Departure: Pick-ups from hotel or condo
The Sunrise Journey is our most popular tour and seating is limited. Your tour begins with hotel pick-up and van tour to the summit of Haleakala. Our certified tour guides provide you with a history of Haleakala, its geology and an explanation of rare plants and animals only found on Maui. Upon arrival at the summit you will be escorted by your mountain guides to the rim of the crater where you will view the spectacular sunrise. Following sunrise, you will be served a continental breakfast (hot coffee, juice, and pastries) followed by an informative tour of Haleakala National Park.
Your tour then proceeds to the 6,500 foot level of Haleakala where you will receive a comprehensive safety briefing and begin your 28-mile bike ride down the slopes of Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano. Your journey proceeds through Haleakala Ranch, the upcountry communities of Kula and Pukalani, and stopping in the town of Makawao for a no-host sit down breakfast stop. Following breakfast and a walking tour of this unique upcountry historic town you will continue your bike ride through sugar cane and pineapple fields, continuing down to the Pacific Ocean and ending at Paia Beach Park. We include round-trip transportation, continental breakfast at the summit, Columbia Sportswear windbreaker pants and jacket, gloves, helmet, and state-of-the-art volcano chrome cruiser bikes. Make sure to bring your camera because there will be lots of photo opportunities!
