One of Maui’s most incredible experience is a bike ride down Haleakala volcano.
Rated as one of the top activities on Maui, biking down Haleakala volcano can be one of the most spectacular experiences you will ever do. Starting well before sunrise, you will see the sun come up at an incredible altitude.
There’s a variety of downhill bike tours available, and all the bike tour companies are reputable with good safety records.
Bike Down Haleakala Suggestion:
I recommend a tour that takes you to the top of Haleakala for a sunrise experience. This will be one of the most thrilling sites you will ever experience. Then the tour van will take you downhill several miles to the edge of Haleakala National Park at 6,500 feet, where you will begin your 23-25 mile bike tour.
