NaPali Coast Cliff Top Hike
Vendor: Kauai Hiking Tours
Category: Hiking
Location: Kauai


Accessible only by foot, our six- to seven-hour, Napali Coast cliff top hike is designed to give you amazing views thousands of feet above the ocean! While these Kauai hikes can be muddy, slippery and strenuous, you will be amply rewarded for your effort with sweeping views of the most dramatic sections of the famous 17-mile-long Na Pali Coastline.

Meet your guide and hop into a comfortable coach. Driving east to west, youll witness a change in vegetation and climate as you transition into the rain shadow, characterized by the arid farmland of the islands leeward side(on the opposite side of mountains from typical trade wind direction). Along the way, well pass through the agricultural towns of Hanapepe and Waimea and learn the important role they played in Kauai's history.

Your tour continues across the center of the island, winding along the rim of Waimea Canyon and to the North Shore, 4,000 feet (1,220 m) above the spectacular Napali Coast. Rainbow-colored canyon walls and cool mountain air create an otherworldly ambiance thats unlike anything youve experienced

We will stop at a couple of the choicest Waimea Canyon overlooks, including one with a view of 800-footWaipoo Falls, before beginning our ridge hike from one of the trailheads in Kokee State Park. There we will enjoy jaw-dropping views of the world-famous Napali Coast.
