Amazing! 4.3/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Discover the Big Island's lush jungles, tumbling waterfalls, winding paths, and ancient villages on this horseback adventure. Take the reins and wander through the secluded Waipi'o Valley as a knowledgeable guide highlights the island's wildlife, lush terrain, and rich Hawaiian history.

After you arrive at the Waipi'o on Horseback barn, a vehicle drives you to the valley floor to begin your journey on a beautiful and gentle horse. This "Valley of the Kings," as known in ancient Hawaii, drops nearly 1,000 feet (305 m) into a fresh emerald landscape. There, you trot along hillside trails, across freshwater streams, and through ancient Hawaiian villages.

As you're surrounded by the sweet Hawaiian breeze and vocal exotic birds, see if you can spot wild horses and name some native plants. Listen to the plummeting waterfalls crash into the base of the valley where it meets the ocean.

Your journey continues at a taro farm, where you can see how this Hawaiian plant is traditionally farmed and prepared as a staple food for the community. Learn about ancient Hawaiian mythology, like Pele, the goddess of fire, and hear stories of the ancient Hawaiians who once farmed, hunted, and made lives for themselves in Waipi'o's tropical valley.
