Not to be outdone by the famous beaches that ring the island, Kauai’s lush landscapes are a feast for the senses. Whether it’s a leisurely horseback ride to a remote waterfall or an exhilarating zipline adventure through the jungle, the Garden Isle is a true adventurer’s playground.
Hiking is one of the best ways to discover the island, as 90% of Kauai is inaccessible by car. Lace up your hiking boots and explore Kokee State Park and Waimea Canyon on the West Side, with hundreds of trails and breathtaking vistas waiting around every turn.
Adrenaline junkies will find plenty of thrills on mountain biking trails, flying through the rainforest on a zipline safari or traversing rocky ridges on an ATV adventure. There’s really no limit to the land activities on Kauai—just remember to pack comfortable shoes.
For those seeking a quieter pace, the island offers plenty of additional opportunities to explore local culture, history and more — including museums, plantation tours such as Kilohana Plantation, historical landmarks, farmers markets and more.
Explore all the island has to offer in this section of the site. No matter what you choose, the island’s peaceful vibe and breathtaking natural beauty will create indelible memories of your visit.
