What our specialists say...
This itinerary encompasses the two main islands of the Cooks Island archipelago. You will start in Rarotonga, which is the main hub for the Cook Islands and therefore a great place to learn about the local culture and traditional way of life. You will then move on to Aitutaki, which epitomises the iconic paradise island getaway, complete with clear blue lagoon waters, white sandy beaches and an array of marine life to keep you occupied. This is the perfect itinerary for a relaxing holiday or honeymoon.
