Know More about this tour

Meet your guides in the morning at your Maui hotel before experiencing the grandeur of Haleakala. On your moderately difficult 4-mile (6.4-kilometer) hike, discover the length of the national park and the expanse of the crater. You'll explore both ends, which each offer completely different environments rich for discovery. The energy and majesty of the area are best experienced with your local guide, who shares insider wisdom while you uncover the beauty of your natural surroundings.

Home to endangered species and rare native birds, Haleakala Crater's wild beauty has been preserved by native Hawaiians for more than 1,000 years. The crater's legendary summit is a prominent figure in many legends, and the sacred space has welcomed millions of travelers honoring the gods or saying farewell to the deceased over the years. The fragile landscape also houses plants and animals that can't be found anywhere else in the world, and is the home to numerous significant cultural sites and their ancient artifacts. You'll explore the full depth of the crater, appreciating its diverse past and varied topography.

During the first leg of your journey, travel 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) into the air, where you'll pass a lava trail filled with native plant species. Provided lunch and snacks will bolster your energy as you continue to the 10,000-foot (3,048-meter) summit. The second half of the hike takes you past desert-like expansive scenery, huge cinder cones and the crater's rough rock faces. Savor the ethereal energy of the area and terracotta hues of the mountains as your 7-hour exploration of the natural marvel comes to a close, before you're transported back to your hotel with a camera full of breathtaking photos.

  • It wasn't the horrid weather, that was just bad luck. However the tour guide felt he had to make up the time by driving around to assorted small tourist towns. It was an incredibly boring experience. We should have been allowed to simply return to our hotels.

  • We had a wonderful time. The crater was spectacular, lunch was great, very organized. But the best part was our guide. She was friendly, fun, engaging, and taught us so much about the history of the island, the flora and fauna, and the Hawaiian culture. My kids said it was their best day on the island!!

  • Very informative guides on a host of subjects, including the National Park itself, as well as wildlife, birds plant species, and even pronunciation of Hawaiian language.
