Meet at Waipio Valley Artworks in beautiful downtown Kukuihaele, a 90-minute drive from Kona and 75-minute drive from Hilo, to begin your ATV adventure.

After a safety orientation and ATV demonstration, strap on your provided safety gear, hop on your personal ATV or open-air buggy, driven by a guide, and then ride through the breathtaking scenery of ancient Waipio Valley, featuring sheer 2,000-foot (610-meter) cliffs and vistas of black-sand beaches.

Admire this serene, awe-inspiring and majestic place – a sacred royal land that’s the center of many Hawaiian legends and folklore -- and catch amazing panoramic views as you follow your guide through eucalyptus forests.

Stop to swim at a beautiful waterfall pond, created by the waters of Hiilawe Falls, one of the tallest and most powerful waterfalls in Hawaii. Then, see the back side of Parker Ranch, one of Hawaii's largest ranches, and head to the top of Waipio to ride along the rim.

We had the best time. I never rode an ATV before and was nervous, but they let me do a few practice runs and I was comfortable before the real ride. The track was amazing. It was fun dirt roads with dips and rocks and hills that allowed for a rough and fun terrain ride. It was raining, they provided ponchos, but this just added to the adventure. They allow more time than other ATV tours and this was so worth it! Would do it again!

Highly recommended to take this tour!!! Disappointed with your handling of the booking. We booked it for Friday. Drove all the way up there to find out that you did NOT book it. The people were very nice and we were able to reschedule for Saturday morning!!!
