Big Island Forest Cloud Sanctuary Walk


Forest Cloud Botanical Walk

Hawaii Hiking Tours Big Island at Botanical Sanctuary. A surprisingly short distance from busy Kailua-Kona is a lush forest on the slopes of the sleeping volcano called Hualalai. There we find a private and very special sanctuary that nurtures 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 birds and the thousand shades of green the forest displays.
Engaging information is presented about the wide-range of botanical specimens, and the geographic context. Many comment on the calm and peaceful feeling this environment engenders.
