Hawaii: Big Island, Big Adventures


The Big Island of Hawaii flaunts nature’s dominance on every corner with it’s three active volcanoes, the offspring of which erupt into the world consuming all that lies in their path. Vast landscapes of lava serve as a dramatic backdrop for white,black and even green sand beaches .The sheer beauty of Hawaii is outstanding.

The Fairmont Orchid offers everything you could need for your taste of paradise. Tranquillity is infectious here, with turtles basking on the beaches and whales performing off shore. This coupled with excellent service makes you never want to leave. However taking advantage of the life changing experiences available to you on Hawaii can restore a sense of wonder that may have been diluted by today’s challenging times. www.fairmont.com/orchid

AIR
The big picture. It is impossible to appreciate the scale of this island without a birds eye view. Blue Hawaiian’s new Eco Star Helicopters open up a whole new panoramic way of sight. Watch boiling lava splash into the sea, fly over rain forests and snow capped mountains , widen your perspective and have a super sensory experience. www.bluehawaiian.com

LAND
Hawaii Forest and Trail offer a variety of hikes into the wilderness . Their partnerships with private landowners allow tours to places with wild and remote native ecosystems that have been previously inaccessible. Their guides have a real passion for Hawaii’s natural world and an enthusiasm for sharing it. www.hawaii-forest.com/

SEA
Sunlight on Water’s captain China starts every trip with a traditional Hawiian prayer acknowledging the universe and asking permission from the dolphins and whales to enter into their kingdom. Swimming with wild dolphins, is a bucket list favorite and lives up to every expectation. Looking into the eye of a dolphin connects you to the Aloha and Spirit of Hawaii and helps us remember who we truly are. Night swimming with manta rays is an experience like none other. Floating in pitch black water and having 15ft manta rays dance their ballet all around you is like starring in your own episode of The Blue Planet. www.sunlightonwater.com
