Hawaii has lots of beautiful islands to choose from, but if you can only visit one, choose Kauai. The oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, the “Garden Isle” has been featured in many movies including the animated film “Lilo & Stitch” and the dinosaur flick “Jurassic Park.” As you arrive on the island you are sure to be taken aback by the sheer magnificence of it all, and to be certain that you see everything there is to see it is suggested that you take a guided tour.
On one of the many helicopter tours available, you can marvel at the gorgeous scenery from above, which is an opportunity that you do not want to miss. There is nothing quite like the high you will feel as you soar above the islands and experience them from all angles. You will have the chance to see Nawiliwili Harbor, Waimea Canyon, and Menehune Fishpond, which is rumored to have been built by leprechauns entirely in one night. You will also float over Kipu Kai and the Tunnel of Trees, as well as Olokele Canyon and Na Pali.
If you are looking to have your fun on the ground, consider taking an ATV tour and navigating your way through thick vegetation to the Kahili Mountain Range or to the Koloa Plantation, depending on which tour you choose. With the latter, you may even get to see a spectacular whale show as you travel along the Poipu shoreline. This typically happens from December through March. The former features amazing views of a private waterfall which, if you are feeling adventurous, you can go cliff-jumping near later in the day.
Visit Kauai and you will be in for the experience of a lifetime. Don’t forget to bring extra film for your camera since you will be snapping continuously from beginning to end, and keep an eye on www.kauaitours.net for more exciting options for your Hawaiian vacation.
