Kauai Backcountry Adventures

Located on a 17,000 acre tract of land at the base of Mount Wai'ale'ale which is known for being the "wettest spot on Earth" the zip-line course called "Kauai Backcountry Zip-line Adventures" is one of the longest and most dynamic zip-line courses on the island. The course dramatically zigzags its way across a series of valley of varying depths and provides you with zip-line runs that are mostly on the "further side of long". This massive course provides fun for all comers as can be evidenced by the shrieks, hoots and "Tarzan yells" that can be heard throughout the valley corridors. Your tour will begin on a four-wheel drive vehicle at the base yard miles from the actual beginning of the course. Once at the course beginning you will be instructed about proper zip-lining technique and safety procedures and your first run will be on your "bunny slope" zip-line. You will quickly get the hang of it and will be zipping like a pro by the time you reach the end where you will be treated to the opportunity to enjoy a cool swim in a mountain pool with waterfall before you return to the base yard.
