Experience the Magic of Haleakala with Polynesian Adventure Tours

A Sunrise Like No Other

Witness an unforgettable sunrise at Haleakala, a once-in-a-lifetime experience made even better by the Polynesian Adventure Tours. The day begins with a hotel pick-up in a spacious, comfortable van, driven by a friendly guide. The journey to the summit is timed perfectly to secure the best spot for the spectacle of the sunrise.

As the first rays of the sun break the morning sky, a mesmerizing scene unfolds. The clouds below are illuminated in hues of orange, red, gray, and purple, creating a breathtaking panorama.

Exploring the Haleakala Volcano Crater

The Haleakala Crater, a vast expanse of windblown rock, presents an otherworldly landscape that seems to transport you to another planet. As you venture along the Sliding Sands Trail, you’ll be mesmerized by the ever-shifting sands that create a scene straight out of a fantasy novel. The unique colors and textures of the crater floor further enhance the surreal atmosphere, making it a truly unforgettable experience.

Cultural and Historical Significance to Hawaii

The Haleakala Sunrise Tour is an extraordinary experience that goes beyond breathtaking vistas. As you embark on this journey, the knowledgeable tour guide will captivate you with fascinating insights into the rich cultural history of Haleakala. A sacred place of worship and unparalleled beauty for Hawaiians, Haleakala is affectionately known as the ‘house of the sun’.

Standing as the tallest free-standing mountain on Earth, it proudly surpasses even the majestic Mt. Everest in height. It’s no wonder that Hawaiian lore weaves tales of the demigod Maui, who fearlessly lassoed the sun from the very summit of this awe-inspiring mountain. Prepare to be immersed in a truly remarkable adventure that combines natural wonder, cultural heritage, and mythical legends.

Unique Flora

Haleakala, the majestic volcanic crater in Hawaii, is not only a sight to behold but also home to the rare and extraordinary silversword plant. This unique species, known for its striking silver color, blooms only once every seven years, creating a truly exceptional and exclusive experience for those fortunate enough to witness it. Found exclusively at the summit of Haleakala, the silversword plant adds a touch of wonder and enchantment to this already awe-inspiring natural wonder.

Hassle-Free Visit

Experience a hassle-free adventure with the Polynesian Adventure Tour! With limited parking and sunrise vehicle restrictions taken care of, you can relax and enjoy. The tour even includes admission, eliminating the stress of finding a parking spot or dealing with entrance restrictions.

Sit back, unwind, and immerse yourself in the journey of a lifetime!

Mark Twain’s Endorsement

Even Mark Twain himself was captivated by the awe-inspiring majesty of Haleakala’s breathtaking sunrise and the incredible wonders of its magnificent crater. Today, you have the incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in this unforgettable experience and still have ample time to return before noon, allowing for a perfect beach visit to complete your day!

“A growing warmth suffused the horizon, and soon the sun emerged and looked out over the cloud-waste, flinging bars of ruddy light across it, staining its folds and billow-caps with blushes, purpling the shaded troughs between, and glorifying the massy vapor-palaces and cathedrals with a wasteful splendor of all blendings and combinations of rich coloring.

It was the sublimest spectacle I ever witnessed, and I think the memory of it will remain with me always.” – Mark Twain in his book Roughing It [1872]

Gourmet Breakfast at Kula Lodge

After the sunrise, enjoy a hot sit-down breakfast at Kula Lodge, courtesy of Polynesian Adventure Tours. From Loco Moco to Goat Cheese and caramelized Onion Quiche, there are several delicious options to choose from. Beverages include coffee, hot tea, or juice.

Dressing Tips

Remember to dress warmly for the tour. It is highly recommended to dress in layers or bring a warm coat to ensure maximum comfort. A cozy hoodie would be perfect as it can be easily removed during the descent if needed.

Don’t forget to also wear a hat, gloves, and warm socks to keep yourself snug and protected from the chilly weather. Stay cozy and enjoy the tour!

Our driver Sale was very professional and very friendly. Driving through the switchbacks we had nothing to fear, Sale was very experienced and safe. My favorite thing about Sale was that he was funny and knowledgeable about all of our surroundings. It amazed me that he could tell a story while being completely focused on driving the entire time. He was very caring too, reserving the front seats for the elderly when he didn’t have to. I would do the road to Hana again but only if Sale was team leading.

