Itinerary

Day 2 Be awed by Haleakala's starkly beautiful landscape as you descend into the crater of this massive shield volcano from 9,500 feet above sea level | An International Biosphere Reserve, Haleakala wows visitors with rare endemic flora and fauna, like the delicate silversword and the regal Hawaiian goose.

Day 3 Channel your inner adventurer as you hike on the King's Highway, an ancient royal Hawaiian walking path | Explore laid-back Lahaina and perhaps shop for souvenirs | Ferry to Lanai, the smallest inhabited island in Hawaii | Visit Hulopoe Beach on a trail once used by ancient Hawaiian fishermen | Experience an unforgettable sunset over the ocean from our luxurious hotel.

Days 4-5 For superb views of hidden valleys, Maui and Molokai, embark on a scenic hike along the Koloiki Trail | Walk through groves of guava, ironwood and kukui trees | Discover the island's fascinating history at the Culture and Heritage Center | Swim or snorkel at our hotel's private white-sand beach, or relax poolside | End your Hawaiian adventure with a short walk to legendary Sweetheart Rock.

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.

Interpretive Guides & Hiking Without Your Leaders

The State of Hawaii Trail and Access Program, "Na Ala Hele," manages the public and commercial use of trails in Hawaii. Our Hoapili hike on Day 3 is a recreational trail that does not offer commercial permits for guided hikes. As a result, you'll hike this trail without Backroads leaders or local guides. Your Trip Leaders will provide pre-walk briefings, maps and directions. We appreciate your cooperation with the state's regulations.
 

Why Travel with Backroads in Maui and Lanai

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.

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.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Maui and Lanai you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

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

Your Trip Will Run. Period.

Under our Book with Confidence policy, your Backroads trip will run even for one or two people (or a family of three or four), subject to a nominal extra fee. Or transfer to another trip, and we'll give you a credit. It's all part of our trademark commitment to treating guests with integrity, transparency and total accountability. Read all the details.

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.

Choose Your Fellow Travelers

With Backroads you won't end up with kids on what you thought was an adult trip; we have exclusive departures for families, so they're off having their own adventures. As you browse our unrivaled selection of trips and dates, you can count on finding a trip in Maui and Lanai that's geared exclusively to your choice of traveling companions.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Maui and Lanai trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.
