Enjoy spectacular views and get up close to Haleakala Crater.
Journey to the highest point on the island, the magnificent Haleakala Crater. At 10,032 feet above sea level, this incredible crater could accommodate Manhattan Island with room to spare while stacking the Empire State Building four times without reaching the top!
As you wind your way up the banks of the mighty Haleakala you’ll stop at the Rangers Station. At 10,000 feet you are almost at the summit and the perfect place to get some fabulous photographs. Reaching Haleakala National Park the panoramic views from the summit are spectacular. Last erupting in 1790, the astonishing crater of this dormant volcano measures 7½ miles long, 2½ miles wide, 21 miles in diameter and 3,000 feet deep, covering 19 square miles. From your viewpoint you'll appreciate firsthand the unique beauty of this colossal crater.
After working up an appetite, what better way to unwind than by enjoying lunch at the Maui Tropical Plantation.
Note: Please bring a warm jumper/jacket as temperatures can drop dramatically at the summit. Due to climatic changes views may be obscured at any time and cannot be guaranteed. Comfortable shoes are recommended, as there is approximately 45 minutes walking over paved surfaces and some rough ground.
