Kipu Ranch encompasses 3000 acres to explore, and their ATV and four-wheel drive tours take full advantage of every inch. The Ranch, Mountain and Waterfall Adventures are all fun, providing excitement for small groups and families alike. Children under the age of 15 will need to ride in the “mule”, but kids 16 and over will love roaming the lush rainforests, hidden ravines, and miles upon miles of trails that the ranch has to offer. The local guides will provide instruction on the proper use of the vehicles, helmets and other necessary safety equipment. Guests should wear long pants and, closed-toe shoes, and bring along sunscreen and bug repellent. This tour is a great way to see the vibrant Kauai countryside.
