  Sunrise At The Crater
by jag17

Take the bicycle tours from Haleakala! It was an amazing experience. I recommend the sunrise tour. They will pick you up from your hotel early (about 2:30am), but it is well worth it. They need to have everyone picked up, get the equipment (bicycles, rain gear, helmets, gloves), and drive you to the top of the volcano by sunrise. You then have plenty of time to walk around, take pictures, and get comfortable on your bicycle. Be prepared - it is extremely cold at the top. You need to dress in layers. Your group will then start the way down, single file. It is a 38 mile downhill ride that starts at 10,000' elevation and returns you to sea level. You do reach some pretty high speeds, so you should feel comfortable on a bicycle You will remain with a guide the entire time. Plenty of photo ops, and a stop for breakfast included in the price.

Directions: Most companies will pick up at your hotel
