Thrill on this Hilo Zipline Tour with Umauma Falls!
When you’re staying on the Big Island, you have to check out the amazing Umauma Falls Experience. Take on their 9 line Hilo zipline tour! The zip course is positioned along beautiful botanical gardens, and you’ll zip across the banks of the mighty Umauma River. Fly high with friends and family over the river’s signature waterfalls, lava tubes and miles of rainforest.
Just 30 minutes north of Hilo along the Hamakua Coast, you’ll check in with the smiling and kind staff of Umauma Ziplines. Here you’ll get equipped with your gear, including a helmet and harness. Even the most timid and nervous zippers will feel at ease after the safety briefing and detailed instructions with the crew.
