New Trip: Kauai: The Garden Isle 

Hawaii is too good for only a single Backcountry Journeys Photography Tour Itinerary, don’t you think? 

We agree. So, today we announce a brand new Landscape Photo Tour out of Hawaii, this one taking us to the island of Kauai! 

Book your trip today, and thank us later, as this fabulous trip is going to be simply incredible.

Kauai is known as ‘The Garden Isle,’ and is rightfully considered one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is, in fact, the oldest of the main Hawaii Islands. It is also the least populated of the major Hawaiian islands, which for us sounds fantastic! 

A magical place of diversity, the island is scattered with beautiful beaches. It is also home to the iconic Na Pali Coast and the Waimea Canyon – two of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Hawaii. 

It’s pretty simple when you add it all up: Kauai is a photographer’s paradise with seascapes, landscapes, waterfalls, and more. Combine all that with amazing local food and incredible Hawaiian lodging and you’ve got a trip of a lifetime! 

Join Backcountry Journeys in Hawaii for our Kauai: The Garden Isle lodge-based photography tour, and take home a collection of images and memories that will last a lifetime (and make your friends jealous, too). 

Note: Hawaii is a far off place, why not maximize your time in paradise by adding our Big Island of Hawaii tour to your plans? On this itinerary, volcanos, whales, turtles, and more will take center stage, creating a full and well-rounded Hawaiian portfolio.
