Hana & Haleakala – Early Bird Helicopter Tour
This Hana & Haleakala – Early Bird Helicopter Tour offers generous views of Haleakala’s magnificent crater, travel through Maui’s most remote areas with views of Hana Town, the Seven Pools, fabulous coastline waterfalls, and world-famous Ho’okipa windsurfing beach on the return.
Climb above central Maui and ascend the world’s largest dormant volcano, “Haleakala” (literally “house of the sun”). Discover its immense moonlike crater with pure iron oxide cinder cones towering over 1,100 feet tall. See Kaupo and Ko’olau Gaps, the huge lava flows from the crater to the sea. Hana’s nearly uninhabited “backside” is home of the “Seven Pools” and Lindberg’s grave. The Hana Rain Forest extends for over 180 square miles along Maui’s northern coast and is the largest tropical rain forest in our nation. Tour includes views of Old Hana Town, Haleakala National Park, Kipahulu, the taro field of Ke’anae, fabulous coastline waterfalls and the world-famous Ho’okipa windsurfing beach on the return.
