Join food and travel expert, Aida Mollenkamp, and the team behind Salt & Wind on a small, highly curated food-focused 5-day trip to Oahu, Hawaii! 


We believe everyday should have an air of vacay, whether you’re on the road or in your kitchen, and aim to help you live an inspired life. We launched Salt & Wind Travel because we believe travel is way more fun when you do it with fellow food travel lovers and who better than you!?! 

Each Salt & Wind trip is highly researched and curated with Team Salt & Wind hand-picking each excursion and travel partner. We want to show you all that we love about a place and introduce you to our local friends so you get an insider's view into the region. Here's a few reasons people love traveling with us: 

  • Unique Experiences: Most of the experiences in our itineraries are one-of-a-kind and only accessible with Salt & Wind
  • Photographer: Each trip has a group photographer providing attendees with 10+ images daily so you can concentrate on the trip and not on your camera.
  • Concierge: There is a concierge on hand to help you with anything from extra activities to health issues 24/7
  • Expert Hosts: Team Salt & Wind has deep knowledge about each area we travel and partners with local experts.
  • Planned Itinerary: Our itineraries are planned so that each day has anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of activity. 
  • Free Time: That said we always offer some optional activities if you want to do even more and we always squeeze in some downtime so you can relax.  


Why Oahu?

Oahu is an island that's so often just a layover spot for travelers heading to other Hawaiian islands but we love spending more time there. The contrast of bustling Honolulu filled with creatives, local food, and amazing cocktails and the big waves and chill vibes of the North Shore make it one of our favorite places around. 

Trip Overview

We L-O-V-E Oahu and tbh, taking you guys there is like taking you home to meet our clan, where the chefs, lei makers, distillers, and boutique owners are all family.  What that means for you? The inside track to the most populous, but, in our book, most underappreciated of the Hawaiian islands.  It'll be a mix of town and country as we clock in a few days in iconic Waikiki then head to the famed North Shore for some beach time. Join our 4-night, 5-day long weekender filled with a craft rum tour, a cocktail-making class, a shopping crawl with drinks and bites to lead the way, and a waterfall (or two!)

Required Trip Insurance

Please note that trip insurance is required to join us on a Salt & Wind trip. FYI most major credit cards (such as American Express, CHASE Sapphire, and Capital One) offer complimentary insurance when you purchase using their card.

Room Options

Double Occupancy

Double occupancy pricing is the price for (1) person to stay in a shared (i.e. double) room. In other words, each person staying in that room will pay the posted double occupancy rate. If you're a couple or friends traveling together, please know that you'll each pay the double occupancy rate. 

Single Occupancy

Need some alone time? We hear you. That's why we offer single occupancy rooms. The single occupancy rate is what you will pay to have the room all to yourself. 


If you do not have a travel partner, you can purchase single occupancy room and have it all to yourself! We do not pair up trip attendees because we find there is not enough privacy in the rooms to allow strangers to room together.
