Vaka Eiva

A big week in a little paddling paradise! Come join us to celebrate Vaka Eiva’s 15th Birthday.

Arguably the biggest sporting event in the Cook Islands, Vaka Eiva is an international paddling competition held every November that sees paddlers from all around the world travel to Rarotonga to compete against the best of the best in an intense but fun filled, week-long event.

This festival is more than just competitive challenging canoe racing.  We understand that you, our valued guests travel far to visit our shores and we look forward to sharing with you our beautiful culture, customs, food and entertainment.
