The first day of our tour begins on the IRONMAN world championship course, pausing at the Pololu Valley overlook for our first glimpse of the Hamakua coastline.

WAIMEA TO VANILLA FACTORY

 

NORTH KOHALA

Hawai’i grows some of the best vanilla in the world, and on this invigorating ride you’ll work to enjoy it!

WOOD VALLEY TO SOUTH POINT

 

DISTRICT OF KA’U

The most serene and scenic ride on the Big Island starts and finishes in South Point, the southernmost point in the U.S. After a quick stop at Punalu’u Bakery, we’ll work off the baked goods by climbing along the slopes of Mauna Loa all the way to Wood Valley. Easily one of the least traveled areas, we get old cane haul roads all to ourselves as we descend back to South Point. Relax and enjoy the view, or go for a cliff jump at the spot known as the end of the earth.

MAUNA LOA

Mauna Loa is often eclipsed by its neighbor, Mauna Kea, but trust us, this is by far a better ride. After climbing quiet roads up the north side of the 13,670 foot volcano we’ll descend into the Volcanoes National Park past ancient Ohia forests to the edge of the active Kilauea crater.
