DescriptionGo on a private hike that combines a workout with rare, picturesque views of Kauaʻi. Explore Nounou Mountain, aka “Sleeping Giant,” which is located on the East Side of Kaua’i, looming above the winding blue and green waters of the Wailua River. Join this 2-3 hour hike for sunrise or sunset, and learn the legends surrounding this landmark mountain ridge that resembles a man sleeping on his back. Stories go far back to Ancient Hawaiian knowledge and even have royal roots. Follow the trails up and pass by lush vegetation before finally arriving on the Giant’s chin, nose, and forehead, a climb of nearly 1,000 feet. Enjoy sweeping views of the cloud covered Mount Wai’ale’ale, the locals' Wailua Homesteads, and the entire eastern coastline. Choose the Waterfall Option if you would like to reward yourself with a refreshing dip in a cascading waterfall. This option will add approximately 4 hours to the activity, so the tour will stop at one of several local restaurants to buy food before continuing on to this final phase of your adventure.
