During our time in Kauai we did a lot of incredible things. Since there are quite a few pictures (surprise!) I’m going to divide it into a couple of different posts.
We first arrived to the island late on the 26th of December and didn’t get a chance to do anything but eat pizza and sleep 8+ hours. So far, excellent vacation. We stayed in the small town of Hanalei on the rainy part of the island. Lucky for us most of the days were sunny or had very little ran. The following day was spent at the beach, alternating between playing in the warm, clear water, and lounging on the sand. I know, life was really hard. We decided to be a bit more adventurous the next day…and what is more adventurous than a helicopter tour of the island?
Since Kauai is fairly undeveloped (thank goodness) it is difficult to access a large part of the island. Well, except by helicopter. We saw truly spectacular views up in the helicopter. Big mountains, a giant canyon rushing waterfalls and Puff the Magic Dragon (or so the
song writers some say…). Look for yourself:
Absolutely incredible, right? Yes, all kinds of beautiful. If you have the time (and the $$) I would highly suggest doing an activity like this. We used Blue Hawaiian Helicopters and had a fantastic experience (and a great tour guide).
It was honestly a little bit scary at the very beginning during take off, but overall it was totally worth it!
Have you ever done a helicopter tour? Or, would you be willing to try it?
