Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

An exclusive (4 person max) cultural experience that includes access via UTV then a moderate hike with Kimo, your Native Hawaiian host. Experience Hualālai mountain craters as few ever have!

High above Kona, hidden in the clouds, lies this unique place. Come journey through craters, drylands forest, and historic lava flows amongst native birds and plants. This is not a tour, it's a cultural educational experience in this Sacred Place on private lands not open to the public.

You will have the opportunity to support the reforestation of Hualalai back by planting a Native Hawaiian tree. An experience to be cherished forever.

If you want to experience the unique cultural and natural resources of Hualalai, then this exclusive experience is for you. I look forward to meeting you!

The weather is unpredictable here so be prepared for both hot and cold weather. The fog and clouds may come in at any moment, but, the magic of walking in the clouds is surreal.
Other things to note
Consider your health and safety. This is a 90 minute hike at a high elevation on uneven, rocky ground. Craters have high cliffs and children must be monitored at all times.

I was born and raised on the slopes of Hualalai. My family has been caring for this special place for 4 generations. Hualālai’s natural and cultural resources are unique and amazing. This place is not open to the public, its EXCLUSIVE and by appointment only. Iʻm blessed to share with you Konaʻs breath taking mountain, home of the forest, birds, and craters of beautiful Hualālai.

Her skal du være

We will be high above Kailua-Kona on top of Hualalai Mountain at the 7,000 ft elevation. We will meet at the top of Kaloko Drive. Then we'll take a UTV ride through the forests and hike along trail to craters. The hike will be about 45 minutes each way to a cluster of breathtaking craters. We will then head down the mountain to a rustic cabin and stewardship site to have local lunch and plant a native tree. Inquire for days other than Sun/Wed!

A personalised unique experience you cannot do yourself. Kimo knows his ancestral land well and is such a personable man and does so much for the community. Yes, The UTV ride is very bumpy and the hike up to the ridge is not for weak ankles (about 3 miles total - 9,000 steps!) but the views and craters are spectacular. We even got to see the reclusive I’iwi bird that migrates here only in October. We planted and blessed our Koi trees. Highly recommend this tour🌺👍👍👍👍👍🌺

Everything and more than what was promised in description. Kimo was very generous in sharing his family stories and gave a lot of personal perspective about changes in this magical place. We are hoping that the koa tree that we planted will rise and provide shade for generations to come.

We went hoping to gain perspective on Native Hawaiian connection to the land, and got so much more! Kimo was an incredible storyteller and his ancestral connection to the region was enlightening and soulful. This will be the highlight of our trip!

Absolutely life changing special experience. If you have any interest in learning about Hawaii in a real way this is a must do. Kimo was fantastic and I hope more people can experience this.

This was an awesome adventure to a part of Hawaii that you otherwise won't be able to access. The early morning UTV ride up the mountain provided an excellent opportunity for sightseeing before a late morning weather system came in (which is apparently normal for the environment) and we were relegated with stories of Hawaiian history, Kimo's work to preserve and regrow the land, and an explanation of the flora and fauna that we encountered. After the ride up, we were able to view the craters left over from multiple eruptions and hiked for well over an hour (per our request) before returning home. If you're up for some adventure and want to get a hike in, this trip is for you.

Listening to Kimo’s stories of growing up on the mountain while being treated to some of his favorite views was a once in a lifetime experience. This is an amazing trip worth taking on private lands that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. Kimo is such a knowledgeable local guide and makes the trip even better with his ability to tell you about each individual tree and crater along the way. Don’t skip this one!!
