Hawaii is one of the most removed places in the world. That means that the light pollution in Hawaii is at a minimum, which also means the night sky is almost as lively as the adventurous day time. The Big Island of Hawaii boasts some of the best, if not the best, stargazing in the world.

The higher up Mauna Kea you go, even more light disappears and the depths of the universe are unveiled. Ascend into the cosmos at the nearly 14,000 foot summit of Mauna Kea to witness just how spectacular our sky really is. Most tours will provide an exceptional telescope to take you deeper into the stars around us. Knowledgeable guides also add to the experience by showing constellations and sharing a multitude of information about the area and the stars above.
Mauna Kea is home to some of the most powerful telescopes and observational equipment in the world. The lack of disruptive light really makes this place perfect for star viewing. So much so that people from all over the world travel here to see farther into the cosmos than anywhere else. Mauna Kea is also home to some of the rarest plant and animal species in the world.
