Saddle up and explore scenic forest trails at Kualoa Ranch, located in a lush valley on Oahu’s windward coast.

 It is one of the most beautiful locations on the island. It is no wonder that so many Hollywood movies have been filmed here in the past, including Jurassic Park, Along Came Polly, Pearl Harbor, 50 First Dates, Godzilla and Lost.

The horses are very gentle and well-behaved. The 2-hour tour takes you deep into Ka’a’awa Valley, where you’ll see various movie set locations. You’ll also enjoy gorgeous views of lush forests, World War II bunkers, verdant cliff faces and the ocean.
