I absolutely loved touring the geological formations of Volcanoes National Park from a helicopter. However, it was not until we were hovering over the crater of molten rock that I realized should an equipment failure occur, and the pilot was forced to land, we would surely die. That thought made the hike on land seem very appealing. It's amazing that for miles and miles you see
baron smoldering land that cannot anything, then suddenly you're in the Hawaiian jungle. The visitor center has a lot of information, and in the evening you can view the activity from the craters. If you want to get up close and personal with the volcano, the best way to view the park is by air.
