For those hoping to be swept away by Kauai's stunning scenery, this picture-worthy adventure is for you. The guided excursion ventures to some of the island's most spectacular destinations, including Waimea Canyon and the Spouting Horn, and ends with a cruise down Wailua River, while you enjoy songs and stories of ancient Hawaii.

The day begins with a drive past the uncanny likeness of Britain's Queen Victoria etched on the Haupu Mountain range, then continues through a remarkable tunnel of 500 eucalyptus trees towering more than 100 feet. After a drive through Koloa Town, you will head to the Spouting Horn—one of the island's most photographed spots and where ocean water erupts through underground lava tubes. Then it's time to see the 3,000-foot-deep Waimea Canyon, often described as the Grand Canyon on the Pacific. With its vibrant red soil and amazing greenery, it definitely is one of the most spectacular sights on the island.

Other stops include the Opaekaa Falls Lookout and Fern Grotto, a gorgeous tropical rain forest once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. The tour ends on the Wailua River, where you will take a relaxing cruise surrounded by lush jungle landscapes.
