The beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui is known for its wild, volcanic interior, lush rainforests and the popular Road to Hana, a winding narrow road passing numerous waterfalls and natural features. The combination of tropical jungle and high volcanoes means that there is often plenty of rainfall on certain sections of Maui. This is especially true during the rainy season from November to March. The East and South of the island are generally the best places to find waterfalls and some, like Wailua, are major attractions in their own right.

Hikes into the forest to see the tall cascades of water falling down through the trees are a great way to experience the island’s natural environment. Most tours depart from a designated spot in Kahukui or Paia, so it’s worth considering this before booking. Here are five of the best Maui hiking and waterfall tours, taking into account factors such as the itinerary, value for money, health and safety features and, given the physical demands, the provision of food and water on the tour.
