Highlights
See some of Kauai’s best scenery on a 4WD tour of Kipu Ranch
Private and scenic ranch is only accessible on guided tours
Stop for photos at filming locations for movies including Jurassic Park
4-person vehicles make a great family-friendly option
What to expect
Meet at Kipu Ranch and gear up with a provided helmet and safety goggles. Get a lesson in operating a 2- or 4-person 4WD vehicle, and practice a bit if you decide to take the driver’s seat. Head out with a guide to tackle challenging, unpaved trails that climb 800 feet (244 meters) from sea level to the top of Mt. Haupu and Kipu Kai ridge. Take in views of remote Kipu Kai beach, and descend through the tropical forests and river of Huleia Valley. Along the way, see the rugged landscapes where hit movies like Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Descendants were filmed. Put yourself in the scene during photo stops, and take a ride on a rope swing worthy of Indiana Jones himself.

Awesome Time!
Apr 2021
Tour guides were very knowledgeable about the area and told great stories. The ride is bumpy, dusty and muddy but ooohhhhh so much fun!!! Don't forget to wear something that you do not mind getting dirty and also something you can swim in so you can partake in the swimming at the water fall on the property. If you want to take pics or videos put your phone in a dust cover to protect it.

Amazing tour of the sights
Apr 2021
This was such an amazing tour! Our guide, Marlin - hopefully the spelling is right!!, had a wealth of knowledge and had so many interesting things to tell us. The sights were fantastic and extremely photo-worthy to send and brag to friends and family. We even happened to come across a family member who owned a large chunk of the island who was so incredibly kind to let us in to get a great view of the mountains and beach that very few get to see! I would highly, highly recommend.

A must-do!
Ky and Owen were our guides and they were beyond amazing. Incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable. Ky really dove deep into the rich history and sacred grounds. We were in awe of the beauty and deeper meanings. We saw land that not many of the locals get to see. We had fun learning about all the movies that were shot on the land. We felt so welcomed and it was so much fun. Everyone said happy birthday to me at the end which was so sweet and thoughtful of Ky to lead. We also appreciate how safety conscious they were! Definitely a must-do.

Phenomenal as always
Jan 2021
As usual, I had the most amazing time. I've gone on tour before and I could not stop raving about how flawless the entire experience was. Kaikea is so knowledgable about the ranch and history of the land, and really tries to make the tour unforgettable (and succeeds!). Ruth and Sadie at the front desk are so kind and helpful, answering any and all questions. I can't recommend these tours enough, you NEED to book when visiting Kauaʻi!!

Off Roading Hawaiian 🌺 Style
Jan 2021 • Couples
Whether you’ve been on a side-by-side ever or even if you are highly experienced, this is the number one go to place in Kauai Hawaii. I have known about Kipu ranch for over 10 years and this was our first opportunity to do so and it’s absolutely breathtaking views, wonderful way to learn the history of the island ( by the way Kia was an awesome guide ) and of course the Kawasaki MULE PRO FXT’s. the Kawasaki TERYX4 and the Kawasaki Teryx KRX1000 are all awesome rides, you have a choice of all three models, the ultimate side by side is the Kawasaki, and “That’s the Bottom line” I know that’s what our dear friend Steve Austin would say. #WorkHard #Playharder, and if you ever happen to be in the Houston Texas area please come by and see us at #uvcpowersports

Fun Times Driving through Mud
Nov 2020
This was a really fun tour. Driving the ATV through the bumps and puddles was a good time, and both me and my wife were able to take turns driving. The scenery was also very beautiful on the ranch, offering views you can't get from publicly accessible spots. Our guide Ryan was also very fun and informative, and he gave us some great food recommendations for the island as well.
