This is a tour so well-known that many people hear about it without even knowing where to do it.

The sunrise tour is famous as it starts EARLY in the morning and allows you to see one of the most spectacular solar displays found anywhere!

For this ultra-thrilling tour, you'll be transported by van to Haleakala National Park, where you'll stand atop Maui's magnificent 10,023 foot Haleakala volcano. This enormous crater is 21 miles in circumference, 3,000 feet deep, and is large enough to fit Manhattan Island within. After taking in the beauty of this incredible natural wonder, you'll reboard the van and descend to 6,500 feet, where you'll be fitted with a Worksman Cruiser Style Bike, as well as a helmet, windbreaker jacket, pants, and gloves.

Now you're ready for the next leg of your adventure. You'll be biking downhill for 20 miles along the side of a dormant volcano, yet you'll be pedaling for only 400 yards.

This all sounds a bit dangerous so it was our job to seek out the BEST company for the job and we did just that. We found the originators!

Please note that as romantic as this tour sounds, it is not for novices. You should be an experienced biker to handle the switchbacks, which are extensive at the beginning of the trip.

Once at the bottom, the experience takes on a somewhat surreal quality as your mind keeps replaying the constant series of turns and roadways that led to your final destination. One glance up at the top and you realize that you've conquered a mountain. You've connected with Maui in a way that you know is different. You smelled the camphor of the eucalyptus trees as you passed through the forests and you breathed the cool thin air from Maui's hightest slopes. Today was a different day for you. And it was worthwhile.
