KapohoKine Adventures - Waipio Valley Explorer (HILO)

Explore the Hamakua Coast, the ancient breadbasket of Hawaii Island, on this KapohoKine Adventures tour!

Head off to Rainbow Falls, the iconic 80 ft tall waterfall system known for giving a rainbow effect!  After viewing, continue on to a drive through Onomea Scenic Route.  The route is a 4-mile section of original old highway that has historic wooden bridges, waterfalls, and lush tropical foliage.

Next is a stop at the famous What's Shakin' for lunch.  After lunch we'll leave Onomea behind on our way to the Akaka Falls.  There's a short walk through a fern and orchid studded forest to get to the expansive views of the tumbling 440 ft Akaka Falls.

Next transfer over to a four-wheel-drive van for a careful descent into Waipio Valley, the Valley of the Kings.  Full of steep cliffs carved out by cascading waterfalls, it's more than a thousand feet to the valley floor.  Waipio Valley was once inhabited by thousands but today is home to taro farms and wild horses and a is mystical, lush place rarely visited.  Explore the valley for a while before driving back out and returning to Hilo.
