Go off-roading in Kauai on a 4x4 tour of Kipu Ranch, a historic landscape of mountains, valleys, and the secluded Kipu Kai beach. Get a lesson in driving a 4WD vehicle, or ride as a passenger if you prefer. Follow a guide to reach hidden and remote parts of the private ranch you’ll recognize from movies like Jurassic Park and The Descendants, stopping to take photos at each spot.

  • 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.

You drive the whole time, and these vehicles are made for rough terrain and abuse. Along with riding there are several stops along the way to enjoy the scenery and views and history.

We signed up for the 7:00 AM to 10:30 ranch tour. Was perfect timing since we flew in the night before and would be up early, plus it's a little less expensive and less busy. From my initial phone call to questions to signing up everyone was helpful and patient. Upon
