Older kids will love a downhill bicycle ride through Waimea Canyon with Outfitters Kauai. The sunrise ride takes you to the top of the canyon down 13 miles of smooth winding blacktop overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The ride is four hours and the views are spectacular. The bikes are easy to ride, having wide saddles and hi-rise handlebars. We stopped for photos and to take in the views. Our leader stopped for coffee en route to the canyon and later gave out drinks and snacks during the ride. The ride was glorious and exhilarating, given the views of the skies at sunrise.
The cost is $86 per child ages 12 to 14 and $106 per adult ages 15 and older. The Waimea Canyon Downhill Bicycle Ride is good for kids ages 12 and up. Also available through Outfitters Kauai are zipline rides and kayak tours.
