Full description

Travel across the island of Maui on an early morning driving tour you can enjoy at your own pace. Follow a GPS-enabled audio guide through quaint towns, the Makawao forest, and the Kula Botanical Garden. Take in the lush scenery and reach Haleakalā volcano to admire the sunrise from the summit.

Download the app that will function as your personal guide and head out on your own vehicle to the town of Kahului. Head inland through the picturesque town of Pukalani and listen to an insightful introduction to Maui's historic cowboys, known as 'paniolos'. Learn about the island's rich culture as you become surrounded by the lush wilderness of the Makawao Forest Reserve, featuring some fantastic hiking and biking trails through the jungle. Pass a park full of friendly chickens before arriving at the Kula Botanical Garden.

Pause your tour at any of these locations or head straight into Haleakalā National Park to catch the sunrise. Begin ascending the awe-inspiring volcano, rising over 29,000 feet from its base below the sea. Get acquainted with myths and legends about this natural landmark as you drive up. Find a couple of hiking trails with great mountaintop views, as well as two fantastic overlooks of the crater and surrounding landscape. Reach the Haleakalā Visitor Center and Red Hill, the highest point on the island. End your adventure with striking panoramic views from the top.

This excursion does not include tickets to access the crater so we missed the sunrise and had to buy park access tickets and wait until 7am to return to the park entrance!
