There’s no shortage of adventure on Hawaii — the island has over 4,028 square miles of land (and it’s still growing!). Visitors enjoy biking, and horseback riding amongst the island's waterfalls, beaches and volcanic landscapes. With so many microclimates to experience, you can stargaze on the sometimes snow-covered slopes of Maunakea, explore the botanical gardens of the Hamakua Coast, or play on the world-class golf courses of the Kohala Coast.
There are also unforgettable hiking trails throughout the island. In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, visitors can hike through the Nahuku (Thurston Lava Tube), Devastation Trail or the challenging Crater Rim trail, which encircles the summit of Kilauea Caldera.
Whether biking atop Kilauea or touring a coffee farm, be sure to pack comfortable shoes when you visit!
