Waipo'o Falls Trail: Our most recommended tours and activities

Kauai: Waimea Canyon & Kokeʻe State Park Private Tour

1. Kauai: Waimea Canyon & Kokeʻe State Park Private Tour

Journey from Hanapēpē to Waimea, along the only road that crosses the entire island. Follow the path that is steadily leading up the rim of Waimea Canyon, and take in the views of the world famous Nā Pali Coast on Kauai's North Shore, at an elevation of over 4,000 ft (1220 m). Along the way, stop at the most beautiful canyon overlooks to marvel at Kauai's treasures including rainbow-colored canyon walls, the 800-foot (244 m) Waipo'o Falls and thick island vegetation. If you’re feeling up for "stretching your legs", your guide will select the best trails to explore, based on the weather and your group’s interests. Hikes may be 0.25 - 0.5 miles (400 - 800 m) round trip on relatively even terrain. This is a private tour — it will just be you and your private group. Because of this, you are free to go at your own pace and hike as much, or as little, as you would like for the duration of the tour you have selected. Your guide will contact you before the start of your tour to help plan a custom itinerary.

Kauai: Napali Cliff Tops Private Hike

2. Kauai: Napali Cliff Tops Private Hike

Come hike a cliff-top ridge thousands of feet above the ocean. Accessible only by foot, this tour is designed to give you an in-depth look of the Nā Pali Coast from a unique vantage point few have seen. While these hikes can be muddy, slippery, and strenuous, you will be amply rewarded for your effort with sweeping views of the most dramatic sections of the famous 17-mile-long Nā Pali Coastline. Meet your guide and hop into a comfortable bus. Witness a change in vegetation and climate as you transition into the "rain shadow," characterized by the arid farmland of the island’s leeward side (the opposite side of mountains from typical trade wind direction). Along the way, pass through the agricultural towns of Hanapēpē and Waimea and learn the important role they played in Kauai's history. Your tour continues across the center of the island, winding along the rim of Waimea Canyon and to the North Shore, 4,000 feet above the spectacular Nā Pali Coast. Rainbow-colored canyon walls and cool mountain air create an otherworldly ambiance that's unlike anything you've experienced. Stop at a couple of the top Waimea Canyon overlooks, including one with a view of 800-foot Waipo’o Falls, before beginning a ridge hike above the Nāpali Coast (accessed from Kōkeʻe SP) or along the rim of Waimea Canyon (depending on the group and weather/trail conditions that day). There, you will enjoy jaw-dropping views of the world-famous Nā Pali Coast. This is a private tour — it will just be you and your private group. Because of this, you are free to go at your own pace and hike as much, or as little, as you would like for the duration of the tour you have selected. Your guide will contact you before the start of your tour to help plan a custom itinerary.

We chose to do this tour on our first full day on Kawai. My husband and I were traveling with his 82 year old parents (his mom 3 months out from a hip replacement), so we requested that the "hiking" be super easy. I spoke with our tour guide Jenny ahead of time, letting her know of the limitations with our group and she did a wonderful job of showing us the highlights while 100% accommodating the mobility restrictions! This day was one of the highlights of our two week trip to Hawaii and all due to Jenny's outstanding treatment of all of us, especially my MIL! Mahalo!!

Patrick is the absolute best tour guide one can ask for. We thoroughly enjoyed his company, his knowledge, his energy! He went out of his way to make our experience memorable and fun! We highly recommend this tour. Breath taking views and learning about Kauai through this tour was some of the best parts of this island-hopping experience!

Nick was an outstanding tour guide! Showed us secret hikes that locals don't even know about. Brought us to great food and even shared other tips for the rest of our trip. Would book again!!

Amazing adventure with knowledgeable guides! Would highly recommend to anyone.
