What activities are available in Kauai?

The island of Kauai is renowned for its amazing things to do, which include exploring its intense collection of beauty. We’re talking vast jungle vegetation, rivers, waterfalls and, most notably, volcanic craters that make this an island of choice for geology enthusiasts. Add amazing landmarks like Waimea Canyon — nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” — and the rolling mountains of the Na Pali Coast, and you’ll definitely see the impact of the volcanic presence on the island. This gives Kauai the label of "Garden Island," a proper moniker given all of the nature-filled landscapes and greenery that sprout from the ash-laden soil of the area.

So what are the best things to do in Kauai Island? You can start everything with an ultimate helicopter adventure that will take you along the coast. It will give you a privileged 360º bird's-eye view from above to truly get the sense of the magnitude of the island’s natural splendor. Or you can also go deep into the heart of Kauai and refresh at its hidden Dundee Falls, where you can even feel some thrills by rappelling.

Speaking of thrills, you can get your adrenaline fix by going on Kauai’s longest zip line course, which will have you soaring above amazing views of mountains and waterscapes. Or if you prefer staying grounded but still feel the exhilaration, take the Koloa ATV tour and experience a high-speed adventure through the wilderness of Kauai’s southernmost point.

And of course, you can take it nice and slow and explore the island at a more leisurely pace with a scenic bus tour around Waimea Canyon for a great look at some of the most impressive natural displays in the United States. Or wind down your day with a sunset sail at Na Pali for a relaxing time around the coast, looking out for sea life and feeling the sweet breeze from the Pacific Ocean.
