ABOUT HALEAKALA SUNSET & STARGAZING

From the world’s largest dormant volcano, renew your spirit with an enchanting sunset and an awe-inspiring sparkling night sky above the clouds, away from light-pollution. Ancient Hawaiians passed their knowledge through storytelling and in similar fashion, our guide and professional astronomer will explain Hawaiian culture, tales of Haleakala, and wayfinding (navigating by the stars). Sit in comfort as our expert driver navigates the winding roads safely up the mountain. After the sun sets, gaze through our premium telescope equipped with GPS to help find any constellation and planet while enjoying a hot beverage service.

Enjoy one of the best vantage points in the world for stargazing with clearer skies on top of Haleakala, more than 10,000 feet tall.
