Hot Spots: Backcountry Adventures in Kauai

Posted on:

So, you're heading to Hawaiian islands, Kauai to be exact, and you're looking for some adventurous things to do. The good news is that there is plenty of adventure waiting for you, so have no fear of island fever.

How about tubing down an old sugar plantantion irrigation system? Or, a 7-line zipline course through a bamboo grove? Kauai Backcountry Adventures is your friend when it comes to adventure. Their mountain tubing and ziplining tours will give you a look at over 17,000 scenic acres of former plantation lands.

While in Kauai recently, we opted for a relaxing afternoon with the mountain tubing. After a bumpy, but very scenic drive to a nearby hillside, we hopped in the water and began our float through the irrigation system, traversing through open canals and tunnels that were hand-dug in the late 1800s.

After finishing the tubing course, you'll have some time to relax at another location where the Backcountry Adventures team has drinks and snacks.

This is the perfect adventure activity for yourself and a few friends, or the entire family. Check out the video below to see the lush scenery for yourself.
