Small-Group Tour: Luxury Haleakala Sunrise Experience

Luxury Van Interior

Say hello to a new day in Maui from the island’s best vantage point: on top of the amazing Haleakala Peak. This small-group luxury sunrise trip by limo-van, limited to just eight guests and including breakfast, is the perfect way to experience this unforgettable natural sight.

Start your sunrise adventure with an early morning pickup from your Maui hotel. Get situated in your comfortable luxury limo van for the 1.5-hour drive through Haleakala National Park. Continue climbing in your limo-van toward the 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) crater at the summit of this massive shield volcano. As you ascend the 35 miles (56 kilometers) from sea level toward the summit, the desolate rocky terrain will make you feel like you’ve traveled to a distant alien planet.

Soon you’ll arrive at the summit, following the suggestions from your guide about where to sit to get the best views. You’ll also receive a light snack to help tide you over until breakfast. Then soak up the slowly increasing waves of light as they creeps across the sky, setting the horizon on fire with an unforgettable light show of pastel colors. 

Once your sunrise show has ended, follow your guide back to the limo-van for breakfast, enjoying a meal at a charming local-Hawaiian spot with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. After fueling up (and getting some caffeine) continue to a local protea garden, where you’ll explore a beautiful array of exotic flowers, 90 types of which grow on Maui. The species is actually part a family of wildflowers originally native to South Africa and Australia. Explore this lush botanical site with your guide, listening to a story about the unique journey of these beautiful plants and how they ended up in Maui.

Finish your day in the late morning with a return drop-off at your Maui hotel.

We had a wonderful experience on our sunrise tour. Sean picked us up right on time, and knew excately what time we needed to arrive in order to have a viewing spot. He was prepared with extra blankets and gloves. The sunrise it self was amazing! Then Sean lead us to a couple of other viewing spots, followed by breakfast. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and made the ride home very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour.

Everyone says this is a must do and they are so right. Scotty was our guide and he was great. Now this is an early wake up like 3 am early but it's necessary. Scotty was prompt and got us there ahead of the rush to secure the best viewing spots. It is super cold up there so layering is a must- he had additional layers if needed. He stayed out there with us from start to finish and was able to tell us about constellations while it was dark and we were waiting for the sun. He took great pics and videos for us. The sunrise is gorgeous and you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful view of it than there. After the sunrise we went down for a tasty breakfast and we're back at our hotel for a nap by 1030. Temptation tours did a great job here!

Our guide, Sean, was great...lots of knowledge and always had an answer to our groups many questions. He got us up there before any other group which afforded us the best spot for viewing the sunrise. He was also well prepared with blankets for anyone who didn't realize how cold it could be. There are no words to adequately describe the say spectacular would be an understatement. After the sunrise, many left to head back down, but we stayed to see the magnificent views from the Summit. What a treat. Breakfast at the Kula Lodge was delicious and a walk through their beautiful garden was a great end to our tour

Sean was our tour guide and was on time for our early morning pickup and got us to the front of the line for a great view. The breakfast at the Kula Lodge was nice and their gardens are beautiful. Sean was friendly and informative throughout the trip.

My wife Debbie and I did the small group sunrise tour to Haleakala, and absolutely LOVED it! Our driver, Scott, was the absolute best! We were picked up on time, and the whole ride there he talked about the sights we were seeing obviously, he was very knowledgeable. He got us to the top nice and early enough to get a prime photo-taking spot. Good old Scott was prepared, too - it was cold up there, and he had blankets, hats and coats, in case. He also showed us some neat tricks on taking pictures with our phonew, which was very helpful! After the sunrise, we took some great pictures of the flowers and vegetation, and Scott even took our picture at the summit sign. We left, and had a very delicious breakfast at a lodge near the bottom of Haleakala. Then, we took a tour of the surrounding garden, where we took more awesome pictures. We then went into the flower shop, where we ordered a beautiful arrangement of local flowers and had them sent to friends of ours they later told us it was the most gorgeous arrangement of flowers they had ever received! We proceeded back to the hotel, with Scott telling us a great story about the sugar cane fields, and teaching us how to speak Hawaiian. We got back to our hotel in plenty of time to enjoy the rest of our day, which we did on the beach by our hotel catching up on our sleep - ha ha! We highly recommend the small-group sunrise tour to Haleakala - you will not be disappointed!

This is a tour to be taken once, very early start! Our tour guide, Aaron, was very knowledgeable and considerate. He had blankets for all of us, which were very much appreciated. Temptation tours has a very comfortable fleet of vans and limits the number of people on each trip. Our tour had only myself, my husband and a family of four. I would highly recommend.
