Haleakala Crater

The lunar landscape of Haleakala Crater covers an enormous expanse – so big that Manhattan could squeeze inside. The world’s largest dormant volcano, the crater is protected by the Haleakala National Park.

This is the place for stunning views of cinder cones, wild hiking trails, Hawaiian legends and rare endangered species.

Gazing into the huge crater is an awe-inspiring sight, and several hikes lead across the crater floor.

Haleakala last erupted in 1790, and the odds are good that it could blow its top again one day.

Practical Info

Haleakala National Park extends from the summit of Haleakala Crater to the coast near Hana. The only way to get here is by hire car or organized tour.

To drive to the summit of Haleakala Crater from the nearest town, Kahului, follow routes 37, 377 and 378. It’s around a 1.5 hour trip.
