Kohala Waterfalls Adventure

by Hawaii Forest and Trail Duration 8h Picks up from select hotels Picks up from select hotels Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $195

Lush tropical rainforest and waterfalls abound in this small group tour along the north coast of Hawaii Island. This off-road adventure will take you through the beauty of Kohala, finishing with an energizing waterfall swim.

Journey over the lava fields along the Kona coast and pass through the charming towns of Hawi and Kapaau—site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha I on your way to the lush, green country of Kohala.

Arrive at the gate to a private reserve. Your 6WD Pinzgauer vehicle maneuvers down a short road along old sugar-cane fields. Hike along the 1.5 mile (2.4 km) loop trail and examine tunnels blasted and carved through solid rock, bringing much-needed water for agricultural use. Your guide provides details about this amazing irrigation network, stretching over 22 miles (35 km) as you walk through the aqueduct. Explore fascinating Hawaiian history with a visit to a former taro-farming site just off the path.

Enjoy a picnic lunch among far-reaching mountain views, lush green valleys, and up to 7 thundering waterfalls. At the last waterfall, plunge into the cool water for a refreshing dip before heading back to your hotel.

The whole trip went so smooth from pick up to drop off. We were picked up at our hotel on schedule. Our driver, host, and tour guide, Mark, was friendly and very knowledgeable about vegetation we saw during our hike and its relation to the history of Hawai’i. We saw at least 4 waterfalls and got to try thimbleberries and wild guava along the way. Riding in the pinzgauer was a blast and swimming in a Hawaiian waterfall pool will be unforgettable. Topping it off with a stunning coastal view made for a perfect outing!
