Hiking Tours on the Best Little Trail on Oahu
The “Iki” starts off with a 7-mile off-road ride to the trailhead and continues with a hike through natural beauty. Hikers will scale windswept ridges, cross freshwater streams, and trek through rich tropical valleys. See wild bananas, guava, bamboo thickets, scented gingers, and other spectacular rainforest plants. Revel in Hawaii’s fascinating history, culture, and ancient mythology as shared by an expert Hawaiian guide. If that’s not enough, how about a rejuvenating swim in a private mountain pool? End your hike with a light gourmet lunch. You’ll smile all the way home. This is the best little trail on the island and the perfect way to experience Oahu.

Great guides and this was the perfect length of hike for our whole family. We all got out with nature and had plenty of energy for the rest of our day.

We absolutely loved the North Shore and the experience that we had swimming in the private mountain pools on this tour was completely unforgettable. This is a fantastic half-day experience that you can use the bond with your family and really see some of the best parts of Oahu.

This tour has it all, off road ride to the trail, expert tour guides, great view from above the cliffs and a pool to refresh yourself. Me and my brother enjoyed so much, and it was awesome how our tour guide knew the story of ancient Hawaii.

My teenage kids loved it so much, I was not in the shape that I thought I was but the tour guides were very patient with me, thank you, guys!!. I loved all the beautiful plants and flowers, and we also saw some wild pigs and lots of birds. It is such an amazing feeling once at the top of the trail. thank you for the memories!!!

This tour was more than what we had imagined. Starting with the amount of knowledge this tour guides have, they knew about all the history and the grand battles of the Ohau in the Waimea Valley and all about the fauna and flora of the place, and to top it all a nice dip on a refreshing mountain water pool. It’s a great adventure all around!
