3-weekse reis naar Hawaii, bezoek aan 5 magische eilanden


Dag 1: internationale vlucht Amsterdam – Honolulu

Vandaag is de dag, uw Hawaiaanse avontuur gaat van start. U arriveert in Honolulu (Oahu) om waar u verwelkomd wordt door onze lokale agent en naar uw hotel wordt gebracht. U brengt deze eerste nacht in Hawaii door in het Waikiki parkshore hotel of soortgelijk.


Gaze at Diamond Head and shimmering white-sand beaches at Park Shore Waikiki. Overlooking the lush expanses of Kapiolani Park, our breezy Honolulu accommodations perfectly blend classic Hawaiian charm and modern convenience. Discover a tranquil hotel in perfect harmony with the natural rhythms of the majestic island of Oahu. Step out, and explore the stretch of shoreline that extends right outside of the Park Shore Waikiki.



Ongetemde wildernis, serene landschappen en ongerepte kustlijnen vindt u allemaal op het eiland Molokai,  wat ook bekend staat als ‘The friendly Island’. ‘Aloha’ is niet alleen een woord, maar een manier van leven. Op Molokai is geen gebouw hoger dan een palmboom, gaat alles in een rustig Polynesisch tempo en heerst de ware hawaiiaanse cultuur. Het leven is relaxed, kalm en vredig. Het is alsof je 50 jaar terug in de tijd stapt. Er wonen dan ook nergens zoveel hawainen als op Molokai. Het eiland is rijk aan historische en landschappelijke bezienswaardigheden. Aan de noordkust reizen steile zeekliffen op uit de oceaan, hier zijn prachtige watervallen te vinden. In de grootste stad van het eiland ‘Kaunakakaei’ en in de dorpjes Kaulapu’u en Maunaloa hebben bezoekers de kans om te winkelen in de vriendelijke kleine zaakjes. De bezoekers van Molokai zijn vaak op zoek naar ongerepte natuur en rust en dat is allemaal te vinden op dit prachtig eiland.  


Dag 2 t/m 4: Molokai

Na een goede nachtrust wordt u op dag 2 naar de luchthaven van Oahu gebracht voor een binnenlandse vlucht naar Molokai. Op het vliegveld van Molokai staat uw huurauto al voor u klaar. U overnacht hier de komende 3 nachten in het Aqua hotel of soortgelijk.

Optionele excursies op Molokai


Halawa Valley & Moaula Falls

Hike into the East End’s classic cathedral valley to see Hawaii back in time. It is believed ancient Polynesians settled in lush Halawa Valley as early as 650 AD. With many hidden heiau (places of worship) it's easy to see why this area, half a mile wide and three to four miles deep, and blessed with beautiful vistas and towering waterfalls, is one of the island's most historic areas. Roughly two miles up the trail is the impressive, double-tiered 250-foot Mooula Falls. Hawaiian legend says that a giant moo (lizard) lives at the bottom of the pool. Before swimming, visitors are advised to drop a ti leaf into the water. If it floats, it is safe to swim. However if it sinks, the mo'o is angry and will not welcome you. Because the valley is the location of Molokai's oldest settlement, you will find many ancient stone walls of temples, house sites, and taro (kalo) patches. Listen to your guides as they bring this ancient history alive in the many stories they share with you about the archeological sites you will see along the trail to Moaula falls. The hike is 4.2 miles round trip, with two moderate river crossings. Climbing over falling trees and branches is always a possibility, especially after a storm. Access to the falls is with guides only as the trail to the falls crosses private land.

Prijsinformatie: 4 à 5 uur durende wandeling voor $72.50 p.p. 


Kalaupapa National Historical Park

It's quiet as you ride on your mule along the 2.9-mile trail to Kalaupapa Peninsula. You would be speechless too riding along sheer cliffs overlooking the Pacific, descending from 1,700 feet and with Molokai’s North Shore Pali just to the east - the tallest sea cliffs in the world as recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records, measuring 3,600 to 3,900 feet.


Three miles, 26 switchbacks and 90 minutes of magnificent views later and you're back to sea level in the historic town of Kalaupapa, one of the most remote settlements in Hawaii. It's scenic, isolated and peaceful here, but the story of Kalaupapa National Historical Park is even more compelling. 

You'll be met by your Damien Tours guide and for the next few hours you'll experience one of Hawaii's most remarkable tours, in a community hidden from the world for so many years. You will learn about the leper colony, its people, incredible tales of struggle and human suffering, along with stories of courage and love.  


Prijsinformatie: circa 7 uur durende tour $ 208 p.p


Openingstijden: Monday till Saturday only.

