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, informational talks, and guided walks. Please ask about times and locations for ranger-guided walks and talks, and check our park calendar and social media accounts for any special events while you visit!
