The Piglet Pua'a Maiki- North Shore Eco Tours
Hold on to your seats and get ready to hoot and holler as you take on the Pua'a Maiki. Board the renowned Swiss military Pinzgauer all-terrain vehicle and ready yourself for a cultural adventure. This 12 mile off-road expedition begins at sea level and treks through one of Hawaii's most sacred and fabled places, Waimea Valley, to uncover an exhilarating past of ancient Hawaiian history. Travel back in time as we visit two of the island's last heiau (temple) while your expert Hawaiian guide relates a spellbinding oral tradition of folklore and mythology. Guests will venture deep into the back valleys of Oahu's North Shore while enjoying an array of rugged terrain and wild natural landscapes. Tackle lush jungle trails and climb open windswept ridge-lines all from the comfort of your high-stanced, open-aired Pinzgauer. Revel in aina (nature) as you witness rare native plants and take in stunning panoramic views of mountain and coastline from a private mountain overlook! And if that's not enough, your off-road adventure also includes admission to Waimea Valley park, giving you access to the valley's world-class botanical garden and historic sites. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even end the day with a swim in the famous Waimea Falls (Waihi)!
