Guided Activities

Haleakalā National Park is an inspiring outdoor classroom rich in cultural and natural history. Many visitors enjoy learning about the area they are visiting by interacting with park staff. Park naturalists present a variety of interpretive programs throughout the year including cultural demostrations, citizen scientist projects, and guided talks and walks. Please ask about times and locations for ranger-guided walks and talks, and check our social media accounts for any special events while you visit!

Attend one of our daily ranger programs. In the Summit District, we offer daily talks at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, and 3:00 PM at the Headquarters Visitor Center at 7,000 feet and a daily 10:30 AM talk at the Haleakalā Visitor Center at 9,740 feet. In the Kīpahulu District we offer a daily talk at 4:00 PM at the Kīpahulu Visitor Center.

There are also regularly scheduled Cultural Resource tours in the summit district. These tours include a behind the scenes look at the Haleakalā National Park's museum collection, a talk on the history of early tourism to Haleakalā, and a guided tour of the history of architecture in the park.
