Haleakala, Iao Valley and Central Maui Day Tour

Your 8-hour central Maui day trip begins with a pickup at your hotel. Meet your expert guide and get ready for an immersive look at many of Maui’s unique highlights, including scenic drives through its valleys and agricultural regions, walks through its state and national parks, and a glimpse at the seat of its government. Your day kicks off with dramatic views at Haleakala National Park, covering 33,000 acres of rocky, volcanic wilderness and home to a variety of wildlife. Summit Maui’s 10,023-foot (3,007-meter) dormant volcano while learning about its geologic history on the driving ascent. Take in the tropical scenery and expansive views before driving on to the next piece of eye candy: the Iao Needle located in Iao Valley State Park.The needle is a fascinating erosional pinnacle rising 1,200 feet (366 meters) from the Iao Valley floor and surrounded by a volcanic crater. Walk along a short trail to a panoramic overlook and enjoy the view. Nearby, learn about the Kaahumanu Church, named after Queen Kaahumanu and erected in 1876. Spend 30-minutes admiring its architecture and views of Iao Valley. Next, get a dose of Hawaiian culture on a drive through the city of Wailuku, the seat of Maui’s government and location of its historic state and federal buildings. Listen to your guide as you ride past Maui’s famous flower farms, pineapple fields and sugar cane plantations. Be sure to bring your camera — these are sights unlike anywhere else. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your Maui hotel.

Maui Day Trip: Haleakala, Iao Valley, Old Lahaina from Oahu

Start your day with optional early morning pickup in Oahu to arrive at the airport for your 45-minute flight to Maui. Your guide meets you upon landing in Maui and transfers you to your comfortable air-conditioned coach to start your adventure on the island, the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Visit the top highlight of Maui, the majestic Haleakala Crater. As your coach climbs the long winding road that ascends 10,000 feet in just 37 miles (60 km), soak in stunning views of the west side of Maui and the Pacific Ocean. Arriving at the Visitor's Center of Mt Haleakala, marvel at the dormant volcano’s enormous crater, which measures 3,000 feet (915 meters) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, 7.5 miles (12 km) long and 22 miles (35 km) in circumference. Although the volcano last erupted in 1790, the land surrounding the lava flow still appears barren. Keep a jacket handy for the cooler temperatures at the summit. In contrast to the stark volcanic terrain of Mt Haleakala, the Iao Valley boasts lush emerald rain forest interspersed with waterfalls, swimming holes and jagged mountain landscapes. Enjoy about an hour at Iao Needle, a rock pinnacle that stands 2,250 feet (686 m) above sea level. Take a stroll along an easy trail that gives you great views of the Iao Needle and the park's breathtaking scenery. In addition to the natural highlights of the island, stop in the town of Wailuku, located near the Iao Valley. Have time to explore the quaint town and see the historic Ka’ahamanu Church, named in honor of Hawaiian monarch Queen Ka’ahamanu. Your knowledgeable guide shares stories about Maui’s sights and history throughout your day, along with plenty of stops for photo ops and a lunch stop (own expense) around mid-day. At the end of about an eight hour tour on Maui, your guide takes you to the airport for your return flight to Oahu.
