Explore Hawaii’s Waimea Canyon, formed thousands of years ago by the passage of water through lava rock, on a bike tour. All equipment and your guide are included in this trek from the top, traveling down 12 miles of paved, winding trails. Pass through lava rock landscape, into Koke’e State Park, and end at Kauai’s coast.
  • Guided downhill bicycle adventure through Hawaiian lava rock landscape
  • Visit Waimea Canyon State Park and Kokee State Park
  • Transportation, bike rental, and locally made snacks included
  • Choose between a sunrise or afternoon tour
What to Expect
Meet your guide at Poipu Plaza at your chosen morning or afternoon departure time. Get fitted for a mountain bike and helmet and board a minivan for the ride to the top of the canyon, about 3,600 feet (1,100 meters). Enjoy snacks of Hawaiian coffee and blueberry muffins (morning tour) or cold drinks and locally made cookies (afternoon tour) on the ride. Take in the views of the red lava rock valley from the top of the canyon before hopping on your bike for the thrilling 12-mile descent on smooth, paved roads that wind through Waimea Canyon State Park. Make several stops on the way down to take in the views and snap photos. Once down the mountain, cycle through the flatlands of Kokee State Park and looking out for native island plants and wildlife. Continue to ride until you reach the ocean where the tour concludes. Hop back in the van for a ride back to Poipu Plaza, where your tour ends.

While I looked forward to this adventure I was surprised by the few sights of the Waimea Canyon on the downhill portion of the bike ride. It is a thrill to ride the road downhill. There are great sights along the way with one stop. For a look at the lower (green section) of the

We took three adult children with us on this trip and had a blast. Bruce and Mattese were excellent. They made everyone feel comfortable and let us go at our own pace. Their knowledge of the island was interesting and relevant. You are able to go as fast or slow as you need to

The Wiamea Canyon downhill bicycle ride was very leisurely and scenic. The pace was not too fast and the bicycle was very comfortable. Our guides, Wade, who drove the van behind us, and Melissa, who lead us on the bicycles, were great. Although there was not a lot of traffic the
