What you'll do

I will meet you in the hippest town on island, Paia. It’s the surfer town with the great restaurants and shopping. From there we will ascend to the summit of Haleakala at 10000 feet. It’s cold on top but, don’t worry if you don’t have winter gear, I have jackets, gloves , and windpants. We will hit the summit and all of the lookouts and grab some amazing photos and I will share with you the magic of Haleakala. We will then drop down thru Makawao and check out this quaint cowboy town before heading back to Paia. You might want to grab a bite to eat at the world famous Charlie’s bar or grab some snacks at the best health food store on the island, Mana foods.
