A Rare and Sacred Landscape

Haleakala National Park offers visitors the rare opportunity to walk down into the intact crater of a volcano.
Spend the 3rd (Thu) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's still lots to do: get impressive views of Haleakala Crater, see the top attractions with Haleakala Sunrise Tours, make a trip to Charles Lindbergh's Grave, and look for all kinds of wild species at Pools at Ohe'o.

For traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Haleakala National Park holiday maker site.

Vancouver, Canada to Haleakala National Park is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Vancouver to Haleakala National Park. When traveling from Vancouver in September, plan for much hotter days in Haleakala National Park, with highs around 38°C, while nights are somewhat warmer with lows around 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can catch the bus to Lahaina.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Visit Ka'anapali Beach and Kapalua Beach for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Kihei (Kalepolepo Beach Park, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more), Wailea (Makena Beach & Wailea Beach) and Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia). There's still lots to do: stroll around Lahaina Banyan Court, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, get engrossed in the history at Baldwin Home Museum, and take a stroll through Lahaina Front Street.

To find reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Lahaina trip itinerary planner.

You can take a bus from Haleakala National Park to Lahaina in 2 hours. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in September, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
