Located on a remote peninsula on Molokai’s northern coast, the settlement at Kalaupapa is both a stunningly beautiful destination and a tribute to the power of the human spirit to triumph over adversity. Kalaupapa is the site where an estimated 8,000 patients with leprosy (now known as Hansen’s Disease) were banished between 1866 and 1949, and where the Belgian priest Father Damien (now Saint Damien) ministered to many of them. During the tour, guides share inspiring stories about the residents of Kalaupapa. Stops on the tour include the graves of Saint Damien, Saint Marianne Cope, and the church he built, St. Philomena.
