Maui's Spectacular Haleakala Sunrise Tour

Witness the most spectacular and romantic sunrise of your life at the top of majestic Mount Haleakala. Come to the "House of the Sun" where ancient Hawaiian myths tell how their demi-god Maui lassoed the Sun.

Remember to set your alarm clock for this early departure, but all the cobwebs will be blown away when the first rays of dawn emerge on the horizon.

You will be collected from your hotel at 2am and taken to the summit of the majestic 10,000 ft Haleakala volcano - what better vantage point could there be to see the breaking of a new day? It is certainly a sight to behold as the sun rises, dispensing a patchwork of light and shadow across the craters and lava trails of the stunning national park.

The American novelist Mark Twain was moved to write that his 1866 visit to this dormant volcano was "...the sublimest spectacle I ever witnessed" and that "...the memory of it will remain with me always"; he wont be alone in that.

In addition to this stunning experience, you will also have the chance to visit the flower gardens of 'upcountry Maui' and the rare silversword plants, which are one of the few plants that manage to survive in this extreme and harsh environment.
