Kauai Itinerary Hawaii Cover

Your trip to Kauai just got so much better.

The Kauai itinerary isn’t a guidebook, it’s better. It’s a step by step itinerary that takes you to all the best beaches, snorkeling spots, restaurants, and sights. There are 5 excursion days that take you all over the island: from the lush landscape of the north shore to the stunning coastline down south. The guide takes you step by step on a planned out route with a link to Google Maps driving directions so you can just get in your car and go.

You can choose to do one of the excursion days, or all five, depending on how much time you have for your adventure.


I want to thank you for your help in making our vacation a great one.  We appreciate your itinerary and took advantage of your experience and expertise.  We plan to go back soon and look at your other itineraries for guidance.

We bought the Wayfinder Itinerary from The Hawaii Vacation Guide. Highly recommend — super organized daily plans for every part of the island. Even includes google map directions to the best parking spots and what to pack for each day of fun!

Itinerary FAQs

How is this different from a guide book?

A guide book goes in-depth on a certain destination — you read it, research, and then formulate your vacation plan. Our itinerary is different. It starts with a 12 (ish) minute video to help you understand your way around the island, where things are located, and what experiences are available. Then we map our excursion days. These days take you on a carefully planned out route to one part of the island, making stops for meals, beaches, and places of interest. Each excursion day has an overview page with links to Google maps directions, what to pack for the day out, and any reservations that need to be made it advance.

This itinerary is meant to save you time while trip planning and help you make the most of your limited vacation time.

Should I buy this now or closer to my trip?

Unlike a guide book we publish regular updates. With so many things changing, we want to give you the most up to date information to have a great trip. These itineraries are reviewed and updated quarterly. Once you purchase an itinerary, you’ll have access to all updates for the next 11 months. 

Is this a physical itinerary? Digital? How do I use it?

This is a digital product. Minutes after purchasing, a link to download the itinerary will be sent to your email. You can print it, but we suggest downloading it to your computer and your phone. There are a number of hyperlinks in the itinerary to link you to directions, restaurant websites, and activity operators. So it’s much easier to use it digitally!

While you’re in Hawaii, the best way to use it is to have it downloaded on your phone. It’ll make it easy to follow excursion days. And on days when you’re not following an excursion day, you can use the “Quick Hits” section to quickly find the best beaches and restaurants near you.

Do you offer custom trip planning?

Unfortunately, we do not. But we. do have a full website (here!) and youtube channel dedicated to giving you the best information possible.
