BIKE AND HIKE O'AHU
$90 Per Person

First on the list is to get outside the bustle of the city and take the provided shuttle to a tropical rainforest past the famous Punchbowl Crater. Once at the top of Pu'u 'Ohia, you will gather strength and meet your veteran bike and nature guides while enjoying a delicious Continental-style breakfast of Hawaiian coffee, fruit, juice and muffins.

Next on the list is to be outfitted with a Trek mountain bike and Bell helmet. You will receive the safety instructions and get a feel for your equipment before descending the 5-mile paved jungle road. This is a slow descent on this private land and you will be directed to stop along the way at the Manoa Overlook to take in the setting. Time for photos and a little narrative by your guide before you head back on the road, one that has very little traffic to disturb you.

Once you reach the bottom, bikes are loaded onto the van and you will take a ride to a private 75-acre property in the Manoa Valley. Reinforcements of trail snacks and a waterbottle will be passed out. Knee-high rubber boots, guava walking sticks and rain jackets are available if the weather commands their use.

The hike then begins, a lovely 2-mile route along a jungle stream with mountain pools along side as you hike to a 200-foot waterfall. You will hike back over a scenic ridge where you can view the lush tropical flowers and trees that often go unseen. A shuttle ride back to Waikiki ends your tour
