About the Tour

A long, ascending road through horse farms and towering eucalyptus groves takes you to Haleakala National Park. You’ll visit the spectacular volcanic crater, Mt. Haleakala, which in Hawaiian means “House of the Rising Sun.” At an altitude of 10,023 feet are literally above the clouds. You’ll even be able to see Mauna Loa volcano on the neighboring Big Island. (Climbing to this altitude is generally not recommended for people with heart conditions or those prone to altitude sickness. A 24-hour wait period is also recommended for anyone that has recently been scuba diving). Guests interested in watching the sunrise from the summit may wish to consider our Haleakala Sunrise Tour.

Then it’s on to Iao Valley, where King Kamehameha defeated Maui’s army, and the Iao Needle, a massive, tree-covered lava formation that towers above the valley floor at a height of 2,250 feet. You’ll also visit Lahaina Town, a 19th century whaling village. Lahaina is also known for its popular restaurants, boutiques, and galleries, which you’ll have plenty of time to explore when you stop here for lunch.
