Select tour language
This fun and exciting Kauai biking tour is a cruise through Koke'e State Park and Waimea Canyon State Park. You'll be Kauai mountain biking from the rim of the famed Waimea Canyon (elevation 3600 feet or 1100 meters) down 12 miles (19km) of smooth winding blacktop all the way to the shore of the blue Pacific. It's 100% downhill, and 100% fun!
  • Guided downhill bicycle adventure through Hawaiian lava rock landscape
  • Visit Waimea Canyon State Park and Kokee State Park
  • Transportation, bike rental, and locally made snacks included
  • Choose between a sunrise or afternoon tour
What to Expect
Meet your guide at Poipu Plaza at your chosen morning or afternoon departure time. Get fitted for a mountain bike and helmet and board a minivan for the ride to the top of the canyon, about 3,600 feet (1,100 meters). Enjoy snacks of Hawaiian coffee and blueberry muffins (morning tour) or cold drinks and locally made cookies (afternoon tour) on the ride. Take in the views of the red lava rock valley from the top of the canyon before hopping on your bike for the thrilling 12-mile descent on smooth, paved roads that wind through Waimea Canyon State Park. Make several stops on the way down to take in the views and snap photos. Once down the mountain, cycle through the flatlands of Kokee State Park and looking out for native island plants and wildlife. Continue to ride until you reach the ocean where the tour concludes. Hop back in the van for a ride back to Poipu Plaza, where your tour ends.
