Full description
As Kauaʻi’s premier guided hiking tour company, Kauaʻi Hiking Adventures strives to find a hike that is perfect for you and your group. With our guides and their unique, experience-based understanding of every twist and turn of our Kauaʻi ecosystem, you will never again have to debate which is the safest and most efficient way to go. They know exactly where to go! Our guides share a wealth of information with you about flora, fauna, and history of our beautiful island while also giving you the silence and serenity you are out there to enjoy. Our Short & Sweet Adventure is 1 – 3 hours long. In this short time, we will focus on a mostly flat hike above crashing waves, along 40 foot lithfied sandstone cliffs on the islands' South Side, a steep but rewarding hike up "Sleeping Giant" with sweeping coastal views to the east, or an interior "jungle" ridge hike with views towards Mount Waiʻaleʻale (one of the rainiest places on earth). You will have an opportunity to discuss your specific interests and ability level directly with your guide before the adventure and choose between one of the following routes: 1. Coastal Forest, Field, and small Sea Cliff Route (easy/moderate) 2. Interior Jungle Ridge Route (moderate) 3. Giant Hike Route (moderate/difficult) Please keep in mind that tour durations begin when you meet your guide until you part ways. If you need pick up/drop off from your accommodations, please choose our "Half-Day Adventure" option with a longer duration to account for the extra driving time.
