About
Head to the base of Oahu's tallest volcano where Hawaiian varietals of sugarcane are grown for Ko Hana Rum Distillery. Ko Hana Distillery embraces the natural earthiness and sweetness of the Ko. They grow single-varietals that are hand-harvested, pressed to juice then distilled to perfection, resulting in one of the world's finest Agricole rums in the world. Take a tour of their facility starting with a stroll through their garden of Native Hawaiian Sugarcanes to learn their history then finish at the tasting bar comparing white and aged rums side by side. After the tour join us as we ascend the mountain to a trailhead high above the hustle and bustle of the Island. At an elevation of 2,400 feet, Enjoy sweeping views of the West Coast. Our naturalist guide will share the rich history and culture of the Island. After a serene walk through the forest, relax and enjoy Island fresh appetizers as you relish the glow of a Hawaiian sunset. Sunset views vary with Mother Nature.

Unique, Educational, Challenging, Can't Miss activity on Oahu!!
Jan 2020
We signed up for this activity because it had "rum tasting" and "sunset" in the title, but the hike through a private forest was probably the highlight.
The activity was unique in that it involved a tour and tasting at a rum distillery, which uses pure sugar cane in its process. The tasting was fun and I plan to order some of the chocolate/honey infused rum from the website for delivery to the states.
The activity was educational as a result of our guide, Peter's passion and knowledge about the island.
The hike was, at times, challenging (for two middle aged women and an octogenarian), but Peter expertly paced the adventure, stopping to talk about flora and fauna and history along the way.
Our sunset was somewhat obscured by clouds, but resulted in a stunning impressionistic view from up in the mountains.
Did I mention that Hawaiian Forest & Trails is well-prepared, provides walking sticks, rain gear (we didn't need), water bottles, etc., as well as a picnic following the hike while the sun is setting.
Can't think of too much more to say other than Peter was delightful and I strongly recommend this tour.
One more thing: the tour included transportation to and from our hotel in Ko Olina.
