Fun Maui Tours For 2021Updated: March 4, 2021
“The Valley Isle,” more commonly known as Maui, is Hawaii’s second-largest island. It is beloved for a wide variety of reasons, including its diverse beaches, lush valleys, active humpback whales, world-class cuisines, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. In fact, Conde Nast Traveler readers have voted it as the “Best Island in the U.S” for more than 20 years! It’s no wonder, really, that it has become a popular tourist destination for many visitors worldwide. For those who plan to treat themselves with adventure this year, we present three, fun Maui tours to enjoy in 2021!
Road to Hana
By far, one of the top attractions on Maui is the famed Road to Hana. It’s a 50-mile long road with hundreds of curves and several one-lane bridges. Allowing people to truly understand the phrase “it’s the journey, not the destination,” this beautiful road encourages a leisurely flow.
The Road to Hana is spectacular, and while the journey takes all day, it doesn’t feel like a long drive. To completely enjoy the experience and not miss any hidden wonders, booking a private jeep tour on Maui is highly recommended. Of course, you can enjoy a halfway trip to Hana just as much as the full-day trip or, if you like going against the flow, book the road to Hana in reverse!
West Maui Mountains
Situated around the back side of the West Maui Mountains (Mauna Kahalawai), this scenic drive rivals the Road to Hana. Here, you will experience various awe-inspiring sites and stops, as well as opportunities to hike and swim.
If you want a truly unique experience, conquer the West Maui Mountains by land…and by air! Deep within the recesses of Mauna Kahalawai, near the peak of Pu’u Kukui, lies an area on Maui you will only see from a seat in a helicopter. Here you will witness the incredibly beautiful “Wall of Tears,” as it flows through vibrant green jungle walls. Falls stream from the mountain top, cascading down the slopes, to the hidden valley below. Most Maui helicopter tours that reveal the Wall of Tears, also include the breathtaking waterfalls plunging down the world’s highest sea cliffs of the nearby Island of Molokai.
When you’ve had your fill of the views from the skies, enjoy a different perspective. Travel around the West Maui Mountains in rugged, off-road style, in a convertible Jeep. Walk along the path through ethereal Honolua Bay Forest, with its massive Monkeypod trees, sheathed in perpetual green. Emerge into tranquil Honolua Bay, where you can go for a snorkel or a swim. Hike down to witness the Nakalele Blowhole, visit the lovely Karen Lei at her art gallery. Don’t miss the views from Kahakuloa Head, or the “dragon’s teeth” at Makaluapuna Point.

Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano in the world, makes up about 75 percent of the land mass on Maui. Haleakala’s main attractions for tourists are the dramatic sunrises and sunsets, viewed from the rim of the crater at nearly 10,000 feet elevation. After experiencing what it feels like to stand on top of the world, another popular activity is to coast down the slope of Haleakala – about 4,000 feet – on a mountain bike. You can choose to experience riding down the volcano on a guided tour, or go at your own pace.
Following your bike ride, you may also visit the historic towns and ranches in the upcountry area. These include Makawao, Kula, and Ulupalakua. Walk through lavender farms and botanical gardens, or stop and watch local artisans create blown glass masterpieces before your eyes. To have the full experience of your Haleakala ascent and descent, check out our jeep adventure tours – an experience ideal for both newcomers and repeat visitors to the island.
