From US$40.00
Jog through Waikiki and Diamond Head's tropical environs during this 2- to 2.5-hour running tour on Oahu. With a running guide, depart from the famous Waikiki Beach and trek up to Diamond Head Lighthouse on foot. Run through the Diamond Head Crater and hike up to Diamond Head for panoramic views of the entire Honolulu downtown. Be sure to bring your camera for fantastic photo ops; listen to your guide's commentary about the area while you jog. The run covers 6-6.5 miles (9.5-11km) of hilly terrain both over pavement, trail and stairs .
What to Expect

This running, walking and hiking tour begins at the Honolulu Zoo at 6:30am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Along with a friendly, motivated guide, you'll begin the jog up Diamond Head crater before the day is too hot, and drink in the views of crashing surf and the Honolulu skyline. When you've worked up a healthy morning sweat, hike to the top of Diamond Head for a panoramic view of the city, which is sure to be the cover photo of your Hawaii album back home with its 360-degree view of entire Honolulu from Koolina all the way to Hawaii Kai. Photos can be taken by your guide during the tour and you will be provided with photo gallery access after the tour.
