Start off your day with one of the most beautiful dawns on Earth.

April K.
Urban Explorer

You’ll be in awe as the sun peeks above the “house of the rising sun,” which is the English translation for Haleakalā. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a true local treasure you won’t want to miss.

I recommend beginning your drive up the 10,000 feet to the summit of the Haleakala volcano around 3 a.m., while the stars are still high in the sky. After sunrise, you'll enjoy discovering native birds in the scrubland and endemic plants and animals. The mountain is one of the only easily accessible areas of Hawai‘i where rare Hawaiian species thrive. Be sure to layer clothes because temperatures are 20 to 30 degrees colder at the summit.

Reservations are required for sunrise hours, so call us to make arrangements as soon as possible.
