Follow your guide for an adventure you can’t find in your car when you hop your ATV to go off the beaten track and into the wilder parts of Kaua’i. Enjoy the excitement of driving through mud pools and streams on your way to a hidden waterfall or up one of the interior mountains. Dirt and adventure are the keys to an ATV tour, so good physical condition is often a requirement. Some also combine with short hikes or zip lines. If you want the exciting way to see some spectacular and often missed sights, grab your closed toed shoes and hop on an ATV! A snack or lunch may be provided, depending on the adventure you choose.

ATV tours are for riders 5 years old and up. Depending on the tour operator, drivers must be 16 or 18 years old with picture ID or valid driver’s license. Options are available for solo drivers, and 2- 4- and 6- passenger ATVs.

Visit a working ranch and see breathtaking views from the back of a horse with a leisurely horseback tour. A variety of tours are available from a handful of tour operators, and any of them will provide an in depth look into the landscape of Kaua’i. Experienced guides will lead you along trails as you revel in the unique views and hear more about Hawaii’s history, culture, flora, and fauna. Many tours also include time off the horse to hike, swim, or zip line. Whether you’ve ridden a horse before or not, be sure to explore this unique way to see Kaua’i’s back country.

Horseback tours are a great family adventure for children age 8 and older. All scheduled tours are walking only tours. Experienced riders may be interested in inquiry about private rides for additional options.


For a relaxing morning or afternoon, tubing on Kaua’i is a unique, must-include activity. In the late 1800s, sugar cane fields and plantations were flourishing near Lihue, but more water was needed to sustain the industry. To answer this need, in the 1870’s, engineers designed and Chinese laborers hand-dug an intricate system of ditches, tunnels and flumes to deliver water from the interior rain forest to the thirsty fields. With the closure of the Lihue sugar plantations in 2000, Kaua’i Backcountry Adventures was able to open a section of these waterways for exclusive tours. Starting with an 4WD journey to the interior of the island, you’ll gather your tubes and embark on a one of a kind, guided journey through open canals, flumes, and underground tunnels as you learn about the history of the island.

This is a very popular activity, so advance reservations are highly recommended. Tours are open to anyone 5 years and older. Bring your swimsuit or water clothing, closed toed shoes and sense of awe on this fascinating water tour. Headlamps and lunch are provided.


Several shops on the island offer bike rentals for your use, at hourly or weekly rates. Biking can be a great way to cruise around Hanalei or Princeville or enjoy an afternoon exploring the coast on the beachside path in Kapaa. The gentle beachside path travels about 8 miles between South Kapaa and Kealia Beach. With amazing views and the chance to spot a sea turtle or whale, the trail is a wonderful individual or family activity.

Beach cruisers, tandem bikes, kid’s bikes and child trailers are all available for rent. Some can also be dropped off at your vacation rental home, if rented for multiple days. Helmets are mandatory in Hawai’i and are usually included in the rental cost, along with a bike lock.

For road or mountain bikes, check with a local bike shop.
