Know More about this tour

Our journey begins early in the morning while the rest of the island sleeps. After a brief stop at the Ellison Onizuza Visitors Information Station to acclimate and serve hot drinks we head to the summit to watch the first rays of dawn crawl across the landscape. See the morning sky light up in brilliant shades of red, orange, purple and blue. On the way down, learn about the cultural and scientific significance of the mountain, as you drive past the worlds greatest collection of telescopes. Well drop back down to 9,000 feet elevation where a tasty continental breakfast will be served at a private historic Hawaiian ranch.
