Kauai Helicopter Tour

Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands showing off with its immense natural wonders. A helicopter tour is probably the best way to capture the island’s entire natural scenery, lush mountains, beautiful gardens and exotic beaches, but most of all, to fully experience the ‘Garden Isle’s’ hidden wilderness, as over 70% of the Island is inaccessible by land.

Most of Kauai's air tour companies operate from Lihue but a few also fly from Hanapepe and Princeville on the North shore, with tours lasting between 50 minutes and an hour, however longer tours are available. Sit back and relax in comfort while experienced pilots will introduce you to the regions breathtaking landscapes and natural diversity for an unforgettable lifetime experience!

Hover across the panoramic Napali Coast, Kauai's famous coast line, enjoying panoramic views of the cliffs meeting the Pacific Ocean, deep waterfalls and narrow valleys. Gaze at the impressive Waimea Canyon on the West Side of Kauai and capture its entire dimension, stretching along the shoreline for 17 miles. Our favourite by far is flying over Manawaiopuna Waterfalls as seen in the movie 'Jurassic Park' and marvel at its water rushing down the steep mountains. Fly into the amazing Waialeale Crater, seeing so many waterfalls you can't even count them all.

90% of Kauai’s waterfalls are tucked away in the valleys and can’t be seen any other way then viewing them from the air.

Where to stay

The pool at night at Hotel Wailea, luxury hotel in Hawaii

Hotel Wailea

Hotel Wailea is one of the few quality boutique hotels in Hawaii, with a relaxed, laid back vibe verging on hippy-ish, but authentic all the same.

The beach at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, luxury hotel in Hawaii

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is, in our humble opinion, the best of the bunch among the Four Seasons properties in Hawaii. It seems others agree, as it’s also apparently the most successful Four Seasons in the world.

Four Seasons Lana'i Manele Bay, luxury hotel in Hawaii

The St Regis is part of the larger Princeville Resort, which also includes a Westin Hotel, a smattering of condos, two golf courses and a ranch where guests can go riding or zip-wiring.

The Modern Honolulu

The Modern Honolulu

The Modern is a contemporary urban hotel at the top end of Waikiki Beach on Honolulu. Unlike on some of the other islands where height restrictions are in place, the Modern – all 18 floors of it – is a genuine skyscraper with predictably good views as a result.
