Tour Highlights

Haleakala EcoTours Sunrise Over Crater

As an AUTHORIZED PARTNER with Haleakalā National Park, Haleakalā EcoTours will treat you to Maui’s premier Haleakalā Tour. Some call Haleakalā the Eighth Wonder of the World. Nowhere else can you climb from sea level to 10,023′ in less than an hour. At the summit, the 3,000′ deep crater you peer down into is 7 miles long, 2 miles wide, and 21 miles in circumference.

Encounter the elegant Silversword plant, found nowhere else in the world as well as Hawaii’s state bird, the Nene goose. Haleakalā is home to hundreds of rare and endangered species of plants and animals. Learn the importance of protecting their habitats and upholding the National Park mission of Preservation and Conservation.
