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.

Kula

kula maui

Maui’s rich farming and ranching history is still evident by vast pastures that line the side of the mountain. Kula’s cool weather and rich volcanic soil, makes the area an ideal spot for a number of Lavender, Protea, and Macadamia Nut farms.

 

Makawao

Makawao Maui

The Hawaiian Cowboys or Paniolos have roots set deep in the town of Makawao. This small town still has hitching rails at store fronts just as the locals once used to tie up their horses.

 

Paia

Paia Maui

Today Paia is a popular surf destination, however Paia’s history is as intriguing as it is fascinating. Learn about how the Sugar Plantations shaped this town and the culture of the island, and how this small north shore town was once a gathering place for entertainment and fun.

 

Haiku

Haiku Maui

Like Paia, Haiku has its roots in agriculture. The Pineapple industry built this small, rural town, with the pineapple cannery as the center of action. Haiku also played a pivotal part in World War 2 by being the home of the Fourth Division Marines during the 1940’s.

 

Waikapu

dinner in waikapu

You’ll enjoy a 5 star meal at the Mill House Restaurant with incredible views of the Waikapu Valley and Maui Tropical Plantation lagoon.

*Locations, attractions, and activities are subject to weather conditions.  

Ancient Hawaii

The impressive voyaging skills of early Polynesians changed the course of history by spreading their culture across the Pacific. Learn about this ancient evolving people and culture and the myths and legends that inspired them. From the first arrival of the Marquesans, to the second wave of Tahitians, see how they established a civilization and birthed monarchies, including the Kamehameha dynasty which united the Hawaiian Islands.

 

The Night Sky

After the Sun sets, the stars come out to play. The night sky played significant part in Hawaiian history, as the ancient Polynesians used the stars to guide their voyaging canoes across the Pacific. The low light pollution and year round good weather on Maui has made Haleakalā a world renowned location for astronomy and viewing the night sky.
