South Pacific Destination Guide
Who hasn’t dreamed of visiting the South Pacific? South Pacific travel destinations such as Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Samoa are synonymous with paradise, and with good reason. These are places where travelers arrive with high expectations and are still blown away. We create customized, luxury Australia and South Pacific tours to these magnificent island nations, where the golden sands, swaying palm trees, and overwater bungalows are even more perfect than you’ve imagined. But this part of the world offers so much more than just idyllic beach escapes. Countries such as Australia and New Zealand have gorgeous beaches too, but they also have cosmopolitan cities and outstanding opportunities for adventure, such as diving and heli-skiing, and Papua New Guinea, one of the most exotic South Pacific travel destinations you can find, offers the chance to meet rainforest tribes who happily live without the “modern conveniences” we depend on. Let us bring you to the most unique and exciting places in the South Pacific, where you’ll have a luxury travel experience that will stay with you forever.
Australia is an endlessly, and deservedly, popular South Pacific travel destination that has something to entice every kind of luxury traveler. Both Sydney and Melbourne are chic, hip cities with excellent food and art scenes. Beyond their city limits, you will be wowed by the country’s diverse geography. When you see the imposing red rocks of the Outback, the rolling Shiraz vineyards of Barossa Valley, and the underwater wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef, you will be so grateful to be in this magical country, and curious why it took you so long to get there.
New Zealand is a South Pacific travel destination that we love returning to for its stunning and varied landscapes of lush hills, snow-capped peaks, glowing glaciers, and picturesque golf courses. There’s so much to do on this island, which is easy to navigate and very friendly, that visitors often feel like they’ve gone on many different South Pacific tours just in the span of a week.
One of the most unique South Pacific travel destinations is Papua New Guinea, where you’ll feel like you’re stepping back into a primordial paradise. Still largely undeveloped, this is a place where you will be awed not just by mother nature’s beauty, but by her strength as well. The jungles are endlessly thick and teeming with animals, and the tribes people within them live as they have for centuries. If you really want to get away from it all—and we mean as far away as humanly possible besides going to the moon—you should take a South Pacific tour here.
The French Polynesian island groups of Tahiti, Bora Bora, and lesser-known Taha, Tikehau, and Moorea are picture-perfect and endlessly romantic, but if you think these South Pacific travel destinations are just for honeymooners, you’re wrong. They are also wonderful for families. These reef-fringed islands have crystal clear waters full of zig-zagging, day-glo fish, and pink sand beaches that will keep everyone happily occupied. And while the ocean may be blissfully calm, the interior is wild and rugged, full of outrageously verdant hills and jagged peaks left over from ancient volcanic explosions.
Fiji is another wondrous travel destination in the South Pacific. It’s as beautiful as all the other islands, and has its own distinct and diverse heritage—an intriguing mix of Polynesian, Indian, Chinese, and European cultures. This makes it a truly enchanting place with many cultural activities to offer, such as traditional dancing, kava drinking ceremonies, and outrigger canoeing.
Whichever one of our South Pacific travel destinations you choose to visit, you will return from your trip rejuvenated and full of stories to share. Of course, it’s possible you won’t actually return at all—this part of the world is so heavenly and enchanting, and our South Pacific tours are so perfect, that we’ve seen plenty of visitors turn into full-time residents, and we absolutely understand why.
