The Cook Islands vacations

Travel with confidence
With our flexibility promise, and a dedicated expert to advise you while you plan, you can book with certainty with Audley.

The Cook Islands sway to their own languorous beat. Then, it’s hard not to slow your pace in an archipelago devoid of traffic lights (and, for that matter, any real traffic — unless you count scooters and chickens). For our specialists, the Cook Islands’ appeal goes beyond their quintessentially South Pacific vistas, white-sand beaches, rainforest, and mint-blue ocean. It’s their unhurried lifestyle, lack of international chains, and thriving community traditions that really make a vacation to the Cook Islands.

You could explore the mountainous interior of Rarotonga, the main island, as well as its coast, on your Cook Islands vacation. Our specialists will also suggest ways to delve into islander culture, such as attending an umu feast (which is cooked in a traditional earth oven) or listening to choral singing at a church service. They’ll also steer you toward Aitutaki, an atoll with a turquoise lagoon ideal for snorkeling, diving, bonefishing, and simply idling.
