Kauai: Napali Cliff Tops Private Hike

2. 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

This was an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Susan, has lived on Kauai for decades and was very generous in sharing information. Not only on the places we visited, but Kauai in general, especially restaurants. We have a new appreciation for Kombucha - delicious, not the vinegary stuff I've had in the past. I never would have tried Saiman unless I went on the tour, it was a delicious experience. The mahi mahi burger and beef burger were sooooo delicious, and the Shave ice was one of the best. Tour was very well organized and smoothly run. DO take this tour, and arrive hungry! Definitely something we'll do again!

Excellent hike and activity. Outstanding views from amazing vantage points at both the Canyon / waterfalls and Napoli coast. Jenny (and Bubby the friendly dog) were great guide(s) and we had such a fun time. Easily our best day in Kauai. Jenny’s local knowledge was amazing and we had a great picnic meal / smoothie as well with her during the trip.

Susan was excellent and we appreciated a tour focused on food from local owned business. We should have taken the tour early on in our trip to visit the places suggested by Susan.

The food was amazing as well as the tour guide Susan. We learned Hawaiian history, culture and she made us feel so comfortable. Excellent experience!

Very interesting tour and excellent guide! Learned a lot about the sustsinabme food industry in Kauai
