Travel up Mauna Kea for a small-group sunset and stargazing tour by luxury 4WD van. Leave the off-road drive to the pros, and ride from Kona or Waikoloa to a historic Hawaiian ranch for a picnic dinner. Continue to the Big Island's tallest peak for sunset, then use powerful telescopes to observe constellations from Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station. Hear commentary from your guide, and keep warm with the provided jackets and hot chocolate.

The guide book was right. There was “vehicular confusion”. There is just a few parking spaces here. It had rained our entire way here. So hazy and muddy. But pretty views.

Limited parking. Dangerous, risky path down to shoreline. However great view of coastline and valley from above.
