Day 1: Arrive Rarotonga
On arrival into the Cook Islands you will be met at the airport – Papa Jake awaits you on his ukulele and a representative will greet you with a flower ei (garland) and a big smile.
You will be taken to your hotel by shared transfer, where you will check in for 4 night stay.
Days 2 & 3: Rarotonga
Today is a free day. enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading out to explore. At just 32 square kilometres Rarotonga is a small island with only one road running around the perimeter, it's not difficult to get around using local buses, if or if you're feeling a bit more active you could even cycle it, a great way to spend your first day.
Activities on the island include snorkelling and diving, taking a walk with the local legend Pa, hiring a car or moped, shopping in the main town of Avarua or just wiling away the days relaxing on the sandy white beaches.
Why not find out if there is an ‘island night’ happening during your stay – enjoy Polynesian culture at its best with traditionally cooked food and dancing. We can arrange this for you prior to travel just ask your consultant for more details.
Day 4: Day trip to Aitutaki
No trip to the Cook Islands is complete without seeing Aitutaki lagoon with your own eyes. TWe have included a day trip, but if you have the time then we would certainly recommend that you enjoy a night or two, if not longer, in this pacific paradise.
You will fly out in the morning on the short 45 minute journey and spend the afternoon snorkelling and swimming in the clearest turquoise waters you can imagine. Enjoy a barbeque lunch and get your passport stamped at Onefoot Island – you can even send a postcard home from the only post office in the world located on an uninhabited island.
Overnight back in Rarotonga for your final evening.
