A place where pure white sand exists in abundance, where the water is truly so blue you can see through it, where local culture is so uniquely preserved that locals are genuinely happy to show it to you. With world-class snorkelling, diving and swimming, the Cook Islands are unlike anywhere else in the world—a virtually untouched paradise in the Pacific.
Ready to go? Here’s your chance.
Outpost is giving away a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the Cook Islands. You’ll get round-trip flights, a taste of the islands’ unique Polynesian cuisine, the chance to indulge in island water sports, and a glimpse of a true paradise.
If you want fresh fish, you’ve got to get it from the local fishermen. Get your food from the ocean to your plate in mere hours, and you’ll understand the difference between farmed seafood and the real thing. Paired with organic vegetables grown in rich volcanic soil, there’s hardly a healthier, tastier way to chow down in the Pacific.
The Cook Islands’ distinct culture flows far beyond its dances, buildings and history. It’s celebrated in everyday life. Frequent cultural shows will showcase groups of fire-dancers and rhythmic wooden drums, while locals indulge in musical performances and local cuisine daily. Here you can discover unique crafts such as the islands’ colourful quilts (Tivaevae, they’re called), try out a handmade ukulele or learn the language from friendly islanders.
