The Big Island is home to a large number of astronomical observatories due to its ideal conditions for star gazing. Mauna Kea's summit, located above the clouds, is the perfect vantage point from which to gaze at heavenly bodies and constellations. These tours take you to Mauna Kea and Saddle Road, remote locations with a clear view of the night sky, to gaze up at the stars with your naked eyes or with a powerful telescope.
