The Wailea Horseback Adventures shares with you a hidden paradise adventure on horseback above the beautiful Umauma falls on the Big Island of Hawaii. They offer the Waterfall Horseback Ride twice a day. This is the 2.5 hour morning ride checking you in at 9:00am. Enjoy tropical paradise landscapes while knowledgable and friendly guides share the history of this special location, info about it's culture in Hawaii and the surrounding native plants. Ride through open ranged pastures, take photo-op stops at amazing waterfalls. Then, it will be time to tie up the horses and head down to the waterfall for about 45 minutes for a relaxing break lunch/snack/drink, and swim. Afterwards, once it's all packed up, you'll get back on the horses and in your saddle to continue the adventure and journey on as you head back down to the barn.

On this tour, you'll ride on land once owned by Hawaiian royalty. Your time is spent riding beautiful horses,  taking in amazing views and seeing secluded waterfalls only accessible through booking a tour. There is something magical about time at the waterfall. Enjoy your picnic lunch as you listen to the water falling and relax to the peaceful sound of the stream flowing. Here you also have time to take a dip in the cool refreshing waters of the waterfall.

Knowledgeable and friendly guides take you back to a time past and share with you the history of Wailea. On this beautiful location between Hakalau and Honomu is a hidden paradise with tropical landscape, green pastures and fresh water that comes from Mt. Mauna Kea. Feel the blessings as the wonder of the water flows down to us and leaves us in awe. These waters that creates such beautiful waterfalls have been flowing for hundreds of years . Listen as your local guides share about the history of the sugar plantation and the kalo farms that sustain Hawaii. Witness how the waters of Wailea and Umauma were so important in agriculture in those times, and still are, and how it still flows naturally today.

We went on our horseback ride and had a great time. Check in was easy and the guides were great. We even had a beautiful sunshiney day! Perfect. Mahalo!
Now it's back to work for me....................


Susan Bauer
It was a great trip. It is absolutely beautiful. You will get some riding instruction, so it's okay if you've never ridden a horse at all, as some people in the group had never ridden, and it is good for more experienced riders as well. The trip is great, the waterfalls are gorgeous, the guide was fantastic. Bring water shoes because the rocks are slippery!! And make sure you go swimming!!

Diana Estey
Can't go wrong with waterfalls and the Eucalyptus tree forest was amazing. Never seen a forest planted in rows before. The day I went it was cold and rainy but we still had a great time and a great ride. My guides both grew up in the valley and were able to give us a local's perspective. As an experienced rider I wasn't bored out of my mind. My horse, Foxy, was sassy and made the trip interesting. Loved it.

Matt Williams
My wife and I went on the 5 hour horseback ride on Feb 22nd and this was the best part of our 10 days on the island. To see the valley from this perspective is hard to beat and the guides were super knowledgeable and great to have a conversation with. The horses were well trained and no issues or safety concerns!!

Steve Ahrens
This was an amazing ride to the waterfall. My horse was perfect for me as an intermediate rider. My wife and I had a great time!

Judy Bealing
This Was the highlight of my vacation in Hawaii. Our Guide Jamie was fantastic with his local knowledge of the island and plants etc. The views on this ride was the best on the island. The swim at this waterfall was amazing and refreshing . The horses were very gentle and very easy to handle and ride . This was the best place to go on the whole island. Im so thankful I had the opportunity to do this ride on my vacation . Thank you again Jamie from Judy and Kylee.

Susan Henning
Overall the adventure was good.  There were 11 in our group, the majority
non English speaking, so the important directions were not understood, causing a
ruckus with the horses not getting into single file.  The guides were great
and knowledgeable about the history of the area, but lots of time was spent
getting 11 horses ready.  Wish we had spent more time at the falls.
 The horses were well cared for and treated kindly.  I would recommend
a smaller group, with interpreters if necessary.
