About the magical Cook Islands…

Located halfway between Sydney and Hawaii, the Cook Islands is paradise undiscovered. With an intoxicating blend of rare beauty and idyllic climate, the unrivalled Cook Islands offers a surprising amount to see and do for all.

The nation consists of 15 islands with a total population of approx 19,000 scattered over some 2 million square kilometres of the Pacific Ocean. They lie in the centre of the Polynesian Triangle, flanked to the west by The Kingdom of Tonga and the Samoas, and to the east by Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.  The beauty and charm of the islands is matched only by the friendliness of her people.  Here among your island friends, you will find the hospitality warm and spontaneous, the music and dancing exuberant, and the mood relaxed … we look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful “Cooks!”

 

The Cook Islands culture is cherished by all. Even those who come to get away from it all will discover the many occasions in everyday life allow an insight into Polynesian identity which will enrich and enlighten the experience of the Pacific during a Cook Islands holiday.

Festivals, sports, arts, reunions, weddings, politics, parties, competitions such as Vaka Eiva, and celebrations like the Te Maeva Nui Constitution week, are vital ingredients of an island lifestyle that thrives on its heritage.

 

Testimonials

“Our Uplift tour to the Cook Islands has been the most memorable trip in our retirement years!  From pickup to return to our front door the tour was truly magical.  The entire package was filled with fun, food and such good humour from the Uplift staff and gentle Island people. It was such a wonderful and fulfilling cultural experience, we didn’t want to come home. Thank you Claire.” John and Diana E, Bribie Island.
