Paniolo Up

Princeville Ranch stands alone as one of the most exclusive and pristine locations for horseback riding and waterfalls in all of Hawaii. We are a 2,500–acre working cattle ranch in the heart of the north shore on the island of Kaua’i. One of the first cattle ranches in all of Hawai’i, Princeville Ranch was established during the reign of Kamehameha III. Steeped in history, it is home to a family owned and operated business that has been providing world class adventures on the ranch for over 40 years.

The ranch is surrounded by the majestic Hanalei mountains with verdant pastures, romantic waterfalls, and miles of private jungle trails. Ride to our 80 foot waterfall or choose a private ride for an advanced and exclusive experience. Our guides are educated in natural horsemanship skills and will share their knowledge of Hawaii’s history, flora, and fauna. All riding levels welcome.

Experience true Paniolo culture with a special touch of island Aloha. Come ride the ranch with us, it’s time to Paniolo Up!
