The day begins with complimentary pick-up between 7:00 am & 7:30 am. Touring in the air-conditioned comfort of an exclusive, 6 - 8 guest, Luxury Limo-Van, takes us to Pa’ia for a lite morning snack. Afterward, it’s a leisurely mountain drive to Haleakala National Park and the crater summit. Ascend to the “House of the Sun” visitor’s center to let the crisp air awaken your senses to the breathtaking panoramas of the crater. Photograph multi-island views atop the 10,023 ft. summit and picture frame the moment forever. Pu’u Ula Ula, (Red Hill), affords 360-degree views of the Big Island of Hawai’i, West Maui and Lana’i and Moloka’i.
Descend Haleakala to the serene gardens of Ali’i Kula Lavender. Explore the fields of lavender that grow all year round. The fresh and invigorating fragrance will fill your senses and uplift the spirit. Best of all, visit the studio gift shop and discover over 75 quality products and gifts, directly from the gardens, made from Lavender & Aloha, just for you.
Enjoy our Pacific Rim Cuisine Luncheon and learn about lavender, a mystical and mysterious herb.
Your journey continues past rolling green pastures, serene mountain vistas and the seascapes below, to the Ulupalakua Ranch and Tedeschi Vineyards. This Historic ranch was visited by King Kalakaua and Queen Kapi’olani in 1874. Known then as the Rose Ranch, it was famed for its hospitality and agricultural prowess. The King’s cottage still stands and is currently the Winery’s Tasting Room. We invite you to sip some of the Ulupalakua wine and “taste the sun, the soft evening fog and hold one hundred years of history in your glass."
The Summit Lavender Sojourn continues with a visit to the Hawaiian paniolo, “cowboy” town of Makawao. There’s plenty of time to stroll and explore this and historic place. Visit Viewpoints Gallery, operated exclusively by Maui artists, Hot Island Glass, the only glass blowing studio on Maui or a number of other fine, locally owned shops. Come along with Temptation Tours to “Discover another World on the slopes of Haleakala.”
