Maui’s Most Popular Land Activities
While Maui is surrounded by a gorgeous turquoise ocean, that doesn’t mean you need to spend every waking moment beachside. If you’re looking to dry out on land, here are Maui’s most popular activities for land lovers.
There is a very good chance that you just came from a place that doesn’t offer a self-propelled ariel tour across stunning landscape and over forests of eucalyptus trees. A zipline tour has the potential to change your perception of Maui as you fly 70 feet above the ground and soar 40 miles per hour. You will literally find yourself in the treetops, looking out at the stunning North Shore of Maui. There is no experience level needed, as your very skilled instructors will have you safely latched in and all you need to do is have fun!
Driving your own ATV through the lush cow pasture of an active cattle ranch is a very unique way to spend your time on Maui. Safety is first with this company, so you’ll be well prepped with information and equipped with safety gear like helmets and eye goggles. These easy to drive ATVs are even suitable for inexperienced drivers, so everyone can be a part of this experience. Your tour will climb up to 1,800 feet where you find yourself surrounded by a fresh water reservoir and a waterfall that will beckon you to slide down its wild back. If the ATV is enough adventure for you, feel free to take a dip in the cool water of the waterfall pool. Enjoy the complimentary chilled, fresh local fruit and refreshments as you look around the lush, green beauty that surrounds you. This tour is fun from A to Z!
If you’d like to start your day on top of the world, this tour is made for you. Maui is home to the world’s largest dormant volcano, Haleakala. This is one of the most spectacular sunrises you will ever feast your eyes on. With a shuttle taking you 10,023 feet above the sea level, you’ll look out all the way to the Big Island as the vibrant colors of the new day rise to greet you. A mountaintop continental breakfast is included in this tour, making the whole deal too good to pass up!
If you don’t know where to look, much of Maui’s beauty will be lost behind hard-to-find paths and dense eucalyptus forests. With a tour, you have the advantage of a guide who knows the secrets of the island. This tour is through a unique valley filled with a waterfall playground. You’ll follow streams to waterfalls ranging from 10 feet to 40 feet. You’ll be able to climb volcanic shelves to jump into the waterfall pools below. You’ll work up an appetite, so thankfully lunch and a snack is included. This is Maui at its best!
This 2 hour ride starts with meeting some of the friendliest horses on the island, and picking the pal that will carry you along valley trails to the sunset. There is nothing like connecting to the island via a horse and sunset. This tour does not disappoint anyone that loves sunsets or horses!
This Hawaiian Aquarium isn’t your average set of fish tanks staked up. This beautifully designed ocean center thrills young and old alike with their “feeling” tanks and jaw-dropping shark tank. Their main purpose is to support our marine life, and the only fish that they showcase are indigenous and have been collected safely under guidelines and permits issued by Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Division of Aquatic Resources. Once they seem to no longer seem to be thriving in captivity, they are released back into the wild. With fun games to teach respectful ocean practices, this center is a learning experience for everyone!
Everyone should get the Hana experience while visiting Maui. If driving the windy, narrow roads is keeping you from this adventure, Valley Isle Tour is happy to do the hard part while you sit back and relax. Once your guide finds the perfect spot, they will stop and set up a mouth-watering picnic. A feast fit for a king and a view fit for royalty! All the makings for a fabulous tour!
