helicopter Tours

If there’s anything cooler than a helicopter tour, Travelversed hasn’t found it yet. And before you ask, yes, we have seen hoverboards and no they aren’t as cool as you think they are.

Why do we love helicopter rides so much? Because they’re romantic, awe inspiring, cost effective, and unforgettable. Why buy a ticket to a local show when you can fly over the city at night? Why opt for a hike when you can take to the sky and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the mountains?

Today on Travelversed, we put on one of those fancy helicopter earmuffs and scour the globe for the coolest helicopter tours around.

Big Island – Hawaii

First, we visit Big Island (or The Orchid Isle) in Hawaii for an unforgettable flight over some incredible, natural landmarks. At just over 4,000 square miles (and growing), a helicopter tour is the perfect way to soak in all of Big Island’s natural landmarks.

The right tour will take you over an active volcano (Kilauea), dense Hawaiian rainforests, and breathtaking waterfalls for roughly 50 minutes. Next time you find yourself in Hawaii, leave the mai tai at the resort and go on an adventure of a lifetime.
