See Hawaii in the Best Light
At sunset, Oahu’s North Shore becomes magical, with colorful skies and billowing clouds that make you feel like you’ve stepped into a painting. This special time turns into an unforgettable experience when you witness it from horseback, traveling through quiet forests and beautiful mountain trails. That’s not to mention that at sunset everything cools down and all the birds start to sing. Trust us, it’s the best time of day to ride.

On the trail, you might see grazing cattle, native fruit trees, and even wild pigs. You’ll also have sneak peeks of the ocean below, leading up to the best part—a thrilling panoramic view from our scenic lookout. You’ll remember it for years to come.

Our whole family took this ride out to see the sunset on the North Shore and it was one of the most wonderful things we’ve ever done together. Worth every penny to see the sunset on horseback like a cowboy!

Seeing the sunset on horseback will honestly make you feel like you’re a cowboy in the old west. Me and my family had a beautiful experience here and we got some great photos of us all up on horseback. This is one of the best family tours in Hawaii!
