Kauai Ultimate Off-Road Ranch Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
With its diverse landscape, abundant wildlife, and unparalleled views, Kipu Ranch is one of Kauai's premier eco-tour locations. Buckle up for an off-road adventure into the tropical Huleia Valley, riding a 4WD through verdant pastures and ascending Mt. Haupu for a view of Kipu Kai beach. You may recognize filming locations for ‘Jurassic Park,’ ‘Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ and ‘The Descendants.’
  • See some of Kauai’s best scenery on a 4WD tour of Kipu Ranch
  • Private and scenic ranch is only accessible on guided tours
  • Stop for photos at filming locations for movies including Jurassic Park
  • 4-person vehicles make a great family-friendly option
What to Expect
Meet at Kipu Ranch and gear up with a provided helmet and safety goggles. Get a lesson in operating a 2- or 4-person 4WD vehicle, and practice a bit if you decide to take the driver’s seat.
Head out with a guide to tackle challenging, unpaved trails that climb 800 feet (244 meters) from sea level to the top of Mt. Haupu and Kipu Kai ridge. Take in views of remote Kipu Kai beach, and descend through the tropical forests and river of Huleia Valley.
Along the way, see the rugged landscapes where hit movies like Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Descendants were filmed. Put yourself in the scene during photo stops, and take a ride on a rope swing worthy of Indiana Jones himself.

Loved the ATV tour. Our guides were great and were very helpful taking pictures, making sure everyone was comfortable driving their ATV and providing a snack and water. Loved the Indiana jones rope swing. Definitely hot and dusty but worth it for the beautiful scenery.

I wouldn't recommend taking small children. The road conditions can be rough and the ride can be bumpy so I think safety would be an issue.
