No crowds, no frills – just you, the volcano, and a bike. This is one fun bike ride.
The coolest way to see the sunrise atop Haleakala Volcano is with Haleakala Bike Company. Their tour is way more than a Maui volcano bike ride. This over 20 year old Maui enterprise can pick you up in the early morning from your hotel, resort, or cruise ship, and then drive you all the way up the east Maui volcano in a van. While staying comfortable and warm inside the vehicle, you’ll be wowed with a 1 – 1.5 hour guided tour of the National Park. You’ll see the volcano’s young cinder cones dotting the alien landscape, and you’ll spend time near the massive crater that is large enough to swallow Manhattan! Woah.
After the amazing guided tour, you’ll take time to experience the morning’s sunrise from a point of view you never have before: at 10,023 feet! At this height on Haleakala, you are completely above one-third of the Earth’s atmosphere, and you will understand why the name of the volcano translates to “House of the Sun” in the Hawaiian language. Some say the moment that the sun first shows itself is indescribable.
And this tour gets even better as the sun continues to rise.
There is nothing that can compare to a Maui volcano bike ride 23 miles down Haleakala. The sheer physical and emotional rush of watching the sun first touch the ocean that day, combined with connecting with the ‘aina (land), makani (wind), and la (sun) on a bicycle is incredible. It is the ultimate way to really be on the island of Maui.
You’ll explore Upcountry out in the elements at your own pace without anyone telling you when to be anywhere…talk about bliss! Watch the agricultural lands and farm animals of the sleepy town of Kula pass by. Stroll the art galleries and cafes of quaint Makawao. And just before you return your bicycle, enjoy viewing the beautiful botanical wonders of Haiku, all as long as you wish!
