Start your day with an unforgettable Haleakala Sunrise Tour! In a custom cruiser, you can enjoy a safe and comfortable ride up the mountain. On the top of Haleakala National Park bask in the light of a new day. Their interpretive on-board experience features a mobile APP and videos that their guides use to provide a high quality tour. Along with English, this is offered in many other languages. Visitors have been ascending Haleakala for nearly 150 years in order to experience the legendary feats of the demi-god Maui. The summit area is considered sacred by Hawaiians, and is known as wao akua, or “realm of the gods.”
After your hotel or condo pickup, the first stop is in Central Maui for a quick restroom and coffee stop. Then you begin the 30 mile drive up the mountain. You arrive at the summit well ahead of sunrise, and everything is taken care of including extra blankets to keep you warm. As you admire the pre-dawn sky, the guides teach you about celestial navigation and prepare you for the sunrise experience. They give you historical information about Haleakala, and you will follow Hawaiian chant protocol by announcing yourselves before venturing further.
Other stops include Haleakala Headquarters Visitor Center, Haleakala Summit Area and Visitor Center, Kalahaku Overlook, Haleakala Ranch Overlook, Makawao and Paia. After sunrise, venture back down the mountain to enjoy a delicious and authentic sit down hot breakfast, which includes vegetarian and gluten free options. On your way through gorgeous Upcountry Maui, you will take a brief stop to smell the flowers and the fresh morning scents.
The guides/drivers are professionally trained, knowledgeable, safe, and fun. You will have stunning photo opportunities including sunrise, cultural, religious and biological points of interest (flora and fauna). The custom cruisers have giant panoramic viewing windows, elevated seats, air conditioned, reclining captain’s chiars, and extra leg room. The Haleakala Sunrise Tours use eco-friendly methods wherever possible including environmentally friendly cleaning supplies, recycle all drink containers (that are provided on the tour), reuse cutlery and plates, repurpose melted cooler ice (on the landscaping), customize the vehicles to achieve optimum efficiency, train their drivers how to be extra fuel efficient, and maintain high vehicle maintenance standards.
Explore the stories and sights of the enchanted realm and the skies above. As you immerse yourself in the sacredness of Haleakala summit at sunrise, the landscape will inspire you.
