For help planning your day check out our Sunrise at Haleakala National Park suggested itinerary and here's everything you need to know before you go.
It depends on the time of year, but sunrise in the winter (October-March) is between 6:15 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and in the summer (April-September) it’s between 5:45 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. We recommend you double check the night before your visit.
Please note, if you’re staying in West Maui at one of the resorts in Lahaina, Kaanapali or Kapalua it takes about 45 minutes to reach the start of the tour in Kahului and then about an hour to reach the summit — plan for two hours of travel time.
How much you spend really depends on the activities you choose to do along the tour route, but here’s a breakdown of some costs.
You can book a sunrise reservation for Haleakala up to seven days in advance here. Please note, you do NOT need a reservation to see the sunset, just the sunrise.
