Explore Haleakala's unique and out-of-this-world landscape and natural life - 7-8 hours in Mercedes Sprinter van


Haleakala - the House of the Sun - is one of those very special and very unique places on earth. . . You can't come to Maui and skip visiting this breathtaking (literally, at 10, 000 feet, the air is thin!), silent and peaceful volcano, out-of-this-world scenery, and see plants and animals found nowhere else on earth!

Only a small handful of commercial operators are allowed inside Haleakala National Park, and we're now blessed to be one of them! On your private tour, you will cruise in comfort in a Mercedes Sprinter van, and can decide to do mellow sightseeing, light or extreme hiking, and/or birdwatching.

Sunrise tours are NOT available (only 4 tour companies have sunrise permits), however we have some availability for sunset tours. This tour is not available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Published rate is for a group of 10! Please inquire for a detailed quote for your party.

Itinerary

The precise itinerary will depend on the starting point and your personal interests, and is always flexible as the day goes.

For example, starting in Kihei/Wailea, we would drive to the Park, stop at the lower visitor center to enjoy views, then go all the way to the summit and spend some time at the top and at the visitor center, followed by a picnic lunch at the campground or a late lunch at an Upcountry restaurant. For hikers, we would hit the trails!

This is a private custom tour, so there are no compulsory stops, and any and all stops are YOUR choice! The itinerary for this tour is highly variable depending on your desires and interests and can be either very mellow or quite active and adventurous--get in touch to discuss details.

The tour's activity level can be anywhere from Minimal to Extreme, depending on YOUR abilities and desires!
