Watching the sunset or sunrise from the summit of Mauna Kea is considered by many to be a transcendent experience. Viewing the sun setting or rising from above the clouds offers an incredible perspective every time. Clouds light up beneath the sky and turn a multitude of colors. Maunakea’s natural, cultural history and geology appeal comes to life with Hawaii Forest & Trail’s interpretive guides. In addition, Maunakea holds the world’s greatest collection of astronomy equipment and is considered one of the best places on Earth to view the stars.
Maunakea Sunrise or Maunakea Sunset?
Sunset on the summit of the mountain is the most popular activities to do on the Island of Hawaii and is extremely sought-after. Hawaii Forest & Trail offers two opportunities – both sunset and sunrise Maunakea tours. Maunakea sunset is a very popular event. The mountain is full of activity and the views astounding. Maunakea sunrise on the mountain is a quiet, introspective experience, with fewer people and less activity providing an incredible reflective way to start your day.
Hawaii Forest & Trail will take care of all your needs on your Maunakea Tour. We provide warm parkas, comfortable 14 passenger van, and dedicated interpretive guides. Unlike other tours, you will enjoy dining at the Parker Ranch former sheep station for a delicious breakfast or dinner. Everything you need to be comfortable on your guided Big Adventure!
