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!

Know More about this tour

You can coast at the crack of dawn, or, cruise it at the end of the day. The early birds will be blessed with soft low angled light that draws out the colors of the spectacular canyon. You won't be snoozin' - you'll be cruisin'! An "in-flight" beverage service of fresh-brewed Kauai Coffee and blueberry muffins hot out of the oven is included as you ride up in the van to begin your Kauai biking tour.

If you're not into the early bird thing, try the late afternoon tour. You'll still enjoy the same low angled light for accentuation of the canyon's rugged terrain, only from the west rather than the east. Shadows and colors jump out with soft, brilliant greens, reds and purple highlights. In addition, the forbidden Island of Niihau is visible off to the west. Cold soft drinks, spring water and Kauai cookies will be served on the afternoon tour.

Comfortable helmets and safe operating procedures make for a ride that's safe and controlled, but still fun and exciting. You'll be riding through one of the most beautiful and interesting places on the planet, so of course, you'll stop along the way for photos and narrative on history, culture, folklore and legends. You'll get hands-on and identify native plants, birds and trees. You'll be able to quiz your guides about the best Kauai hiking trails located in Koke'e State Park and Waimea Canyon State Park while you're in the area. As well as having a fun ride in a beautiful place, you'll learn about what makes Kauai special!

    We were scheduled for Monday but due to weather, Outfitters Kauai called and rescheduled us for today (Friday)! WHAT an experience!!! Issac and Falcon were phenomenal guides! We did the 6am trip (getting up at 4am to make the hour drive to meet). It was gorgeous, entertaining, very enjoyable and we even saw double rainbows!! Safety was a priority and they were very conscientious about making everyone feel comfortable! Thanks from your TN visitors...and Go Broncos!!! Thank you both for a great experience!!!

    Not something you do everyday! I would do it again.

    This is a really fun experience. You take a van that seats 12 up the canyon and then bike down it. It can be fast going around curves that can be 90 degree angles, but super fun! Im 63 and managed quite nicely! After stopping for photo ops part way down in a few locations, you end up riding to the beach to watch the sunset and enjoy water and a snack. Our guides were Isaac and Kevin, who were both a lot of fun, super informative, and made the trip a super delight! Highly recommend this adventure!

    This was indeed fun but nearly an hour to get to the starting point and all in a fully packed 15 passenger van with poor ventilation was not enjoyable. The bikes were worn out looking beach combers, although did have very good disc brakes of course. Expected a bit better bike for the ride being all down hill and at time fast. The guides were colorful and fun, just not sure of all the historical facts about Kauai were correct. One fact I'm sure of from them, you can live off Spam and Ramon with a pinch of Soy sauce for 1 a day. :

    The Canyon is breathtaking and the down hill run is a hoot. The leaders correctly emphasized safety, especially important for novice riders. My only criticism is that the number people exceeded the capacity of the van used to transport the riders to and from the site.

    This was an amazing excursion. Keith and Zach were our guides and they made sure we were safe and comfortable the entire time. They also provided some history and even a little botany.
    The bikes are beach cruisers and they keep several spares available in case there are any issues on the ride down. They give you a little practice run before you get on the road in order to test your bike riding ability as well as let you feel what the bikes are like.
    You don't have to be terribly physically fit because mostly you are gripping your brakes as you fly down 12 miles of paved road. Although there was traffic coming up the hill while we rode down, no one ever passed us going down the hill which might have been because we had the early morning excursion. We liked in the early morning excursion because the weather was perfect without being hot.
    The guys provided coffee and great blueberry muffins for the drive up which took about 45 minutes . If you get car sick, I'd suggest sitting closer to the front of the van because we were in the back row and its definitely a twisty road. I generally don't get motion sick, but even I was a little nauseous on occasion.
    It is a great trip and I'd suggest it to anyone looking for some time away from the beach and the opportunity to see some wonderful landscape.
    The guys were also very good about pointing out local gems for food and sightseeing. They even swung by the coffee plantation by mutual agreement of all of us on the tour. They really want you to have a good time and it shows. Zach and Keith are very laid back and easy to interact with. They are super knowledgeable And have great anecdotes to tell on the drive up. Above all, your safety is key and they keep the tour size relatively small, which makes for a better, more specialized experience.
    You won't regret taking this tour.
