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.

This was a cool outing. The tour guides were great. The Waipio Valley is B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.! You can swim at the base of the waterfall, but you might want to bring water shoes and the base isn't too big.

The guides are all born and raised on the island so they have such an extreme knowledge of the history of the islands. It was just not just a quad tour, but also history and passion woven into the activity. They are extremely cautious of the abilities of the riders, that even a novice rider will have a fantastic and safe time. You will tour parts of the island that one would never be able to see or experience any other way.

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!
