Kauai is well know for it;s lush jungles, waterfalls and of course the picturesque Napali coast. You will find some amazing hikes for all levels of hikers so be sure to get out there and experience some gorgeous scenery and amazing views.
A couple different coastal hikes where you explore pristine stretches of undeveloped coastline which will give you a sense of what ancient Kauaʻi might have felt like, long before tourists left their footprints in the sand. It is in this natural setting that we will have a good chance of seeing the endangered Hawaiian monk seal.
For a little more of an inland hike there is the Kuilau Ridge Jungle Trail hike to Mt. Wai’ale’ale, this lush trail originally got its name from native Hawaiians gathering and utilizing natural resources from the area.This gentle trail is a nature lover's dream!
The Waimea Canyon & Kōke’e State Park hike is a Hawaiian adventure through Waimea and Kōkeʻe State Parks offers up the very best Kauaʻi has to offer. Challenging hikes and/or secluded locations and plenty of tropical island scenery await your every turn.
For the more adventurous there is the Nāpali cliff top hike which a more
difficult Kauaʻi cliff hike with breathtaking views.accessible only by foot, our six- to seven-hour, Nāpali Coast cliff top hike is designed to give you amazing views thousands of feet above the ocean!
If you would like to add a snorkeling adventure to go along with your hike there is the North shore coastal wildlife hike where you may also see honu (green sea turtles) basking in the sand and migratory seabirds, such as mōlī (Laysan albatross), ʻiwa (great frigatebird), and red-footed boobies soaring overhead.
This hike hugs the wild coast, taking us over beaches and rocky shorelines for about two miles before reaching a rocky promontory with epic views in both directions. As you study this unspoiled terrain for shells, you’ll also have the opportunity to pick up “marine debris,” washed up from far-flung parts of the world (trash bags provided). You can then relax or go for a snorkel.
There is a hike for everyone so be sure to get out and explore all the beauty that kauai has to offer.
