Hear stories from Kauai’s modern history as you drive through Hanapepe and Waimea towns, pass the early 19th-century Russian Fort Elizabeth, and stop at Captain Cook’s original landing site. Wind up a mountain to a lookout point over the striking red ravines of Waimea Canyon, and stop for photos in front of Waipo’o Falls. Get panoramic views over the Kalalau Valley and drive along the island’s longest beach before stopping for a typical Hawaiian barbecue lunch (own expense).

After this break, watch ocean spray shoot up through a lava tube at the Spouting Horn blowhole and look for sea turtles near the beaches of Poipu. Get a glimpse of Mt. Waialeale, the wettest place on Earth, on the way to the grand finale of Wailua Falls. Admire the remarkable 80-foot (24-meter) double cascade before ending the full-day tour back in Lihue.
