This tour will give you a one day experience of just how diverse the Island of Maui really is. The tour begins at sea level and climbs to over 10,000 feet above to the top of Mt. Haleakala. This is the world's largest dormant volcano, it looks like the moon, dry and desolate.
The drive to the top takes about 2 hours and is a journey in itself. Locals call this part of the island Upcountry. The diversity is truly amazing, from palm trees and white sand beaches at sea level, you will be treated to beautiful pasture lands, sugar cane, pineapple fields, protea farms, stunning landscapes, forests, ranch land, up and up to lava flows and finally the crater. At the top there is a viewing lookout with detailed information about this incredible place. Also at the top are the rare nene goose and the silversword plant found nowhere else on earth.
We may travel through the quaint cowboy town of Makawao at about 1,200 feet. The town still has hitching posts for horses. There are wonderful shops and local restaurants from Italian, Mexican, health food to a bakery that is world famous.
Upcountry Maui also includes the wonderful Ali'i Kula Lavender Garden which serves a breakfast of scones & tea and spectacular view of Maui, as well as the world famous Tedeschi Winery.
As with all of our tours, the itinerary is totally flexible and can be changed spontaneously, it's up to you and your guide.
