5 Ways to Experience Oahu From Above

This article was written by Kyle Ellison on behalf of Viator.com.

In a word, the island of Oahu is gorgeous. Yes, there are freeways, high-rises, and sprawls of development which climb like ivy up the terraces of the Ko’olaus, but there is also the ever-present fusion of nature where sky, sea, shoreline, and summit all form a tableau of tropical perfection. While you can experience this beauty in many forms on all different corners of the island (a sunrise from the shoreline of Kailua comes to mind), one of the best places to bear witness to the island’s beauty is with a bird’s eye view from above.

Over the next few months there are a few great opportunities to beat the crowds, enjoy nice weather, and even save some money.

For island dreamers along the eastern seaboard, getting to Hawaii hasn't always been the easiest or most convenient journey.
