Description

Capture that quintessential Hawaiian sunset from atop Mt Haleakala, Maui's 10,000-foot-high (3,050-meter) volcanic peak in Haleakala National Park. Most visitors head up the volcano to see the sunrise, so why not consider an evening spectacle instead to watch the celestial display bathe its light over Maui's lowlands? On your way, visit the Kula Lodge Marketplace with your guide, and then after the sunset, enjoy a 3-course meal at Cafe O'Lei at the Dunes — the perfect way to complete a day in paradise.

After hotel pickup, settle into your air-conditioned coach and enjoy panoramic views out the wide windows as you head up to the summit of Mt Haleakala (aka East Maui Volcano). En route, your driver-guide makes a stop at the Kula Lodge Marketplace where you can experience the art and culinary talents of Maui and Hawaii's renowned artists and craftsmen.

When the coach reaches Haleakala National Park, it makes another stop at the Park Headquarters Visitor Center, located 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) above sea level. Enjoy views of the magnificent scenery before you re-board the bus for the final stretch, nearing the volcano's summit at 9,740 feet (2,969 meters). Here, peek into the massive crater and visit the Haleakala Visitor Center.

As dusk approaches, watch the cascading colors of sunset spread over the stark volcanic landscape and subtropical rainforest of Maui's lowlands. Search for neighboring Hawaiian Islands in the distance as the sun descends into the Pacific and creates a warm glow across the sky.

Afterward, head to Cafe O'Lei at the Dunes, located on The Dunes Golf Course in central Maui, for a 3-course dinner that includes meat and vegetarian/vegan dishes. Your evening tour then ends with hotel drop-off.

  • Portuguese bean soup
