Waipio ATV with Waterfall Swim
Discover the verdant Waipio Valley from black-sand beaches to eucalyptus and ginger forests. Originally populated over 1,000 years ago, the valley’s history will unfold before you through the mists of time.
Motor your way to the top of the Waipio Valley for an unforgettable experience of old Hawaii. Ride your ATV from the beaches and rainforests to the top of the 1,200-foot (366-m) Hiilawe Falls, Hawaii's highest single-fall waterfall.
Your guide recants the tales and lore of the Waipio Valley while you barrel through the viridian rainforest—the valley was once the political and religious center of Hawaii. The journey climaxes with a swim in the headwaters of Hiilawe Falls.
