Overview

Watching the sunrise at Haleakala Crater is a note-to-be-missed experience, which is only made better by hopping on a bike and riding back down to the beach. Begin early with a pre-dawn pickup before making the winding journey in the dark to the 10,023 ft. summit. As the horizon begins to slowly turn red, then gradually to orange and yellow, the lunar beauty of Haleakala Crater begins to come into view. After the sun has crested the eastern horizon and bathed the crater in light, ride back down to the national park boundray.
  • Watch the sunrise from Haleakala Crater
  • Ride a bike down a dormant volcano
  • Explore the towns of Makawao and Kula
  • Receive instruction from a professional guide
  • All transport, safety, and bike gear provided

Our tour guide was great! He made the tour so much fun! We loved the bike ride. It went by almost too quickly! What an experience to get to the bottom of the mountain and think you started your day at the summit and traveled all the down. The highlight of our Maui trip! Thank you for an amazing tour! The summit is freezing and the winds strong. Pack winter hats and mittens. You’ll be thankful you did. My summer clothes and light jacket didn’t hold up to those low temps!

The sunrise was spectacular and the guides from the bus ride up to the top and the bike ride down were excellent. The stories they shared about the history and living on Maui made the experience really memorable.

I love the trip I wish I could remember the woman who runs the office and drives the van because I loved her I wanted to say her name is Lena but it probably isn’t I also want to give a shout out to Billy he’s so cute and made everybody feel really special especially me because I was scared of the speed on the way down and he put me up front with him so the whole team is amazing I can’t say enough I will do it again five stars 20 stars !!!

Ride in the van if you’re scared!
Arriane_E
, Apr 2022
If you’re scared of the bike ride, you can ride in the van no problem. In fact, it’s safer for you and all the other riders if you ride in the van when you’re unsure. Sunrise was beautiful and the guides took awesome care of everyone. Don’t be fooled by the fun, though… it’s very dangerous and is best for experienced bike riders. It’s the date/time that worked for us, so we booked knowing we would likely not ride the bikes but we had to see the sunrise!!! 🌞😍

The sunrise was so beautiful, super cold so brings lots of layers. I bought a blanket even and we had the van around the whole time even biking so it was great I didn’t have to pack it down the bike ride. Cruiser Guides where great! Loved it! Had so much fun on bike down! Thanks

Sunrise super cold and windy, could offer better customer service
Peamid_K
, Mar 2022
The sunrise was sooooo cold and windy it was below 10 degrees with windchill. You would never think Maui could get that cold. Most of the people There were other buses that handed out windbreakers jacket and pants. If they offered this, this trip would’ve been 4 stars b/c we would’ve enjoyed the sunrise. When I mentioned this to the lady, she said it would get stolen…. Which is unlikely, since other tour buses, made people return it when people got back on the buses. It seems they more interested in collecting tips without offering extra service.

This tour was so much fun. So many laughs with Bobby and Nani. The tour was knowledgeable and exciting. The sunrise was incredible and the bike tour down the mountain was a crazy adrenaline rush. Must do with Mountain Riders!! You won’t regret it.

Amazing experience and a must do but bring thick layers of clothing for the sunrise. Long sleeve, sweatshirt, jacket shorts with pants over them and hat and gloves! You’re standing for an hour in 40 degrees with wind…super cold! You will remove layers as you work your way down on the bike. If you’re scared of heights would not recommend, you’re gliding down with multiple turns at 20mph on a bike just an FYI. However it’s an unreal experience!

I can say a truly awesome experience. If you like the pictures it will never do justice for the view. Magical and awe inspiring. Next bike ride. Thank you to all but thank you most to our team Abe & Donald. top-notch respect did everything they could to make the trip more enjoyable. Really made it a truly one of a kind experience from start to finish. Special notes for all that are going to attend this type of adventure. * dress real warm for the sunrise part of the view. It can be blustery and bitter cold. It won’t take away from the experience but I will definitely make you more comfortable as you are there before the sun rises. * no your level of bicycle riding. I’m not saying this is a crazy jumping off cliffs and doing exotic moves however you have to be able to handle your bike appropriately as you can head down trails between 15 to 25 miles an hour. Pretty much everything is street travel however awareness is key. All in all if you listen to the tour guides they will educate you and everything to expect and top-notch support for your skill and ability. I can say out of one of the most visually stunning tours leading to an awesome bike ride over the course of 30+ miles I cannot ask for anything more my wife and I totally agree this is worth the money and worth the time

Once in a lifetime!

Driver was such a joy to be around and so knowledgeable. He gave us ginger candies to help with motion sickness caused by the ride up the volcano. The bike tour guide was a rockstar! I was alittle nervous about the ride, and he made me feel so comfortable. This tour is definitely worth it! The sunrise was unreal and the bike ride was an experience of a lifetime!

The early morning was rough and cold, but the sunrise view was well worth it. All the staff from beginning to the end were extremely friendly. The bike ride down was exhilarating, wish it could have been longer. Manny was fun, interesting and experienced.

Rise and Ride
Robert_G
, Sep 2021
The sunrise was amazing we were so lucky that there was no wind today and the crescent moon was rising up from the horizon above the sun, we were the first group there so we got a prime spot, the bike ride was nice I was hoping we would get to ride at our on leisure but we had to stay with the group which was a little slow for us, and it starts outside the park entrance so it’s not from the top, the only complaint was there was no coffee or breakfast, just water and cereal bar, since we had to leave the hotel by 2:30 am there is no place to get breakfast and at the cost they should at least have coffee and a danish or something, but the guides were great and would recommend this tour

Viator bungled and mountain riders helped us out.
Nelson_P
, Jul 2021
This is a 2 part review. Viator who booked the biking adventure screwed up big time. I paid for 5 family members to do a once in a lifetime trip to see the sunrise atop Haleakala in Maui. I received my tickets but they mistakenly only confirmed 2 people to get in to experience it. There was no way to fix the problem in time and 3 of us had to miss out. It was heartbreaking, as this trip had been many years in the planning and of course is very expensive. They did issue a refund for the 3 of us, but that was no consolation as our family didn’t get to experience it together and can’t reschedule. So zero stars for them. Don’t use viator if you want to be sure that things go as planned. Mountain riders on the other hand tried to accommodate us to make the situation better. They helped us to at least do the bike ride together, and they did it free of charge for the 3 of us that missed out. It helped salvage a very painful moment for our family. 5 stars for them!!
