Pau Hana Helicopter Tour

Explore deep, meandering valleys set in the rainforest of the ancient West Maui Mountains. Knife-edged ridges with mist-shrouded peaks separate the spectacular valleys that give Maui its nickname, “The Valley Isle.” Waterfalls cascade down from towering cliffs into the streams running along the rainforest floor. See the famous Iao valley and learn about the history and culture of the sights from your pilot, who is also a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide.

Tour over ‘The Valley Isle” and land at an exclusive and scenic landing site in the pastoral setting of Ulupalakua Ranch (Upcountry Maui).  With breathtaking views from the slopes of Haleakala, look out to a 3 island view of Molokai, Maui and Molokini.  Enjoy light refreshments while your pilot points out some of Maui’s highlights before boarding to return to Kahului.
