What You Can Expect

Big Island ATV Tour Through Waipio Valley

Hiilawe Falls in Waipi'o Valley

This Big Island ATV adventure begins at Waipio Valley Artworks, which is approximately a 90-minute drive from Kona and a 75-minute drive from Hilo. 

The tour begins with some safety tips and an intro to your ATV, and your guide will help you get loaded with gear for driving your own ATV. For those who’d prefer to simply ride along, there’s also the option of riding with a guide in a comfortable, open-air buggy, where along with the rest of the ATV group, you’ll experience the sweeping, panoramic vistas looking down into Waipio Valley. 

While riding your Big Island ATV on this Waipio Valley tour, you’ll pass by gorgeous black-sand beaches and hear the crashing of waves, all while staring at towering cliffs that rise 2,000 feet (610 meters) from the valley. As your guide will inform you, this valley is sacred to native Hawaiians and has housed generations of kings, including the powerful King Kamehameha who was raised right here in the valley. 

Having worked up a sweat as you motor through the valley, stop for a cool, refreshing dip in a pool at the base of waterfall, which is fed by Hi’ilawe Falls: one of the tallest waterfalls in Hawaii. You’ll motor along the backside of Parker Ranch, one of the largest privately owned ranches in America, and ride around its ridge for an unforgettable view down into the valley.

Throughout this ATV tour on the Big Island, you’ll enjoy refreshments, stories and snacks as your guide ensures your safety, and you’ll finish back at the starting point at the end of the epic adventure.

Great staff, our guide Pat was a lot of fun. Very informative and taught the new drivers well as I'd never driven any type of ATV. I ended up driving a side by side vehicle with my nephew since he's too small to drive and received one on one instructions. Plenty of time on the trail, beautiful views, loads of fun. All the guides were happy to take photos as well and knew all the best scenic spots. Great tour!

This is a very fun and informative tour especially if it is your first time on the Island. I was a little anxious about driving the ATV at first, but turned out I was very good at it. My husband and I had a blast. I highly recommend that you Ride the Rim!!!!!!!

We had the best time. I never rode an ATV before and was nervous, but they let me do a few practice runs and I was comfortable before the real ride. The track was amazing. It was fun dirt roads with dips and rocks and hills that allowed for a rough and fun terrain ride. It was raining, they provided ponchos, but this just added to the adventure. They allow more time than other ATV tours and this was so worth it! Would do it again!
