Adventure Tourism in Princeville, Hawaii

The north shore of Kauai, an island the Hawaiian Islands chain, boasts a small resort destination known as Princeville. This area has always had a romantic ambiance; the name itself comes from a visit of Prince Albert Kamehameha to the island in 1860. Composed of wet tropical lowlands, the area around Princeville has been put to use in various eras as a coffee plantation, a sugarcane plantation, and a cattle ranch. Today, it also features a tropical golf course and a selection of holiday homes in Princeville.

Vacationers in Princeville can choose from a wide range of activities, many of them run by the outdoor adventures company Princeville Ranch Adventures. From a hike through the dense tropical jungle that lies just a short distance from the shore to a "zip 'n dip expedition" where you are suspended from cables and glide high above the jungle, this company caters to tourists looking for something more than the standard surf-and-sea Hawaiian getaway.

The company offers a variety of tourist adventures that involve horseback rides, including private riding lessons and tours as well as the "Waterfall Picnic Ride, which includes a catered meal once you reach your destination of a waterfall complete with swimming hole. Princeville still features a working cattle ranch, and visitors who take part in any of the Princeville Ranch adventures have the opportunity to witness some of the operations firsthand. A number of different guided hikes through the rain forest are also available from the company.
