Ride an ATV from Moun­tain to Sea

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - IT’S A BIG, BIG ISLAND -

North Ko­hala is a sparsely pop­u­lated, wildly beau­ti­ful re­gion, mak­ing it an ideal place for off-road ex­plo­ration. Be­hind the wheel of an All-Ter­rain Ve­hi­cle and with a guide who knows the area’s ter­rain, his­tory and cul­ture, be pre­pared for a ride into parts un­known.

ATV Out­fit­ters Hawaii is owned by long-time North Ko­hala res­i­dents who’ll ride with you on ATVs specif­i­cally de­signed for rugged off-road travel. Ex­pe­ri­ence the real Hawai‘i on an un­for­get­table ride over pri­vate ranch­lands, past spec­tac­u­lar 200-foot sea cliffs and through lush, trop­i­cal rain forests. Knowl­edge­able, fifth-gen­er­a­tion na­tive Hawai­ian guides lead you to a hid­den wa­ter­fall and se­cluded beach that King Kame­hameha once fa­vored. The only com­pany to of­fer dou­ble-seat and sideby-side ATVs, it’s an ad­ven­ture for the en­tire fam­ily.

This is more than just a rough-and-tum­ble ride through gor­geous ter­rain; it’s a re­mark­able op­por­tu­nity to learn from ex­perts about a place barely touched by time. Lo­cated just past mile marker 24, on the left of High­way 270.
