Guests who book the tour will fly from Kahului up the north side of Haleakalā to Hāna Town and view East Maui waterfalls before landing at Piʻiholo Ranch, tucked 2,000 feet up on the slopes of Haleakalā. There will be complimentary pastries and coffee at the Baldwin family cabins before embarking on a two-hour horseback ride through lush green pastures and fragrant eucalyptus forests, experiencing both ocean and mountain views.

“Partnering with Piʻiholo Ranch Maui allows us to offer our guests a unique air and land adventure,” said President of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, Gregg Lundberg. “The excitement of a helicopter tour combined with a peaceful horseback ride makes this the perfect tour for those who want to experience the beauty of Maui from different vantage points.”

The Heli Ranch package includes roundtrip SUV limo transportation from guest’s hotel to the Blue Hawaiian heliport in Kahului and from Piʻiholo Ranch to guest’s hotel.


The packages begin at $3,355 and are available for two, four and six-person experiences.

Blue Hawaiian offers custom itineraries upon request, group bookings and special occasions can be accommodated with advanced notice.
