A stopover you don't want to miss
Polynesia’s northernmost island group, Hawaii is about 4,350km from Vancouver and 7,000km from Auckland. Either way, it’s the perfect excuse for a trans-Pacific stop-over. Paradise with a puff of volcanic steam, this spectacular archipelago has a heady mix of lava flows, waterfall-doused sea cliffs, verdant jungle valleys and golden-sand beaches. Our collection of Hawaii holidays focuses on the main islands of Oahu, Hawaii’i and Maui – pick one or combine all three.

Cruise the Hawaiian Islands
Catch the surf or a sunset at Waikiki Beach, visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour, snorkel in ring-shaped Hanuama Bay or spot humpback whales off the Windward Coast.
The Big Island has no less than five volcanoes – see lava lakes, smoking craters and hardened lava flows in Volcanoes National Park. Mauna Kea is also a hotspot for star-gazing. Head to Kealakekua Bay for snorkelling, Hapuna Beach for powdery sands and Akaka Falls for a 135m waterfall plunging through rainforest.
The ‘Valley Isle’, Maui might also be called ‘Big Fun Island’. It steals the show when it comes to outdoor adventure. With a backdrop of sublime scenery, you can hike across lava flows and through bamboo forests, zipline through the jungle, snorkel on coral reefs and even kayak within sight of humpback whales.
