Description

Enjoy a full-day Maui luxury tour that features a 30-minute helicopter ride to Mt Haleakala followed by a professionally guided tour in a luxury Limo-Van of the region around Haleakala National Park. Visit the towns of Paia and Makawao, Ho’okipa beach, an award-winning goat cheese dairy and an organic vodka distillery. Savor amazing views, tastings and tours along with plenty of time to explore the towns and soak up Hawaiian culture. A no-host breakfast stop and lunch are included on this tour, limited to six people to ensure a more customized experience with your knowledgeable guide.

After early morning pickup from your Maui hotel, relax aboard a luxury Limo-Van as you travel to the airport for your 30-minute helicopter flight.

Your expert pilot welcomes your small group aboard the deluxe, 6-seater helicopter and details the sights that you see as you head southeast to Haleakala National Park. Listen via a two-way radio communications system that also allows you to ask any questions.

When you reach the park, fly above Mt Haleakala to marvel at the crater, which measures 7 miles (11.25 km) across, 2 miles wide (3.2 km) and nearly 2,600 feet (800 meters) deep. As you soar over Maui’s natural wonders, enjoy amazing views of the volcanic landscape and sparkling ocean.

Back on the ground, reboard your Limo-Van and tour to Paia for a no-host breakfast at a popular restaurant (see Itinerary for sample menu). Then follow your guide through town to Ho’okipa beach, famous for windsurfing.

Next, continue by road to Makawao, a rustic paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town with an eclectic collection of shops. Enjoy about an hour to explore the boutiques and art galleries such as Viewpoints Gallery.

Tour about 20 minutes up the slopes of Mount Haleakala, taking in the gorgeous scenery as your guide talks about the history and geology of Hawaii. Stop at Surfing Goat Dairy where you'll  meet the goats, glimpse the dairy’s operations during a 20-minute walking tour and a tasting of their award-winning goat cheeses.

Go next door to Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery where you sit down for an alfresco Picnic lunch with linen tablecloths, napkins served on crystalline plates. Following your meal, enjoy a guided tour of the distillery while learning about its sustainable farming and green manufacturing processes. Soak in great views as you stroll past organic sugar cane fields and gardens, then wrap up your visit with a complimentary vodka tasting at the distillery.

After a day of exploring Maui's delights, your guide returns you to your hotel where your tour ends.
