What You Can Expect

Small-Group Luxury Tour: Road to Hana and Ka'eleku Cavern Day Trip

Travel the Breathtaking Pacific Coast by Luxury Van

After pickup from your Maui hotel in the morning, enjoy a light morning snack of pound cake, fruit juice and Kona coffee and begin your adventure along the famous Road to Hana. In the air-conditioned comfort of your luxury 8-person limo-van, you’ll travel through lush tropical rainforests and along splendid coastal routes to Ke’anae, where you'll get out and explore the quaint Hawaiian village full of peaceful taro fields. Then, continue to Waikani Falls, where you’ll admire glistening rainwater pools.

Along the way, your guide will provide interesting commentary about the sites you pass as well as native Hawaiian culture.

Stop at incredible Ka’eleku Cavern. Said to have been created by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, this enormous subterranean lava tube features dramatic stalactites and stalagmites. Wind your way through the underground cave passage with your guide and marvel at the unique landscape: mounds of seemingly chocolate-covered lava formations and swirls formed more than 30,000 years ago. Be sure to have your camera ready for amazing photos!

After your cave tour, enjoy a scrumptious Pacific Rim lunch served on a linen table cloth in a pavilion at the cavern. Dine on grilled chicken or seared ono with organic greens, vegetable pasta salad, fresh fruit and a brownie.

Arrive finally in Hana, a remote town on the rugged Pacific coastline featuring pristine beaches and verdant rainforests. Hop out the limo-van to stretch your legs and explore the cascading waterfalls and bamboo forests. Your guide will take you on a tour of Hana Tropicals, a stunning garden and nursery, where you can admire the beautiful flowers and vegetation.

Your return journey will be at a ‘Maui-style’ pace, with plenty of time to swim in the crystal-clear freshwater pools or simply relax and soak in the warm island atmosphere. You’ll arrive back at your Maui hotel in the early evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Really enjoyed someone else driving, so we could enjoy the views. The lava tube cave was a fun exploration, the sea cave on the Hana beach was cool, and the swim under the waterfall was a refreshing adventure.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

A proper full day trip, rewarding and worthwhile. We saw so much, learned a lot and visited lots of cool places along the Road to Hana. Some of our faves were the black sand beach, lava tube and orchid farm. The van was so comfortable my partner even fell asleep on the way back to our hotel haha. Aloha from Australia!
