DESCRIPTION

For the brave few looking for it all, this is the Kauai hiking tour for you! Hike as much or as little as you want. There are many days worth of roads and trails to explore, enough options to create the perfect adventure! This Hawaiian adventure through Waimea and Kokee State Parks offers up the very best Kauai has to offer. Challenging hikes and/or secluded locations and plenty of tropical island scenery await your every turn.

Let your comfortable coach drive you through the vast farmland and rolling hills of Western Kauai. We will pass through the agricultural towns of Hanapepe and Waimea, once important hubs in the burgeoning sugar industry which began on Kauai in 1835, ending in 2010.

As recently as the 1980s, Hawaii was using some 220,000 acres of farmland to produce 1.1 million tons of sugar annually. Fields of cane stretched as far as the eye can see, mauka to makai (from the mountains to the sea).

Our driving route takes us up the only road to cross the island, starting at sea level in Waimea Town, winding our way along the rim of Waimea Canyon, as we head north. The road abruptly ends at two stunning lookouts, with epic views of the world-famous Na Pali Coast from over 4,000 feet above!

Along the way, well stop at the best official and unofficial overlooks. There we will have our first opportunity to step into the crisp mountain to behold rainbow-colored canyon walls and the 800-foot Waipoo Falls. The broad spectrum of vibrant reds and greens combine with swirling clouds to create an otherworldly ambiance thats unlike any hike youve experienced.

Inside the park(s) is where your guide gets a chance to really show their stuff; youll be extra grateful you chose Kauai Hiking Tours! We will give you a detailed set of adventure options reflective of your groups unique interests.

Options range from long challenging hikes, worth every ounce of effort spent, to exploring the extensive network of scenic 44 roads that provide access to shorter trails in seldom seen corners of the park(s).
