MAUI VOLCANO SUNRISE TOUR
Greet the most beautiful sunrise on earth in Haleakalā National Park, where you will learn how the summit area animals, plants, and rocks all developed a special meaning and purpose.
The tour begins with a hotel/condo pickup. Our first stop is a light breakfast. From there, we will start the 30-mile journey up the mountain. We will arrive in the park before sunrise, where your guide will provide you with historical information about the volcano, teaching about Hawaiian culture and tips for staying safe and warm. After sunrise, we’ll journey down the volcano to an Island-style hot buffet breakfast. There will be brief stops along the way to savor the stunning bi-coastal morning views.
Haleakala Sunrise Maui Tour Features
Haleakala National Park
This scenic national park is called the “house of the sun.” The Haleakala Crater is a natural phenomenon and is visible from just about any point on the island of Maui. Towering at just over 10,000ʻ above the beach, the road we travel in the dark hours of the early morning is one of the steepest, shortest roads to such a height in the entire world.
Stargazing & Pre-Dawn Colors
We reach the summit before sunrise to give you time to enjoy the stars. The summit of Haleakala is one of the most amazing star-gazing spots in the world. Already home to many of the world's most accurate telescopes. Just before dawn, the beautiful colors of morning start to appear throughout the sky and in the valley, 1800ʻ below you. Have your cameras ready.
Sunrise at the Summit & Park Tour
Starting your day at the top of a mountain with the first rays of sun hitting you is probably one of the most memorable experiences you will have on your Maui vacation. Wrapped in a warm hooded blanket (provided by your guide), you stand atop of an 1800ʻ cliff, above a valley filled with volcanic craters and flows is simply magic.
Afterward, your tour guide makes a number of stops going down the mountain at Kalahaku overlook, Park Headquarters, and in Upcountry Maui.
Hot Breakfast After Sunrise
This tour takes you to a wonderful breakfast at either the Kula Lodge or the Maui Tropical Plantation. We continue the tour after breakfast as we return to your hotel or condo.
