Things to do | Haleakala at Sunrise

See More Activities

You'll begin by ascending 10,023 feet for one of the most beautiful dawns on earth as the sun peeks above the “house of the rising sun,” which is the English translation for Haleakala.

Nothing can prepare you for the feelings you will experience on the summit of Haleakala volcano. The panoramic sunrise view of Haleakala Crater—a once-in-a-lifetime experience—is overwhelming. Visually stunning, the summit area is enormous in its scale and dimensions.

After sunrise, you'll enjoy discovering native birds in the shrubland, the cinder desert landscape, and endemic plants and animals. The mountain is one of the only easily-accessible areas of Hawai‘i where rare Hawaiian species survive and thrive.

This is a once in a lifetime experience! We did it on our own and the drive is a bit nerve wracking and it is a LONG trip, especially the last part. But, you will probably not get an opportunity to see anything like it more than once in your life. Be sure to bring very warm clothes as it is really cold up there.

The Haleakala sunrise was an amazing adventure. From waking up in the middle of the night. Driving all the way up the volcano though the clouds. To finally getting a sight of the day ahead of us. Breathtaking.
Is it worth leaving your warm bed in your villa at 2 AM to make the trek to the top of Haleakala...definitely YES! Seeing the sun rise majestically over Haleakala, watching the colors in the crater go from black to various shades of grey, purple, and other colors is a unique experience. Afterwards, get on your bike for an exhilarating bike ride down the mountain to the ocean. Most tours will get you back to your villa by 2 PM when you will still have plenty of time to nap on the beach.

My team members and I are truly local experts. Let us help you make the most of your trip to Maui.
