Guided Tours of Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary



Here at Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary we graciously share our privately owned 70-acres of cloud forest with adventurous tourists, horticulture enthusiasts, educators and students. Allowing people to experience this unique splendor of tropical flora, we create further awareness of Earth’s most threatened natural community – Tropical Forests. Cloud forests are even more endangered than other types of forests making this a truly rare opportunity.

See for yourself! This very special sanctuary protects plants, birds and the human spirit with its peaceful isolation and cool climate. As you walk through the forest trail, under the canopy of 30 foot tall tree ferns, palm trees, ʻōhiʻa lehua and bamboo, you will be fascinated by the songs of birds and colorful blossoms.

We continue to encourage educators and horticulture enthusiasts to utilize Kona Cloud Forest for field trips, workshops and lectures. We provide a living classroom that brings to life the subjects often not covered in written material. We are open to further alignment with organizations and educational institutions, expanding our offerings in tropical cloud forest education. If you are an educator, connect with us!