Haleakala National Park

Stretching across Maui’s southern and eastern coastline, Haleakala National Park is home to Maui's highest peak. Rising 10,023 feet above sea level, Haleakala's graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakala means "house of the sun" in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun from its journey across the sky as he stood on the volcano’s summit, slowing its descent to make the day last even longer. The park is comprised of over 30,000  acres of public land, has three separate visitors centers and covers a range of natural environments. You can travel atop the highest peaks of Haleakala. As the park stretches out to the coast towards sea level you can even visit lush tropical areas full of waterfalls and streams. Many visitors and locals wake up early to drive up to the Haleakala Visitor Center (9,740 feet), the best spot to watch the sunrise. On a clear morning, seeing the sunrise from the summit of Haleakala is an unforgettable experience. Even those who’ve witnessed the event many times say they’ve never seen the same sunrise twice. Perhaps just as spectacular are Haleakala's sunsets and the bright, starry skies revealed at night. The long, winding road to the summit of Haleakala takes some time to drive up, but is well worth the effort. There are numerous hiking trails that offer solitude and scenic vistas, while guided hikes provide an expert's guidance and insight. You’ll discover more endangered species here than any other park in the National Park Service. You may even spot a Nene (Hawaiian goose) or a blooming ahinahina plant (silversword) on your visit. Visitors can also camp here, with two separate campgrounds and cabins available.


Prijsinformatie: All park visitors are required to purchase a recreational use pass upon entering Haleakala National Park. Passes are non-transferable.

Openingstijden:  Haleakala National Park is open year-round, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except during severe weather closures. The park is open 24 hours a day. 


Drive-up camping: For  those who need an overnight escape without a backpack trip, the park offers two car accessible campgrounds: Kipahulu and Hosmer Grove. Kipahulu campground is near sea level on the wet, east-side of the island in the Kipahulu area of the park, which is reached via the Hana Highway. Hosmer Grove is on the way to the summit, high on the windy slopes of Haleakala. Campground space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. No permit or reservation required or accepted. A person may camp up to 3 nights per month in each of the Hosmer Grove and Kipahulu campgrounds.

Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary

The Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary on Maui, was once a royal fish pond. Known in Hawaiian history as the twin ponds of Kapuoho in honor of King Kapiiohookalani. King Kapiiohookalani started building these ponds over 200 years ago for storing and fattening fish.  The twin ponds were named after his children, Kanaha and Mauoni. The Kanaha Pond is also an important breeding location for three endangered Hawaiian birds: the Hawaiian duck, the stilt, and the coot, as well as the endangered sphinx moth. Located on 143-acres, this preserve is a stopping point for Canadian geese as they migrate south for the winter. About 200 stilts make the two-foot-deep pond their permanent residence.In 1951 the Hawaiian government formally designated the pond as a bird refuge. This pond was designated a registered natural landmark in late 1971.


Prijsinformatie: gratis toegang


Openingstijden: Kanaha Pond wildlife sanctuary is open from sunrise to sunset, between August 31 to March 31 annually.



The Big Island is bijna twee keer zo groot als de overige eilanden bij elkaar. Het is niet alleen het grootste, maar ook het jongste eiland van de archipel. De geografische en klimatologische gevarieerdheid van het eiland is zo groot, dat je zou kunnen spreken van een mini-continent. Het gehele eiland wordt ondertunneld door lavatunnels, ontstaan door de vele lavastromen die in de ontstaansgeschiedenis maar ook nu nog zorgdragen voor de vormgeving van The Big Island. 


De vulkaan Mauna Kea, gemeten van de voet op de bodem van de Stille Oceaan tot de top, is meer dan 9000 meter hoog, en het is daarmee de hoogste berg ter wereld, hoger dan Mount Everest. Omdat Mauna Loa en Kilauea actieve vulkanen zijn, neemt het eiland nog steeds in oppervlakte toe. 


In het Volcanoes national park kunt u de vulkaan Kilauea bezoeken en kennis opdoen over vulkanische activiteit. De rode lavastroom is vaak te zien nabij de kust in het zuidelijk deel van het park. 


Aan de westkust ligt Kona, langs de Kona kust ligt de meest heilige plaats van de Hawaiianen, de "Place of Refuge". In dit historische park wordt op beeldende wijze uitleg gegeven over de cultuur van de oorspronkelijke bewoners van Hawaï. Van bergtoppen met sneew tot prachtige zwarte zandstranden, Big Island is een betoverend eiland. 


Dag 10 t/m 16: Big Island

U levert uw huurauto op het vliegveld in en neemt vervolgens een binnenlandse vlucht naar Big Island. Op het vliegveld van Big Island staat uw volgende huurauto alweer voor u klaar. U overnacht deze dagen in 3 verschillende accommodaties.
