Explore a Hawaiian forest on an ATV adventure that also presents insights into Polynesian culture. On your adventure you will drive through the villages of Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa where you will enjoy hands-on activities and experiences with your Polynesian guides.
HAWAII ... learn the meaning of the word "Aloha" which has become one of the most famous words in the world. Taste the traditional staple found at Hawaiian Luaus ... freshly prepared poi made from the taro plant. Luaus were born out of the religious taboo that prevented men and women from eating together in ancient Hawaii.
FIJI ... fighting was literally a way of life in these islands . Fijian warriors relied on well developed agility and alertness instead of the protection of armor. While you stop in Fiji, you will be able to test your skills by throwing a traditional spear at its target. Also, enjoy the traditional Fijian game of blindfolded pineapple smashing using a warrior club.
TONGA ... known as the "Friendly Islands" ... at this stop you will learn the mauluulu (a type of sitting dance while on your ATV). Play the lali ... giant wooden drums ... learning how Tongans used them during welcoming and other ceremonies.
SAMOA ... these people know how to have fun ... their sense of humor is known throughout Polynesia. You will see the traditional living quarters, or fale (houses), containing no walls and up to 20 people may sleep on the ground in the same fale. At the Samoan village you will learn how to crack open a coconut using a small rock and have a drink of fresh coconut water. As a final challenge, can you start a fire with two sticks while using the coconut husk? Maybe you will learn how!

Kevin's Activity Tips:
Aloha Adventure Farms is one of the newer tour operators on the Big Island, and they are getting early rave reviews from guests. Travelers today are not just looking for adventure ... they are looking to connect with the places they visit. That's what this tour is about. More than just an ATV ride ... their are shared cultural experiences and local knowledge being presented by the Polynesian guides. They seem less like "tour guides" and more life "new local friends" as you interact at the various stops.
There are other ATV options available on the Big Island, but the others require a LONG drive from the Kona area. This is tour that can be done in a few hours with just a few minutes driving from downtown Kona hotels and condos located along Alii drive.
The ATV's are fully automatic and easy to drive. Most people ... even those with no ATV riding experience ... have no problem learning the controls in just a few minutes. This is not a difficult ride, but it does involve a moving vehicle. While the tour is designed with safety in mind, any tour that involves a moving vehicle does have a risk of injury associated with it. Liability waivers are required of all participants, and drivers are responsible for their own safety based upon safe and attentive operation of the vehicles.
