Tonga: Vava’u Islands

8 & 10 Day Trip

explore tonga’s vava’u archipelago

Located 240 kilometres north of Tongatapu, the Vava’u group comprises 50 islands within a 23 by 25-kilometre area. Shielded by a curved reef, the closely knit Vava’u archipelago is a sea kayaker’s haven.

During our Tonga kayak expeditions, we blend leisure with adventure. We paddle mornings, reserving afternoons for snorkelling vibrant coral reefs, exploring tropical forests, and experiencing village life. Vava’u retains its serene pace from a century ago. Evenings find us on untouched beaches under the Southern Cross, embraced by the South Pacific’s warm breezes.
