A surprisingly short distance from the arid coast is a lush forest on the slopes of the (currently) sleeping volcano called Hualalai. At an elevation of 3,000 feet, we find a private and very special sanctuary that protects plants, birds and the human spirit with its peaceful isolation. As we move quietly through native forest, and among palms, tree ferns, blossoms and bamboo from around the world, our senses are soothed by the cool air, the songs of the birds, and the thousand shades of green the forest displays.
A variety of exotic, often rescued birds (caged as required by law) display their splendid beauty. Walk on unpaved trails through an astonishing array of plant specimens from around the world. Your guide will provide engaging information about the botanical and geological wonders around you. A visit to a local coffee farm and roasting facility tops off this tour.
“A very pleasant and gentle exploration of a beautiful garden/forest. Well organized and enjoyable. Makes me want to learn more.”
