WOW! So glad we got up! Book 30 days in advance to reserve your opportunity to get to the top of the mountain to enjoy the sunrise. It will cost you $1.50 to book online and $25 at the guard gate. If memory serves, they...More

You have to go to view the sunrise!!! You have to get up early and make sure you wear warm clothes (yes, even in Maui)--temps were in the low 40's! It was well worth the wait and the chill---so very beautiful. A definite must do!

I feel driving is a little easier than road to Hana. I did enjoy the diverse plants and views from the bottom to the summit. The summit is super unique and worth the driving. Sometimes you can see the cloud is moving and changing the...More

Plan ahead and get a pass from the park service to see the sunrise. Only so many people are allowed in the early morning hours. It's a long drive up the volcano so give yourself plenty of time. It is completely worth it as there...More

This was by far the best thing we did on Maui. Made waking up early totally worth it. We left Lahaina around 2:30am and got there super early. I'm glad we did because we missed all the traffic and the stars are amazing in the...More

A must see, if you want to know the history of volcanoes in Hawaii. Great views. You will see so many interesting things as you climb up the crater or you can just enjoy the spectacular views from the summit area. It takes about an...More

The park service has done a great job making it simple to view the sunrise at Haleakala. Sign on to the park service website and book your reservation in advance. (If you don't reserve in advance, you won't be admitted.) You'll receive a bar coded...More

Check the weather first, maybe when you're at the bottom. But don't let mid level clouds fool you - that will only make the sunset more spectacular! Absolutely amazing! We were able to find a parking space at the summit, but there were plenty of...More

I am spoiled having grown up near the Grand Canyon, so understand that it has taken me a long time to find a national park to impress me as much as Haleakala did today. We did our speed run up,the hill to see sunrise which...More

The drive was really long and slow. However, one at the top, it was so worth it! It looked like another world in the crater. It was such a beautiful day that we were even able to see the big island of Hawai'i! It's chilly...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We'd like to visit Haleakala but not drive there ourselves. Are there simple tour companies that can take us to/from our hotel? I am not inquiring about the sunrise tours where one must awake ~2:30. I'm hoping for a sunset tour or simply a daily visit.

Absolutely! The easiest way is to check with the concierge of your hotel / facility and they can make arrangements for cost and pick up. If your place does not have a concierge, there are numerous tour companies around... More

Do you have to hike around or are there lookouts with great views for photo ops? And can you drive to the top?

yes, you can drive all the way to the top. There is a nice "lookout" facility and restrooms, but no other services,so pack food and drink. Depending on the cloud cover there are many beautiful views. Hiking only if you... More
