Haleakala National Park and Iao Valley State Park
1 DAY MAUI VOLCANO TOUR FROM OAHU
Haleakala Crater & National Park*
Kula and upcountry Maui
Iao Valley State Park*
Haleakala Crater, an active 10,000-foot volcano that currently lies sleepily on eastern Maui’s expanse, can be seen from anywhere on the island. Haleakala is Hawaiian for ‘house of the sun’ and local legend has it that here the god Maui snared the sun forcing it to slow its journey across the skies. Visitors and locals can pay homage to that legend by rising early to watch the sunrise from the crater’s peak.
At the entrance to Iao Valley lies the town of Wailuku, which for hundreds of years was home to ancient priests and warriors and now remains a sleepy tourist destination that still manages to exude the charm of a genuine Hawaiian village. A highlight of your tour is a visit to Ka’ahumanu Church built in 1876 and named in honor of Queen Ka’ahumanu who was influential in establishing Christianity on the islands. The church still features services in the native Hawaiian tongue on Sundays.
