About Us & Why
As Kauai’s premier guided hiking tour company, Kauai Hiking Adventures strives to find a hike that is perfect for you and your group. We are a real adventure company. On some of our more epic hikes, we begin hiking at the places where other tour companies turn around and head back to their van. We also empower you to explore more confidently on your own after you have spent your time with us.
Kauai Hiking Adventures is committed to making our services available to everyone who has a genuine desire to connect more deeply with nature in a reverent and respectful way; regardless of age, physical fitness, hiking experience or technical expertise. While we often reach destinations that are considered extremely challenging, our philosophy is primarily experiential rather than goal-oriented which allows us to accommodate your needs and arrive at our destination gracefully.
There are many reasons why people choose Kauai Hiking Adventures:
- With our guides and their unique, experience-based understanding of every twist and turn of our Kauai eco system, you will never again have to debate which is the safest and most efficient way to go. They know exactly where to go!
- KHA has the most experienced guides. They have spent countless days, weeks, and even months at a time exploring the many secrets that our island has to offer while becoming familiar with her various climates and terrains.
- 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.
- We engage with your children and teach them ways to be entertained by nature. Your kids won’t ask, “Are we there yet?” They will ask if we are hiking with KHA again tomorrow!
- Our guides give you personalized attention to help keep you safe. Whether it’s support climbing down a muddy embankment or holding your hand as you cross a stream, our goal is to make your hike safer and teach you valuable skills along the way.
- Experienced and well-trained guides find a steady pace that suits you as well as gets you to your desired destination and back in good time.
- We are knowledgeable and passionate about island sustainability. We will not take you on eroding trails or down paths that need rest from excessive tourist traffic. Many guide books exalt trails that are too delicate for frequent hikers. As much as we want to give you what you want, it is part of our credo to never tread on the earth in ways that make it difficult for her to recover naturally.
