The city of Hilo is surrounded by some of Hawaii’s most scenic wonders, and on this 7-line Hilo ziplining tour, you can literally soar past thundering falls as you zip through a tropical rainforest. Learn about traditional Hawaiian agriculture as you zip by Akaka Falls State Park, and once you’re comfortable sitting in the harness and feeling the exhilarating rush, prepare for the dramatic crossing that’s one of the longest zipines in Hawaii, and feel the rush of wind on your face as the forest opens up beneath you.
What to Expect
With its thundering waterfalls, deeply carved valleys, and verdant, tropical rainforest, Hilo is the perfect place to go ziplining and soar across the sky. This Hilo zipline tour takes place not far from Akaka Falls State Park, and features a dramatic aerial view of Kolekole Falls. This section of the Big Island, along the Hamakua Coast, is known for its beautiful botanical gardens and abundance of cascading falls. Experiencing the scenery from up in the air is an adventure you’ll never forget.

This Hilo zipline course spans seven lines, and also features views of the Pacific Ocean from up on the mountainous ridgelines. The course is designed for all comfort levels, as the first line is the shortest which then build up from there. Even if you’ve never been zipling before or have gone a dozen times, there are views, thrills, and heart-stopping moments that all different skill levels can enjoy. Additionally, each of the lines are named after a traditional staple of Hawaiian agriculture, and your guide will offer historical insight on native Hawaiian culture, as well as teach you sustainable practices that are still important to this day. You’ll even get to sample some tropical Hawaiian fruits while walking between the lines.

Finally, having already successfully crossed six lines, the pièce de résistance is the final line that is believed to be one of the longest ziplines in the country. As if the length isn't dramatic enough, you’ll soar right over a 250-foot (76-meter) waterfall while zipping between the two ridgelines, with the cobalt waters of the Pacific Ocean completing the view.

Great first-time zip

My guy and I went on a whim during our vacation. Gabe and Charles were top notch guides! They really made the experience exceptional. David, the driver, likewise added to the fun. Scenery was grand! The bites of local fruit were a nice surprise.
