Mounting one of these disc brake bikes and riding down the windy mountain with a guided tour is one of the great adventures of visiting Maui! We have done it solo and as a family when our kids were in their early teens. Although the...More

What an amazing experience! The winding, we’ll-maintained road to the summit offers some breath-taking views above the clouds! At just over 10,000’ Haleakula - “House of the Sun” - presides majestically over Maui. The drive is only an hour and a half from Kahului, but...More

The view from the summit is spectacular, but take the time to hike down about 13 km, first into the crater and later up a slope back to the road. Ideally you leave the car at the parking lot about one km after the park...More

Book ticket well in advance and dress warm (toque, mitts, layers). We brought a big blanket. Worth the windy road drive.

We started our trip to Maui by going to Haleakala National Park. It was an amazing drive to the top elevation of 10,000 + feet above sea level. The road is narrow and often without guard rails. I was a bit nervous but by going...More

I came here back in October to watch the sun set, and it was an experience unlike any I’ve had before. It takes a while to drive up the winding road, but the view makes it totally worth it. There’s a thick layer of clouds...More
