Hike the Beauty of Kauaʻi!
The hiking on Kauaʻi is as diverse as the island’s rich heritage. We have the option to hike through lush rainforests, along sunny coastlines with crashing waves, or high above the dramatic cliffs of Waimea Canyon and the majestic Nāpali Coast, with sweeping views in all directions. These hikes and vistas are on and off the beaten track and range from easy overlooks to strenuous and steep. No matter the difficulty, these are special places that will leave your mind and spirit in amazement. At Kauaʻi Hiking Adventures we offer more than just an activity, we offer the memories that great vacations are made of. Memories that last a lifetime.
Some of the best hikes in the state of Hawaii are on the island of Kauaʻi:
- Waimea Canyon/Waipoʻo Falls
- Kōkeʻe State Park/Awaʻawapuhi and Nualolo Ridge
- Alakaʻi Swamp/Kilohana Overlook
- Kuilau Ridge Trail
- Sleeping Giant
- Hanakapiʻai Falls
- Powerline Trail
In order to accommodate our diverse clientele, we offer hiking tours to a multitude of destinations and of various length and difficulty. Here are some of the areas we traverse:
Nāpali Ridge Tops – Hike highland ridge tops high above the exquisite Nāpali Coast to sweeping vistas of the valleys below. These hikes commence at high elevations which means cooler temperatures, and unique flora and fauna.
Canyon Rim – Hike along a canyon rim to awe-inspiring views or descend to the canyon floor to experience one of a kind nature. Waimea Canyon has been nicknamed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” while there are some similarities in the look – Waimea Canyon is far more diverse, colorful, and accessible then the mainland version.
Coastal/Beach Hikes –Stroll at length down a secluded beach, far beyond the tourist zone, and explore tide pools, sea arches, and other phenomena that result from millions of years of ocean meeting volcanic earth, teeming with birds, aquatic life and earth creatures great and small. If you’re lucky you’ll encounter sea turtles, albatross, Hawaiian monk seals, whales, dolphins and more.
Waterfall Hikes – Kauaʻi is speckled with waterfalls and swimming holes. Some an easy stroll from a car, others nestled more deeply in the islands interior.
