Experience essential Maui on this laid-back journey showcasing nature’s finery, historic landmarks, and charming country towns. Haleakala is truly magnificent in the daytime hours; bathed in sunlight which brings its steep slopes to center stage and when endemic wildlife freely roams the landscape. Leisurely observe Nene geese in their native habitat and discover the secret of the rare Silversword plant.
After a short walk past a meandering stream through a forest full of native Hawaiian plants, gaze high above at the iconic Iao Needle – a natural outcropping jutting from the mountain side; covered in emerald green vegetation and towering 1,200 feet over Iao valley. The valley is rich in history as a former ancient burial site for Hawaii’s royalty.
End the day at historic Lahaina Town, a former whaling village and hot spot for locals and visitors alike. Enjoy lunch on your own at a shore front eatery and browse unique shops and art galleries. Known for its sunny weather and relaxed vibe, Lahaina is the place to be.
