We invite you to join us as we explore the botanical wonders of Hawaii, with leadership by two excellent naturalists.

Discover Botanical Hawaii Map

Hawaii is one of the most botanically rich locations in the world! It has more than 25,000 species of plants, nearly half of which exist only in the Hawaiian Islands.

The state is also famous for its subtropical weather, mild ocean breezes, Polynesian culture, and diverse bird and marine species.

The Hawaiian archipelago has existed for tens of millions of years and was colonized by wind blown seeds and insects, migrating birds, and floating vegetation washing on shore. From these random beginnings the natural world evolved. It is beautiful, unique, and a true paradise.

Hawaii offers the inquisitive traveler many opportunities to
see native flora and fauna in Discover Botanical HAWAII forest reserves and in the national and state parks. Botanic gardens, arboreta, and estates focus in part on preserving native species and, in some cases, endangered species propagation. The gardens also are wonderful places to see tropical trees, bushes, and flowers from all over the world.

On this botanical adventure, we will explore the finest botanical gardens on the island of Oahu, the Big Island of Hawaii, and the Garden Island of Kauai, including the geological marvels and native Hawaiian trees, plants, and birds at Hawaii Volcano National Park. Majestic Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park will be a delight. From the brilliant red i’iwi bird to the Koa and Kukui trees, Hawaii is filled with natural wonders for you to discover!

Come join us for lifelong memories of these splendid islands!
