If you’re idea of a relaxing vacation doesn’t consist of being picked up in the middle of the night for a sunrise tour, then the Haleakala Summit and Lavender Tour is perfect for you. This a complete tour of upcountry Maui and the summit of Haleakala, but at a more “reasonable” hour.

You will journey up the mountain to the highest point of the island. During your leisurely drive, take in the views of impressive Haleakala Crater. From the 10,023 foot summit of the volcano, gaze in the distance to the Big Island, Kahoolawe, Molokini, Lanai, West Maui, and Molokai. As you descend Haleakala, you will stop at the Maui Lavender Company. With view of the ocean far below, your senses will be awakened as you stroll through their fields. In their organic garden, they have 70 lavender varieties, and you’ll learn more about lavender during the exquisite Pacific Rim Cuisine picnic luncheon.

After you enjoy your delicious meal, the tour cruises to Ulupalakua for wine tasting at the Maui Wine. The final stop is in the Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) town of Makawao, and you can explore the Hot Island Glass studio, Viewpoints Gallery (a collection of Maui’s top artists) and other local shops.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Van tours offer a nice advantage over driving around on your own. Many of the most scenic roads on Maui are rather narrow and winding with bridges that are only one lane wide. An experienced tour guide / driver who knows the road will ensure that everyone in your party gets to enjoy the view. Mini-coaches that these companies use sit higher than a regular rental car and offer superior visibility with oversized windows … you’ll see things looking over the top of the guardrail that you would miss if you were in a rental car. These vehicles are superior to a tour done in a bus (for obvious reasons) or a standard 14 passenger van that is difficult to crawl in and out of. Another advantage of the smaller vehicle with great visibility; don’t be surprised if your guide knows your name by the middle of the tour.

If you wan to see Haleakala but the middle of the night pickup is not your style, Temptation Tours also offers a very comprehensive Haleakala Summit and Lavender Garden tour. This one will really envigorate your senses as you spend an entire day at higher elevations of Maui where the air is incredibly crips. This tour includes an elegantly prepared lunch and wine tasting at Tedeschi Winery.

Other great sightseeing tours include Hana Tour & Haleakala Sunrise Tour. If you want more of an adventure, check out the Downhill Bike Tour.
