Greet the day as you never have before! Experience sunrise on the summit of Maui's spectacular Haleakala volcano.

This very special day in Maui begins early in the morning when you will be whisked off to the summit of the majestic Haleakala Volcano. Rising over 10,000 ft from sea level, Haleakala is renowned for its breathtaking beauty, particularly at first light.

As the morning sun begins to rise, a kaleidoscope of golden colors will appear and a breathtaking 360-degree view will be revealed, encompassing the Big Island of Hawai'i, West Maui, Lana'i, Moloka'i, and beyond.

With a state certified tour guide as your escort, you'll leave the park with a deeper understanding of the unique geology and ecology of Haleakala National Park.

We'll also enjoy a Hawaiian style breakfast at a local restaurant. The magnificence of the day will leave you awe-inspired.

Your personable and knowledgeable guide open your eyes to the story of the native Hawaiian people and the land they inhabit.
