Looking for thrills? A way to get a rush of adrenaline? Want to test your limits and see just how high you can go before your stomach starts to do flips? With the multitude of high-flying activities Hawaii has to offer, you’ve definitely chosen the right spot for an activity-filled vacation.
Just about everyone enjoys walking on our beautiful beaches, their toes sinking into the golden sand, but you’re looking to get off the ground and engage some of our more high-flying adventures. Enjoy an exciting rush as the ground is taken from beneath you, leaving you with not only some of the best views on the islands, but also with unforgettable stories to tell once you’re back on the ground.
If it’s heights you’re looking for, then a helicopter ride over the islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island will be your top activity. Soar over the islands for unbelievable views of Hawaii’s greatest assets. Stare down into the monumental volcanoes scattered across the island chain and get a pristine view of the distant horizon as it melts into the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean.
There are few Hawaiian views better than those experienced on a helicopter tour, but there is an experience that comes close and offers a remarkable feeling of freedom.
Bringing you a little closer to the ground, the Hawaii ziplining experience is a fast-paced, high-flying activity that takes you through a series of courses set above the green, lush canopies of the dense jungles. Guests travel from platform to platform, enjoying a longer ride than the previous one, finally zipping down over 1,000 feet of cable.
With no metal, machinery, or walls surrounding you, ziplining offers a feeling of wide-open freedom. Secured in a state-of-the-art harness, you can stretch your arms out and let the tropical breeze rush over you.
While you may not get an overhead view of Hawaii like a helicopter tour, ziplining does give you an entirely different angle. Depending on the course you’re running, you can gaze out into an expanse of green lined with slivers of gold. You may even glimpse the profile of the same massive volcanoes you’d see from a helicopter or the tops of cities like Honolulu peeking through the trees.
The Benefits of High-Flying Activities
In case you can’t quite put your finger on exactly why you want to choose an activity that takes you off the ground, it’s all about the unique experience that few get to enjoy. Along with entirely new views from what you get on the ground, you’ll be able to do something that’s worth bragging about once your vacation is over.
