This combination of agritourism and ecotourism takes you to the Waipa ahupuaa, one of 67 watersheds homesteaded by the first Polynesians. Guests are saturated in timeless beauty as they learn about Hawaii’s culture and food. This one-of-a-kind experience was designed for those who wish to explore traditional agriculture and food, and how it relates to today. In a verdant valley surrounded by majestic peaks, guests explore a vast loi (taro garden) fed by auwai, or irrigation system, that supplies water from mountain streams. While learning about Hawaii’s staff of life: taro, or kalo as it’s known in Hawaii, guests sample cooked taro corms, poi and kulolo, a traditional dessert made with coconut. Lunch, prepared by Waipa’s chef, changes seasonally and is made with vegetables grown in onsite gardens, organic or locally sourced meat or fish, and mamaki tea with lemongrass and mint.
