About The Kalaupapa Guided Mule Tour
We check in at 8am to prepare for our mule match ups preparing for a scenic high adventure ride down the world famous Kalaupapa Trail. Upon arrival at the park, our patrons are treated to a history tour of the National Historical Park. It's a moving story of those who were sent there with the Hansen's Disease as well as those who went to service, including Father Damien of Belgium. (Now Saint Damien)
Full Description
The Kalaupapa Guided Mule Tour is run by Kalaupapa Rare Adventure and guide guests down the Kalaupapa Trail. If you've got the time and want to visit Kalaupapa Village then this is going to be a very unique experience for you and an adventure to remember.

If you go by mule, the price is $199. If you prefer to hike it's $69. If you want to hike in and fly out you'll pay $159. Or, if you prefer to both fly in and fly out the cost is $249.

The hike will take you a couple hours at most for the average person. It's a spectacular view descending, but remember - there is that hike back up which can be a bit grueling and why they offer an option to fly out! But for the opportunity to see this sad yet fascinating part of Molokai's history is worth it.

The Mule Tour to Kalaupapa was an experience of a lifetime. We were lucky not to have to cancel as the ride down can be tricky if it rains or is windy. The mules are so people friendly.

The tour guides are so friendly and patient as our group had a few who needed extra attention. We will have no hesitation to do this tour again or to recommend it to others but do know it is hard on the bottom and back.
