More about this activity
While many visitors associate the Big Island of Hawaii with raw volcanic activity, lava deserts, soaring mountains, and the bright white sand beaches of Kona, the Kohala region on the northern tip of the island is coated in rainforest and littered with waterfalls. This tour immerses guests in this wild coast, allowing them to take in the views of verdant sea cliffs and valleys and enjoy the cool waters beneath one of seven waterfalls. To reach the trail, guests will 4×4 ramble through off-road terrain.
This hike travels 1.5 miles through a private nature reserve, only accessible via tour. The hike itself is moderate and takes about one to two hours to complete. Keep in mind that you’ll be traveling through the jungle and conditions can often be muddy and wet. You’ll be rewarded with views of ribboning silver waterfalls, and even the opportunity to wash away the Hawaiian humidity in the cool stream waters.
Transportation from the Kona and Waikoloa areas is included and takes about 3.5-4 hours round trip. Lunch from a local deli is also provided, as well as sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer. Guests will also come away with invaluable knowledge of the history, geology, and flora and fauna of the area from their trail guide.
