Your tour begins with pickup in the very early morning from hotels in the Maui resort areas such as Wailea, Kaanapali, and Kapalua for the drive up to our office/baseyard where we will start you off with a hot or cold beverage and a snack.

From our Office, we will transport you to the 6,500' level and your tour guide will provide you with the history of Haleakala, its geology, and the rare plants and animals found only on Maui. Watch the predawn colors from this location, and then you'll be fitted with a bicycle and helmet to start your guided bike ride. 

Pedal downhill, riding along switchbacks, through Haleakala Ranch, and past Kula. Continue through the towns of Makawao and Paia, and finally reach the Pacific coast at Paia Bay Beach Park.
