Pi‘iholo RanchSet on the rain forest’s edge, this stable and riding academy offers horseback riding tours of Upcountry Maui. During private excursions, guests cross wide-open ranges with breathtaking views of the Pacific, learning about the area and its history as they go. The family-run ranch is staffed by friendly, informative guides who cater to all abilities, so prior riding experience isn’t necessary. After your ride, tour the ranch’s preserve and nursery for a chance to glimpse Hawaii’s majestic state bird, the endangered nene (goose), or get your adrenaline pumping on the longest side-by-side zip line in Maui.
