Kauai: Napali Cliff Tops Private Hike

5. Kauai: Napali Cliff Tops Private Hike

Come hike a cliff-top ridge thousands of feet above the ocean. Accessible only by foot, this tour is designed to give you an in-depth look of the Nā Pali Coast from a unique vantage point few have seen. While these hikes can be muddy, slippery, and strenuous, you will be amply rewarded for your effort with sweeping views of the most dramatic sections of the famous 17-mile-long Nā Pali Coastline. Meet your guide and hop into a comfortable bus. Witness a change in vegetation and climate as you transition into the "rain shadow," characterized by the arid farmland of the island’s leeward side (the opposite side of mountains from typical trade wind direction). Along the way, pass through the agricultural towns of Hanapēpē and Waimea and learn the important role they played in Kauai's history. Your tour continues across the center of the island, winding along the rim of Waimea Canyon and to the North Shore, 4,000 feet above the spectacular Nā Pali Coast. Rainbow-colored canyon walls and cool mountain air create an otherworldly ambiance that's unlike anything you've experienced. Stop at a couple of the top Waimea Canyon overlooks, including one with a view of 800-foot Waipo’o Falls, before beginning a ridge hike above the Nāpali Coast (accessed from Kōkeʻe SP) or along the rim of Waimea Canyon (depending on the group and weather/trail conditions that day). There, you will enjoy jaw-dropping views of the world-famous Nā Pali Coast. This is a private tour — it will just be you and your private group. Because of this, you are free to go at your own pace and hike as much, or as little, as you would like for the duration of the tour you have selected. Your guide will contact you before the start of your tour to help plan a custom itinerary.

What people are saying about Kapaʻa

The self driving tour was great. We were able to see parts of Kauai that we never dreamed of seeing. I would use this service again on other islands. The only thing I would have like to have had was some Hawaiian music played between some of the spots.

Nick was an outstanding tour guide! Showed us secret hikes that locals don't even know about. Brought us to great food and even shared other tips for the rest of our trip. Would book again!!
