Volcano Tours On The Island Of Maui
Explore The Volcanoes Of Maui. Visit Iao Valley & Haleakala
Maui is an hour glass shaped island with two distinct volcanoes. Haleakala Volcano rises 10,000 ft above sea level and has a spectacular crater at the summit. Sunrises here are world class and one of the most popular of all Maui activities. The west Maui mountains are also the remnants of an extinct volcano who’s peaks house the second wettest spot in the world! All of that water has carved deep valleys into the mountain including the ancient and sacred Iao Valley. Explore one or both of these volcanoes with certified eco tourism guides and learn about the unique geology and cultural significants of these sacred volcanoes!
Haleakala dominates the Maui landscape making up more than ⅔ of the island and reaching up to 10,023 feet above the beaches. The road to the top is the shortest road to that height in the world, making for some very steep and adventurous sections. Leave the driving to the professionals and take a guided group tour to visit Haleakala National Park at sunrise, during the day, or for sunset. All great options to experience the wildlife and plants that live in one of the quietest parks in the world.
Much of Maui’s deep valleys and volcanic slopes can only be seen from the air. Experience the thrill of seeing lush valleys, towering waterfalls, colorful volcanic peaks and miles of beaches and bays from these state of the art aircraft! Bring your camera with the widest lens possible as these views are expansive as well as breathtakingly beautiful. Videos of your flight are also available when you return. It’s the most complete way to see this incredible island!
Combination tours up to the volcano are extremely popular and should be booked well in advance of your trip to Maui. The combinations can include hiking, zip-lining, guided or self-guided downhill bike rides, and more in combination with a sightseeing tour to the volcano. Head to the summit of Haleakala to start your Maui adventure experience. We can even create custom combination excursions with a helicopter ride too! Ask us.
Ascend from the 10,000 summit of Haleakala into the barren rust colored cinder landscape with a certified guide. Some hikes to overlooks are just a few miles long while others involve hiking miles into the crater to spend the night in cabins, but all are full of spectacular vistas and plant life found nowhere else on earth! It’s a unique way to experience the interior of this stunning volcanic valley in one of Hawaii’s premier National Parks!
