First Light Summit Tour - Maui Downhill
You will view the first light of a new day as you journey across Maui's central valley and ascend Haleakala. As the sun rises, you enter Haleakala National Park and proceed to the summit. Here you will view the spectacular 3,000 foot deep crater floor with cinder cones, volcanic features and tour the House of the Sun visitor center. Learn about the history of the volcano and your National Park, visit the silversword plants, native endangered species and birds that have made Haleakala their permanent home. After touring the park, your bicycle tour begins at the 6,500 foot elevation outside the park. Your guides will go over a comprehensive safety briefing, including bicycle safety regulations and tour guidelines. As the bicycle safari begins, you will gently descend the 21 switchbacks on the western slopes of the world's largest resting volcano. There will be photo stops along your journey. Relax at a no host rest and lunch stop at the lavender garden. Bike through eucalyptus forests and the upcountry community of Kula, with beautiful jacaranda tree lined roadways that offer bicoastal views. The end of the bicycle portion of your tour is near Pukalani. Enjoy a van tour from Pukalani to the sea, with information and history of Maui's sugar cane and pineapple plantation days.
