Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: arrive in the Cook Islands

On arrival at Rarotonga Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of your day is at leisure.

Days 2-4 (or 2-7): at leisure

Spend the next few days discovering this tropical paradise where pristine white sandy beaches, lined with palm trees, are begging to be explored. Relax and admire the stunning lagoon, perfect for snorkelling, kayaking or diving or explore the islands lush and volcanic interior on foot. We highly recommend visiting the local market on a Saturday where you will be greeted with a friendly and bustling atmosphere and a chance to purchase traditional arts and crafts such as decorative wood carvings, hand weaved baskets or tapa cloths which have a distinctive Cook Islands flavour. The 32 km ring road makes it easy to explore, either by scooter, bicycle, car or even by local bus and the island offers plenty of activities for visitors as well as providing a base for day excursions to outer islands. Should time permit, take an Island Discovery Tour where you will journey around the island and learn about the local history and culture of Rarotonga. For those seeking adventure, join a 4WD Safari Tour where you will travel with a guide on the interior roads in a 4WD open air vehicle. Walking tours are also on offer, providing you with the opportunity to travel with a well known and experienced guide, Pa, who will share his knowledge of the islands flora and fauna and its medicinal purposes and teach you about local legends and myths.
