Frist ais certified and be reassured you are in good hands. Hike with confidence.

The Cross Island Trek is considered the best hike on Rarotonga boasting exceptional views of the island and an authentic experience through nature’s best. It is approximately a 3 - 3.5 hour productive tour that offers a strenuous popular 2-mile hiking adventure. Rarotonga is rich in its culture, people and history.

Starting from the northern side of the island deep within the Avatiu Valley, you journey through Rarotonga’s jungle which leads up to the base of the pinnacle, buried within the mountains and over streams that pass through steep inclines.

The half way point brings you to Te Rua Manga – The Needle, the volcanic heart and the most recognizable high peaks of the island. The vertical cylinder-like rock is an estimate of 65 - 85m high. The climb is absolutely challenging, but is definitely rewarding. Te Rua Manga is probably the best known landmark on the island.

Following the ridge down through a canopy of native florae, your tour guide will recite legends and folklore about warriors and maidens that once walked the trek. You will also learn the signifi-cance of the plant life that is used for medicinal purposes. You are then led down through Papua Valley crossing streams before finishing at Papua Waterfall for a rejuvenating cool off. To end your tour, fresh fruits and light refreshments will be provided.
