Catch an unforgettable glimpse of “Old Hawaii” as you journey by horseback through the beautiful, mystic wonderland of the Big Island’s ancient Waipio Valley, an enchanting place that literally means "land of curving water.” An ethereal sense of Waipio's rich historic past emanates from this valley, completely still, except for the pounding of waves on the nearby black sand beach and working farmers carefully tending their taro patches. Well-trained horses are specifically matched with your riding ability and comfort level. This valley is one of the most beautiful spots on the Big Island!

What is the history of the stables?
  • Sherri Hannum, a long time resident of Waipio, began Na'alapa Stables nearly twenty years ago, an outgrowth of her fascination with Waipio's rich history and beauty and her passion for horses. The moniker's origin "Na'alapa" is the name of a stunning waterfall on the far side of the valley. Today, Waipio's Na'alapa Stables is a favorite island activity for those who want to get off the beaten track while visiting the Big Island.
Can I still ride if I am 5 lbs (2.3 kg) over the weight limit?
  • Weight limits are strict to protect the health of the horse. Please consider booking the Waipio ATV activity if you are overweight for horseback.

This experience is certainly off the beaten pack and is an amazing way to explore the nearly inaccessible Waipio Valley. We met at the meeting point and we were driven down into the valley down one ...more
