The islands of Hawaii are perfect for outdoor adventures, with each island offering a different experience. We recommend island hopping and as Hawaii is typically reached via flights from San Francisco or Los Angeles it is also a wonderful opportunity to combine with a city stay.

Hawaii Island also known as ‘The Big Island’ is home to the Volcanoes National Park with one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea Volcano, and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage and World Biosphere site.  Visit the Hamakua coast with its stunning sea views, waterfalls and rainforests.  Hike to see the Akaka and Kahuna Falls whilst for a truly magical experience night snorkel amongst Manta Rays as they feed on plankton.

Maui ‘The Valley Isle’ is the perfect place for watching humpback whales, snorkelling with sea turtles, seals and dolphins.  Trek or ride on horseback through Haleakala National Park, home to Maui’s highest peak and many endangered species, enjoy the spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

Oahu ‘The Gathering Place’ is the third largest island but most populated with the state capital of Honolulu and the memorial of Pearl Harbour.

Kauai ‘The Garden Isle’ offers an opportunity to go ziplining and get a unique perspective of the lush landscape.  Visit Waimea Canyon, the ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific’, hike Kokee State Park ideal for beginner and experienced hikers or kayak the Wailua River.

Molokai, where Hawaiian culture thrives.  Relax on 3 miles of white sand at Papohaku Beach or ride a mule into the Kalaupapa National Historical Park.

Lanai is an island of contrasts; luxurious resorts perfect for golf lovers contrast with rugged back roads best explored by 4 wheel drive.  Visit Keahiakawelo – Garden of the Gods with its ‘lunar landscape’.  Discover the secluded Polihua Beach where honu (Hawaii’s green sea turtles) and humpback whales have been seen.
