This Oahu mountain bike tour begins at your hotel when you meet your professional guide, who will drive you out towards the famous Kaaawa Valley. Sometimes referred to as Kualoa Valley, this lush section of Oahu’s shoreline is backed by the Koolau Mountains, and has been used to film movies and television shows from 50 First Dates to Lost.
Kaaawa Valley has both single-track and double-track that are used in off-road triathlons, including the Hawaii Mountain Tour Pro/Am and other professional races. That said, you don't have to be a pro to hit these trails. Rides can be catered to ability levels from beginners to experienced bikers.
In addition to the off-road and downhill areas, you’ll ride through rolling countryside that’s tucked between the mountains, passing everything from ancient village sites to bunkers from World War II. In winter, it’s even possible to spot whales spouting in the turquoise waters offshore—perhaps while enjoying your deli lunch that’s served in the middle of the trip.
When the Oahu mountain biking tour has finished, transportation is provided back to your Waikiki hotel, where you can reflect on the scenes from the past couple of hours before rinsing off all the dirt.