My family of 5 got up and ready at 2:30AM to see the sunrise at Haleakalā National Park. Preston was our guide and he made us feel comfortable from the moment we got on the bus. Preston used his experiences and humor to provide facts that kept my family engaged. Even though my kids were ready for the colder temperatures at the top of the crater, Preston provided them with additional layers to keep them comfortable. The Sunrise was magnificent. Preston continued providing interesting facts about the area on our way back which were easier to follow since we could now see!Thank you Preston and Polynesian Adventure Tours for giving my family memories we will never forget.

Our guide, Hank, was excellent. He provided interesting historical information about Hawaii and the places we saw. He pointed out things for us to see or experience as we traveled and approached different areas. He was very personable and interjected humor which made the long day very enjoyable. The tour provided an easy way to see the spectacular scenery and to appreciate the significance of what we were seeing. There were ample stops for stretching our legs and walking through some parks and scenic areas. The food was good for a tour. We were very glad that we took this tour.

Wayne was fantastic! He brought such an energy and excitement to the tour. I’m amazed he had so much to give at 2:00 AM. I loved hearing all of the fun facts and learning about Maui’s history while riding with Wayne. The bus was very comfortable, and the ride was very smooth. We made several stops during the trip, so we had plenty of opportunities to get up and stretch our legs and to use the restroom.As many people know, the summit is indeed very cold. I would suggest wearing multiple layers and even bringing your hotel comforter if you feel so inclined (I wish I had brought mine). Watching the sunrise is such an uplifting experience. One of the park staff does a chant as it starts, and I would recommend leaning into the experience, because you’ll definitely feel something emotionally even if you aren’t very spiritual. It was a beautiful experience that I highly recommended. After descending back into Kahului, you’ll stop for breakfast, which was a nice little treat. From there, you’ll be driven back to your hotel where you can settle in for your afternoon nap.

We had a great time. Frank our driver was most helpful. We spent a lot for this and it wasn’t a disappointment. Everything worked out. The only incident we had was on our flight back the gate was changed but we found out in plenty of time. No fault of yours though. We took plenty of pictures and both of our phones were out when we returned. Love our visit to Pearl Harbor.

The road to Hana was a great way to spend the day. Tour guide (forgot her name...my bad) was knowledgeable and funny. She was able to point out many things we would never have seen on our own. Even saw wild goats and deer! I took a million pictures but I’m just including a few

The Road to Hana Van Tour was a very well-planned trip around the circumference of the base of Haleakala. Our driver, Larry, was an experienced knowledgeable guide. He shared with his 12 passengers the local flora, the volcanic landscape, the history of the area, legends, and wildlife. This full-day tour allowed time for bathroom breaks, photo opportunities, and lunch. Some of the stops included included historic villages, waterfalls, black-sand beaches. We ate lunch in Hana that was deliciously prepared by locals. The food was all locally grown and fresh.If you have time in your itinerary for a full day tour, you should definitely consider this beautiful trip. Having a skilled driver is a comfortable and safe way to travel an extremely narrow and curvy road that skirts some of America’s most beautiful coastline!

We bought the Road to Hana tour through this company. They pick you up from your hotel around 6am & then take you to a golf course to eat a light breakfast. Mostly consists of scones, muffins, fruit, juice, tea, & coffee. Lunch is included. I got the turkey sandwich. That was a pretty good sandwich 😋 anyways, we got Hank as our tour guide. Let me say that this man knows his stuff. We learned so much about the history of not just Maui but of the islands of Hawaii. He talked about everything from when Captain Cook first sailed here & put Hawaii on the map to what's happening now with the economy. It was great. I love a history lesson while I'm admiring the sights. He even stopped to let me pet a goat. I didn't pet the goat cause it ran away. This was an amazing tour. This road is dangerous though but Hank is a master at driving it. It's also absolutely stunning. So many waterfalls & lush green forests & beautiful beaches. Thank you Hank for truly making it a wonderful & unforgettable day ♥️
