    Arrival 25/09/2018 at 12.30pm. Departure 25/09/2018 at 6pm.

    Day 3 – 26 September 2018 – Alofi Futuna

    Arrival 26/09/2018 at 2pm. Departure 26/09/2018 at 9pm.

    Day 4 – 27 September 2018 – Mata Utu

    Arrival 27/09/2018 at 11am. OVERNIGHT

    Traveling to Mata-Utu, the capital of the Polynesian islands of Wallis and Futuna, is like traveling to an entirely different world. Located on the island of Wallis, the town is surrounded by thick jungles and home a fascinating, traditional culture.  The inhabitants have kept their culture remarkably intact in the face of a strong French presence and an influx of Catholicism. 

    One of the reasons that Mata-Utu and Wallis have maintained their culture is because there has never been a big push for tourism, and there are no plans for one in the future. This means that traveling to the island is often expensive and difficult, but it also means that you will not do battle for space with heaps of honeymooners or waves of package tourists upon arrival.

    The Wallis archipelago is encircled by a lagoon that is surrounded by a coral reef. An impressive array of marine fauna thrives in and around the waters, including endemic species like the chestnut-breasted munia, mayna birds and white-collared kingfishers. Cool shade is provided by colorful hibiscus trees, many varieties of bamboo, banana trees, coconut palms and breadfruit trees.

    One of the most beautiful places on the island is Laoalo Lake, a crater lake that reaches depths of 262 feet and is ringed by cliffs reaching heights of 98 feet. The little fishing village of Vailala is close by, and so are the remains of Tonga Toto, a fortress that looked over the sea dating from the 15th century. Each of these sites can be accessed by the island’s 21-mile coastal route.

    Day 5 – 28 September 2018 – Mata Utu

    Many of the activities in Samoa involve Samoa’s pristine land and seascapes; here are some ideas to experience the best of Samoa’s enchanting white sand beaches, truly turquoise lagoons, shimmering waterfalls and forest-clad volcanic ridges.  

    Aside from the must see and do attractions of these beautiful islands, you will find there are many ways to experience Samoa. Tour the islands by bicycle, scuba dive or snorkel beneath the surface of the ocean, catch the big one – be that a wave or a fish  – in an offshore adventure, or have your every tension and worry massaged away.

    Arrival 01/10/2018 at 7am. Departure 01/10/2018 at 6pm.

    Tapuaetai (One Foot Island), a small islet in the south-east of the lagoon, is often said to be the most important attraction. It is regarded as providing the visitor with the best views of the Aitutaki lagoon and, depending on the tide, one is able to walk on a sandbank a decent distance away from Tapuaetai.
