Come mauka (mountain side) and adventure at Princeville Ranch!
Princeville Ranch is a 2,500-acre authentic cattle ranch, family owned and operated since 1978. Princeville Ranch offers a variety of eco tours including zipline tours, horseback, off-road, hiking, and kayaking tours. They have several waterfalls on the ranch and the combo tours are perfect for the whole family. The guides are fun and knowledgable and will show you an amazingly great time!
The most popular tour is an exciting Kauai zipline adventure on the pristine private lands of Princeville Ranch! The course is a thrilling combination of nine picturesque zip lines and a suspension bridge spanning a waterfall. Imagine walking off the edge of a lush valley, flying over tree tops across to the other side, soaking in the gorgeous mountain views along the way. The final zipline — called “King Kong” — is an adventure all on its own! First you walk up a ramp to a 26-foot high tower. Next you zip 1,200 feet, racing your partner side-by-side or maybe holding hands! The tour includes an hour at a fifteen-foot deep, hidden swimming hole, fed by a small waterfall. Here you’ll enjoy a delicious picnic, swimming, jumping and floating on inner tubes. Hiking is rated moderate and is just over one mile.
The waterfall horseback ride is the longest running tour and is more than a trail ride – it’s an adventure! Imagine being surrounded by breathtaking views and then hiking a short, steep trail through a rainforest to an 80-foot waterfall. It’s an exhilarating experience, for both first-time and advanced riders!
Check out the "Ride n Glide," a unique adventure combining a ride with the thrill of three fun, fast ziplines!
