Ride N’ Glide

RIDE N’ GLIDE

Imagine the thrill of Kauai zip lines combined with a beautiful ride on gentle horses—all on a north shore Kauai ranch! After brief horsemanship instructions, you’ll head out to enjoy stunning mountain and ocean scenery. In contrast to the usual nose-to-tail experience, you’ll ride (walking only) across open pastures. Your guide will share ranch and cowboy history, describing the flora and fauna while you enjoy the relaxing ride.

Next, tie up your horse, and get ready to glide like a bird on 3 fun, fast ziplines! You’ll step off the edge of a valley and soar over tree tops to the other side. Your final zipline is called “Big Kahuna,” because at 700 feet long, it’s a big thrill!

This unique zipline adventure wraps up with another peaceful horseback ride, allowing incredible memories and vistas time to sink in.
