Start your morning on the Big Island on top of the world (literally) during this 6-hour sunrise trip to the peak of Mauna Kea. Watch the first rays of light peek across the horizon from the 13,000-foot (3,900-meter) summit before descending for an included continental breakfast and visit to the Mauna Kea Silversword plant enclosure.
  • Experience sunrise from the top of the Big Island's Mauna Kea volcano
  • Watch the purple, blue, orange and red rays of light as the sun peaks over the horizon
  • Explore the unique plant life of the volcano at the Silversword enclosure
  • Included continental breakfast, plus a hooded winter parka for the summit
  • Great way to start the day in Hawaii feeling 'on top of the world'
  • Minimum age is 16 years old
Meet up with your group in the very early morning before sunrise at the Kona headquarters of Hawaii Forest & Trail, or make prior arrangements for a hotel pickup (select hotels only). From there you’ll begin an ascent up the slopes of this 13,000-foot (3,900-meter) volcanic peak.
While en route, stop by the Ellison Onizuza Visitors Information Station, where you can indulge with a hot drink and start acclimating to the change in altitude. You’ll then proceed to the summit, arriving with enough time to watch the magnificent sunrise as it begins to peak over the horizon, glowing with rays of pink, purple, orange, blue and red light.
After experiencing the ultimate high-altitude sunrise, head back down the mountain to celebrate with an included continental breakfast. As you drive to your morning meal, your guide will share insights about the volcano’s array of telescopes and its importance to the worldwide scientific community. Following breakfast, you’ll also have time for a walk amidst the volcano’s unique Silversword plant enclosure before returning to your original starting point.

The tour which I booked was cancelled Mauna Kea sunset and star gazing due to the weather conditions, but with the help and recommendation of the local company Hawaii Forest and Trail,I guess it was Julie it has gained an unexpected experience.
I was lucky enough to see media shower, milky way, and beautiful stars while I was drinking hot chocolate.
After sunrise, a simple breakfast pleased me mightily.
I think this trip will be an unforgettable one for sure.
Two thumbs up!!!
