One Day Maui "Valley Island" Tour
This is a tour that delights all your senses. As you travel towards some of Maui’s most breathtaking locations, you pass through rainforests and waterfalls in the cooler, wetter regions, and volcanic areas and dramatic foliage in Maui's drier spots. There are spectacular ocean views along portions of the route.
A long, ascending road through horse farms and towering eucalyptus groves takes you to Haleakala National Park. You'll visit the spectacular volcanic crater, Mt. Haleakala, which in Hawaiian means "House of the Rising Sun." At an altitude of 10,023 feet, you are literally above the clouds. You’ll even be able to see Mauna Loa volcano on the neighboring Big Island. (Climbing to this altitude is generally not recommended for people with heart conditions or those prone to altitude sickness. A 24-hour wait period is also recommended for anyone that has recently been scuba diving).
Then it is on to Iao Valley, where King Kamehameha defeated Maui's army, and the Iao Needle, a massive, tree-covered lava formation that towers above the valley floor at a height of 2,250 feet. You'll also visit Lahaina Town, a 19th century whaling village. Lahaina is also known for its popular restaurants, boutiques and galleries, which you’ll have plenty of time to explore when you stop here for lunch.
Please note: Effective immediate, the Iao Valley State Monument will be closed to traffic due to damage suffered from heavy rain and flooding for an indefinite period of time. The Maui Tropical Plantation will be substituted.
