Plan Your Visit

Welcome to Haleakalā National Park

Your visit to Haleakalā National Park might include a glimpse of a rare native bird, a hands-on experience with Hawaiian culture, breezes through the bamboo forest, or warm sun on your back as you hike a volcanic landscape.

First you have to choose the experience you are seeking and where to discover it. Do you want to explore the summit? The coast? Do you have time to experience both? Perhaps you can spend a few days and plan an overnight adventure.

Whatever you choose, be prepared. The Summit and Kīpahulu Districts are remote. An ambulance can take up to 45 minutes to arrive at either district. People with respiratory or other medical conditions should be aware that the summit of Haleakalā is at 10,023 ft. There is no food, beverages, or gasoline in the park.

A rainbow appears in the crater.
Hikes in the Summit District provide visitors breathtaking views.
