Maui Land Activities

Maui Land Activities

Sugar Cane Train

With a blast of its whistle, the locomotive chugs along a 6 mile stretch of track at a leisurely pace. During your train ride, the Sugar Cane train crosses a 325 foot curved wooden track with panoramic views of neighboring islands and the West Maui Mountains. During your journey, the conductor will entertain you and point out sites of interest along the way.

Maui Ocean Center

Road to Hana

The Road to Hana winds through tropical rainforests, past waterfalls, around pools and past bamboo forests ending in beautiful Hana. The Road to Hana is all about the journey – not just the destination. Many people prefer not to drive the 620 curves and 59 bridges on their own. For those who would rather have someone else do all the work, enjoy a fully guided tour. You will be picked up from Kaanapali Alii and driven in a luxury, air conditioned van - all you have to do is relax and enjoy the view.

If you are looking for a less time-consuming option, or just like the idea of two popular Maui activities in one - take a drive / fly tour. With this unique activity, your guide will meet you at the Kahului Heliport, where you will take a 6-passenger Limo-van 53 miles to Hana. In Hana, guests are served lunch on one of Hana’s black sand beaches. After lunch, a helicopter will return you by flying the reverse leg over the rainforest and Haleakala Crater.

 

Maui Hiking Tour

There are miles of great hiking trails on Maui: Kapalua Hiking Trails, Crater Trail and Sliding Sands in Haleakala National Park, Twin Falls in Haiku and so many more. While most trails are open to self-guided hikers, guided tours are led by hiking guides who are well-versed in Maui’s history and natural features to ensure that the narrative is interesting and educational.

 

Helicopter Tours

Only a very small portion of Maui is accessible to the casual traveler if you want to see all of the Island’s beauty, a Maui helicopter tour is the only way to truly witness it. Explore the lush West Maui Mountains, views of Haleakala's magnificent crater or whale watch (in season) across the Pailolo channel to discover Hawaii's tallest waterfalls along Molokai's remote and isolated north shore.

 

Zipline

Enjoy a funfilled adventure that you will never forget. There are a variety of different zipline options all over Maui: expereince a thrilling adventure soaring over gulches or tropical plantations or valleys, streams and waterfalls.
