What You Can Expect

Waimea Canyon Bicycle Downhill

Bicycle Downhill Canyon to Coast

Rising an impressive 3,600 feet (1,100 meters) above sea level, Kauai’s Waimea Canyon is a natural geologic wonder formed by the passage of water through lava rock over thousands of years. Your half-day tour of this incredible landscape begins with your choice of early morning or afternoon departure. 

Meet your guide at Poipu Plaza, where you’ll be fitted for a mountain bike and helmet, then board a minivan for the ride up to the top of the canyon. Along the way, enjoy aromatic Hawaiian coffee and blueberry muffins (morning tour) or cold drinks and locally made cookies (afternoon tour).

At the lip of the canyon, take in majestic views of jagged red lava rock cutting through a blanket of greenery in the valley below. Then, it’s time to hop on your bike and begin the thrilling 12-mile (19-km) descent down smooth paved roads that wind through Waimea Canyon State Park. Stop at several points along the way to admire spectacular views and take photos while your guide shares information about the area’s geology, history and legends. 

Once you’ve made it down the mountain, cycle through the beautiful flatlands of Koke’e State Park and learn about the native island plant and wildlife species you see. Admire views of the expansive Pacific Ocean, then return to the original departure point at the end of your 4.5-hour tour.

Our family had a great time doing this. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable about the towns we passed on the way up, the flora and fauna, as well as the history of the area. The canyon is gorgeous. I would recommend this to anyone comfortable on a bike. It's all downhill. Practically no pedaling at all and the views are beautiful.

They took us to an outlook, and the view is breathtaking. Then we started biking. The guys were really friendly and showed us all the sights and told us about plants and Hawaiian legends. The ride down was fun and not difficult at all. I liked the bikes too. They were comfortable and appropriate for this ride.

This was an awesome tour! Really enjoyed this activity. Scenery is breathtaking and bikes very comfy. Aaron, our tour guide, was very informative and gave us so much history. Our driver and Aaron made sure we had a safe and fun ride. Morning coffee, muffins and cookies were scrumtious. We saw so many rainbows, including double rainbows. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Guides were fun and energetic. I appreciated the explanation of the demise of the sugar plantations and what has transpired since. Very knowledgeable of local fauna and flora, very safety conscious, and covered our backs (the van follows after the last rider and kept cars away). Nice views of the canyon - exhilarating ride! No pedaling! Excellent equipment.
