Island Hopping

Between April and Mid December Air Rarotonga flies non-stop between Aitutaki and Atiu every Monday, Wednesday and Friday making it convenient to visit both Aitutaki and Atiu in a single itinerary. On a clear day the forty-five minute direct flight will treat you to spectacular views of the uninhabited islands of Manuae and Takutea en-route.

Starting December 2, 2015 Air Rarotonga also operates a once weekly service from Atiu to Aitutaki every Wednesday.

Our Aitutaki/Atiu two island four night combo includes round trip air fares from Rarotonga, Aitutaki and Atiu airport transfers, and two nights accommodation each at Tamanu Beach Hotel and Atiu Villas with complimentary island (continental) breakfast. Prices are for twin share accommodation with a single room supplement available at an additional charge. (Wednesday departures include two nights Aitutaki, and three nights Atiu).

After enjoying Aitutaki's spectacular lagoon, Atiu provides a contrast with its rugged coastline, makatea caves, tranquil rainforest and exotic and native bird life.

Atiu Villas feature studio units made of local timbers and have kitchenettes with a stocked larder for those who wish to cook for themselves and 'Kura's Kitchen' is available to provide daily meals to order.


If you plan to do some activities during your stay in Aitutaki we recommend the Vaka Cruise. which you can ask to have added to your tour as you make your booking or you can book it once on the island as it operates daily except Sundays.

Experiences available in Atiu include guided bird life tours, cave exploration, visits to the local coffee factory and the 'tumunu' - the evening traditional bush beer school.

Building your own Trip

You may want to choose to build your own itinerary and here is how:

Our flights between Rarotonga, Aitutaki and Atiu are operating on regular schedules but we recommend to only try to book this excursion as three separate one way trips:

  • Rarotonga to Aitutaki (daily departures)
  • Aitutaki to Atiu (departures scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from April to November otherwise on Wednesdays only)
  • Atiu to Rarotonga (departures scheduled daily except Tuesday and Sunday)
  • Starting December 2015 Air Rarotonga also operates a once weekly Atiu - Aitutaki flight on Wednesdays making it possible to undertake the tour in the opposite direction.
