Select Date and Travellers

As dawn breaks, take your place on the 10,000-foot summit of Mount Haleakala, Maui’s highest dormant volcano over. Make the very early morning ascent to the peak on-board a comfortable coach accompanied by a guide. Travel the winding roads through the clouds and experience the stunning, colorful sunrise while seated on the mountain side. The excursion is several hours long and includes entrance fees, continental breakfast, and roundtrip transportation.

What to Expect

Learn why Mark Twain once said this was, “The most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.” Your tour begins in the middle of the night when a minibus arrives to pick you up at your hotel. Along the scenic, climbing drive to the summit you’ll pass the Kula District and Puu Ulaula Overlook as you ascend 10,000-feet to the summit of Mount Haleakala, a dormant volcano. At the top, get off the minibus and take your place on Maui’s highest peak as daylight begins illuminating the horizon and lighting the landscape below. Watch as the sunlight streaks the sky with vibrant, stunning colours until the sun sits high above the horizon. With the morning underway you’ll board the minibus and return to your hotel to review your spectacular photos and get some rest.

Such a waste of time.

I cannot understand how reviews were so positive. For a 5 minute sunrise, you have to wake up at 2am, spend 1 hr in the cold, and the rest of the time driving in a shuttle. The trip lasted almost NINE hours, all for a...More

Highlight of our holiday - totally met all expectations

Our first ever trip to the US from Australia - we wanted something special to start with. What did we get? Having read up before we set out on this tour, the early start, the long trip and the winding roads came as no surprise....More

This was absolutely amazing. I was picked up early, 2:30AM to be exact! Pick-up times depend on your resort but all are in the middle of the night. It is a long drive up the switches to get to Haleakala and it is very cold...More

Great view...horrible tour leader

View and weather were great. “Nettie Andretti” was horrible. She would not stop talking. But she wasn’t saying anything if that makes sense. She just kept repeating herself and giving us the rules...bc she didn’t want to get fined for us going on the unpaved...More
