With cascading waterfalls, lush rainforests, snow-capped peaks, and Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano, the Island of Hawaii (commonly referred to as the “Big Island”) is one of the most climatically diverse places on earth. There are an endless number of ways to explore the natural splendor of the area, whether that be hiking, boating, or flying. With so many Island of Hawaii tours to choose from, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has crafted a list of the most incredible experiences on the Island. Start planning your unforgettable Mauna Kea adventure today!

1. See Big Island from Above

From the steep coastal cliffs and ancient settlements of the Waipio Valley to the breathtaking lava fields of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters’ two-hour flight gives you a taste of all the Island of Hawaii has to offer. 

2. Peddle Through Paniolo Country

Peddling through Paniolo Country is something that intermediate cyclers simply cannot miss. We recommend checking out the bike tours offered by Big Island Bike Tours. They have something for everyone, including scenic rides, challenging day trips, and multi-day biking tours.

3. Stand at the Top of the World

Visiting the Mauna Kea Summit & Observatory Tours gives you the feeling of being on top of the world. Located on Hawaii’s tallest mountain (13,796 feet), the Mauna Kea Observatories feature some of the world’s largest telescopes due to its designation as an unparalleled destination for stargazing.

4. Witness the Stunning Kohala Waterfalls

The Island of Hawaii is known for some of the most jaw-dropping waterfalls in Hawaii. Nature enthusiasts and thrill-seekers should check out the Hawaii Forest & Trail’s Kohala Waterfalls Adventure. With their knowledgeable guides teaching you the history of the land, you can uncover how Wai (or water) brought the islands to life.

5. See the Pacific Ocean in the Moonlight

Here at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, we provide the opportunity to get an inside look into the Pacific Ocean’s moonlit, underwater world with our Manta Moonlight Night Snorkel. Don’t miss the opportunity to be guided by two researchers that have combined field experience of over 50 years.
