“One of the best Volcanos yet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Just a magical place. We drove up there during the day above the clouds, looking down over the Island. The crater was amazing, the colours, the size. Looked like somewhere on Mars, in fact the astronauts train there.

“Wonderul Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Haleakala is wonderful, especially for Sunsets or Sunrises. Dress warm because it can be windy w/ temps in the 40s. You can spend an hour or days depending on the exploring & hiking you want to do. Earlier is often better because it gets cloudy early.

“Spectacular View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a must see if you visit Maui. The views both from the winding road to the summit and from the summit itself are amazing. It was a beautiful day when we were there and it was totally amazing to look down on the clouds.

“If the weather is nice, go!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

It was a bright, clear day for our trip up Haleakala. Stunning views on the twisty road up and otherworldly views at the top. The colors in the crater were amazing. If you are able, hike at least a mile into the crater to get an even better perspective. My daughter (12) and I went about a mile down...pretty easy even with the uphill hike for anyone in decent shape. The drive was not that bad up or down in sunny weather.

“A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

By far, this was one of the most memorable events and was worth the entire trip. The sunrise was absolutely breathtaking above the clouds... a real precious moment to soak in natures beauty and what it has to offer. It is definitely very cold at the top, so I suggest wearing a coat. Gift shop at the top.
