Greeting the sunrise in Haleakala National Park is one of the most popular things to do on Maui. Atop the famous Haleakala Crater, the highest peak on the island of Maui, you will witness an explosion of color as the sun rises above the clouds. This rare opportunity to view paradise from this altitude will be the highlight of your stay.
For almost 150 years, visitors to Maui have ascended Haleakala to experience the miracle of demi-god Maui’s efforts. But for over 1000 years before those early missionaries climbed the mountain, Haleakala was considered sacred by Hawaiians. Known as wao akua, or “realm of the gods”, Haleakala’s summit was visited only when necessary, and only then by certain individuals such as kapuna (“priests”) Over time, Haleakala’s animals, plants and rocks all developed a special meaning and purpose.
After pickup, your first stop would be an all you can eat continental breakfast at a comfortable restaurant. From there, embark on the 30-mile drive up the mountain. Arriving into the park before sunrise, your guide will prepare you for the sunrise experience, providing historical information about the volcano, teach about Hawaiian culture as well tips to stay warm and safe (please stay on the trails!) After sunrise, your guide will take you back down the mountain to a hot, Maui buffet breakfast. Keep your cameras handy for the numerous short stops on the way to enjoy the incredible bi-coastal views!
