Hold on to your seats and get ready to hoot and holler – you’re about to take on the Pua’a Māiki! Board the world-renowned Swiss Military Pinzgauer all-terrain vehicle and ready yourself for a cultural adventure! This off-road expedition treks through one of Hawaiʻi’s most sacred and fabled places, Waimea Valley, to uncover an exhilarating past of ancient Hawaiian history.

Guests will venture deep into the back valleys of Oʻahu’s North Shore while enjoying an array of rugged terrain and wild natural landscapes. Tackle lush jungle trails and climb open windswept ridgelines all from the comfort of your high-stanced, open-aired Pinzgauer. Revel in ʻāina (nature) as you witness rare native plants and take in stunning panoramic views of mountain & coastline from a private mountain overlook!
