2. Take a Helicopter Tour

Another great thing to do in Oahu’s North Shore is take a helicopter tour. It’s the next best way to see the sights after ziplining.

Some of the sights you’ll see include Hanauma Bay, Makapu’u Lighthouse and Ka’a’awa Valley. Helicopter tours are great for people of all ages!

3. Hike Waimea Valley

Waimea Valley in OahuOne activity you don’t want to miss is hiking — especially hiking Waimea Valley. The Waimea Valley Trail is a 1.9-mile out and back trail that is great for all skill levels! It is considered more of a leisurely stroll than a hike. You get to walk through the botanical gardens full of wildflowers and enjoy the sights. The star of the show, however, is the gorgeous 30-foot waterfall you will see on your hike. Not only can you admire the beautiful waterfall views, you can swim in the pool at the bottom! It’s a great way to cool off after your walk.

4. Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center

At the Polynesian Cultural Center, you can spend the day exploring the heritage of the Pacific Islands. You can visit authentic island villages and talk with natives from 6 Pacific cultures, enjoy the royal Ali’i Luau feast that includes a variety of mainland dishes along with island entertainment, and stay for the evening show that’s an action-packed story of passion ignited by fire, song and dance. You can even visit the Hukilau Marketplace for a shopping and dining experience you won’t forget. The Polynesian Cultural Center is a great place to go to experience Hawaiian culture!

Now that you know all the best things to do on Oahu’s North Shore when you visit, it’s time to plan your trip! Start by booking our zipline tour, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
