A Leisurely Excursion - On A Trail Less Traveled

Comfortably astride one of our seasoned horses, you'll venture into the isolated interior of Kalihiwai and Kamookoa Ridge for breathtaking close-up views of the Makaleha mountain range. Meander through this lush valley with its tranquil winding waterways lined with exotic tropical flora. Keep your camera at the ready as there is a photo opportunity at every turn of the trail. Upon your return to the stable, refresh with cool island fruit juice. After a great ride, don't forget to tip your guide and give your faithful mount a kiss goodbye. They'll both appreciate it.

A Unique Corner of Paradise

Silver Falls Ranch riding trails are the most lush and beautiful on the island. All rides begin with a riding orientation and safety briefing, then your small group, riding at a comfortable walking pace will explore this 300 acre private estate in Kalihiwai's lush interior valley. Tours pass through an eighty-acre tropical garden where over 150 different species of palm trees thrive. Wind your way along the peaceful Pohakuhonu stream lined with ferns and hibiscus blossoms, or the rushing Pookaele stream that feeds our featured waterfall pool. The ranch presents a multitude of unusual flora including wild orchids. Strawberry and blueberry guavas await sampling when in season. Breathtaking up-close views of the 2,800 foot Makaleha mountain range and its secluded high valley will astonish you. All rides through this magnificent environment leave you with indelible memories of a unique tropical experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the red "Book It" button and you will see live availability. Keep in mind availability changes constantly, so make sure to book in advance!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!

Spectacularly beautiful
My husband and I visited the ranch for our anniversary. We had such a wonderful time talking with our guide Jeff. He was very knowledgeable about the flora and fona and local legends. He was great company to be around. We would definitely go again.
Toller Ritt durch wunderschöne Natur
Ich habe einen 1,5 Std Ausritt gebuchbindert es war toll! Unsere Paniolo Bonnie hat uns sicher geführt und viele interessante Begebenheiten über die Ranch und die Pferde erzählt. Mein Pferd, Modella, war munter und aufmerksam, es war kein langweiliger Ritt, wo alle Pferde stur hintereinander herlaufen, sondern die Pferde waren sorgfältig für unser jeweiliges Reitniveau ausgesucht! Super!
1.5 hour trail ride. Neat with some good views!
My husband and I did the 1.5 hour trail ride through Silver Falls Ranch during our honeymoon. We had a pretty good time! Todd was our guide. He was very patient with the nervous members of our group and very informative throughout our entire ride. Very friendly and very knowledgeable.
A Treat for our Honeymoon. Thanks Susan, Delilah, and Aleka
My wife and I decided on taking a honeymoon ride on a horse, rather than a helicopter. We made an excellent choice. First of all, I am a San Francisco tour guide, and if there were only two people on a tour, the companies I work for would not run them. Silver Falls ran the tour with only my newlywed wife and I. Susan was our local guide and she was awesome. She was real, down to earth, knowledgeable, ... moreand very communicative. She would stop to have us taste some of Kauai's rare berries. She pointed out where Hollywood filmed scenes from all the Jurassic Park movies. After the ride, my wife and I got to spend a good half hour at this private waterfall, where she took pictures of not only us, but the beautiful scenery surrounding us. At the end of the ride, my wife and I had pictures taken of us and our horses, by Susan. We loved riding Delilah and Aleka. As a tour guide, I don't often write reviews, but the comfortability, price, and treatment of everyone at Silver Falls was top notch. Thank you for adding to our adventurous honeymoon in Kauai.
