Samoa & Tonga

Samoa & Tonga

The Polynesian islands of Samoa and Tonga, located below the equator halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, are a raw, mostly untouched, natural paradise. They are lined with white-sand beaches, blue lagoons, coral reefs, and sheer cliffs, and filled with lush, untouched rainforests, active volcanoes, and breathtaking waterfalls. Experience the genuine and welcoming cultures of the Samoan and Tongan people who still live a traditional lifestyle; their culture is passed down from generation to generation. Samoa and Tonga offer an authentic island experience, much different from the flashing lights of commercialized tourist destinations. Jump into the sparkling blue waters of the South Pacific and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim alongside majestic humpback whales, soak in the stunning views off the island of Eua, and become enchanted with a performance of song and dance by local school children.
