From chartering a boat to Honeymoon Island with only a towel and a bottle of champagne, to climbing the rock face of Rarotonga's Needle on a Cross-Island Trek, to sipping Tumunu bush beer in Atiu, or hearing the lulls of humpback whales as you dive the turquoise waters of Aitutaki, every traveler has their own experience they desire to curate while on vacation. Good news: in the Cook Islands, you have the freedom to do just that.
