The Cook Islands and Tahiti

Tahiti and her islands, a legendary South Pacific island destination where French flair blends with Polynesia. Paul Gauguin painted her, Michener wrote of her charms.

From Papeete it is only a 30 minute ferry ride to scenic Moorea or you can catch domestic flights with Air Tahiti to no less than 42 destinations in French Polynesia.

Since April 2007, Air Rarotonga and Air Tahiti have operated weekly code-shared service between Rarotonga and Tahiti with quiet and comfortable Air Tahiti ATR72 and ATR42 regional turbo-prop aircraft, providing travellers with fabulous dual-destination options.
