Take a journey into the beautiful Waipio Valley with the original Four-Wheel Drive tour of Waipio Valley. Witness the breath taking views of the valley as you descend to the valley floor along the one lane dirt road. The tour vehicle, a 4x4 van, has the side windows removed ensuring unobstructed views enabling you to take incredible photos of all that you see. You will have multiple stops along the way for the best photo opportunities. Your guide will share with you the history and legends surrounding this ancient valley. You will feel and understand the energy of this very special place.

What will we see?

Waterfalls: One of the most famous sights in the valley is Hi'ilawe Falls, a towering 1,200 foot waterfall. The waterfall will be in view from a good portion of the road as you descend into the valley. A stop will be made so you can get great pictures of this waterfall. However, going to this waterfall is forbidden, as you would need to go through private property to reach it. On rainy days there are many more waterfalls that become visible cascading from the steep cliffs surrounding the valley.

Wild Horses: While an encounter with the wild horses of Waipio cannot be guaranteed, it is very common to see them, often times they will come right up to the tour vehicle as they are very friendly.

Native Tropical Plants: Waipio Valley is a lush tropical wonderland, with thriving and diverse Hawaiian plants and flowers. Everything grows in abundance here.

Freshwater streams: Fresh water streams weave and wind their way through the valley, irrigating the many taro patches before meeting the ocean. In fact, this is what the valley is named after. Waipio means curved water in the Hawaiian language. During your tour, you will cross a number of these streams in the tour vehicle, often stopping in the middle to give you incredible photo opportunities.

What type of vehicle is used for the tour

The tour vehicle is a 4x4 van that has the side windows removed. With the widows being removed, you have unobstructed views making for easy picture taking from the vehicle. Without windows you are also able to take in the scents from all of the tropical plants that grow throughout the valley.
