Kauai Trails and Nature
The duality of Kauai is one of the elements that makes it so unique–one day can be spent biking the coast, utilizing Hokuala’s 17 miles of trail. Another day can be spent hiking through the jungle on a trail that winds through canopies of tropical trees, eventually discovering a magnificent waterfall. The diversity of Kauai’s flora makes every trail brand new, making you forget for a moment that you’re on a small island in the pacific. Whether you’re looking for an amazing view of one of Kauai’s great valleys or canyons, or a trip around the island’s rim, the hiking and biking in Kauai will not disappoint.
For water lovers who want to go beyond the beach, Timbers Kauai adventure guides can send you off on a number of floating adventures. Consider hiring a boat and taking the family for a trip along the NaPali coast, even grandma and grandpa can enjoy. Perhaps you’d like a more thrilling tour of the sea, in which case the Kauai Beach Boys will take you out on an outrigger canoe trip, one of the most exciting trips out on the ocean. One of our favorite excursions is sailing to Kipu’Kai, a secluded beach only navigable by boats. The kids will truly feel like seafaring explorers from days gone by, as they explore a place untouched by civilization.
Timbers Kauai promises days of fun, but beyond the resort is a lifetime of incredible experiences well worth exploring while you are on Kauai. For the adventurous, ziplining or an ATV trip are great activities for the day. For the explorers in your party, a tour of the island by boat or helicopter allows you to really take in the island. For the nature lover, consider a horseback ride or guided hike, or if it’s the world below the water they’re interested in, snorkel, snuba, or scuba are all an option. In fact, part of the island exploration is exploring all of the awesome activities available.
