If there is one thing you do while on the island, this is it! We took the 3 hour Valley Landing trip which was amazing. We saw some incredible scenery while flying through sun, mist, clouds, rain and smoke from the volcano. Yes, we saw lava both in the crater and as it entered the sea, but my favorite was the waterfall valleys- so beautiful. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the area and I was very impressed with the pre safety presentation before starting out. My only suggestion is not to pay the extra to secure a particular seat as the views are great from all seats. Our 11 year old son sat in the middle and loved it cause he could see both sides. The pilot also changed direction to give all passengers the best views. Thanks for an experience I shall not forget.
