Kaua’i is often called “The Garden Isle” because of its verdant tropical beauty. Kaua’i’s dramatic landscapes include the Nā Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, and Mount Waiʻaleʻale, the wettest spot on earth. Kaua’i’s lush vegetation, tall waterfalls, and pristine beaches make it a popular tourist destination. This five-hour driving tour takes you to the best official and “unofficial” overlooks of Kaua’i’s natural wonders. You’ll stop at Waimea Canyon, Kaua’i’s Grand Canyon, and the Nā Pali Coast, a serene stretch of coastline with towering sea cliffs. Along the way, your guide will share Kaua’i’s history and culture. The tour includes a couple of options for short hikes, so you can enjoy Kaua’i’s exquisite backdrops at your leisure.
Our driving route takes us east to west from “Sunny Po’ipu,” through the agriculture turned art town of Hanapēpē, to Waimea, believed to be one of the first areas settled by Polynesian explorers. From sea level in Waimea, we will cross the island’s interior, south to north, winding steadily up along the rim of Waimea Canyon, and culminating with stunning viewpoints of the world-famous Nā Pali Coast on Kauaʻi’s North Shore. We’ll stop at canyon overlooks where you will feel a blast of cool mountain air. If you want to stretch your legs, your guide will select the best trails to explore. The Nā Pali Coast offers some of the most incredible views in all of Hawaii. Soak in the experience as you take in sweeping panoramas of Kauai’s jagged coastline.
