Bike n’ Zip in a First-Ever Tour on the Slopes of Haleakala

August 16, 2014 Destination Hawaii No Comments Email Email

Skyline Eco-Adventures, Hawaii’s award-winning zipline company and operator of the first zipline course in the United States, has launched a first-everBike n’ Zip tour on Maui in a new partnership with Maui Downhill, Maui’s first bike company.

The Bike n’ Zip Haleakala Sunrise Adventure tour begins with a Maui sunrise at Haleakala’s summit of 10,000 feet, also known as the “House of the Rising Sun.” Guests will learn about the history of Haleakala, the world’s largest resting volcano, and its significance in Hawaiian culture, before gently descending down 21 switchbacks with bi-coastal views, starting from 6,500 feet on the mountain’s western slopes.

Guests will then trade their bike helmet for a zipline harness upon arrival at the Skyline Eco-Adventures Haleakala tour, the first zipline course in the U.S. and a 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award winner. The tour’s five ziplines on the slopes of Haleakala feature up to 2 hours of canyon crossings, 90-foot drops through towering eucalyptus trees, a swinging bridge, and Maui’s only “pendulum” up-and-back zipline, which tops 45 mph. Guests will also have the opportunity to experience the upcountry beauty of a neighboring Maui lavender farm.

Bike n’ Zip tours start at $249.95 per person for a full-day experience of up to 9 hours, including complimentary transportation options and a continental breakfast. Book online at to save 10 percent or call (888) 864-6947.

Skyline was also selected among more than 100,000 picks in HAWAI‘I Magazine’s second-annual Reader’s Choice Awards, earning top 2014 honors in three categories: No. 1 Zipline Company; No. 1 Zipline Course, Ka’anapali, Maui; and No. 1 Land Activity/Adventure Tour Company.

Maui Downhill has offered bicycle safaris since 1984, guiding more than 1 million visitors down Haleakala and touring more than 11 million miles on custom-built bikes.
