Tour Times

Join us on our most popular horseback adventure that we’ve been offering since 1978! Ride through our 2,500 acre working cattle ranch and soak up the breathtaking views of the Makaleha mountain range, as seen in the Jurassic Park movies.

Tie up your horse and take a short steep hike down to our private 80 foot Kalihiwai Waterfall. Jump in, cool off, explore the falls as we prepare a delicious picnic-style lunch. It’s all yours for an hour!

Your hike back will take you through a lush rainforest, traversing streams and climbing up a 10 foot rock wall.

A leisurely ride back on your gentle horse rounds out the perfect Hawaiian horseback adventure. In contrast to the usual nose-to-tail experience, we encourage you to spread out and enjoy the open space on our historic cattle ranch.

Our guides are educated in natural horsemanship skills and will also share their knowledge of Hawaii’s history, flora, and fauna. All riding levels welcome. Join us on our north shore Kaua’i ranch!
