The drive to the summit of Mauna Kea is one you’ll never forget. Mauna Kea is the world’s tallest mountain, rising more than 32,000 feet (9,754 meters) from the ocean floor to its summit, which is considered by many Hawaiians to be the most sacred place in all the islands. The road climbs 13,796 feet (4,205 meters) above sea level. You’ll stand in awe at both nature’s sublime creation and man’s astonishing technological achievements.

After your pickup at a designated hotel in Hilo (outside Hilo area pick ups at designated meeting place), watch as your transport passes lush green flora and moonscape lava fields. As the car turns onto the Saddle Road, which travels the island between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, you’ll see a dramatic and diverse landscape of ranch land, sub-alpine forest and rainforest (with striking features such as cinder cones, lava flows, lava tubes and kipuka).

You will first spend some time acclimating at the 9,200 foot level while enjoying hot soup. After dinner and with a provided jacket in hand, you'll make the 45 minute drive to the summit. As your make your way up, listen to the guide’s interpretation of Hawaii’s remarkable natural, cultural and geologic history.

Once at the summit, soak in spectacular views of the horizon, Haleakala on Maui, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. Mauna Kea’s summit is also home to a world-class array of telescopes.

After sunset, you will descend to the Visitor’s Information Station at 9,000 foot elevation for a special stargazing show from volunteer astronomers. Wrapped warm in provided Arctic parkas, you'll enjoy hot beverages and cookies while marveling at the brilliance of the Hawaiian night sky. Your guide will share stories of the observable universe, and offer you a personal and educational look at the heavens. You'll then be returned to your original pickup location.
