Mauna Kea is Hawaiian for "White Mountain," and while the summit can be blanketed in soft snow, it is also known as one of the best places in the world to go stargazing. After dinner, go high up the slopes to 4,000m to see the sunset before settling down for a stargazing experience at around 3,000m while using top-grade equipment!

Dinner: A choice BLT sandwich or veggie burger.
