Most people don’t want to go hiking when it’s scorching hot or frost-bite freezing. The winter weather in Hawaii provides the best opportunities to see everything the islands have to offer – so much more than just its beaches. The Kalalau Trail in Kauai is the definition of rugged beauty in a tropical setting; the Waihee Ridge Trail in Maui is stunning with its bright greenery, lush forest and winding ridge. Hiking the Kīlauea, an active volcano, is a must-do. Along the Kīlauea Iki Trail you will descend to the floor of the solidified but still steaming lava lake.
