You’ll Absolutely Love A Ride On Hawaii’s Picturesque Plantation Train This Summer
From breathtaking ocean views to majestic mountain landscapes, the Hawaiian Islands are home to some incredible scenic vistas. While we love all of the incredible scenic drives you’ll find across the Aloha State, sometimes you want to experience something a little different. And that’s exactly what this picturesque plantation train ride has to offer: scenic views, a history lesson, and plenty of fun. All aboard the Kauai Plantation Railway!
Located on the Kilohana Plantation, passengers who hop aboard the Kauai Plantation Railway will be rewarded with magnificent views around every corner — from an unusual mix of tropical plants and trees to friendly farm animals.
The Kauai Plantation Railway is unique in that it is the first new railroad to be built on Kauai in nearly 100 years.
More than 2.5 miles of railway have been constructed using more than 6,000 wood ties and tens of thousands of pounds of iron rail to create this railroad reminiscent of those you would find across Hawaii more than a century ago.
This train ride is unlike any other you’ll find in America. Your tour begins in an authentic Hawaiian railway depot where you can explore a unique train depot stop before hearing the whistle of the approaching train.
From the platform, you will climb aboard either a reproduction of the railway cars used during the reign of King Kalakaua or an open-sided excursion car used on Oahu before World War
Once aboard the train, your knowledgeable guide will not only point out the various tropical plants you will find throughout this working farm, but will give you a bit of a history lesson as well.
We can't forget to mention the phenomenal views you'll find along this incredible journey. Don't forget your camera!
The premier tour features a ride aboard the train, a hike through the rainforest and a picnic lunch followed by the sampling of fresh tropical fruits directly from the tree.
You can also hop aboard for a standard, 40-minute train ride, or even their luau and train tour combo. No matter which train tour you choose, you’re sure to have a memorable time!
Can you imagine a more perfect afternoon in paradise? We sure can’t!
This phenomenal train ride isn't the only attraction you'll find at Kilohana Plantation, though. There is also a renowned restaurant, gift shops, boutiques, and even a luau. This heavenly Kauai plantation is truly what dreams are made of.
