Kauai Hiking Tours

Live off the Land

The Food & Foraging Tour not only is fun, interesting and exciting, it’s practical.

You’ll learn skills that will help you survive if you ever find yourself lost in a forest.

You’ll hunt for edibles in wilderness regions of Kauai, collect them and prepare them.

You’ll weave cordage from vines, build shelters from branches and leaves and make fire by rubbing dried branches together (it works!).

Most people are familiar with bananas, guavas and lilikoi (passion fruit), but guide Jeremiah Felsen, who completed survival training with the Marine Corps, also points out the virtues of thimbleberries, limu (seaweed), opihi (limpets) and mountain apples.
