CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT:After careful thought and deliberation of our duty in the face of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, and in what we believe is in the best interest of our guests, employees and local communities, Mauna Kea Summit Adventures will suspend operations starting Friday March 20th. We are still accepting limited reservations starting April 10th and beyond, but these reservations should be considered tentative as we can’t be certain when we will be able to operate again. Mahalo, for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Be safe and good luck. -MKSA Management
Since starting this outfit in 1983 with an old Land Cruiser and a basket full of sweaters, my guides and I have had the enviable job of guiding nice folks, like you, to the beauty of Mauna Kea. For us, guiding Mauna Kea isn’t a sideline or the greatest new visitor product. For us, it’s our passion, our responsibility, and our pleasure.
We invite you to experience what is quite possibly the most dramatic and stimulating scenery to be found anywhere, either on or off planet earth. Journey to the top of this spectacular mountain in our 4X4 vans, enjoy a hearty meal, watch the breathtaking sunset and stargaze at the heavens.
E Komo Mai ! (welcome)
