ATV Kauai and Off-Road Tours

Kauai ATV Tours are a favorite on the island. The ATV Kauai experience is a mix of sightseeing, adventure and thrill seeking rolled all in one. Learn where you can go on a Kauai ATV Tour, the types of vehicles used and why mud is likely to be in your future. We offer many Kauai ATV Tours at discount pricing.

Where can you go on the Kauai ATV Tours?

  • Kipu Valley

    One of the most magical locations in all of Kauai is the Kipu Valley and this is the home to some of our great ATV rides. This is a location that is a popular spot for Hollywood movie producers who have made their 'block-buster' movies such as Jurassic Park, King Kong and Raiders of the Lost Arc. The valley with stream running through it and winding dirt trails taking you high above to scenic viewpoints has made this a fantastic location to enjoy an ATV ride.
  • Poipu

    Follow the Poipu coastline south on your ATV through remote areas with scenic ocean views and then literally drive through a mountain in a tunnel created years ago for the sugar cane industry. When you pop out on the other side you will have 'turned the corner' of the island and ended up on a private 22,000 acre parcel of land known for its extensive beauty and its remoteness. Oftentimes you will be allowed to 'open up' your throttle to maximum speed on these straight-away's that will ultimately lead you to a divine waterfall where you are invited to take a refreshing dip.
  • Princeville

    In the far northern stretches of the island in the mountains above the scenic land of Hanalei is yet another option for you to enjoy an ATV tour. This is the land of rainbows, forests and likely also unicorns. Riding your ATV on these Kauai ranch lands is exciting all on its own but will also combine with zip lines, hiking, swimming and a lunch as well.

Types of vehicles available on an ATV Kauai experience:

  • Polaris ATV's which are among the most most maneuverable of all ATV choices.
  • UTV vehicles that are capable of taking passenger of two to as many as four at a time.
  • Standard ATV's

A word to the wise. These ATV rides on Kauai are either dusty or muddy depending upon the day you take one and this simply adds to the fun.

    Try to think of three more beautiful places in Hawaii than Princville, Kipu Valley or Poipu on Kauai.  After you've realized that's an impossible task you will be delighted to know that these are the three areas of Kauai that offer fantastic ATV Tours.  The Big Island may have been the home of the original ATV rides in Hawaii but it was on Kauai that they really took hold and made the industry 'pop'.  Whether you are climbing a rugged cliff-side trail up to an amazing precipice view in Kipu, 'wailing' full out on the straight away's before you get to the famous tunnel separating Poipu from the Lihue side of the island or are driving to a remote swimming hole in the mythical land of Oz known as Hanalei, you will be so happy you have chosen an ATV ride on Kauai.

So here's the deal with ATV tours on Kauai. First of all, these are all terrain vehicles, right? These are designed to go off-roading onto really difficult surfaces and that sort of thing.

These actually, the ATV tours that we have are really, they became popular within the last 20 years. And the vehicles themselves, they're used by all sorts of different industries, for difficult jobs getting out and around in back country, doing things, even things like replacing horses to some degree. Cowboys now ride on ATVs to get through difficult areas in ranch land and all that sort of thing.

So that's one of the great capabilities an ATV has, and that's one of the advantages that you've got in taking one of these tours. I mean, they're fun to begin with just to drive. They're just a total kick in the butt and some of these tours that I've been on on Kauai, I ended up going really a lot faster than I ever thought I would be going, but traveling through terrain that was really in some places difficult and some places that's just wide open, going through huge tunnels and everything else, up escarpments and up to the top of ridges where you have incredible, beautiful views, and such.

But, you have the one aspect of they're fun to ride. That's the one thing. Secondarily, though, where you're going. These are places you couldn't go if you didn't sign up or arrange to go on a tour like this. One area we've got over 10,000 acres of land that is private land, inaccessible to the general public, you're not going to be able to get there. On these ATV tours, you're right in the middle of it. You're cruising through and going to all sorts of unusual places and ending up at waterfalls and streams and jumping in the water if you want. They're really just amazing little tours that you can take that go all throughout the island.

The other thing you need to know about them though, is that I guess they're not for everyone, for a couple of reasons, but primarily I would say because you really need to appreciate getting filthy. Because that's gonna happen. I mean you are really going to get dirty. Did I say you're going to get dirty? You're really going to get dirty on these. And that's half the fun really. There's so much dirt if it's dry. If it's been raining, it's mud. So you have to have that kind of a attitude that you're going to be able to deal with that already before you go, because that's going to be a part of your trip. You certainly don't want to wear anything, any of your best clothes on this, we've got the red dirt on Kauai that'll really stain and make a mess. But most of the places that we have are going to give you some pullovers and that sort of thing that you can wear that can get dirty and you'll be grateful for that. There's also changing rooms as a rule and places you can wash up and get clean before you leave.

But in any event, the ATV tours are really a trip, really a lot of fun for the people who are looking for a little bit of adventure and have a need for a little speed, and Kauai is one of the best places that we have in all of Hawaii to do the ATV tours.
