Ride an ATV from Mountain to SeaBig Island
North Kohala is a sparsely populated, wildly beautiful region, making it an ideal place for OFF-ROAD EXPLORATION. Behind the wheel of an all-terrain vehicle and with a guide who knows the area’s terrain, history and culture, be prepared for a ride into parts unknown.
ATV OUTFITTERS Hawai‘i is owned by long-time NORTH KOHALA residents who’ll ride with you on ATVs specifically designed for rugged off-road travel. Experience the real Hawai‘i on an unforgettable ride over private ranchlands, past spectacular 200-foot sea cliffs and through lush, tropical rainforests. Knowledgeable fifth-generation Native Hawaiian guides lead you to a hidden waterfall and secluded beach that King Kamehameha once favored. The only company to offer DOUBLE-SEAT AND SIDE-BY-SIDE ATVS, it’s an adventure for the entire family.
This is more than just a rough-and-tumble ride through a gorgeous landscape; it’s a remarkable opportunity to learn from experts about a place barely touched by time. Located just past mile marker 24 on the left of Highway 270.
Or set off on an unforgettable ride through the fabled “VALLEY OF THE KINGS” with RIDETHERIM TOURS. Knowledgeable local guides lead HALF-DAY TOURS that travel along the rim of WAIPI‘O VALLEY, through scented eucalyptus and ginger forests and over mountainous terrain that once was among the most sacred royal lands in ancient Hawai‘i.
A highlight of the journey is a stop at a lava tube grotto situated under the famed HI‘ILAWE FALLS, where scenic vistas of WAIPI‘O BEACH—the longest black-sand beach in the state—and the HISTORIC VALLEY FLOOR are visible.
Suitable for riders of all ages and abilities, tours for this authentic and original experience depart twice daily from WAIPI‘O VALLEY ARTWORKS, located at 48-5416 Kukuihaele Road in Honoka‘a.
