We did the longest flight taking us across the centre of the island before heading to the active volcano. Hold your breath as theses pilots take you through gorges giving you breathtaking views of waterfalls and dense rainforest

Took the big tour. Pricey but worth every euro. This is simply the best helicopter tour we ever had and there are probably not many places in the world where such breathtaking views can be enjoyed this way. To do if your wallet allows!
