Set out for an early morning island excursion with a sunrise tour to the peak of Haleakala, Maui's sleeping volcano. Travel by van to the 10,023-foot (3,055-m) summit to experience Haleakala National Park at dawn, and take in sweeping island vistas from the Pu'u Ula'ula Overlook.

After your pre-dawn hotel pickup, energize with coffee and pastries as you make your way to Haleakala National Park, where you ascend 38 miles (61 km) to the top of Haleakala, known in ancient Hawaiian as "House of the Sun." Listen to your guide recount local Hawaiian legends and myths surrounding the volcano.

Once at the summit, catch the sun as it peeks over the horizon, offering you a mesmerizing sunrise scene. Oranges, yellows, and blues collide to create a kaleidoscope of color that lights up the whole island, including the Big Island in the distance.

At the Pu'u Ula'ula Overlook, admire the stunning panoramas of the lava fields, and peer down the 3,000-foot (914-me) drop into Haleakala's cavernous crater. While you explore, keep your eyes peeled for silversword, a spherical, silver-haired plant only found on the island of Maui at elevations above 6,900 feet (2,103 m).

Take a moment to stop by the Visitor's Center and marvel at the surrounding natural beauty as you descend Haleakala to enjoy a full breakfast at 1 of Maui's restaurants.

We had a spectacular view of the sunrise over the

rim of the volcano. It was crystal clear and the sun broke over the clouds overlooking the big island along the horizon. It was very cold, so bring winter clothes. Gloves and hand warmers are a must.. but well worth it. We had extremely knowledgeable driver who made the long early morning trek interesting and we learned so much. Simply awesome experience!

Wayne was a great bus driver and tour guide

I had breakfast 'B' and the food was cold. Other than that had good time.
