The Big Island ATV adventure begins at Waipiʻo Valley Artworks, which is approximately a 100 minute drive from Kona and a 75 minute drive from Hilo.
The tour begins with a safety orientation, learning how to operate the ATV, SideBySide, or Buggy you will be driving. Once youʻre ﬁtted with safety equipment, drivers will do a pass or fail practice track. For those whoʻd prefer to simply ride along, thereʻs also the option of riding with a guide in a comfortable, open-air buggy-along with the rest of the ATV group, youʻll learn about what was once the political and economic epicenter of Ancient Hawaiʻi, how agriculture was an intricate part of a thriving society that allowed Hawaiian spirituality, virtues, and community to prosper. Ride the Royal lands above the Valley, which was frequented by Aliʻi (Hawaiian Royalty). Learn about aquatic species that are indigenous to this sacred area, native plants that were used for medicinal purposes and the hawaiian starch, kalo(taro) who’s lineage is as deep as humanity.
We have a 11-12 mile, 3 hr waterfall adventure through an aromatic eucalyptus forest, scented with ﬂowering gingers and seasonal fruit, on mountain terrain suitable for riders of all abilities. Beginning at 800 feet elevation we immediately climb to the top and back of the Valley at 2000 feet and swim in a waterfall that is the headwaters of the famed Hi’ilawe Falls- the longest single-drop fall in the state. There we enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages. We then begin the descent to lookouts over the Valley with vistas that include the longest black sand beach in the state, multiple taro patches under cultivation, wild horses and remnants of ancient ﬁsh ponds built by the ﬁrst people to use aquaculture, the Ancient Hawaiians
