Princeville Ranch - Ride N' Glide
Aloha! Welcome to Ride N’ Glide Princeville Ranch in Kauai, Hawaii. At Princeville Ranch you will experience the excitement of two different adventures in one—Horseback Riding and Zip Lining on a private ranch! First, you will ride a gentle Princeville Ranch horse through the gorgeous mountain scenery across the isolated valley. The Princeville Ranch tour guide will explain cowboy and ranch history and point out the Hawaiian flora and fauna as you take pleasure in the peaceful thirty-minute horseback ride. The next portion of the Ride N’ Glide is to secure your horse and get prepared to fly across the sky on three speedy, thrilling Kaui Zip Lines! Step off the edge of the side of the valley and soar like a bird across the tree tops. We save the best for last—the “Big Kahuna,” our most spine-tingling zip line ride that is seven hundred feet long! After the most exhilarating experience you have had on Kaui, you will relax with the return thirty-minute ride to the ranch. If you choose not to ride horseback, we have a Kauai Beginner Level Zip Line Tour that you will walk to the zip location. Buzz Hawaii.com will save you a bundle with this Kauai Zip Lining Hawaii Tour. The three zip lines on the Kauai Zip Line Tour are 410 feet, 560 feet, and 700 feet of fun and excitement. The Princeville guides are well informed in Kauai’s history, and flora and fauna, CPR and First-Aid certified. Cell phones and first-aid kits are close by at all times. Reserve a Ride N’ Glide Princeville Ranch with Buzz Hawaii and save a bundle of money.
