One of the few ways to really see the untouched beauty of the Big Island is to fly over its lush forests, dense tree canopies, and glorious rushing waterfalls on a zipline. An exhilarating adventure for all ages
The Kohala Zipline Canopy Tour traverses a forested, stream-rich land on the slopes of the extinct volcano, Kohala. With soaring platforms built into majestic trees, arching suspension bridges, and progressively longer ziplines, this aerial trekking course is both serene and thrilling at once. During this unique adventure, you will be securely clipped into a safety harness and equipped with your own braking system, and you will fly via a pulley system through the forest across 9 ziplines, climaxing with a 1,150-foot long zip 120 feet off the ground with speeds up to 45 mph and an exciting rappel from the final tree. Also enjoy a fun off-road drive on a 6-wheel Pinzgauer, as well as complimentary treats of local macadamia nuts, trail bars, and other snacks.
For those who want to more fully experience North Kohala and enjoy pick-up/drop-off service (optional) from Kona or Waikoloa, the Zip & Dip tour is for you! Combine ziplining in the morning with an afternoon hike nearby to private waterfalls (with option to swim) and a lunch overlooking stunning Pololu Valley from a private spot.
