the following list of our suggestions on the top ways to sightsee in Maui:
Top Ways to Sightsee in Maui
- Go by horse. You don't have to be a cowboy to enjoy the advantages of a horseback tour. Several
large, 800+ acre ranches call Maui home and offer premium horseback riding tours through their rugged
backcountry and out into some of the most scenic viewpoints on the island. Take for instance the
Makena Stables' Sunset Tour
where riders of every skill level will enjoy meandering down winding trails that overlook La Perouse
Bay, the turquoise blue ocean and remote hills on the back side of Haleakala.
- Go by foot. Those who prefer to hoof it have a whole host of tours and trails to choose from.
One popular pick is
Twin Falls, a string of waterfalls and pool located along the Road to Hana. This 2-mile hike
can be done solo or via a guided tour. Other popular sightseeing hikes include trails at the Iao Valley
State Park in Central Maui and the 5-mile Waihee Ridge Trail in Wailuku. For a day adventure, be sure
to check out Haleakala and its many rates. Bike enthusiasts ought to check in with the on-site Haleakala
Bike Company and its tour, during which guests are driven to the summit just at sunrise before biking
- Go by car. The Twin Falls aren't the only waterfalls to be found along the Road to Hana. This
historic 65-mile road is a sightseeing must for those who want a fun-filled, adventure-packed journey.
The one caveat here is, plan for this to take at least a day, maybe even two. The Road to Hana is not
meant to be traversed quickly with its many sharp turns, 59 narrow bridges and natural beauty. Those who
particularly want to see more of Maui's wild side should pack a tent and camp at the
Seven Sacred Pools in Kipahulu.
- Go by helicopter. It is hard to get a true sense of the sheer magnitude of Maui's waterfalls,
the beauty of its shorelines and the rich colors of its landscapes from the ground. Such an experience
of Maui must be done from the skies via a Maui helicopter
tour. Join your loved ones on the adventure of a lifetime by flying over Maui's epic landscapes.
The Hana Rainforest Experience, a
one-of-a-kind immersive Hawaiian experience, is a breathtaking tour featuring not only incredible
bird’s-eye views of Maui's fantastic sea cliffs, waterfalls and verdant rainforest, but it also includes
a descent and landing for a personal ground exploration of a former taro plantation in Wailua Valley.
