Kohala’s rugged backcountry and rich heritage are yours to explore with Kohala UTV Adventure!
The Rugged Backcountry of North Kohala, with its impenetrable forests and precipitous valleys, has served as a refuge and battleground for centuries. Powerful chiefs battling to control the island would time and again find themselves stymied by the treacherous terrain as they sought to defeat rebels who had escaped to the deep canyons. Before achieving what no other had achieved before him – conquering and uniting all the islands – even Kamehameha The Great sought protection here. To this day, these forests provide, for a select few, escape from the daily “battles” of life. A chance to regroup, recuperate, and reemerge…ready to battle anew.
Kohala UTV Adventure offers you a rare glimpse at this pristine Hawaiian landscape and to learn the history and legends they have inspired. Join us on a guided tour along the rim of the northern-most of Kohala’s seven sacred valleys: the Valley of the Long Spear, Pololū. Safely seated in your nimble 5-seat off-road “utility task vehicle” (UTV), we will meander makai (towards the sea) through the lush pastures of a working cattle ranch before journeying mauka (towards the mountains) where cool mists, verdant forests, and rushing streams await.
Leisurely paced, educational, fascinating and fun it is the perfect Hawaiian eco-activity for families and groups.
