Do you want to explore the lush Big Island landscape to the fullest, all while having an amazing time? If so, you just need to book your spot with Botanical World Adventures. Set in beautiful Hakalau, this tour company offers zipline rides, bike adventures, and Segway explorations to remember. On top of that, they have a challenging hedge maze to conquer all on your own.

To go on any – or all – of their awesome adventures, you’ll need to book your spot ahead of time using their website. You just have to select your desired trip, and then book the date and time you prefer. After that, get ready to go on your tour of choice.

You will need to wear light layers plus closed-toe shoes. Also, plan on putting on SPF 50+ reef-safe sunblock right before you arrive. Then, reapply it every two hours to avoid getting sunburnt. If you have long hair, bring a ponytail holder, so you can tie it back. Beyond all that, put your prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and camera on a strap. While you should keep all your valuables in your hotel safe, don’t forget to bring cash, so you can tip your guide.

On the day of your tour, plan to get to their gorgeous Hakalau property about 30 minutes early. You’ll need time to check in, after all, and then go over the safety rules. After that, your knowledgeable guide will kickstart the tour, while sharing interesting facts about the Big Island. You’ll get to see many breathtaking tropical plants, waterfalls, and everything in between. If you have any questions about what you see, just look to your guide for the answers you seek.

Their top tours include:

If you want to fly high above the rainforest canopy, sign up for their Zipline tour. On this trip, you’ll travel down seven ultra-long ziplines, often reaching over 50 miles per hour. All along the way, views of their arboretum, rainforest trail, Kamaee Falls, and more will keep you enamored.

For an effortless trip through the lush rainforest, join the Segway adventures. On this tour, you’ll get to glide along the paved trail on a Segway Personal Transporter. You’ll get to see all the best sights along the way right up close, including the gorgeous waterfalls all around.

Whenever you want to feel the wind through your hair while working up a sweat in paradise, book your spot on their Bike tour. During that ride, you’ll get to explore the Hamakua Coast at your own speed, stopping at various points to take in the scenic views.  

If you feel like there’s nothing better than a good puzzle, you definitely need to try out the Maze. Built out of stunning green hedgerows, the maze challenges you to find your way from start to finish in record time. After that, you can go on a self-guided tour of their gardens to see over 26 acres of tropical vegetation.

Are you looking for the perfect venue for your wedding? Just ask about all their options while planning your big day. You can say your vows in front of up to 100 people out on the Kamaee Falls Overlook. Or keep it intimate with a ceremony for up to 20 on the Hanapueo Falls Trail. If you have a huge guest list, consider the Avocado Grove instead. Their wedding venues stay booked nearly year-round, so be sure to reserve your spot well ahead of your big day.
