Description

Train hike lunch Orchard Tour

Our premier tour—ride the train, hike in the rainforest, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch under a spreading tree, and then for dessert sample fresh tropical fruits that you pick directly from the tree!

Following the first segment of our train ride, your guide will lead you into the densely lush and ginger-scented Kahuna Nui Valley. This tropical rainforest is bursting with tropical plants and flowers. As you leisurely hike into the valley and walk along the rushing creeks you will learn about the native plants, exotic fruits, flowers, and birds that you are seeing in their natural Hawaiian environment.

The trail will wind you to the perfect shady location for your gourmet deli lunch. Get to know your fellow hikers, feed the animals or stretch out on the lawn and let the trade winds cool you. The final segment of your excursion takes you through our fruit orchards where we encourage you to take a “hands-on” approach. Sample fresh pineapple, mango, papaya or rambutan straight from the tree.

Engine_Halawa_-2-EditRailroads on Kauai date back to 1881, with the first track laid at Kilauea Plantation. Workers often rode out to the sugar cane fields on the railways and daily work involved loading the cars with tons of cut cane headed to the mills and processed sugar to the shipping landings. However, following WWII improvements to trucking and hauling vehicles led to the demise of Hawaii’s railway systems. Plantation railroads were largely gone by 1950, with only the Lihue Plantation in service until 1959. Kauai Plantation Railway is the first new railroad to be built on Kauai in nearly 100 years.

Translated from Hawaiian, the name Kilohana literally means “not to be surpassed.” This was certainly the case in 1935, when sugar baron Gaylord Wilcox built his legendary 16,000 square foot plantation estate. In its heyday, Kilohana was the site of many extravagant parties and ceremonies. It remains a Historic Landmark and one of the finest examples of plantation era architecture in Hawaii
