What You Can Expect

Oahu Volcanic 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.

Terry our guide/driver was so knowledgable and made this adventure memorable. Would recommend if you are not an avid hiker Terry will take good care of you on this hike. Would recommend this trip and the whole process was very enjoyable from start to finish.

Absolutely fantastic excursion and one I'm going to repeat in August when wee are back. Elika was by far, the coolest guide I've ever been on a hike with. Very personal experience. Wee got an education on e fitting from local eateries on our way to the trailhead, to almost every plant.

I never knew that there where different ginger plants and they had flowers so pretty. Very informative tour and got to see waterfall. Make sure to spray loads of bug spray before heading up as I sprayed only a little and am now covered in bites but so worth it.

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!

I am very out of shape so this hike kicked my butt! Great hike but expect to be tired.

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!
