73. ZIP KAUA‘I
With its uneven terrain and tangled jungle canopy, Kaua‘i’s backcountry is a natural setting for ZIPLINING.
A thrill ride above the treetops, ziplining is a wild, let-yourself-go experience that calls for shrieking from beginning to end. Simply put, a zipline is a cable stretched between poles. Harnessed to the cable, zipliners sail through the treetops, dip into valleys, drop into water holes and generally do their best imitation of a James Bond escape. Anyone looking for a rush that’s safe and only mildly addictive won’t be disappointed with a ride on a zipline.
OUTFITTERS KAUAI brought ziplines to the island several years ago. Now, many companies on Kaua‘i (see below for tour providers) run zipline courses combined with other high-energy adventures, including the island’s newest zipline operation, SKYLINE ECO-ADVENTURES. PRINCEVILLE RANCH ADVENTURES brings an extra special ZIPLINING/ BIKING offering to Hawai‘i. Its most popular tour, Zip N’ Dip, is a thriller combination of nine picturesque zip lines and an hour stop at a natural hidden swimming pool and waterfall where guests can jump in and splash around. Other great options include JUST LIVE! ZIPLINE TOURS, KOLOA ZIPLINE and KAUA‘I BACKCOUNTRY ADVENTURES. Age, weight and height restrictions apply for zipline runs.
