My husband and I did this activity on our honeymoon trip to Oahu. The staff was very knowledgable about the area and they were SUPER friendly! One even picked fresh off the tree guava and papaya for us to try. It was a trail ride and the horses are well trained, so they tend to go on auto-pilot which would be great for someone hesitant to ride. The views are AMAZING! I must have taken about a hundred pictures in the two hour ride. We would DEFINITELY do this again! Recommend sneakers, jeans and t-shirt. No hats...they blow off in the ocean breeze and sunscreen!
An exciting ride through Oahu's oldest and largest cattle ranch, deep into the valley where "Jurassic Park" and other feature films were made! Explore the wondrous beauty of Kaaawa Valley mounted on your own steed!
Expert Kualoa Ranch guides will escort you up the mountainside on trails that pass World War II bunkers and then down into a lush, green valley surrounded by the dramatic Kualoa Mountains.
Riders are cautioned to follow instructions from the tour leader about safe speeds and staying on the trails. Ride at your own risk.
