Description

Hike to spectacular private waterfalls for impressive views of the North Shore. Trek along with your guide as you explore all 5 tiers of Kalihiwai Falls, cross a waterfall, hike the lowland rainforest, and view the beautiful terrain of a pristine private ranch.

This tour gives you access to the top of Pu’u O’ Henui, a 500-foot (152-m) gain. Enjoy stunning 360-degree views of the entire North Shore, hike the lowland rainforest, and hear about Kauai’s history, flora, and fauna. Next, scramble down a 10-foot (3-m) rock wall and then, secured by a safety belt and assisted by your guide, cross a waterfall. The view of the fall's tiers from the top is unforgettable.

At the lower tier, you have an 80-foot (24-m) waterfall all to yourself. Go swimming, explore the falls, and relax with a tasty picnic lunch. Then your hike continues up-valley along several streams. Cross another waterfall and scramble back up the 10-foot (3-m) rock wall while you are secured by a safety belt.

Total hiking time is 3 hours and covers approximately 4 miles (6.4 m) across varied terrain. With impressive views of the North Shore and cascading waterfalls, this tour is rated moderately strenuous with rough-hewn stairs and several stream crossings.
