Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.
Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive through the island, passing the Kula District, Puu Ulaula Overlook and Maui’s rare silversword plants.
Continue with a steady climb by minibus up Haleakala, rising more than 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level. The views from up above are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”
Arrive at the summit and settle in as you observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.
At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.
