A visit to Maui is not complete without experiencing Haleakala Crater—a magnificent amphitheater of silence, and a place of beauty that always evokes awe. Our crater tour offers an adventure through two very different environments high up on this dormant volcano. On a clear day, it seems you can see forever.
Hike into both sides of Haleakala; each environment is very different from the other, so both should be experienced to gain a true appreciation for this natural phenomenon. Two-mile hike at the 10,000-foot summit where huge cinder cones dominate the desert-like, expansive scenery. Another two-mile hike at 8,000 ft. on a lava trail lined with rare native plant species. Views stretch for miles in all directions. Nutritious lunch and snacks included.

Schedule:

  • Availability: Thursdays
  • Tour Times: 9:30am
  • Duration: 7 Hours (hotel transfers add time to the tour)

Recommendations:

  • Shoes to Wear on our Tours
    • Running shoes are perfectly suitable. There’s no need to bring hiking boots unless you want to (they do take up a lot of suitcase space).
    • Your shoes may get muddy, dirty, and/or wet on any of our hikes.
  • Clothing for our Tours
    • The weather is often cool or cold (the altitude is 10,000 feet); then it can warm up as you hike. So layered clothing is best, including a jacket, down vest, sweatshirt, or sweater. You guide will also carry extra jackets.
  • Additional Items to Bring for the Day
    • Towel: Waterfall trips include swimming (optional)
    • Sunscreen: Helpful on any tour, but essential on the Haleakala Crater trip
    • Camera & Phone: Please bring a Ziploc or a plastic bag to prevent any damage from moisture
