Description:

Tour the 105-acre working Kilohana plantation with a train ride that recalls the days of the Hawaiian kings. Ride past lush farmland, see the wide variety of fruits and vegetables grown amid the breathtaking scenery, and even make a stop to visit with the animals on the farm.

Check in with the stationmaster at the authentic train depot and spend a few minutes browsing the handmade crafts at the nearby store before the train rolls into the station. The railway cars are a reproduction of models used during the time of Kalākaua, Hawaii's last reigning king. Step aboard and grab a seat among the hand-finished wood interior and get ready for the ride.

A local guide narrates the trip and helps you spot the many varieties of tropical plants to be found along the railroad. Learn about the history of Kauai's early plantation days as you tour the 105-acre (42-ha) working plantation, home to more than 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables, including papayas, bananas, and mangoes.

A stop midway through the ride gives you the opportunity to disembark and meet the farm animals. Feed the pigs, goats, sheep, cattle, and horses that call this charming area home before the journey continues through the jungle vistas and back to the railroad station.
