A Two-Island Adventure in Hawaii

From $6,199 - $6,599 pp dbl. occ. | 5 days / 4 nights

(+$1,260 to $2,100 for sgl. occ.)

Slow down and embrace island living. Let sea turtles set the pace as you snorkel alongside them. Relax on a beach under palm trees. The only rush is the one your family will get from seeing a pod of dolphins from your kayaks. Or from feeling the wind on your face as you hike across the summit of Haleakala. There's no need to hurry on Maui and Lanai.

We're here to help

Get the Straight Talk about This Trip

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Easygoing Adventure

This is a Level 1-3 trip, meaning the activities are easygoing and designed to allow us to take it slow and soak up the beauty of the region. Each day we embark on an active adventure, but the amount of time spent in the saddle and on the trails is less than the typical Backroads trip. We've paired our core activities with ones that are suited to this destination, such as kayaking and snorkeling. The level of these activities combined with plenty of downtime to relax and take advantage of the hotels, result in the ideal way to experience the Hawaiian Islands.

Shuttling

We often shuttle to access a variety of fun activities and local highlights. The Trip Leaders will be able to help you determine which shuttles you can opt out of if you are more inclined to stay at the hotel and reconvene with the group after a day of relaxation.

Resorts

We've chosen to stay at large beach resorts on this trip because they are the most luxurious in the area and offer an array of amenities and activities to enjoy.

Peak Season

The holiday and spring break months are a great time to travel; however, with days off and the desire to escape for sunshine many others have the same idea. While we always aim to get off the beaten path, during certain times of the year crowds and delays are unavoidable.

Why Travel with Backroads in Maui and Lanai

The Best Leaders in Maui and Lanai

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Maui and Lanai, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

Kids Who Aren't Kids Anymore

Only Backroads offers active trips in Maui and Lanai designed for families with older teens and 20s. These trips are aimed at you and the amazingly grownup members of your clan—whether they're almost high school grads, already in college or further along. Find out more in this blog post.

Only the Best Hotels

On this trip featuring Premiere Hotels, you can count on the best lodgings Maui and Lanai has to offer. In fact, the hotels we've chosen in this region have higher retail room rates than those offered by any other active travel company—even when their trips cost more.

We've Set the Standard

For nearly four decades we've worked to earn and maintain our right to call Backroads the world's #1 active travel company. In pursuing that vision on behalf of our guests, we believe we've set the standard for our industry—captured in the Backroads Quality Guide, which clearly sets out the benchmarks of excellence, choice and support that we live by

Quality You Can Measure

Since 1979, Backroads Founder and President Tom Hale has shown that staying #1 means constantly evaluating our performance using the best possible source of information: our guests. As we systematically analyze your feedback on our trip consultants, leaders, hotels, meals and on-trip activities, we never stop working to make a great company even better.

We Invented the Multi-Adventure Trip

After more than 30 years of creating Backroads Multi-Adventures, our trip designers know how to blend the perfect balance of biking and hiking with other activities to showcase the best of a region. And then they arrange the seamless transitions that would be so hard to orchestrate on your own—adding dimensions to your trip that are exciting, inspiring and just plain fun.
