One of the most spectacular views available is watching a sunrise above the clouds atop the Haleakala (Holly-ah-kah-la) Volcano located in Haleakala Crater National Park on Maui. This type of tour begins long before first light while the rest of Maui is fast asleep. Often referred to as "the best thing to do on Maui", it is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience and must be seen to be believed! Shuttle service to the crater is either provided from your resort or a predetermined meeting location. Some companies offer a self-paced guided tour where the courtesy or shuttle van follows the group down the hill to your final destination. There are also tours that are available for those wishing to guide themselves, or would prefer to have their bicycle tour start after the sun rises. Either way, a sunrise atop Maui's Haleakala volcano is sure to provide memories of a lifetime!
Some companies allow those less capable of riding the approximately 26 miles down the volcano an option of riding in the luxury of the courtesy or shuttle van. Fees do apply, check with company directly for physical restrictions and cost.
For those with family members with physical limitations, consider taking Phil's Van Tour!
