Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

Waimea Valley
Considered one of the best hikes in Oahu, surrounded by lush botanical gardens and over 5,000 tropical plants, the one-mile flat nature trail cuts through oversized trees and leaves. Along the way, posted displays describe the history, ground and plant life found within this sacred spot. The big reveal at the end of the trail is a grand cascade, a plunging 45-foot high waterfall surrounded by dense tropical scenery. You may take a swim right under the waterfall for a thrilling experience.

Tsue's Farm
Tsue's Farm (also known as Turtle Town) is situated on the backside of Haleiwa and is tucked alongside the tranquil Anahulu River. This outdoor playground features activities for the whole family - from kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding to Hawaiian games, friendly farm animals and, of course, Hawaiian green sea turtles! Choose your activity, then enjoy a sumptuous lunch and a fruity shave ice treat.

Green World Coffee Farm
Nestled on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, this small, seven-acre farm is studded with over 3,000 arabica coffee trees. Established in 2013 by owner Howard Green, it invites guests to sample freshly roasted coffee, enjoy a self-guided tour through a coffee garden to learn how the mighty bean goes from tree to cup, and purchase coffee bags and other signature merchandise to enjoy at home.

Dole Plantation
Marvel at the vast lushness of the Dole pineapple plantation, the epicenter of the island's pineapple empire started in 1899 by a 22-year-old from Massachusetts named James Dole. The plantation's humble beginnings were as a fruit stand in the 1950s, but it was expanded to a premier attraction, Hawaii's "Pineapple Experience," in 1989.

What you will see along the way:
Round out the day with a relaxed coastline drive to take in the surfing beaches of the North Shore and enjoy a picturesque journey to the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout, which travels up the Pali Highway through dense forests and towering trees to reveal the serene beauty of Hawaii's natural landscapes.

Photo Opportunities:
Byodo-In Temple
Erected in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii, the Byodo-In Temple is a replica of the 900-year-old Temple of Equality in Japan.

Nu'uanu Pali Lookout
Oahu's most scenic spots lie before you, so focus your lens on the magnificent vistas overlooking the Koolau cliffs and windward coast.

Snack/Lunch:
Begin the day with bottled water and a fresh breakfast pastry. Then, refresh with lunch served at Tsue's Farm. Sample menu includes: one's choice of garlic shrimp, spicy shrimp, coconut shrimp, teriyaki chicken, kalua pork with cabbage, stir fry noodles with vegetables, garden salad, or tuna salad served with rice, salad and pineapple slice. Finish with a shave ice dessert.

Special Notes:

Not appropriate for guests with heart conditions or back problems. Nature walk in Waimea Valley covers one mile of flat trail. A towel, appropriate swimwear, rash guard or reef-safe sunscreen (must contain zinc oxide) are recommended for those wishing to swim at the waterfall.
