Kauai Adventures

Kauai, known as the “Garden Isle” of Hawaii is known for its lush tropical rainforest. Kauai’s dramatic cliffs and towering waterfalls have been the backdrop for many Hollywood films. Some highlights are hiking Waimea Canyon, exploring the scenic Awa’awapuhi Trail and if you’re looking for a challenge, trekking into the heart of Kauai, the Blue Hole. This page has videos and downloadable guides of some of the best hikes and adventures in Kauai.

The Blue Hole

Most people that experience the Blue Hole don’t actually step foot in it, they view it from the window of a helicopter. The Blue Hole is surrounded by miles of thick rain forest, mountains, and rivers, which makes it one of the most remote and difficult to reach places on Kauai.

The Secret Tunnels Hikes

Kauai’s secret tunnels hike has been said to be one of the most difficult hikes on the island. The difficulty of this hike doesn’t come from the elevation, distance or technical skill needed, it’s the environment around the hike. You will most likely be getting very wet, muddy, and scratched up. If you are willing to endure the hike, and you get the right day, you will find yourself surrounded by beautiful lush Kauai hills that most people will never set their eyes on.

Hiking Waimea Canyon Trail

Waimea Canyon is referred to by some as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”.  Waimea Canyon is not quite as old or as large as the Grand Canyon, but the lush vegetation that grows in, and around the canyon, makes it one of a kind.
