For the ultimate bucket list holiday why not go on the trip of a lifetime, island hopping in Hawaii and California! This two week holiday takes in San Francisco and Los Angeles along with the 3 main islands in Hawaii, Oahu, Kauai and Maui where you will find beautiful beaches, emerald rainforests, iconic volcanoes, rich culture and plenty more!
Your holiday begins in the waterfront city of San Francisco, famous for its steep hills and old-style cable cars. Take a stroll around Fisherman’s Wharf, a lively waterfront area full of local stores, restaurant, and experiences for you to enjoy the bay and where you can catch a ferry ride to Alcatraz Island or see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Then to Oahu. One of the best known of the islands it is home to Honolulu and the famous Waikiki Beach – the ultimate surf spot! Oahu is also known for its delicious cuisine, rich Polynesian culture and wartime history.
Next up is Kauai. Known as the Garden Island, the landscape is marked by emerald valleys, jagged mountain peaks and cascading waterfalls. The perfect spot for brilliant hiking routes, ziplining over green rainforests and kayaking in the rushing rivers. On Kauai you’ll also find plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in rich Hawaiian culture for an experience like no other.
The last stop on your island hopping trip to Hawaii is Maui which was formed by the merging of lava flow from two different volcanoes and so is full of peaks and valleys to explore. Pay a visit to Haleakala National Park, home to the Haleakala crater and the best place on the island to take in the breath taking Hawaiian sunrise. Take a scenic drive along the road to Hana, a stunning coastal route that brings you to Honokalani Beach to stroll along the black volcanic sand or take a dip in the refreshing waters.
Final stop is Los Angeles, a city known for its year-round sunny weather, beaches and of course Hollywood! Malibu and Santa Monica beaches are a great place to soak up some sun, visit the Getty Observatory, with its exhibitions and incredible gardens or find your favourite movie stars along on the Walk of Fame. With famous neighbourhoods like Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Venice there’s lots to experience in LA.
