Kauai Bike Ride

The Waimea Canyon is one of the wonders of Kauai and one of the very best ways to experience it is on a Kauai Bike Ride. The Waimea Canyon Bike Tour gives you a similar perspective to a hike as you are outside in the fresh morning air, invigorated by its pureness and at the same time traveling a span of 12 miles. To top it off, you have the excitement of cruising the entire tour going downhill with no additional effort as gravity is your motor.

The Waimea Canyon Bike Tour is a wonderful way to enjoy a Kauai Bike Ride.

Kauai bike tours, like on other islands in the state, provide a great outdoor coasting descent from Kauai's mountains and ridges to the ocean.

  • For years Haleakala on Maui has been known as the "Mecca" for bicycle tours in Hawaii with it gravity driven coast from the mountain to the sea. In recent years, Kauai has chimed in with its own version of a downhill adventure, the 'Waimea Canyon Bike Tour', this time coasting down through the beautiful Waimea Valley to the ocean below. This bike tour is a shorter trip, and less expensive, but none the less gives you some of the same thrills and excitement of its Maui counterpart.
  • This fun and exciting Kauai bike ride travels from the rim of the famed Waimea Canyon (often referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific) and descends from the 3500' elevation, down 12 miles of smooth winding blacktop all the way to the shores of the blue Pacific.
  • You'll stop along the way to take pictures and learn about the history, culture and legends of this beautiful area on Kauai. This is a short tour of only about 4 hours or so and has departure times in both the morning and the afternoon.

Pride of America Cruise Ship:

Bike Tours on Kauai do not pick up clients at the cruise ship.

These tours can be arranged for Thursday or Friday of your cruise ship schedule. Please book well in advance to assure availability.

    Ok. So you've probably already noticed, there is only one bike ride on Kauai. Does that in any way diminish the excitement, quality or sheer fun involved with this activity? Absolutely not. If anything it just makes the choice to take this one a bit easier. You are not going to want to miss the Waimea Canyon in your explorations of Kauai. The Grand Canyon of the Pacific is awesome to see and it makes it just that much more fun to visit on a bike. What makes it even more fun is that you are driven up to the top to see the beautiful sights of the canyon from above but then you are treated to a 12 mile no-peddling downhill extravaganza of a ride to the ocean. Nothing brings out the 'kid' in you more than a bike ride downhill when you don't have to peddle back up again. And, you actually can get going pretty swiftly. A bit of adrenaline and some crisp mountain air on a delightful Kauai morning is even more invigorating than a fresh Kona coffee latte. You will also get some great views of Niihau from elevation. It is much more impressive to view it from a distance above sea level than from the shoreline. This is a fun trip.

Video Transcript

This video segment is about bike tours on the island of Kauai.

Yeah, we have lots of places you can ride a bike, and we do have rental bikes that can be ranged and some motorized bikes as well that you can get around the island. But the real major situation that we have regarding bike tours on the island has to do with the downhill that we have in Kauai. This is not quite like the downhill that you maybe familiar with on Maui, the Haleakala downhill, which has been in operation for almost three decades, and goes from great heights way up the mountain all the way down to the sea coast. But, this is a very similar downhill, but it goes from the 3,500 foot level or so, in Waimea Canyon, down to the sea. It's a much shorter trip, we're talking about a half day, four hours, something like that.

Waimea Canyon, if you're not familiar with it, is up in this area. Oftentimes, Waimea Canyon is referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. It looks just like the Grand Canyon in many ways. A huge canyon, all the gradations of color and the stratifications that you'll see in on the canyon walls, going down to the bottom. It's very, very, very beautiful. It's a place that has been ... a location that all the tour companies have taken people for years, and people drive up to the canyon and see it. It is very, very beautiful. A major part of the sightseeing things you're going to want to do on Kauai. This is a tour that involves taking you to the Waimea Canyon to see it, but then also doing a bike tour down. They do a morning trip, and they do an afternoon trip. You pick which one you want. They usually start in Poipu, you'll meet there at the shop, then they'll gather you together, they'll take you with them, and wind your way up to Waimea Canyon, giving you a little bit of a tour on the way up.

Once you get there, you're going to be doing a ... everybody's going to be assigned a bike, and there'll be a little briefing, makes sure everybody knows what to do and how to do it, to be safe and so on. Then you're going to cruise down. A nice little journey down to the sea, with beautiful views all the way along of the canyon, and then looking out to sea and being able to see Niihau in the distance, and it's just a nice little adventure, get you going with a little bit of speed on a bicycle, and kind of combine some biking fun with some touring all at the same time. So if you have any questions about Tours or Activities in Hawaii, just give us a call or call out tombarefoot.com. We're here to help.

For years Hawaii bike tours have been a main-stay of the activities available for the visitors coming to the islands. Perhaps no island provides more bike tours to visitors than the island of Maui and this is all due to the phenomenon that occurred in the early eighties with the advent of the Haleakala downhill bicycle adventures.
