Overnight stay at Hotel.
DAY 3 HONOLULU – KAUAI or MAUI (Optional)
Upon arrival, checkin to the Hotel and proceed to KILOHANA PLANTATION. Afterward, enjoy a narrated TRAIN RIDE which takes you on a tour of the historic plantation that passes through fruit orchards, lush gardens, and tropical farmland. Next, view pretty `Opaeka`a Falls on the Wailua River before continuing to sunny Poipu Beach and your resort.
A morning flight takes you to the “Valley Island” of Maui. Drive to the lush `IAO VALLEY to see the `Iao Needle, a spectacular volcanic spire. Visit LAHAINA, then continue on to Ka`anapali, your home for the next three nights. The balance of the day is at leisure.
DAY 4 KAUAI
Spend the day at your leisure. Take in refreshing ocean breezes from the beautiful white-sand beaches, immersing yourself in the heart of the island’s beauty. No activities have been scheduled today to give you time to relax and enjoy your oceanfront resort. (Optional tours include helicopter flightseeing or a zipline adventure in the mountains upon request).
Enjoy a full free day to swim and sunbathe at the beach or hotel pool. Another choice is the “Road to Hana,” one of the world’s most impressive drives, with 54 bridges and numerous waterfalls. From mid-December to mid-April, a humpback whale-watching cruise is available.
DAY 5 KAUAI
Drive to Waimea, once the Polynesian capital of Kauai and the site where Captain Cook landed in the islands in 1778. Sightseeing highlights include WAIMEA CANYON, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” and Hanapepe Valley. A stop at the largest coffee plantation in Hawaii, KAUAI COFFEE COMPANY, includes time at the visitor center, where you can learn about coffee production and the history of the Kauai Coffee Company. En route back to your hotel see SPOUTING HORN, the famous blowhole created from a lava tube. Spend your last evening on Kauai relaxing at the resort, exploring further, or indulging yourself in some souvenir shopping.
Enjoy a final free day in Maui. Perhaps take an optional excursion to Haleakala National Park, site of the huge volcanic Haleakala Crater, known as the “House of the Sun.” In 1980, this native ecosystem of cinder cones and dense rainforest was designated an International Biosphere Reserve. There’s plenty of time in the afternoon to relax and enjoy your hotel’s facilities and beach.
