Must Do

The bike ride down Mount Haleakala is an absolute MUST for thrill seekers and/or scenic enthusiasts! This was truly one of the most exciting experiences of my life.

Great Guides

Tomas played his Ukelele and gave us a bunch of history and fun facts. Strong emphasis on safety which was great and nice ride down. We didn’t do sunrise – too early for me. Stopped in paia post ride to grab lunch and shop. Having the van follow us down the mountain made it feel safer. Wear layers for sure and it is cold at the top.
