1. Go Off-Road

Do you like the combination of dirt under your feet and the sweet smell of the forest filling your days?

It’s time to move away from the sealed roads and take an off-road adventure.

Off-road touring takes your Maui experience to a whole new level.

With fit-for-purpose vehicles, some with single-seaters, some taking four people, tours off the beaten track find a way of embedding themselves firmly under your skin forever.

3. Camping Anyone?

Visitors to Maui don’t normally think of camping as an option, but this form of recreation can get you up close and personal with who this island really is.

The experience of camping on Maui is truly a relaxing and eye-opening experience. Combine camping with hiking for something different and see some of the places many visitors don’t even know exist.

For those who have camped before consider this a true adventure. New land, new people, and new experiences while taking in the air and earth of Maui in its most natural form.

If resorts aren’t for you, choose camping on Maui.

4. Hit the Road

All the free-spirited people out there know the feeling.

The benefit of driving tours is all about gaining knowledge of areas you didn’t know existed and the comfort of knowing guides are very experienced on the land and understand the roads and their many off-shoots and tracks.

Want to do it alone?

There are many options for those who prefer to let the wind take them where it may.

Book an RV for the ultimate on-road comfort. Fully equipped or stick to the basics, there’s a vehicle suited to make your road adventure much more than you expected.

A road trip is almost a rite of passage, but young or old, you never forget them.

Experience Maui by road for a different take on your surroundings. It is carefree and one of the best ways to experience local people, businesses, and amazing traditional food.

5. Let’s Go Eco

Hawaiian culture, the beliefs of its people both past and present, and the impact of such are still very much respected on the islands of Hawaii.

For those wanting to experience the natural beauty, of Maui without the crowds and usual tourist hotspots, there is the perfect solution.

Enjoy the lavender fields, learn how locals conserve the lands for the next generations and take home a memory of these diverse locals from walking the grounds and living in the landscapes in which they have since ancient times.

Try a rainforest tour or a snorkeling day out for a true perspective on life on Maui.

There are farm stays and tours for those with kids (and for those big kids at heart). Learning how to take care of animals and seeing where the local food comes from is invaluable.

Simple living gets us back to reality. We are all better for experiencing it.

6. Take a Big Bite

Can’t decide between water wonderland and land-based adventures? Now you don’t have to. Take a tour that incorporates the best of both worlds. Kayak and hike your way to happiness or go on a speedboat and snorkel tour to your heart’s content.

Introduce yourself to green turtles, and colorful fish then hike to a lookout for the most spectacular views found on the islands.

Combination tours are excellent for those who wish to make the most of every stunning day on Maui, and for those who may only have a few days here to take it all in.

The best of Maui is now your mission, should you choose to accept it.
