What Are the Best Tours in Kauai?

If you’re taking a Kauai vacation, your time on the island is limited, so it pays to know the best tours in Kauai.

Known as the “Golden Isle” for the stunning tropical rainforest that covers much of the island, Kauai is the oldest and one of the most beautiful islands to visit in Hawaii.

Its rugged coastline is lined with cliffs and pinnacles, that have featured in a number of famous Hollywood movies and the unique Waimea Canyon, “The Canyon of the Pacific”, has to be seen to be believed.

One of the greatest ways to experience the island’s exceptional landscape is to take an organized tour.

Here are some of the best tours in Kauai to make your experience one to remember:

The Best Kauai Bicycle Tour

A great way to see the island of Kauai is on bicycle.

With Outfitters Kauai you can take a Waimea Canyon Bicycle Tour through the Ko’kee State Park and the Waimea State Park. There is no better way to enjoy the canyon’s rim road – 12 miles of winding road downhill to the Pacific, it’s a real thrill.

The tour is not only fun but it’s also informative, with knowledgeable guides stopping to tell you about the native history, culture and flora and fauna of the area.

The Best Kauai Four-Wheeling

Taking a four-wheel drive and guided hike is a great way to explore Kauai’s extensive rainforest.

Sign up with Aloha Kauai Tours on their Four Wheel Drive and Hiking Adventure and get up-close to the Opaekaa Falls, Wailua Reservoir, the Keehua Arboretum before the jeep takes you as deep as you can go into Kauai’s interior rainforest.

Hike through the Jurassic Park gates and learn more from your guides about the culture and history of the Hawaiian rainforest.

The Best Kauai Horseback Riding

Feel at one with nature by taking your tour through Kauai on horseback.

Princeville Ranch offer some great horseback tours through the island, you can opt for a private ride, where you choose what you would like to see on the island, or you can join the Waterfall Picnic Horseback Tour.

This tour takes you across the ranch with spectacular views of the ocean and mountains, before hiking to a 80-foot-high waterfall that you can swim in and enjoying a picnic beside the pool.

The Best Kauai Hiking Tour

There is no better way to get to grips with the beauty of Kauai and really see the island than to walk. And by taking an organized hiking tour you can learn so much more about the island.

Princeville Ranch Adventures take you on a moderately strenuous trek with beautiful mountain and ocean views, to Kalihiwai Falls. The fern-lined waterfall has a swimming hole where you can float on inner tubes and rest after your walk. The hike also includes stream crossings and a ten-foot rock wall descent.

The Best Kauai Bus and Boat Tour

If you want to see more of the island and don’t want too much walking or riding, then the best way is to jump on a bus and enjoy the ride through the island.

Polynesian Adventure Tours offers a Waimea Canyon and Wailua River Tour by bus, that includes a boat trip on the river. The tour also takes in the Hanapepe Valley, the spouting horn blowhole at Poipu and historic Old Koloa, famous for starting sugar production on the island, plus a number of other sites on the island.
