Arnott's Lodge & Hiking Adventures
Arnott's Mauna Kea summit tour focuses more on the experience of the mountain than on astronomy. Guides use laser lights to provide an informative lesson on major celestial objects and Polynesian navigational stars. The excursion departs from Hilo and costs $180 per person, including parkas and hot beverages. The outfitter also offers lava and waterfall tours. www.arnottslodge.com.
