Haleakala

Haleakala Volcano

http://www.nps.gov/hale/index.htm

Haleakala in Hawaiian means “House of the Sun”. This active but non-erupting volcano stands in the middle of the Haleakala National Park — offering hiking, sightseeing, horseback riding, downhill biking and unforgettable sunrises (and sunsets, of course).

Maui Tropical Plantation

This 120-acre preserve is a working plantation, entertainment center and an amusing crash course in Hawaiian agriculture. Enjoy a guided tram ride through fields of sugar cane, pineapple, coffee, bananas, mangoes, papayas, avocado, star fruit and macadamia nuts. But that’s not all! Check out the chocolate and soap factory, champagne bar, ziplining, country store and much more.

‘Iao Valley is a dramatic landscape with deep ravines, and was the site of one of the most famous battles in Hawaiian history — when King Kamehameha conquered the Maui army to unite all the Hawaiian Islands. Walking paths take you through lush vegetation and cool streams. Get there early for the best view of ‘Iao Needle — the clouds set in by mid-afternoon.
