Maui Horseback Riding Details
Take a tour the old fashioned way – on horseback! Saddle up and explore the countryside, traversing the dormant volcano Haleakala and through pastures and ancient lava flows as you watch cattle graze and take in scenic ocean views. Plus get a view of the Big Island and Kahoolawe. If you plan to take the 2-hour tour, you’ll even get to see Molokini Crater!
All of these tours are private, so the group you head out with is limited to just your party and your guide. Triple L Ranch offers multiple duration and tour types depending on how long you want to spend out and what you’re looking for in a tour.
Their most popular tour is the 2-hour Open Range tour, which you can book through any of the buttons or the calendar. This gives you the most time to relax and take in the scenery, allowing you to go a little further than their 1-hour and 1.5-hour tours, though these are still a great option if you’re more limited on time.
If you want to step it up a notch, opt for their 3-hour All-Inclusive Adventure Lunch Tour. You’ll get everything that is provided in the 2-hour tour plus a full lunch of Triple L Ranch Burgers, lots of savory treats, fresh fruit, and delicious desserts. Your lunch is served picnic style over a lookout, and they are happy to accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions whenever possible.
