The Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau (MVCB) continues its collaboration with Trilogyʻs Blue ʻĀina, and Pūlama Lānaʻi to provide a Mālama Lānaʻi Day Trip experience for group travel.
Sherry Duong, executive director of the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau, said: “We are thrilled to continue this partnership with two organizations that embody being stewards of the land, and providing this opportunity to the groups market.”
She continued: “Whether you’re visiting Maui for incentive travel or a conference, the Mālama Lānaʻi Day Trip has been created to share Lānaʻi’s culture with visitors through voluntourism activities.”
On the way to Lānaʻi, Trilogy Excursions will provide ecological, cultural and historical orientations about the island. Breakfast will be served, including Trilogyʻs famous cinnamon rolls and hot coffee.
Upon arriving in Lānaʻi, groups will have the opportunity through Pūlama Lānaʻi for a conservation-based service learning experience.
Following voluntourism activities, visitors are invited to explore the charm of the locally-owned boutiques, galleries and restaurants in the historic town of Lānaʻi City and also to visit the Lānaʻi Culture and Heritage Center.
This unique service learning day trip is aimed to empower visitors to mālama Lānaʻi. The cultural, ecological and historical content that will be shared throughout the day has been created by the Lānaʻi Advisory Group, a group of Lānaʻi residents.
With this restorative experience, MVCB, Trilogy Excursions, and Pūlama Lānaʻi strive to increase visitor awareness and empower visitors to be stewards of the land and foster community relationships and partnerships. These goals are created with the intention to increase mindful behaviours among current and future visitors of Lānaʻi.
As part of the Maui Nui Destination Management Action Plan (DMAP) that is aimed at developing actions for the recovery and rebuilding of tourism, the Mālama Lānaʻi Restoration Day builds upon those actions by educating visitors about safe and mindful travel. The one-day program will be filled with history and cultural storytelling to both take in and learn from.
