Kaua‘i and paradise are often used in the same sentence, and for good reason. Everywhere you look, staggering beauty abounds: Verdant rain forests. Spectacular waterfalls and streams. Miles of breathtaking coastlines and beaches. Flowers of every color and shape. Amazing fruits, vegetables and seafood. And some of the friendliest people on earth. 

Our upcoming book, The Healthy Trekking Guide to Kaua‘i will feature more than just the best places, adventures, dining, healthy activities and more for visitors to the Garden Island. Throughout its pages, you'll see photos like those shown below by Brian Teeter.
