Sunset Mauna Kea

Hawaii Forest & Trail Review

This comfortable, highly educational tour packs a lot of fun into a few hours. Guides are knowledgeable about astronomy and Hawaii's geologic and cultural history, and the small group size (max of 14) encourages camaraderie. Included in the tour are dinner at an old ranching station, catered by a favorite local restaurant; sunset on the summit; and a fantastic private star show mid-mountain. The company's powerful 11-inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope reveals lots of interesting celestial objects, including seasonal stars, galaxies, and nebula. The moon alone, if present, will knock your socks off. Everything from water bottles, parkas, and gloves to hot chocolate and brownies is included for $199.
