Venture Insight

On foot your explorations will lead to famous and hidden wonders of Hawaii – follow trails to white, green and black sand beaches, giant craters, frozen lava lakes, stunning waterfalls and ancient rock art sites. Paths cross through tropical high-altitude swamps, endemic cloud forests and the stark high altitude alpine desert of Mauna Kea, leading to incredible viewpoints that overlook the famous North Shore of Kauai. There is ample time to enjoy the magnificent beaches – many known only to locals. With a little luck, snorkel with sea turtles and manta rays, glimpse humpback whales and pods of spinner dolphins.

Difficulty: Gentle to Not So Gentle


Green Sand Beach

A ‘not to miss’ experience is to visit the green sand beach of Papakōlea – one of only two in the USA.

Kilauea Iki Crater

The trail crosses warm 50 year old lava with steam coming out from cracks in the earth caused by rainwater that has percolated + boiled.

Kalalau Trail

The Kalalau Trail is a steep footpath that runs through the park cutting across five valleys allowing travellers to explore the secluded beaches + sea caves.
