Mauna Kea Summit Adventures
As the first company to specialize in tours to the mountain and the only company to offer only Mauna Kea tours, Mauna Kea Summit Adventures loves to focus on stars. Cushy vans with panoramic windows transport you first to the visitors center at 9,200 feet where you'll eat dinner and acclimatize for an hour. A hooded arctic-style parka and ski gloves keep you warm for the 4WD sunset trip to the 14,000-foot summit. Stargazing through a powerful Celestron telescope happens mid-mountain with the help of knowledgeable guides. Tour, dinner, and (westside) pickups cost $200 per person. www.maunakea.com.
