Looking for the best zipline in Hawaii?
Ziplining as an activity is known to be a huge rush of adrenaline, an experience similar to flying with little constraints and a huge amount of freedom.
But the other perk of ziplines is, of course, how it interacts with nature.
As you are zooming down a line, you are traveling over canyons and gorges. You are taking in rainforests and the creatures that live in them. You are experiencing (to quote Disney) a whole new world. 🙂
There is no better place to do that than Hawaii, with all of its beautiful surroundings and unusual, native plants and animals. Hawaii is actually the world’s largest island chain, with 132 islands making up the state.
However, only 7 of these are populated, and these are still some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world – the Hawaiian tropical rainforests have completely unique flora and fauna due to the fact that they are so separated as islands.
We can’t think of a better way to get a glimpse of these different environments than by flying over them on a zipline.
So, I have compiled a list of the best ziplines in Hawaii for you to experience for yourself!
First off, we will start with something that will ease you into Hawaii’s ziplining adventures. This 3-hour guided tour in the trees is perfect for almost all ages, allowing you to try out all of the different features involved in ziplining within a more beginner environment!

The aim of this course is to help you conquer your fears safely and to challenge you to believe in your ability to achieve. If this sounds like what you need in life, book your journey now!
