  Plan Your Adventure > Hiking

Hiking is a great way to explore the diverse Hawaii landscape (Big Island, Kauai, Maui or Oahu). Hawaii hikes range from easy to strenuous. Hawaii hikes include short trips to scenic overlooks while others are backpacking trips to more remote areas. Many of the overnight hikes in Hawaii require that you obtain a camping permit, in advance. (Permits can be obtained up to a year in advance.)

Hawaii Hiking

Alternatively, there are guided hawaii hiking tours available. An advantage to taking a guided tour is that they can be educational... and you can support the local economy at the same time.
