Without a doubt the most comprehensive hiking tour company on the island of Oahu is Oahu Nature Tours. Their list of hikes and hike combinations is by far and away longer than anyone else's. Started in 1995 by a naturalist with an anthropology background, Michael Walther proceeded to create a company that had as his singular objective a company that could gain recognition for endangered species and other environmental projects. He now offers many short but worthwhile tours, most of which could be done in a single morning. In fact people often enjoy them so much that they participate in different tours on different days and Oahu Nature Tours will provide a better price if you decide to take multiple tours. There are so many different areas to visit and enjoy on Oahu in so many different and distinct eco-systems that participating in these hikes could prove to be the highlight of your visit to Oahu.
This exciting tour of the world famous Diamond Head Crater begins with a short introductory talk by a trained nature guide. You will learn about the fascinating volcanic creation, Hawaiian history, European discovery, early cattle ranching, and modern day military use of the "Gibraltar of the Pacific" while being escorted on a 45 minute walk that ascends to the 763' summit.
See lush rain forests, giant ferns, cascading tropical waterfalls, picturesque streams and unique species. This trail, a hidden treasure that was used by Steven Spielberg while filming Lost World, leads to the tallest accessible waterfall on Oahu, deep within a prehistoric landscape.
