Big Island Circumnavigation Bike Tours

 

The biggest draw of our Big Island bike tours is the sheer variety of cycling, climate, and terrain to be had on the Island. On a circumnavigation tour, you will experience the full breadth of climates and landscapes the island has to offer, from endless black volcanic flows to the lush green northern climes of the Hilo area.

 

Typically, we collect guests from Kona airport and take them to either Waikoloa or Kailua-Kona to start their trip. Towns on the circumnavigation itinerary include Hawi, Waimea, Captain Cook, Hilo, and Volcano. Those with time may choose to add on non-cycling tours in Volcano National Park or do some kayaking and snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay – or just hang out at the beach.

 

The Big Island is an island of contrasts. In the north, there is the white-sand coast of Waikoloa – the well known tropical Hawaii. Slightly off the beaten path is the Old Hawaii community of Hawi, known for its artist community. South of Hawi you climb up rolling hills to rugged cattle farms. Honoka’a is on the lush, east side of the island while – on the opposite side of the Island – the seaside town of Kona sees very little rain.  Just south of Kona you find the coffee belt – with stunning views along the coast – as well as some outstanding kayaking and snorkeling.

 

On the eastern side of the island, you’ll enjoy the 15-mile “Red Road” along the Puna coast, one of the most scenic stretches in the entire state and characterized by broad gentle slopes.  Much of the landscape is porous volcanic rock, and you’ll see lava fields, coconut groves, and rugged coastline, but you won’t see very many cars.  The Red Road will eventually take you to Volcanoes National Park which encompasses the active volcanoes of Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Not to be missed is where lava meets the ocean.

 

The southern portion of the island is the most sparsely populated (with its claim to fame being that it is the southernmost point of the United States). Here, you will have the opportunity to explore black sand beaches, cycle past macadamia cut orchards and coffee farms.  Kau, asides from being the home of Hawaiian families for generations, is also a favorite of writers, artists, philosophers and others seeking solitude.

 

Best Times for a Bike Tour on the Big Island of Hawaii

 

There’s no bad time to visit Hawaii. The Big Island enjoys a mild climate year round – with temperatures on the coast between 70°F and 80°F. Winter lasts from November through April and is slightly cooler and wetter. However, your specific location is the real predictor of temperature and rainfall. Generally the west coast is hot and dry. It gets wetter the further west you go and cooler the higher you go.
