Na Pali Rim Tour

Na Pali Rim Tour
Kauai Eco-Tours

This is a hard core trip! 10+ miles one-way, of rugged terrain down the Nualolo trail across the 2000 foot cliffs of the Na Pali coast, and back up Awa’awa Puhi trail. The change in elevation is around 2000 feet so expect to huff and puff your way through this tour. Be prepared to get muddy, and to have sore thighs the next day. The views of the Na Pali coast make this tour completely worth the effort, not to mention all of the endemic species of plant and birds that can not be seen on any other tour of the island. We will stop for lunch after our decent down the Nualolo trail. This is a tour that few will attempt because of its difficulty but you will be rewarded with scenery that few have ever seen outside of a helicopter. We have many more tour offerings. Please contact us for other suggestions if you do not see what you want here.

Peter took my fiance' Alex and I on a great trip out across the Na Pali coast on the Nualolo trail in May during our week in Kauai.
It was great to have Peter along to describe all of the plants, animals and terrain features that we came across. This trail covers many different areas of forest, dry scrub and misty highlands. The vistas out on the headlands were really beyond description. Hanging out over the nearly vertical 2000' cliffs that tumble down into the lush valleys of the West coast and all the way down to the glittering azure blue Pacific - it felt like we were flying!

As mentioned in the description, this trail is not one to undertake lightly as it is physically taxing as well as quite long if you aren't racing through it - which you should not!

Peter will take you on a tour of his island that you would not otherwise experience, so sign up and have a great time!

Comments from others tours


The guide was a lot of fun that provided a lot of great information about the local fauna. Good workout.


This was a very enjoyable experience. The tour guide was very informative and accomodating. The scenery and vegetation along the trail is amazing. I highly recommend this trail especially for those who may not be used to hiking in mountains.


Persoanl Eco tours by guides that know it all! We did a hike with Kauai Eco Tours while on a cruise to all the islands. It is the best activity we did on our whole vacation! THis tour is personalized to your needs! You will love your guide and fresh fruit from the local farmers market.
