As the westernmost publicly accessible Hawaiian island, Kauai’s wild, untamed terrain lies waiting for discovery and adventure. Enjoy Kauai Hawaii activities such as rugged hikes, cliffside trails, thundering waterfalls, and vast ocean surrounding this tiny island. From the remote mountains to the lush, forested valleys, to the vibrant sea, Kauai’s terrain is made for adventure.
Soar at Top Speeds Over Lush Rainforests
Take a zipline tour with Koloa Zipline to soar headfirst over Kauai’s tropical terrain on ziplines that reach up to a half mile in length. Eight lines will have you zipping above the rainforest for 3.5 hours of adrenaline inducing fun. The “Flyin Kauai’in” harness allows you to zip head first, in a traditional upright position, tandem, or if you are feeling particularly adventurous, the aerobatic position. Koloa Zipline is located in Kauai’s south shore town of Koloa at 3477A Weliweli Road.

Kayak Hawaii Activities Beyond the Pavement
Leave the asphalt in your rearview mirror and head off road across 3,000 acres of backcountry trails for a Kauai adventure vacation. Kipu Ranch Adventures offers 4×4 excursions across privately owned land, where you can explore waterfalls and enjoy dramatic island views. Choose from a Kawasaki Teryx4 UTV, Kawasaki Mule Pro-Fxt6 UTV, Ultra Eco Buggy, or Expedition Teryx4 800 for your off-roading adventure. The VIP Triple Trail Expedition will gain you the most riding time and have you exploring three trails through open view, mountain, and jungle sections, as well as a private waterfall. Kipu Ranch is centrally located in Lihue at 235 Kipu Rd. To book your off-roading adventure, visit their website or contact them with questions at 808-246-9288 or [email protected]
Kayak the Na Pali
For adventure seekers, the Na Pali Coast is an alluring draw. Inaccessible by vehicle, to see the awe-inspiring sea cliffs of the Na Pali, hiking or sea craft are the only options. Sure, you could sit aboard a luxury boat and cruise along the coast, but exploring in a kayak will reveal breathtaking views for your efforts, as well as allow you to explore sea caves not possible with larger craft. On a kayak tour with Napali Kayak, you will paddle 10-12 miles from the remote Polihale Beach to the even more remote Miloli’i Beach located along the Na Pali coastline. Along the way, you will explore sea caves and gaze at impeccable mountain views. Your time exploring Miloli’i Beach is a once in a lifetime experience and you will be one of only a few onsite, as this beach is only accessible by boat. The thrilling return to shore amid rollicking waves will be a memorable ending of your trip. Na Pali Kayak is located in Hanalei at 5075 Kuhio Hwy.
