Start your day in Maui with a breathtaking sunrise view of the island from atop its highest peak on this daybreak excursion to Mount Haleakala. This exceptional sunrise experience is sure to be a highlight of your trip to Maui.

Start your trip in the dark of the very early morning with a pickup at your Maui hotel. You’ll then continue by air-conditioned minibus on a scenic drive passing the Kula District. and Maui’s rare silversword plants.

Arriving at the Haleakala National Park, steadily climb by minibus up Haleakala to 9,740 feet elevation to the Visitor Center. You’ll see Maui’s rare and endemic silversword plants that poignantly bloom once, then perish. You’ll also witness the sunrise from the Visitor Center area. The views from Haleakala are nothing short of spectacular. Writer Mark Twain, upon visiting the peak in 1866, wrote that the volcano was “the most sublime spectacle I ever witnessed and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Observe the first rays of the new day slowly creep across the distant horizon. Soon the sky fills with the majestic glow of the new day, and the warm beams of light creep across the island of Maui, illuminating the land below. It’s a sight you’re sure to remember for many years to come.

At the end of your morning sunrise experience you’ll head to breakfast at a local restaurant and then receive a drop-off back at your Maui hotel, tired but thrilled by your amazing morning trip.

Highly recommend!
, Oct 2021
I didn’t upload the pic of the sun actually in the sky because my husband is in it but I have pictures of 4-5 different sky colors, each looking more stunning that the last. Preston was an amazing tour guide and stuck it out for a bit after sunrise so that the thick fog and clouds would pass for us to actually get some incredible views. Preston also taught us so much about the island during our bus ride. The breakfast was awesome too! 10/10 do recommend

The entire trip from start to finish was phenomenal!!! Wayne, our driver was excellent and very informative regarding Maui and sites to visit! Haleakala was breathtaking to view the many colors of the sunrise so far above the clouds and breakfast at Kula Lodge was absolutely as wonderful as the visit to the top of Haleakala. Their breakfast delicious and the little gazebos to eat in along with their beautiful garden and waterfalls were gorgeous!! Such a wonderful surprise if a tour!!!
Spectacular Sunrise
, Oct 2021
It was a great experience. Our driver Dino was funny & informative, the bus was clean & comfortable and especially loved the outlets & usb plugs at each seat! Let me preface by saying that the Kula Lodge was a picturesque location for breakfast, but thought the food choices could be better and didn’t like that they try to rush you out. Even though this is one of Viators pricier tours…and you really don’t get much, it is definitely worth it to do it once. This is my 4th booking in the past 2 years with Viator, and their Efficiency and customer service never disappoint.
A bucket list must on Maui!
, Oct 2021
Our tour director, Wayne was exceptional. His knowledge of the island of Maui is unbelievable! I might add he’s a great bus driver also. One of my favorite excursions of all times. The trip was worth all the effort of getting up at 2:30 am . The sunset was more than I ever imagined on Haleakala . Thank you Haleakala Maui sunrise tour with breakfast!
Worth every penny
, Oct 2021
The views were breathtaking. Once in a lifetime experience seeing the sun rise from the clouds. From the beginning to the end, Preston made this a premium experience. He shared fact and funny stories, deftly balancing the time to talk and the quiet time for guests to enjoy the scenery and/or rest. Take care to pack warm hooded coats and pants because it is COLD!! You will be thankful you packed gloves too especially if you plan on taking pictures. It’s a long windy road so take something if you are susceptible to motion sickness.
Beautiful experience, worth the early morning
, Oct 2021
It was a very magical experience. It can be cold and windy up there. Bring a jacket and warm hat. You won't regret packing the extra bulk!
Beautiful sunrise, good breakfast, great driver
, Oct 2021
Wayne was our driver and was very informative as well as entertaining. He picked us up and time, provided tons of background info during the drive and got us back to our condo safe and sound. The actual sunrise and scenery was outstanding and well worth getting up early in the morning for. A must see! Also, the breakfast at the Kula Lodge was very good.
An early but worthwhile experience in Haleakala
, Oct 2021
A wonderful time at Haleakala with Alfredo. Though the day obviously started early, the guide kept us on schedule and was entertaining. I appreciated the regular bathroom stops also. A must visit excursion when on Maui for sure.
Great tour, mind your clothing.
, Oct 2021
The tour was great. Thanks to driver he did everything to make our trip a memorable one. But it was so windy and freezing cold. One hour in that wind was like going through hypothermia. I wish we had heavy jackets with hood and gloves. I wish tour operators can give some early warning of type of weather to expect. Light jackets are not suitable for this type of wind and cold. I saw some other tour operators distributing blankets to their clients . I wish our tour operators did that too.
