      About this Kailua-Kona tour

      Experience the beauty of the Hawaiian sky on the island’s highest peak! This tour will take you to Mauna Kea Summit, where you will be able to observe the stars in all their glory.

      You will travel to the summit via a motor coach designed to travel on the bumpiest terrain. Upon your arrival, prepare for a breathtaking experience. Walk around the rocky terrain as your informative guide provides historical context about the area, including stories about early explorers who trekked the rugged landscape. 

      Before your tour officially begins, enjoy a private picnic-style dinner at Humuula Sheep Station, a historic location. Choose from teriyaki chicken, Kalbi beef short ribs, or vegetarian Thai curry, all gluten-free, as well as dessert. 

      Then, spend some time at the Mauna Kea Vistor’s Center, located at 9,000 feet above sea level. You will be able to acclimate to the rising elevation as well as check out the exhibits before the ultimate stop of your tour. 

      The last stop is the Mauna Kea Summit. The access road to reach the location is rather shaky, but you’ll discover why it was worth it. Experience a dazzling sunset as you tour the area. Stand tall as you check out the world’s largest collection of research telescopes. For a delicious treat, savor hot chocolate as you experience a riveting starshow at 9,000 feet above sea level with an 11-inch Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain telescope.
