Explore Rarotonga's pristine natural beauty in an exciting way during this off-road tour of the island's stunning lagoons, valleys and inland villages.
Depart the pier in an off-road vehicle for a drive to Rarotonga's back roads and valleys. Along the way, you will be privy to sights and sounds regular visitors to the island would not typically have an opportunity to experience. You will learn how traditional Cook Islanders live, and your guide will provide you with an informative commentary on the various traditional uses of the local flora and fauna.
During the course of your tour you will drive into the Avatiu Valley's rainforest, ascend to the top of Hospital Heights where you are treated to extraordinary views, and visit Wigmores waterfall and Papaaroa Beach. As you complete your navigation of the island, you will stop off at the Marae to view the sacred stones, before returning to the pier where your tour concludes.
