With Princeville Ranch Adventures, located on a 2,500-acre working cattle ranch, you can go horseback riding, zip lining, kayaking and hiking. Their Ride ‘N Glide, geared to ages 12 and older, combines a scenic horseback ride followed by the adrenaline thrills of zooming along three zip lines.
Families with kids at least 8 years old should try the Waterfall Picnic Ride. The Waterfall Picnic Horseback Tour is ideal for horseback riding lovers. It takes you on an easy ride across terrain and then on a short hike to a waterfall where you’ll have a swim and lunch. The ride lasts about 3.5 hours and is a wonderful way to spend a morning in Kauai.
If you have younger children, consider signing them up for the Kids’ Adventure Center. Ages 4-11 go on pony rides, mini-hikes and listen to Hawaiian stories while you and your older children sample the ranch’s other activities. It’s best to reserve the Kids’ Adventure Center and other activities before you leave home.
