Adventure elopements are so hot right now! And we know why! They're not only intimate and special but they're extra experiential with some element of well, adventure. And there is truly no better place than the Hawaiian Islands for an epic adventure elopement!
The Islands offer every type of landscape from beaches to mountains, from cactus gardens to dry, red-earthed landscapes, and waterfalls.
There are a few important things to bear in mind when planning your ultimate Hawaii adventure elopement
1 - Be a good sport!
Adventure elopements are almost always outdoors and while Hawai'i usually provides for year-round good weather, you are still at the whim of the elements. Extreme heat, torrential down pours and strong trade winds are just a few things to bear in mind. Ultimately, this will be one of the happiest days of your life, so just go with it!!
2 - Be Prepared and Have a Back Up Plan!
Remember what we said about the elements, so be prepared for all conditions - take plenty of water, sunscreen and make sure you malama Hawai'i and take all your trash with you!! and also make sure you have at least 2 locations in mind. For example, if you had in mind to hike to the top of Crouching Lion, the winds could be too severe. Or, if you wanted to do a waterfall, make sure its not illegal to access it, you know if the trail is clear and that you or someone you're with knows where they're going. Always be cautious and tell somewhere where you're going. Definitely pick a great planner or photographer who knows the best locations and these important planning details.
3 - Have Fun!
Most importantly, have a good old time!
