Situated at the very centre of Polynesia, a mere four-hour flight from New Zealand, the #CookIslands is an archipelago nation comprised of 15 islands. It is spread across an area in the South Pacific three times the size of Texas.
According to legend, these tiny islands, dotted amongst the vast ocean, were discovered thousands of years ago by the very finest Polynesian seafarers. Guided by the stars and using other sophisticated navigation techniques, they landed their legendary double hulled Vakas and set about creating paradise.
It has been almost 250 years since Captain Cook became the first European to discover these islands and yet there is a gentle timelessness that endures here. #Vacation here and discover the generous rhythm and warm hospitality of the Cook Islands for yourself.
For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
