If you’re going to join us on a Road to Hana adventure, you might be wondering what to bring with you before departing on the world-famous Road to Hana in one of our Luxury Limo-Vans. Never fear, traveler! Here’s everything you’ll need to enjoy your day in Maui’s rainforest.
Comfortable Clothing – On the Road to Hana, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get out of the Limo-Van, explore, and simply take in the beautiful surroundings that East Maui offers. Temperatures are a bit cooler than other areas on Maui sometimes, but it’s still a tropical rainforest! Our favorite touring gear? Shorts and a t-shirt are perfect for a day on the Road to Hana.
Light Jacket or Sweater – Like we said, temperatures can be a bit cooler, and of course, you’ll be traveling in an air-conditioned Luxury Limo-Van. Just in case, it’s a good idea to bring a light sweater or jacket, and you’ll be prepared for some of the light, misting rains that are common in East Maui, or relaxing in the Limo-Van after a swim!
Good Walking Shoes – Our tours aren’t hiking tours, so don’t worry about having the sturdiest hiking shoes money can buy. You will be walking on natural terrain, and rocks, roots, dirt, and mud are commonplace on the Road to Hana. Rather than your cute pool-side flip-flops, wear your sneakers or athletic sandals for the Road to Hana.
Swimsuit and Towel – Planning on taking a dip? Bring your swimsuit along to change into, and you’ll be happy to have a nice fluffy beach towel on board as well! Swimming stops on the Road to Hana are located near convenient places to change, so don’t worry about wearing your swimsuit under your clothes.
Sunscreen – Even though you’ll be in the rainforest, you’ll have opportunities to get some sun during the day—especially at the black-sand beach! Bring sunscreen with you to re-apply throughout the day, to avoid having a sunburn as a Road to Hana souvenir. Just a note: if you’ll be on our Hana Sky-Trek, bring a small bottle of non-aerosol sunscreen. The aerosol cans aren’t allowed on board the helicopter, and you’ll want to limit your carry-on bag to about three pounds per person.
Camera – It might seem like a no-brainer, but of COURSE you’ll want your camera during your adventure! If it’s a stand-alone camera, make sure its batteries are charged, and you’ve got enough space on your SD card to capture hundreds of memories. If you’ll be using your phone for your camera, it’s a good idea to bring a portable battery pack with you, and put it on “airplane mode” during the drive. You probably won’t have service on most of the Road to Hana, and too much searching for a tower can drain your battery!
Everything else—lunch, bottled water, and even refreshing tropical fruit juice beverages—are provided on board, as well as premium umbrellas in case it rains! Of course, always let us know if you have additional questions, and we look forward to sharing a Hana Highway adventure with you soon!
