Eco tours are more than just sitting in a tour van and looking out the window. Get physical and feel nature. One of the things Hawaii is most valued for, among locals and tourists alike, is its beauty and vast diversity of nature. Plant life, marine and wild life, volcanoes and natural formations, Hawaii seems to have it all. One of the main reasons people come to Hawaii in the first place, there are many ways you can see all of the beauty that Hawaii has to offer, including Eco Tours, which were specifically created to take you around the islands to explore the beaches, waterfalls, rainforests, and almost everything that has to do with nature. There are many eco tours one can choose, no matter which island you’re on, so there are quite a few options.
Probably the most visited Island of Hawaii, Oahu has the most options. You can choose to explore Oahu itself, or take a trip to the Big Island or Maui. If you prefer to stay on Oahu, you can choose to take one of the Circle Island tours, which, as the name suggests, takes you around the whole island. Many of the Circle Island tours will allow you to see a hidden Oahu like most haven’t seen before. You can see some of Oahu’s most famous beaches, such as Sunset Beach, take a hike through Waimea Falls, and more. Another option includes a hike up Koko Head Crater, which provides one of the best views on the island. The image below is Koko Head Crater.
The Big Island is yet another island that showcases beauty of Hawaii. Home to Mt. Kilauea, one of Hawaii’s last active volcanoes, going an volcano eco tour will give you the opportunity to see volcanoes and other sights. Definitely a tour that should be recommended to anyone, you will get to see a black sand beach, the Rainbow Falls, Liliuokalani Gardens, and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you can walk through a lava tube, see the steam vents of Kilauea, and learn all about volcanoes at the National Park.
An Eco Tour in Maui will take you on a drive along one of the world’s most scenic highways, Hana Highway. Also known as the Road to Hana, many stops are made on the trip, including to Wai’anapanapa National Park, black sand beaches, Wailua Falls, the only Winery on Maui, and many more gorgeous sights to see.
Kauai also has many things to see. With just as many beautiful locations, you can go hiking, visit the beaches and botanical gardens, and see many natural landmarks on the island. If you are feeling somewhat adventurous, you can view the scenery in a new way by going on a zipline or tubing tour.
There are also a few unique options in Molokai as well. There is the usual hiking, sightseeing, and many landmarks, but unique to Molokai is the Kamakou Preserve, where you can take a hike that will take you through the rainforest and see over 250 Hawaiian plants, 219 of which can be found nowhere else in the world.
Hawaii has so much natural beauty, and getting the chance to see it becomes an experience that will never be forgotten.
