Want to do more than hang around the pool on your next Hawaiian vacation? A new hiking tour of stunning landscapes on Maui and Lanai means you’ll be walking rather than lounging.
The adventure begins on Maui, where participants will walk through lava fields along the Hoapili Trail, also called the King’s Highway.
Remnants of ancient temples still dot the footpath, set amid the starkness of the last eruption of the Haleakala volcano in 1790. Guests will also trek into volcano’s giant crater.
After a ferry ride to Lanai, a walk awaits along the Koloiki Ridge Trail through a forest of eucalyptus and guava trees. There’s also a hike on the Naha Trail, a route once used by King Kamehameha and his troops.
The history of this seldom-visited island can be explored at the Lanai Culture & Heritage Center in Lanai City.
Tours are priced from $4,298 to $5,498 per person, based on double occupancy.
