Waipio ATV tour
Tucked away about 13 miles from Hilo (on the way to Volcanoes National Park) is a privately owned cattle ranch nestled between snow capped mountains and a smoking Volcano. This special location offers panoramic views of the Puna Coastline, Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa mountains, and the Pu’u O’o vent. Ohia trees thick with yellow, pink, and salmon colored Lehua blossoms sway gently in the mountain breezes. Ducks swim happily in rock wall ponds while cows, horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, and pet pigs frolic amidst rolling pastures.
Pa’ani Ranch offers a little something for all age groups and interests, from Keiki (children) to Kupuna (grandparents), for the adventurous to the more laid back individual. Come and experience the Aloha, the beauty, and the fun, on our 220-acre ranch. We’re open daily & easy to find off of Hwy 11 & North Kulani road.
ATV Experience tour inclusive of seven all terrain vehicles. Ride through the 220 acre ranch on a variety of terrains, up and down hills, through rolling pastures, over the ocaasional puddle, and on gravel roads previously used by Puna Sugar during the Sugar industry era.
