800-525-MAUI (6284) 27 FOR EARLY BIRDS: Meaning "House of the Sun," Haleakalā is the ideal pinnacle from which to greet the morning. Experience true beauty as it lights the sky with new shades of color each dawn. On a clear day, look out for the neighboring islands of Hawai'i, Lāna'i, Moloka'i, O'ahu and Kaho'olawe for an unforgettable Maui memory. FOR NATURE ENTHUSIASTS: To observe unique flora and fauna, take a guided hike along Haleakalā's protected trails. See rare 'āhinahina (silversword) plants along the volcanic rock or maybe even an endangered nēnē (Hawaiian goose), Hawai'i's state bird. FOR THRILL-SEEKERS: At 6,500 feet, descend the summit on a mountain bike for 20 miles of electrifying and scenic excitement. Tours begin outside the park for those looking for an extreme rush. Heads up---you will go very fast! FOR LOVERS: The sunset atop Haleakalā exudes passion and romance as night arrives through an epic display of hues and shadows. The moon and stars light the clear sky, unclouded by city lights. FOR ADVENTURERS: For a complete excursion of Haleakalā, don't forget to explore the base of the park, in the Kīpahulu area. Even arrange a camping trip so you don't miss out on any of what the "House of the Sun" has to offer. Haleakalā Just because this dormant volcano isn't erupting doesn't mean excitement is inactive here. Whatever your ideal vacation, there are lots of ways for everyone to enjoy Haleakalā National Park.
