From an idyllic, tropical paradise to nearly deserted atolls, the Cook Islands have everything you need for an island getaway in the South Pacific. Formed by underwater volcanos, these islands off the coast of New Zealand are full of wildlife and gorgeous views. Finish up that last hilarious cat video streamed from in-flight Wi-Fi and grab your bags. You’re in for an adventure!
Most of Wotif’s flights to the Cook Islands land in Rarotonga International Airport (RAR). From there, short puddle-jumping flights are available to help you explore the 15 inhabited islands that span more than 2.2 million square km. That’s a lot of ocean! If you’d rather get in touch with the deep blue sea, you can often find a freighter to haul you from island to island.
If you arrive in the morning, you’ll have plenty of time to catch a flight to Aituataki Airport for a kayak through Aitutaki Lagoon. It might be the most beautiful place you visit. If Wotif’s Cook Islands flights deposit you in the afternoon, grab some sand along Nikao Lagoon and sunbathe until the sun sets over the turquoise water. If you land at night, pig out on some local cuisine, like ika mata (raw fish with coconut milk and vegetables) or poke (cooked fruit pudding) before checking into your accommodation in the Cook Islands.
Anglin’ for some, well, anglin’? Book a fishing charter and you might reel in marlin, wahoo, yellowfin, barracuda and more. For a side of tropical paradise that most visitors don’t see, check out the Cook Island Christian Church, the first mission on the islands, built in 1849. Whether you’re into fishin’ or missions, you can use Cook Islands holiday packages to start building your escape.
