What you can expect

Lush tropical rainforest and waterfalls abound in this small group tour along the north coast of Hawaii Island. This off-road adventure will take you through the beauty of Kohala, finishing with an energizing waterfall swim.

Journey over the lava fields along the Kona coast and pass through the charming towns of Hawi and Kapaau—site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha I on your way to the lush, green country of Kohala.

Arrive at the gate to a private reserve. Your 4WD Mercedes Sprinter Van maneuvers down a short road along old sugar-cane fields. Hike along the 1.5 mile (2.4 km) loop trail and examine tunnels blasted and carved through solid rock, bringing much-needed water for agricultural use. Your guide provides details about this amazing irrigation network, stretching over 22 miles (35 km) as you walk through the aqueduct. Explore fascinating Hawaiian history with a visit to a former taro-farming site just off the path.

Enjoy a picnic lunch among far-reaching mountain views, lush green valleys, and several majestic waterfalls. At the last waterfall, plunge into the cool water for a refreshing dip before heading back to your hotel.
