Guided Horseback Tours are One of Many Maui Activities

Maui is full of fun and excitement, and the good news is, this is true throughout every season of the year. With warm, mild winter seasons and hot, fun-in-the-sun summer seasons, Maui has a lot to offer when it comes time to plan a vacation. One of the most important things after settling on a destination for your vacation is deciding on the activities you want to do while there. For family vacations this is a must, as there isn’t a lot of leeway if you travel with no itinerary.

One of the most beautiful spots on Maui is Lahaina Town, and booking the correct Lahaina hotel should be one of the first things on your to-do list. We highly recommend the Royal Lahaina Resort. With its private beaches and lush amenities, it is one of the best and most welcoming resort and hotel areas on the island.

Next, you’ll want to plan activities. Many come for the Maui water sports or for the surf, and are perfectly happy spending their vacation on the beach. However, other activities such as horseback riding can be a lot of fun, and not something you normally do at home. Several places offer horseback riding tours through the island, with one located right in Lahaina.

Some of our most recommended horseback tours include: Ironwood Ranch, which is on the western side of Maui, Lahaina Stables, which is right in Lahaina Town, the Mendes Ranch and Trail Rides near Haleakala Crater, and Piholo Ranch. Sites like Piholo also offer a BBQ along with their trail ride, so that this whole-day adventure also includes food. Pony Express tours are also an option while vacationing in Maui. These tours also offer a picnic lunch and take you right into Haleakala Crater.

Maui is a great place to take part in adventures you may not normally consider at home. From the right Lahaina hotel to the perfect activities, Maui has a lot to offer any type of traveler, from the single adventurer to the extended family.

Book your next getaway, honeymoon, or vacation at the Royal Lahaina Resort, and be sure to make memories that last a lifetime.
