Cook Islands Tours
Need to get away from it all? The Cook Islands is as close as you’ll get to deserted islands that seem a gazillion miles away from the real world. Thankfully, they’re only a short plane ride away instead.
Get set for island time
The largest island, Rarotonga, is home to white sandy beaches, craggy mountain ranges and dense jungles. It’s a marvellous escape from reality, but it’s only one of 15 islands to wash ashore on in the Cook Islands.
Rarotonga is a beautiful place where even island time stands still. Here, you can spend some time at beautiful Muri beach and lagoon. Deep-sea fishing is another great activity to include in your Rarotonga tours – catch mahi-mahi, tuna, wahoo, barracuda, sailfish or marlin.
Next stop on your amazing Cook Island experience is Aitutaki. This peaceful island is most famous for its coral lagoon – one of the world’s largest - and an incredible sight from the air. You can also snorkel at the deserted Mofu islet, explore the backroads or maybe stop at the Saturday markets. You must check out the village of Vaipae on a Sunday for a toe-tapping performance by drummers, dancers and fire dancers too.
If you’re a bit of an eco-warrior, you’ll love Atiu, the most environmentally friendly island of the Cook Islands. Its most-loved natural feature is the maketea – a raised coral reef caused by volcanic activity hundreds of thousands of years ago. Atiu is also home to beautiful birdlife, ancient caves and tumunu, a place where local men gather to drink their homebrew. It’s a ceremonial ritual and visitors are welcome to take part.
