Description

from Maui Haleakala Crater and Rainforest Day Tour
This unique package offers the opportunity to experience the wide variety of Maui’s diverse scenery - from Haleakala National Park, an exotic protea farm and paniolo “cowboy” country to the Hana Coast rainforest, waterfalls & a famous windsurfing beach - all in one day. Beginning with complimentary pick-up between 7:00 am & 7:30 am and then touring through the Central Valley, in one of our exclusive, 6 to 8 guest, Luxury Limo-Vans, we begin this Adventure in Paradise with a lite morning snack.

Start the day “on top the world” at the pinnacle of Haleakala National Park at 10,023 feet. The “House of the Sun” visitor’s center offers breathtaking panoramas from the rim of the crater. There are many photo opportunities while descending this scenic mountain drive. View cattle and dairy ranches on the way to the Hawaiian paniolo cowboy town of Makawao. This unique town still has hitching posts, from back when horses were more common than cars. Today this quaint village is home to quite an eclectic group of little shops and boutiques.

Enjoy a bountiful Upcountry Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch. After lunch, travel east through Ha’iku, where the grass is always a beautiful emerald green and bountiful avocados, citrus, bananas and exotic tropical flowers grow. After leaving Ha’iku, experience the spectacular Hana Coast rainforest. Visit Ke’anae, a traditional Hawaiian farming community, in which little has changed in the last 500 years. The return journey takes us to Ho’okipa Beach Park, the “windsurfing capital of the world.” Photo opportunities abound as these windsurfers really put on an aquatic show.

Tour Returns: 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm.

Haleakala Crater & Rainforest Full Day Tour Includes: Luxury Limo-Van with only 6 - 8 Guests, Certified Guide Narrated 9 -10 hour Tour, Lite Morning Snack and Upcountry Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch, Entrance Fee to Haleakala National Park, Protea Garden tour or Waterfall Swim, & unlimited ice-cold drinks.

"Hana Sky Trek was a great way to do the Road to Hana"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We did the Hana Sky Trek opting for the morning ride to Hana and the helicopter ride back to the helipad. Gary was our guide on the drive to Hana and provided a lot of information along the way pointing out everything from island history to tree species. The drive included several stops for photo ops, banana bread and a dip at a waterfall. After making it to Hana we were served lunch along the shores of a black sand beach. After lunch and making one last stop at the black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park we headed to the Hana airport (a charming little thing that is just what you'd expect it to look like in this remote location). Once at the airport it was only a couple of minutes until the Blue Hawaiian Helicopter that would be our ride out landed dropping off the next group that Gary would be taking from Hana on the drive out. The helicopter ride, while short, was great and provided a chance to see plenty of waterfalls and valleys that you would not be able to see otherwise and that I imagine may never have been visited by foot. We were able to take some pretty neat photos. After seeing the road to Hana from the passenger seat of this luxury van I now know that yes, you can drive the road to Hana on your own and you would have more time at each stop, but honestly I'm not sure I would want the same 3 hour drive back which is why the sky trek tour was worth every penny My advice for those thinking of doing the sky trek is to take the morning drive, you'll do the drive first and the helicopter flight will have you back shortly after lunch giving you nearly the entire day to do other activities. Suggestions for Temptations would be to include a stop at the Hana General store, we drove past but did not stop at this store and a couple of shops that looked like they would have been a great spot to shop for something from Hana. Only 2 of the 5 people in our van took a short dip at the waterfall and the stops along the road were pretty quick, Gary kept us on a tight schedule and we didn't linger so I don't think it was that we took too much time elsewhere. We will come to Maui again, it is unlikely that we will take another drive to Hana so we can't help but to feel like we may have missed a keepsake from one of the shops.

"Hana Sky-Trek What a fantastic experience."

There was an issue of weight regarding the helicopter balance. Temptation Tours reached out to me via all methods of communication days before the flight. The issue was resolved and were we confirmed. Nice communication on their part. In our party of 4 two were uncomfortable with heights. Both were experienced plane travelers so trusted the science. The pilot was good at making sure protocols were understood and double checking passengers were secure. Dylan the pilot explained the geology, history and culture as we went from sea level to 10,000 feet in a short time. We flew over the crater, along beaches, into valleys. It was great. A driver with a wonderfully comfortable limo bus picked us up at the Hana airport. A nice six seater with seating like airline first class. He laid out a sumptuous lunch at the harbor with a tasty lunch. We proceeded back over the mountains through 6oo turns and 55 one lane bridges. This is definitely a road to be driven on as it is a tedious drive (having done it round trip in the past.). If I were driving I would have missed some beautiful scenery. People have told me for years that if I was able to see Hawaii from the air. They were absolutely right.
