Bike Haleakala the easy way – downhill! But first you’ll travel up to the crater rim at 10,000 feet in a comfortable van, arriving before daybreak to watch as the sun begins to rise, spreading a glow across the landscape. Once it is light enough you’ll marvel at the crater's eerie landscape of cinder cones and ancient lava formations.
Then follow your guide for the exhilarating ride down the 21 switchbacks of this massive dormant volcano, followed by your escort van driver. You are welcome to ride in the escort van at any time. Along the way there will be photo stops to capture your Maui moments.
The thrill of the ride is enhanced by the lovely landscapes surrounding you. You’ll coast through eucalyptus forests, glide past colorful lavender farms and travel along roadways lined with feathery jacaranda trees. You'll visit the Sunrise Protea Farm where you can purchase proteas –strange and exotic flowers – as well as local foods, sandwiches, salads and beverages.
