What You Can Expect

Oahu Rainforest Hiking Adventure

Manoa Valley Waterfall, Oahu, Hawaii

The island of Oahu is a hiker’s paradise — even with all the development — as the lush valleys of the Ko’olau Mountains are riddled with backcountry trails. The temperature here, even in winter, is right around 80°F (26°C), though the gentle trade winds help cool you off as you work up a sweat on the trail.

Given the perfect hiking conditions, many of Oahu’s public trails can be packed with groups of hikers. On this Oahu hiking tour, however, you’ll experience a part of Manoa Valley that’s only used by this tour, and trek across 75 acres (30 hectares) of rainforest full of waterfalls, streams, and pools. Hear forest birds chirping in the waving green treetops as you walk past ancient rock walls, and listen as your guide explains this valley’s cultural, and sacred past.

Expect to hike on a dirt trail for a total of 1.5 hours, and be sure to have your camera ready when you emerge at the thundering falls.

A small goup tour with an outstending guide with a lot of knowlegde of Hawaii and its nature. He took a lot of stops on the way up to the waterfall to show us and learn us about the nature and that made the climb up easy for everybody. There was no water in the waterfall but we cant blame the tour for that. Rekommend this tour to everyone that wants to see some more and learn of the Hawaii nature

Such a great tour! Our guide, I forgot his name but he had short blonde hair and i think was born in Sweden, was fantastic and kept me motivated during the rains, humidity, mosquitoes, mud sliding and water crossings! Very knowledgable and kudos for all the trail work they do. Best tour I went on!

Well hosted with a very knowledgeable guide. Great way to get in to the heart of nature on the island. Slow paced with plenty of water stops so that even the slower among the group were able to easily keep up. Good fun!

If you're looking for something to do other than lay on the beaches of Hawaii, this is it! Mattias was a fabulous guide and taught us so much about the rainforest! You will most likely be pretty wet when you're all done, but it is so worth it to get to the waterfall at the end! Beautiful place!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

Excellent tour! I would recommend it! The Tour guide was informative and he had everyone walking at a reasonable pace. The scenary is spectacular!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

This was a hike on a trail, but not a big one. It is not an easy walk with lots of rocks and jumps and dodging of tree branches. We hiked into a nice waterfall and then back through a bamboo forest. The guide (Cory) was great! He was extremely knowledgeable about the trail, the plants and the environment. We (my wife and I) had the fortune of having a solo tour with Cory and it was great. Bring hiking boots or something other than sandals or use their conveniently supplied rain boots cause you are going to get a little muddy.

Mattao was awesome and really knew what he was talking about. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the fresh trails that covered muddy and rocky terrain. It was refreshing and informative. Loved it. Would definitely recommend it to others.
