MAUI TOUR ROUTE MAP

What to Expect

Maui’s beauty is obvious, but when you uncover the stories, culture and history, you’ll truly connect with the Valley Isle.

Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all 4 corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise.  It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall.

Don’t even know where to begin?  We’ve suggest dividing Maui into 5 different areas and all of these are included in this tour. Do 1 area in a day, or combine 2 or more areas for a full day of sightseeing.

 

5 Areas To Explore On Maui;

Road to Hana GyPSy Guide Audio Driving Tour App

Road to Hana

The Road to Hana is one of the world’s most scenic drives and the most famous drive on Maui. As you wind you way around the bottom of Maui 10,000 foot volcano, the drive is rich with waterfallsblack sand beachesbamboo forestslava rock formations and amazing ocean views as you wind your way through 620 curves and 59 bridges.

With such a long day of exploring and very few signs along the way, it’s important to know the 5 “not to be missed” stops, and the many more suggestions if you have time.  Part of the secret to enjoying the journey is knowing how not to waste your time, and we have tips for that as well.

On the return drive from Hana, we’ll point out the not to be missed stops again as well as tell you stories about Hawaii’s fascinating history and rich culture.

Haleakala National Park GyPSy Guide Driving Tour App

Haleakala Crater

Make your way up to Haleakala Crater for a sunrise, sunset or a midday view you won’t soon forget.

Climb above the clouds to a Mars-like landscape with cinder cones, silverswords, endangered Nene geese, views of the Pacific Ocean and other Hawaiian Islands from 10,000 feet.  We’ll share stories of how the Islands have formed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, both from Hawaiian mythology and our modern explanations.

On the way we’ll tour through the upcountry Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town of Makawao and have the opportunity to visit art galleries, gift stores and of course great dining choices as we transition from the beach, to fertile farmlands, to the rocky cinders above the treeline.

West Maui

This part of the island is a popular choice for the resort areas of Ka’anapali, Kapalua, Lahaina.  As we explore West Maui we’ll have magnificent views across the water to Maui’s other islands, punctuated by whales breeching during the season; December to April.

West Maui has many very calm and gentle beaches where you can swim, try stand up paddle boarding, surfing and excellent snorkelling.  Explore further around the coast to Maui’s best blowhole Nakalele on the rugged and lava rock windward side of the island.

Iao Valley

Tucked into a volcanic valley of central Maui is the Iao Valley and its photogenic volcanic rock needle. It’s unique location makes it one of the wettest places on the planet and it’s a fascinating drive quickly into lush forest that receives an average 1 inch of rain every day.

Also an important culturally important place in Hawaiian history and celebrates Maui’s incredible diversity of cultures at the Kepaniwai Park.  Add a side trip to Iao Valley if you are exploring West Maui, South Maui, or even Haleakala on the same day.

South Maui

Heading to the sunny and dry south Maui, we’ll first drive through the lively vacation area of Kihei with its family friendly beaches and snorkelling from the shore. Continue south to the swanky resorts of Wailea, but everyone is welcome to enjoy the cove beaches and even snorkel in turtle towns. Join locals and visitors “in the know” at the sandy beaches of Makena.

Keep following to the end of the road to see the location of Maui’s last lava flow which reshaped the coastline.

No. Only the free GPS signal is needed while driving.
