Cheap flights to Samoa

Lush landscapes, steep rocky trails, enticing beaches and the simplistic lifestyle of the locals all add up to make a trip to Samoa one to write home about. Head to Upolu to take in the To Sua Ocean Trench – a giant swimming hole that you climb down a long ladder to access and looks and feels just like something out of a Hollywood movie set. Once you’ve dried off, head down to the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and then take an afternoon break on Lalomanu Beach to rest yourself for the Fiafia Night where you can learn fire twirling or watch the locals do it as they do best. For high-level adventurers, don’t forget the Papaseea Sliding Rock – 3 waterfalls that you can slip and slide down to your heart's content. The Togitogiga Waterfall is also a must-see – you’ll spend much of your time in Samoa in your bathers or drying off. Universal Traveller can get you to Samoa with cheap flights for the tropical island paradise of your dreams.

Flights from Australia to Samoa generally arrive on the island of Upolu. Faleolo International Airport (APW) in Apia is the primary international facility for Samoa. The island of Savai’i also has an airport in Salelologa called Maota Airport (MXS). There are shuttle services from the airport to most of the nearby hotels in Apia. For a more traditional and even cheaper option, local buses are available from the main road outside of the airport. Taxis are another option, and it is recommended to negotiate the price before beginning the journey. Speak to your Student Travel consultant for advice on private transfers.

About Samoa

Samoa is located in the South Pacific Ocean and is an island nation known for its friendly people and stretching coastal plains. The tropical climate of Samoa makes for a great beach holiday almost all year round, and many escape to the island nation during the Aussie winter to make the most of the dry season from May to October. The must-see attractionsin Samoa include taking in the cultural village of Apia where you will learn the local way of hunting and gathering, weaving, singing and dancing – immerse yourself and let yourself go as the experience can be extremely cathartic. If you head to Savai’i you will have to make a stop at the Afu Aau Waterfall and marvel over its peace and tranquility, and then head down to the nearby Alofaaga Blowholes where you will see the wonders of geological formations hiss and spurt steam before your eyes. The Felealupo Canopy Walk and Mount Matavanu Crater are also great stopover points, but nothing beats swimming with the turtles in Savai’i – a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
