Full description
Join us on our most popular tour duration! This is a custom tour – we can hike as little or as much as you would like. Options include a driving tour to check out some of the North Shores’ most famous waterfalls, beaches, and lookouts (with a stop at a favorite local spot for lunch and/or time for a couple short hikes). Or, meet in historic “Hanapēpē Town” on the western (or “leeward”) side of the island, a launching off point to explore Waimea Canyon and Kōkeʻe State Park(s). Options for hikes and/or sites to see in these two parks is limitless – they include areas of diverse vegetation, fauna, and terrain. From ridge top hikes high above the Nāpali Coast to equally stunning views along the rim of Waimea Canyon. Waimea/Kōkeʻe tours include a scenic drive of at least one hour each way (a little longer taking into account stopping at the choicest overlooks along the way). Our guests love this scenic drive and stopping on top of the mountain at rustic Koke’e Lodge for a delicious lunch. Aside from the drive, and possibly stopping at the lodge for lunch, how much hiking we do depends on your interest and ability level. Much can be seen in this area because these diverse viewpoints are relatively close together. When you hike with a guide, your experience is much safer, deeper, and more satisfying. The expertise of our local guides can point out and explain things you would not have seen or known about on your own. They are happy to share places that wouldn’t have been on your radar and take you to areas of tremendous beauty. Being surrounded by nature is our goal, and we aim to make your day with us the highlights of your trip on Kauaʻi. Utilizing tools such as specialized hiking equipment, 4×4 vehicles (as needed), and first aid training/equipment will ensure you have the safest, most enjoyable, time possible. So book today and leave the planning to us. Let the enjoyment of being in nature with a trusted guide be our service to you! Please keep in mind that tour durations begin when you meet your guide until you part ways.

Excellent hike and activity. Outstanding views from amazing vantage points at both the Canyon / waterfalls and Napoli coast. Jenny (and Bubby the friendly dog) were great guide(s) and we had such a fun time. Easily our best day in Kauai. Jenny’s local knowledge was amazing and we had a great picnic meal / smoothie as well with her during the trip.

This is a beautiful hike. It has some steep parts that are tricky. But it is excellent. I would rate it moderate to difficult. Our guide, Malu, was spectacular!
