Lava fields, secret waterfalls, huge surf, a unique mix of terrains and even an active volcano, Hawaii is made for an adventure lover like me.
Earlier this year I travelled to Hawaii. It was my first trip to the islands, and as I explained in my post 14 Amazing Things To Do On Your First Holiday In Hawaii, it wasn’t what I expected. While I knew it would tick every box on the dream honeymoon checklist (paradise beaches, posh hotels, warm sunshine) I didn’t know whether it’d have much substance to it. I was pleasantly surprised… and then some!
If, like me, you get bored of lying on a beach after 20 minutes, and prefer to come back with a series of great stories, rather than a great tan, then Hawaii is for you!
I visited with travel production company Travelspective to make some amazing videos for tour company GoBe. We spent days on some of the best tours the islands have to offer, with the team following my journey as I learned what makes Hawaii unique. We flew drones over waterfalls, hiked to mind-blowing viewpoints and swam in waterfalls! Plus, we found time to sample the cuisine that makes Hawaii different from the rest of America.
So finally I can show you the incredible videos this talented team has created. Once you’ve checked them out, be sure to scroll down to find out a few of my favourite adventures from the trip.

I guess the thing that makes Hawaii SO special is the mix of terrains. While on the island of Oahu, one minute I’d be looking out of the window at the big city of Honolulu with its skyscraper hotels lining Waikiki Beach, the next moment I’d be on a cliff edge taking in the rugged coastline, then inland there were views that reminded me of Jurassic Park. It’s so diverse and unlike anywhere I’d been before. Again on The Big Island, I trekked through forests, discovered waterfalls, was mesmerised by the rich black lava fields and active volcano. It’s a photogenic place, and not just because it’s beautiful, but because some of the landscapes I’d never seen before.
