India “We got up at 2 a.m. so we could drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and see this crater glow like a hot furnace in the night. It was unbelievable. But the light changes fast, and by the time we had a chance to take our own pictures, it was daylight. Pretty awesome to think that smoking pit behind me is just a cauldron of lava ready to go at any time.” — Samantha Brown


Take a moment. Wander from the suggested route. Experience a culture full of welcoming aloha. You won’t need a roadmap to find your most memorable moments. All you have to do is “Let Hawaii Happen.”

Akaka Falls, Big Island
There are some things one has come to expect of Hawaii, such as otherworldly waterfalls, unrivaled beaches and ideal surf conditions, just to name a few. Then, there are the things you discover upon arrival: the genuine friendliness of the people, the fact that there is an active volcano … and that snow and sand can coexist on Hawaii Island! But there are some things that are intrinsic to an authentic Hawaiian experience, which manage to escape even the most well-intentioned itinerary or frequent visitor’s zeitgeist. To discover the true spirit of Hawaii, here are 5 things you must see, do and taste.

Which Hawaiian Island Are You?

Kinga Philipps films in a swimming hole on Oahu

Courtesy of Kinga Philipps Originals host Kinga Philipps is no stranger to Oahu, but for The Trip 2015 she really pushed her limits, both by free diving and spear fishing in the ocean and strapping on a parachute to do 360-degree loops in a glider. Her Hawaiian adventures will be captured in a 5-part web series.

What brought you to Oahu?

I’ve been to Oahu dozens of times, but it’s never the same experience twice, so I keep coming back. It’s relaxing, wild, peaceful, exhilarating — all rolled into one. This time, we came for Travel Channel’s yearly special The Trip to show off some adventures one can have on the island. We teamed up with locals to show us their idea of a good time, from spear-fishing to private hikes to glider rides and, of course, local grindz.

What were your expectations while filming/visiting Oahu?

I’ve learned to leave expectations behind when I travel — even to places I’ve been before. I did expect to have a lot of fun and eat a lot of good food, and that definitely transpired. It’s also a fact that people who are very good at a sport make it look easy, so I knew the spear-fishing and free-diving segment would exceed my level of experience, and I would have to push myself. I’m comfortable in the water and I’ve dabbled in free diving, but when Shaun Harada, my guide, said, “Make sure you take the snorkel out of your mouth when you dive deep, because if you black out, it acts as a funnel for the water into your lungs,” I knew I was in a bit over my head (pun intended). I don’t want to spoil the ending, but clearly I made it, or I wouldn’t be writing this — although I still can’t hear out of my left ear. Totally worth it.


The Trip 2015: Hawaii
Travel Channel’s third annual $100,000 dream getaway will be to Hawaii, a destination unrivaled in natural wonders, foodie experiences and aloha spirit.
