Start your Maui vacation with a traditional Hawaiian lei greeting upon arrival to the Kahului Airport. Transfer to your hotel. Known as “The Valley Isle,” Maui is the second largest Hawaiian island. Known for its world-famous beaches, the sacred Iao Valley, views of migrating humpback whales (during winter months), farm-to-table cuisine and the magnificent sunrise and sunset from Haleakala, it is not surprising that Maui has been consistently voted as one of the world's most beautiful islands.
Enjoy your resort’s amenities and surroundings during the day. In the evening, consider a visit of the idyllic town of Lahaina, the former Hawaiian capital offering historic architecture combined with modern-day charms. Enjoy dinner on own with the catch of the day at one of the local restaurants. (B)
Today enjoy a visit of Hana. During the approximately 2.5 hours ride you will have an opportunity to enjoy plenty of sights along the way: cascading waterfalls, the Garden of Eden Arboretum, Wai’anapanapa State Park with volcanic black sand beaches, and finally Hana Town. Stroll through this traditional Hawaiian village and enjoy a local lunch at one of the restaurants before heading back to your hotel. (B, L)
Today, enjoy a visit of Turtle Town, one of the most popular and recommended snorkeling destinations in all of Maui. Located conveniently along Maui’s south shore, Turtle Town is a wonderful place to witness a wide variety of marine life, some of which is endemic to Hawaiian waters and found nowhere else on Earth. Enjoy one of the many activities before heading back to your hotel. In the late afternoon, a Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise guarantees not only a luau feast with tropical cocktails and dinner, but also panoramic views of Maui’s coastline and the outer islands of Lanai and Molokai. (B, D)
Today experience the island’s authentic paniolo (cowboy) culture on one of the ranches in Upcountry. After your horseback ride along waterfalls and rainforests, we will drive to the area of Kula to visit one of its organic farms. The serene farmland with vibrant colors is where Maui’s local produce like herbs, coffee, and flowers is grown. Afterwards, we head further up Haleakala Highway to Maui’s only winery at Ulupalakua Ranch where we will enjoy a wine tasting with panoramic views. (B)
Days at leisure to unwind and relax at your resort’s spa and to enjoy exclusive treatments. You might want to lace up your hiking boots and venture 10,000 feet up to Mt. Haleakala Crater, one of the two volcanoes forming Maui, or to Haleakala National Park, which offers birds-eye views of the Maui central valley and its unique flora and fauna. (B)
Transfer to the airport for your return flight home, or extend your stay.
