A Rarotongan holiday offers a mix of vibrant, authentic island culture, opportunities for action and adventure, hiking, pony trekking, cultural tours, water sports of every kind - and a real commitment to the joys of relaxing.

Rarotonga has a craggy, tropical jungle-covered volcanic heart. If you're interested in abundant, exotic flora and fauna take a guided trek into the interior. If you're not the mountain climbing type take a bird watching tour in the lower forest - Rarotonga has almost as many beautiful native birds as it has brilliant tropical fish.
