The Road to Hana is one of the most talked about scenic drives in all of Hawaiʻi, and a big reason why people choose to visit Maui. Loaded with viewpoints and various points of interest, it’s the most popular way to explore the island’s eastern side, which is lightly populated and full of tropical rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails, and panoramic ocean views.
Because there are so many things to do and sights to see along the route, planning the trip yourself can be cumbersome. Besides, the road is narrow and winding at times and whoever is driving your vehicle will not be able to enjoy the ride as much as everybody else. This is why some people choose for an arranged tour of the Road to Hana.
Your tour starts with a cruise through historic Paia town where you learn about life in old Hawaii. Enjoy scenic ocean views and rugged coastlines as we traverse the road to Hana, known as one of the top 5 most beautiful drives in the world.
Along the way we’ll discover “the best banana bread on Maui” in a little community, built upon an ancient lava flow, where ancient Hawaiian farming, practices and cultural traditions still exist. Take a dip into a fresh waterfall pool along the Hana highway at Puaʻakaʻa state park. Learn about the historic value of this picturesque highway. Discover lava tubes and a guest favorite, black sand beach, and enjoy lunch at Waiʻānapanapa state park, swimming also available.
Important: All swimming opportunities are weather permitting.
Tour through the quaint town of Hana and learn of its foundation and history as we start our journey Beyond Hana. See the rainforest dissipate as we journey along the south side of Haleakala where the windswept slopes are visible due to lack of vegetation. Travel along a one-lane, seemingly kua’aina (backcountry) road and discover why rental cars aren’t allowed on this section of “highway”. Stop for scenic views of the Grand Canyon of Hana and journey down from the upcountry slopes of Haleakala.
