The constant phone calls, the incessant e-mails, the slew of bills and those surprise issues that you weren’t expecting. Getting by can sometimes be a drag, making it difficult to truly enjoy every moment of your life, something that everybody should have the opportunity to do. While a Hawaiian vacation can’t fix all of the nuances of day-to-day living, our beautiful islands can definitely help you recharge by giving you an escape. More than just an escape though, the Hawaiian Islands are a way to help you get away from it all and have a chance to learn something new about yourself.
It’s one of the island chain’s most sought-after activities not just because it’s fun and exciting, but because it gives you the chance to truly escape everything. For a few hours of your day, everything is left behind so you can enjoy the warm tropical breeze, the freeing feeling of flying, and the serene views that surround you.
Of course, we’re talking about ziplining, and we want to make sure you know why you need to add it to your list of great Hawaiian activities to partake in!
Strap In and Forget It All
To get to your zipline experience, you typically take a short hike through the wilderness of Hawaii to the first platform, which serves as your launching point. If you still have things on your mind to ponder, it’s during this serene journey through the island’s natural beauty that you’ll want to get the last of it out, because once you’re atop that wooden platform, you’re going to leave all of your worries behind.
As you strap in to the state-of-the-art harness and tethering, you start to feel your mundane worries all wash away as you get a glimpse of the adventure that’s about to unfold in front of you. Your eyes train on the cable that cuts through the canopies of Hawaii’s tallest trees, and before you know it, after a brief safety talk, you’re riding that line down. The faster you go, the freer you feel. A warm tropical breeze rushes around you, washing away your worries as you get drawn into the experience. Thanks to our modern rigging, your hands are free to do as they want as your speed is regulated for you. We say spread your arms wide to feel like you’re flying over the terrain speeding below you.
Over the course of multiple lines that range anywhere from 300 to 900 feet, you find the weight on your shoulders lifting away so you can fully enjoy the rest of your stay in Hawaii. Each line is its own journey, offering you a different view of the great stretch of the island. On one line, you may be gazing upon the towering formation of mountainous terrain while another gives you panoramic views of the Hawaiian coastline.
So strap in, kick back, and let the world melt around you as you’re thrust into a Hawaiian adventure unlike any other!
