Explore the ancient breadbasket of Hawaii Island on this unique exploration of the lush Hamakua Coast. Start with a drive to Rainbow Falls. This iconic waterfall features an 80-foot tall twin waterfall system. Look for the rainbow effect that gives the waterfall its name! Continue the drive through the Onomea Scenic Route, a 4-mile section of the original old highway punctuated with historic wooden bridges, waterfalls, and lush tropical foliage. Leaving Onomea behind, drive to Akaka Falls for a short walk through the fern forest studded with orchids to see this majestic beauty. Enjoy expansive views of the falls tumbling 440 feet. Finally, transfer to four-wheel drive van for the careful drive down into Waipio Valley. Known as the Valley of the Kings, Waipio Valley is a place of impossibly steep cliffs carved by waterfalls cascading more than a thousand feet to the valley floor. Once inhabited by thousands and now still home to taro farms and wild horses, Waipio Valley is a lush, mystical place rarely visited. Explore the valley before making the steep drive back out and returning to Hilo. Approx 6 hours.
