How an Eco Tour Can Put You in Touch With Nature


Eco-Friendly Attractions

Hawaii is all about nature: nature in its purest form, its most exquisite beauty. Especially on the island of Oahu, where eco-friendly attractions are at their best, it’s easier than ever to get back in touch with nature. There are many eco-adventure tours on Hawaii, but only Hoku Hawaii Tours puts you in touch with Mother Nature in such an honest yet forthcoming way.

One of the most popular tours in Hawaii, the Oahu Eco Adventure Tour gives you up close and personal access to Hawaii’s lush, tropical and inviting beauty. You even get lunch at the Proud Peacock overlooking Waimea Valley, enjoying your meal surrounded by the sights and sounds of Oahu. Visiting La’ie Point and the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout gives you unique insight into the natural landscape, all provided by expert navigators who live and breathe this area. They know every square inch of the forests, trails, gardens, parks and lookouts and treat you to little-known facts about Hawaii history. If you’re tired of annoying tour guides who stop at all the tourist traps, and instead you want a truly unique, honest portrayal of Mother Nature in Oahu, take an eco adventure tour.

Here, you can swim beneath a waterfall carved out of a majestic hillside, breathe in the rich aroma of a local coffee farm, experience the spray of salt water while on the North Shore of Oahu, and take in all the colors and smells of the Hawaiian Botanical Gardens. There are no stuffy museums on this tour, no tourist traps that force you to see everything you’ve already experienced. Instead, you are given an opportunity to experience the following in unbridled splendor:
• Waimea Valley
• Waterfall Swim
• North Shore Oahu Surf Beaches
• Hawaiian Botanical Garden
• La’ie Point & Pali Lookout
• Byodo-In Temple
• South Shore Oahu
• Halona Blowhole Lookout
• Hanauma Bay Lookout

On your journey you’ll become witness to Hawaii’s history and culture, especially when it comes to Waimea Valley, spanning 1875 total acres representing sacred grounds for the past 700 years. The name literally means “The Valley of the Priests” and is a cooperative conservation land that features hundreds of species of plant and wild life, not to mention it’s home to Waimea Falls.

Witness Mother Nature in her wild fury at the Halona Blowhole, which is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions that occurred many thousands of years ago. When the surf hits just right, the lava tubes extending into the ocean have holes where water sprays through up to 30 feet in the air.

These are just a few of the things you’ll see on an eco-adventure tour of Oahu. Call Hoku Hawaii Tours to get you started. This is one of our more popular tours, so don’t hesitate to book early.
