Waimea Canyon, Wailua River and Fern Grotto Tour
Tour Participation Requirements
You won’t find fairies, pixies or magical inhabitants dancing around at Fern Grotto, as they did in the 1992 cartoon Fern Gully, but your mind will go to a magical place when you first lay eyes on this this strange manifestation.
The lava rock is covered with ferns that would prefer to hang upside down than do things the easy way. This is a result of moisture seeping from the old sugarcane fields, that once grew just above the cliff and provided the ferns or seeds with water on the roof of the cave, thus allowing them to root to the celling and grown downwards.
Another strange anomaly of the Grotto is the way it takes sound and amplifies it like a natural microphone. Acting like an innate sound system, locals use the cave to serenade visitors with Hawaiian wedding songs, which is the icing on the cake to this unique experience. It may take your mind a minute to process this Alice in Wonderland magical place but get ready to do that a lot of this enchanted adventure through Kauai.
I ain’t afraid of no ghost
The Wailua River was once a place where only Hawaiian royalty could go, and the remains of their temples still dot the landscape. Today, the Wailua Valley has very few residents, many of whom are said to be the ghosts of ancient warriors who walk the trails at night. Good thing this is a daytime tour!
