Cruise crystalline lagoons and enjoy the warmest of welcomes on our Cook Islands holidays.

Diving with sharks, hiking through unspoilt rainforest and soaking up unbelievable South Pacific sunsets — holidays to the Cook Islands are the quintessential romantic adventure. Captain James Cook visited these beautiful islands in 1773 and 1777 but only actually set foot on one of the tiny uninhabited atolls, so it’s perhaps fitting that they remain pretty undiscovered even today. You’ll find pristine powdery sand, turquoise waters and wide-ranging watersports both in volcanic Rarotonga, the largest of all the islands, and coral-fringed Aitutaki, whose vast azure lagoon makes for a breathtaking sight from the air and one of the most romantic spots on Earth. Visit your local store and we’ll help you plan your perfect Cook Islands holiday.
