Because the mule trail not operating as the bridge is washed out, I flew into Kalaupapa. The tour was so amazing and our Guide Rick Schonely has such a love of this place and the people that we could have easily spent days with him....More
Best day excursion from Maui that we made. The only way into Kalaupapa at this time is by air (we used Mokulele - see separate review) and with a permit, as there are still a few residents (eight as of writing) living there. We secured...More

Hello! We visited Kalaupapa from Molokai a few weeks ago. I called Kalaupapa National Park and booked both my flight and tour through the park. They were very helpful. I don’t recall the exact cost. It was worth every penny! It is an incredible place full of beauty, history, and spirit. Enjoy!

Unfortunately, you will not be able to hike the Kalaupapa trail to the old leper colony as there was a landslide late in December 2018 or early in January 2019 that destroyed a bridge on the trail and there is no way to get in. The trail is blocked off at the road entrance. The only way to get is by helicopter or fixed wing plane.
