Cook Islands

Flanked to the west by the Kingdom of Tonga & the Samoas, and to the east by Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia, the Cook Islands are in the centre of the Polynesian Triangle.

Cook Islanders have chosen to retain and preserve their old ways. You will see no high rise resorts. They are not allowed. Yet accommodation options are excellent and varied. A wide selection of restaurants on Rarotonga offer international and local cuisine.

The island of Rarotonga is the centre of the Cook Islands. It is dominated by mountain peaks and encircled by a reef with a turquoise lagoon.

Aitutaki, 220 kilometres north of Rarotonga, is part volcanic and part atoll. Aitutaki is renowned for its clear waters and white beaches.

Outer Islands – a visit to an outer island is a step back in time and for the more adventurous can be a memorable and rewarding experience.

Prices to the Cook Islands are always changing, and there are always special packages available, so please contact us to check on the availability of prices and packages to suit your needs.

New special packages become available all the time, please contact us for prices.

National Geographic To Promote Cooks As Geotourism Destination

The National Geographic Society has signed an agreement with the Rarotonga government to promote the Cook Islands as a "geotourism" destination.

The Cook Islands is the first destination in the Pacific to sign the National Geographic's Geotourism Charter and only the fourth destination in the world.

"Geotourism focuses on those attributes that make a place worth visiting. It's about what makes one place different from the next," according to Jonathan Tourtellot, director of National Geographic's Center for Sustainable Destinations.
