Your tour will begin with a Valley Isle Excursions guide picking you up from your hotel to escort you to Haleakala. Along the ride, you will learn about the history of Haleakala, its unique geology and the rare plants and animals that can only be found on Maui. Once you reach your destination at 10,000 feet your guides will then take you to the rim of the crater where you’ll witness one of the most spectacular sunrises in the world. Peering through crystal clear skies you’ll witness the enchanting beauty of Maui as it welcomes a new day.
As your adventure continues you will descend to the 6,500 ft. level of Haleakala where your guides will give you a comprehensive briefing to ensure your safety along your journey. Once the briefing is completed you will begin your 26-mile bike ride down the 21 switchbacks of Haleakala – the largest dormant Volcano in the world. You’ll pass through Pine and Eucalyptus forests, fields of lavender and through Haleakala ranch to the upcountry community of Kula, home to the gallery of renowned local artist Curtis Wilson Cost. Take in the scenery and witness the bi-coastal views of Maui from high up the mountain as you gently coast your way to Makawao town.
Makawao is a historical Paniolo (Cowboy) town in upcountry Maui. While there, take in the simplistic beauty of this quaint town and admire the architecture which hasn’t changed much since its inception in the early 1900’s. Take a stroll back through time to when life was simpler and moved a little slower. Enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants while shopping for gifts at one of the many boutiques and shops found in town. From wood sculptures to glass blown masterpieces to local and far eastern apparel you’re sure to find something for the whole family.
The ride continues through Makawao Town, riding through pineapple fields, and continues down to the Pacific Ocean and ending at Paia Bay Beach Park. Included in the Sunrise Tour is round trip transportation to and from Haleakala National Park by Valley Isle Excursions (an authorized Haleakala National Park concessionaire), a hot and cold beverage service with a light snack (hot coffee/tea/chocolate, juice & water with an assortment of granola bars) at our base-yard office, Columbia Sportswear windbreaker jacket, helmet and state-of-the-art volcano chrome cruiser bikes.
