ATV Tours in Hawaii provide a Hawaiian adventure tour unlike any other. There are many options for ATV tours in Hawaii. View all your choices here!
Hawaii ATV tours are exciting and they are a popular choice among all the Hawaii adventure tours! ATV tours on Hawaii are not considered particularly new as a category of activity but they did come out of obscurity in one instant in the 1990's and then spread like wildfire to all the major islands of Hawaii. Like most technological advances over the course of the past fifty years the ATV followed a course of adaptation. ATV's were initially designed for specific farming and ranch type uses but turned out to be the perfect vehicle to be used to tour the wild out-back and rugged terrain often found in Hawaii. Once the very first vehicles were adapted to the use of a tour vehicle in the Hawi region on the Big Island of Hawaii they became an overnight success and that spurred the growth of the new tour industry in the islands; Hawaii ATV Tours.
Hawaii ATV Rides are Found on All the Major Hawaiian Islands
Today the Hawaii ATV industry has spread to all the major islands including its origin island of Hawaii plus Maui, Oahu and Kauai. For many Hawaii adventure tour enthusiasts ATV tours are considered somewhat of a thrill ride, but for most people these rides provide a first-time opportunity to ride on such a vehicle. Learning the skills necessary to ride competently on an ATV course usually only requires about fifteen minutes of training. Though people do consider these rides thrilling the reality is that the ATV tour operators are continuously monitoring the ATV riders to make sure all safety considerations are in play at all times. To some of the more daring and swashbuckling types who feel that they should be able to set the pace with a wide-open throttle this might seem a bit restrictive but the reality is that these ATV tours move along at a pace that is fast enough and adventurous enough for everyone other than a professional ATV race course driver.
Hawaii ATV Tours can be both Fun and Muddy!
One of the sensational aspects of these Hawaii ATV tours is that they allow visitors to get out into the wilder and more rugged areas of Hawaii they would not be able to visit in the normal course of their vacation. On the Big Island, ATV tours will take you into the depths of the Kohala Mountains on rides that can be as long as fifteen or even twenty miles or into the famous Waimea Valley which is one of the most beautiful areas in all of Hawaii. On Maui you can traverse the mountains above Lahaina and Kaanapali to heights that provide the most breathtaking views of the Lahaina Roadstead and then allow for a well deserved waterslide romp and dip in a refreshing mountain reservoir. The Oahu ATV experience takes you into one of the most photographed regions in Hawaii, Kualoa Ranch, which has been the scenic background for some of the most popular movies ever to hit the silver screen. Like Oahu, the ATV rides on Kauai will take you in the beautiful valleys used as a backdrop for blockbuster movies like Jurassic Park. The commonality of all of these tours is that they provide an experience that allows you to get out into the great outdoors of Hawaii, breathe the fresh air and enjoy an out-back environment that would be unavailable to you by most other forms of transportation. Most of these areas in fact are located on private property that does not provide access to the general public so you also have the advantage of being able to see views and enjoy scenery that even local people who have lived on the islands for their whole life would not be able to experience.
The one often referred to aspect of ATV tours that deserves an "honorable mention" is the fact that these rides often come, free of charge, with a considerable amount of dirt, dust and mud. The reality is that this overall messiness actually is a part of all the fun. It is a promise that you will come back from one of these rides dirty and on rainy days participantís eyes will resemble that of a raccoon when you get back to the starting point and take off your goggles. Many ATV companies will provide you with special clothing you can wear so not to soil the clothing you brought from the mainland but in any event simply be aware that there will be a considerable amount of dirt in your life when you participate in a Hawaii ATV tour.
The ATV tours on the Big Island are among the most adventurous of the outdoor tours and activities available in Hawaii. The Big Island of Hawaii is the original site of the very first four- wheel ATV tours in the state, and that's not by accident. The original company, ATV Outfitters, has an assortment of ATV four wheel options which include the jungle and mountains of the Kohala Mountains above the town of Hawi, incredible ocean cliffs, and spectacular waterfalls.
The island of Kauai provides a number of options for ATV rides which traverse some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere to be found. This Kauai activity is among the most popular and is a great way to see the backcountry.
In the past All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) were a popular way to get around on Maui, either on or off the road. These days the traffic laws do not permit ATV's to be ridden on the roads or highways and access to many private off road areas is limited. However, some of the larger ranches still permit ATV riding and offer ATV tours.
The island of Oahu is a natural for ATV riders. The rugged outdoor environment is ideal for these four-wheeled vehicles and ATV's provide a means to explore areas of the island that would be out of the question for the average visitor. Literally thousands of acres of private property are available to be driven upon varying in topography from cane fields to hills and streams with swimming stops at beautiful waterfalls.
