All aboard the Haleakala Express, an excellent self guided bike tour.
If you have already experienced the sunrise at 10,023 feet, and you do not need to learn about the National Park (i.e., you would prefer to sleep in), nothing compares to a 23 mile bike ride down Haleakala Volcano. The downhill Haleakala Express is just what you’re looking for to jumpstart your mid-Maui-morning.
You’ll be dropped off with a bicycle at 6,500 feet and then, you get to ride at your own pace on your own time. You’ll feel the high country Maui breezes surround you, the sun kiss your face, and the ground roll by beneath your spinning tires. There are plenty of amazing opportunities to connect with the ‘aina (land), makani (wind), and la (sun) while on a bicycle. Experiencing this connection and freedom is the ultimate way to really be on the island of Maui, and you just can’t miss it!
While you are enjoying your self-personalized Haleakala Express, you’ll explore Upcountry out in the elements without anyone telling you when to be anywhere…pure bliss! Watch the rolling agricultural lands and curious farm animals of the sleepy town of Kula as you pass by. Stroll the gorgeous art galleries and shops, and grab a bite to eat in the local cafes of quaint Makawao Town. And just before you return your bicycle, enjoy viewing the beautiful botanical wonders of lush and rainy Haiku, all as long as you wish!
Haleakala Bike Company provides all the equipment you’ll need for your Haleakala Express ride, including a Gary Fisher mountain bike, helmet, backpack, rain and wind gear, gloves, and a map with points of interest. Make sure to pack sunscreen, or you’ll experience a brand new appreciation for the English translation of Haleakala (“House of the Sun”)!
