Discover Upcountry Maui

Upcountry is Maui’s little secret. It’s where you throw on a light flannel and take a morning drive through the crisp mountain air, perhaps stopping to relax on the porch of a family-run coffeehouse. It’s a place to hike, sample Maui’s only vineyard, and holds the honor of Maui’s most artistic community.

We’ve got an overview of the best activities, accommodations, and deals for you to check out during your trip.
