Description

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

The lush tropical beauty of Oahu is on full display when your four-hour adventure takes you deep within the rainforest to the stunning Valley of the Rainbows and the Lyon Arboretum, one of the world's premier botanic gardens. Please wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes for this eco-adventure that explores the 200-acre wonderland on a guided walk through 5,000 species of plants, including the largest collection of palm tree varieties on Earth and many rare and endangered native Hawaiian plants. A special area is devoted to botanicals used by the ancient Polynesians. Continue on with a picturesque drive to below the Pu'u Pia trail, where you'll stop to photograph historic Victorian mansions and the verdant hills and fertile grounds that have nurtured Hawaiian taro farms, coffee plantations and Japanese rice paddies. Keep your camera out for a concluding stop at Pu'u 'Ualaka'a, located 1,048 feet above the sparkling Pacific and affording a 180-degree panoramic view of Oahu's scenic southeastern coastline. Return to port with memories of this beautiful day.
