Kauai Short & Sweet Hiking Adventure

Enjoy a private guided adventure.

Our Short & Sweet Adventure is 1 – 3 hours long. In this short time, we will focus on a quick driving tour of East Side waterfalls or hikes on trails easy – difficult in challenge level. Hiking options include Nounou Mountain (a.k.a. Sleeping Giant), Kuilau Ridge with views of Mount Waiʻaleʻale, as well as short coastal hikes on the South Shore and North Shore. You will have an opportunity to discuss your specific interests and ability level directly with your guide before the adventure.

Of course, the more time we have, the deeper into nature we can go. If you are unsure of your speed and ability as a hiker book our Half-Day Hike or Full-Day Hike so you will have even more time to explore at your own pace (in most cases your tour can be extended, and the price can be adjusted accordingly after your tour if you let us know in advance).

DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION Pickup details will be included in your confirmation email.
DEPARTURE TIME Please arrive promptly 15-30 minutes before your tour to check-in.
WHAT TO BRING You will need to provide your own lunch.

Please bring enough water to accommodate your needs during the hike.

We recommend closed-toe shoes over sandals.

Normally, Kauaʻi temperatures are in the 80s, so shorts and tank tops are appropriate on most hikes. However, we recommend asking your guide during your pre-hike check-in about whether pants are more appropriate for your adventure. Sometimes trailside grasses, ferns, and other jungle plants can cause scratching to your legs in shorts. Hats are also nice for sunny days.
