Do you like going against the flow? By doing the full circle Road to Hana in reverse, we can explore the most popular sites and locations before the crowds arrive. Travel around Haleakala counter-clockwise. Our Reverse Hana Road adventure begins along the less-explored southern coast of the Hana Highway, continues past Hana Town, and concludes along the more famous northern route.
Experience lush, tropical rainforests, numerous cascading waterfalls, breathtaking coastline views and secluded beaches, as well as popular roadside stands and the vast variety of climates and landscapes Maui has to offer. Highlights include numerous waterfalls, lunch in or near Hana town, Ke’anae Village, green sea turtles at Ho’okipa, a lava cave, rare colorful beaches, panoramic ocean views and opportunities for light off-roading along a secluded beach.
This adventure does not include the Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools and the red sand beach at Kaihalulu. The Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools is located within Haleakala National Park and we do not have a permit to enter the park. Tour companies are also not allowed to take anyone into the park, even if the guests have their own pass.
In addition, the trail to the red sand beach in Hana is dangerous and crosses private property. Hana residents have asked tour companies to not take visitors here and we have respected their wishes. As an alternative, we stop at Koki Beach, where there is gorgeous red sand and picturesque views for the option of eating lunch by the sea.
All are optional(weather permitting) and customized to your preferences

I don’t know where to begin! This was simply AWESOME!!!! I wish there were more stars to give this trip. The personalized VIP treatment was second to none. We started our tour early on our Reverse Hana Highway tour and got everything we wanted to see and before the “tourists” started coming in. The banana bread and bbq pork sandwich at Aunt Sandy’s was the best we’ve ever had. We went to some hidden spots along the way and they didn’t disappoint. We felt like celebrities–we were Beyonce and Denzel! Riding in the jeep was EVERYTHING!! If you know you will be doing the Road to Hana you better book this tour now. You’ll thank me later for this hidden jewel.
