5 Hawaiian Adventures For A Once In A Lifetime Vacation

There are few places more magical than the tropical islands of Hawaii. For many travelers, Hawaii is at the top of their destination list. It may be the endless sunny days, the magnificent beaches or the tropical delights that draw them to the islands, but for some, it is the pure adventure.

With the primitive and pristine coastlines and lush tropical beauty, you can enjoy thrills from the sea to the tip of an ancient volcano. If you enjoy the more offbeat travel locations where you can really get wild, Hawaii is the place for you.

Explore the depths of the crystal clear oceans on a scuba or snorkeling adventure, hike to the edge of an active volcano or take the biggest leap of faith and get married while you are on the islands.

Volcano Hiking

Take a once in a lifetime trek to the Kilauea volcano and watch nature's power on full display as it spews hot lava into the ocean waters. This magnificent sight is located in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the big island of Oahu. These ranger-led tours can be enjoyed by the whole family. Walk the 7-mile hiking loop or bike the 32-mile Summit to Sea trail. There are two campgrounds available for those who want to take a few days to discover this part of the island.

Snorkeling and Scuba

There are few places left on the planet that offer up such a rich and diverse underwater experience as the Hawaiian islands. Even if you have never been scuba diving, there are plenty of dive shops around the islands that can help you get your certification in just one day. Snorkel and scuba with the experts that know the waters, the wildlife and the risks. Take the opportunity to see incredible marine life up close including whales, spinner dolphins, sea turtles and giant manta rays.

Hawaiian Cowboys

If you have ever wanted to work on a cattle ranch, you can find one of the best ones right in Hawaii. Although ranching isn't what most people think of when they think of this tropical paradise, it has one of the oldest and most successful cattle ranches in the world today. Live the cowboy dream and become a ranch hand or paniolos on the Ponoholo Ranch and enjoy a City Slickers-type adventure on the lush grounds of this tropical oceanside working ranch.

Get Hitched

If you are ready for the adventure of a lifetime you can always get married while you are in Hawaii. Host the perfect sunset beach wedding or say your vows next to an active volcano. There are plenty of scenic spots to choose from, and companies like www.accelrentals.com can provide everything you need for the tropical wedding of your dreams. From small intimate events to large lavish ballroom weddings, there are plenty of options for celebrating your love surrounded by the lush beauty of the islands.

If you haven't tried ziplining yet, you are missing out on a fun adventure. At the Kualoa Reserve on the island of Oahu you can fly through the jungle trees suspended from a securely harnessed zipline. There is no better way to take in the incredible views than from above. Enjoy 7 zipline courses, traverse 2 daring suspension bridges and take in the vista on one of the three hikes through the jungle.
