Home > Mauna Kea Summit Adventures
Mauna Kea Summit Adventures was the original sightseeing company to begin tours up to the summit of Mauna Kea to view the dramatic landscape, get a glimpse of the variety of observatories there and to view the heavens from that altitude through telescopes that were carried up in the vans with them. On the summit, your guide will point out the observatories as they begin to open their domes and rotate into position. There are great photo opportunities as sunset transforms the area into a beautiful spectacle. Then the tour descends to mid-mountain where using a large portable telescope you'll observe the treasures of the night sky and sip on hot chocolate and eat a warm meal.
On this unique small group excursion, we take route to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, via the beautiful Hamakua Coast. Accompany our expert guides for an informative, narrated adventure as we journey through the great diversity of climates and dramatic scenery found on the Big Island.
