Maui Land Activities
Biking the volcano is one of the most popular Maui land activities year-round. The island of Maui is home to the Haleakala Crater, a dormant volcano 10,223 feet high. Your tour guides will shuttle you to the peak to watch the sunrise and let you glide down from the base of the park. With spectacular views along the way, the trip down Haleakala doesn’t fail to impress any visitor.
Not all Maui bike tours are the same, so we’ve made a Bike Tour Comparison Chart.

Waikapu Ziplines (Central Maui)
A big part of ziplining is enjoying incredible views unseen from the ground. With Maui Zipline Company, adults and children enjoy zipping through the Maui Tropical Plantation, over working farmland. The beauty of this property enhances the excitement of ziplining! This is the closest zipline course to south Maui (Kihei, Wailea, Makena, and Maʻalaea.) It’s also centrally located, which makes for short trips from Lahaina and Paia areas.

Hiking is a great activity to do and can be completely free! Though we do suggest you take a hiking tour with a guide that knows the area well.

When it comes to Maui land activities, hiking is one of the best.
These vehicles allow you to visit spots on the island that are inaccessible to regular vehicles. Besides having the luxury of seeing hidden Maui locations, you’ll have a ton of fun. Also, learn about the local flora, fauna, and history of the area.
