Waipio Valley PM Ride - Na'alapa Stables
Riders travel in a four-wheel drive van into historic Waipi'o Valley, ancient Hawaii's Valley of the Kings. Then, we will mount up on our horses and delve deeper into the valley's interior. The horseback trail ride takes a leisurely pace along the valley floor and lasts for about 1.5 hours. Guides narrate as you meander through lush jungle trails and navigate through streams and rivers. You'll see dramatic 1,200 foot waterfalls, taro patches, lotus ponds, wild horses and exotic plants and birds all along this adventure.
