Why Kauai Is The Best Place For Off-Roading

Kauai is the oldest and furthest North Hawaiian island. Frequently called “The Garden Island”. Without question, this is the best place to go for everything outdoors and adventure – of course, that includes off-roading. Between the rugged Na Pali Coastline and the towering valleys of Waimea Canyon, there is no shortage of places to explore.

The island offers a plethora of terrain to explore and you even get to adventure through places seen directly in movies. Drive through famed Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean film locations and get muddy while doing it. If that’s not enough, read about the fun of ATV tours and why off-roading is so much fun in the first place. The bottom line is that Kauai is the most fun to explore and has some of the best off-roading trails in all of Hawaii.
