Overview
Go off-roading in Kauai on a 4x4 tour of Kipu Ranch, a historic landscape of mountains, valleys, and the secluded Kipu Kai beach. Get a lesson in driving a 4WD vehicle, or ride as a passenger if you prefer. Follow a guide to reach hidden and remote parts of the private ranch you’ll recognize from movies like Jurassic Park and The Descendants, stopping to take photos at each spot.
What to Expect
Meet at Kipu Ranch and gear up with a provided helmet and safety goggles. Get a lesson in operating a 2- or 4-person 4WD vehicle, and practice a bit if you decide to take the driver’s seat.

Head out with a guide to tackle challenging, unpaved trails that climb 800 feet (244 meters) from sea level to the top of Mt. Haupu and Kipu Kai ridge. Take in views of remote Kipu Kai beach, and descend through the tropical forests and river of Huleia Valley.

Along the way, see the rugged landscapes where hit movies like Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Descendants were filmed. Put yourself in the scene during photo stops, and take a ride on a rope swing worthy of Indiana Jones himself.

Really fun activity to do in Hawaii

We really enjoyed our ATV ride through the ranch. Learned some history about the land and my college - aged kids really enjoyed driving the ATV's. Fun family thing to do while you're on the island. The guides were great.
