Tour Details

The first stop on your Iao Valley and Maui Tropical Tram excursion is a visit to the Maui Tropical Plantation, a 60-acre working plantation where you can discover Hawaii's rich agricultural history. Enjoy a fully narrated, 40-minute tram ride that takes you through breathtaking scenery and explores where many of the plantation's crops are cultivated. Along the way, you'll learn all about coconuts and witness a coconut-husking demonstration. You'll also see where sugarcane, coffee, macadamia nuts, pineapple, papaya, mango, guava and bananas are grown. There are plenty of samples for tasting and a gift shop selling a wide variety of Maui-grown goodies.

No tour of the Maui countryside would be complete without a visit to Iao Needle, the straight-up pinnacle at the heart of the Valley Island's western range. This iconic, green-mantled rock outcropping is one of Maui's most recognizable landmarks. The Needle is located in the 4,000-acre Iao Valley State Park in Central Maui, just west of Wailuku. There is a well-marked, paved pedestrian path leading from the parking lot to view Iao Needle, and the ridge-top lookout provides incredible views of the valley.

Unfortunately, it was raining when we arrived at the Iao Valley. Given that, the valley was beautiful! The Tropical Farm was interesting, and the highlight was the tram driver/guide dehusking a coconut.

Everything you see is so interesting. I found it all facinating. All the different fruit trees and breath taking views. I now know how to open a coconut!
