Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.

Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive passing the Kula District. and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Arriving at the Haleakala National Park, steadily climb by minibus up Haleakala to 9,740 feet elevation to the Visitor Center. You’ll see Maui’s rare and endemic silversword plants that poignantly bloom once, then perish. You’ll also witness the sunrise from the Visitor Center area. The views from Haleakala are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.

At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll head to breakfast at a local restaurant and then receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Haleakala with Preston!

The sunrise trip to Haleakala in Maui was spectacular. Can't get a better sunrise, we had a perfect weather day (at a balmy 45 degrees, LOL!). The adventure was made even better by our guide. Preston was a phenomenal guide. He made the experience so much better because of his extensive knowledge and "chill" attitude (no pun intended). This man just emitted Maui vibes with an Australian accent! You can tell he truly loves his job as a guide, and he has a great sense of humor! Definitely ask him "how far is the distance between mile markers?" LOL! Everything he pointed out was a sight to see, little tips at the top of the crater (or shall I say depression!). While everyone is looking at the sunrise, he reminds you to turn around...you'd be amazed at the sky colors and shadow of the mountain on the landscape behind you. Even though the whole bus of people scattered once we got off the bus for the sunrise, somehow, Preston managed to find each of us to give us his words of wisdom. I believe the flower I posted was one of his favorites! The restaurant, Kula Lodge, we stopped at for breakfast had terrific food, super friendly staff, and also a beautiful view and gardens. Haleakala is a must see!! Don't be deterred by the early pick up time. It is worth it! And if you can, request Preston!

The sunrise is something that shouldn’t be missed. It is awe inspiring. Our guide told us the best spot to see and got us there early enough to get in that spot.

The ride up was great as our driver narrated and gave us lots of information about our surroundings as well as history! Once we got to where the sunrise spot was, it was very cold so be sure to heed their warning to dress warmly! The sunrise was a bit late in happening but it peeked out from the clouds and was breathtaking. Half way down the mountain, we stopped at the Kula Lodge for a yummy breakfast! I would highly recommend taking this excursion.

Amazing morning. Definitely worth the early wake up! We had a hazy start with a lot of cloud cover but it blew out and we saw a spectacular sunrise in the crater. It was amazing! We had a great breakfast as well at the cafe. The macadamia nut pancakes were so fluffy and delicious. Preston our tour guide was the best. He definitely made this trip a worthwhile experience!!!

What an experience!!! Alfredo was an awesome guide and made our experience so memorable. I could not imagine taking this tour any other way. The roads are windy and dark which made us feel 1000 times safer being on the tour. Your able to sleep comfortably on the bus and fully enjoy the experience. Alfredo shared facts about the island and took us to the cutest little breakfast spot in the hills along the way. People say to dress warm- BELIEVE them!!!

Stunning & humbling
Claudia_S

I never thought this was on my bucket list but I'm so glad I made the trip even though I had to get up in the middle of the night. On the day of my excursion, the temperature at the top of the mountain was only down in the 40's and the wind was not too strong so it was very tolerable if you had on enough layers. The sunrise itself was both stunning and humbling at the same time. Mother Nature did not disappoint!

Breath taking and the best way to see the different areas of Maui. I would have never known about upcountry if we hadn’t taken this tour. Tour guide Preston gave a very thorough history of Maui and went out of his way to share stories and take the time to stop and explain things along the way. Everyone in our group agrees sunrise tour has been our favorite experience. Dress warm as it was only 42 degrees when we went.

Our driver was excellent he was patient and so happy to share island spots. Dress warm people it’s freezing up there. Just the moment the sun comes up the background chanting is all magical. Breakfast was wonderful and a great end to an amazing experience. I would recommend this trip for all visitors.

Our guide, Preston, was very informative. He told us what to expect at top regarding the sunrise. At the top, it was very windy and very cold. I would highly recommend taking a heavy coat or blanket. The breakfast was very good. Probably the best on the island.
