Big Island 1 day only - Helicopter or Hiking?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Hawaii solo for a business trip next weekend and have one full, free day to play on the Big Island. My inbound flight lands around 8AM and I have to be back at Hilo airport by 6PM. Help me maximize my time!

My sole priority would be seeing lava and the two options I'm entertaining are: 10 AM helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian then rent a car and drive through VNP OR hike to active flow across Kalapana (6hrs or so?) with a guide from Volcano Discovery. Any thoughts on what would be a more meaningful and cool experience? They both have pros/cons - please help me pick the better experience if you could only do one.
