Most people that experience the Blue Hole don’t actually step foot in it, but view it from the window of a helicopter. The Blue Hole is surrounded by miles of thick rainforest, mountains, and rivers, which makes it one of the most remote places on Kauai. It is also one of the most difficult places to reach by foot. Our guide contains essential driving information, photos, a detailed map, and step-by-step instructions to The Blue Hole. Check out the video of our adventure hiking to The Blue Hole here!
