Haleakalā National Park

Haleakala National Park encompasses a dormant volcano and is rich in both ancient and modern Hawaiian culture. Featuring ethereal volcanic landscapes, gorgeous hiking trails, and rainforests, there is plenty to see at this magical destination.

Gorgeous place to see the sunrise. We enjoyed biking down once the sun came up. Awesome!

Absolutely breathtaking views—grab a spam musubi at the MinitStop on your way up and enjoy on the summit. Keep an eye peeled for the very rare, very unusual Argyroxiphium sandwicense / Silversword plants.

Revered as the ‘House of the Sun’ by the Early Hawaiians, mighty Haleakalā stands tall above the legendary beaches and resort towns of Maui that spread below. Peaking at over 10,000 feet, it’s a smoke-belching volcano that hisses and splutters and seethes across a Mars-like landscape of cinder cones and lava rocks. Go for a hike right on the cusp of the crater rim and keep your eyes peeled for the white domes of the Haleakalā Observatory, which makes the most of the crisp and cloudless skies to peer into the cosmos after dark.
