Rarotonga, Cook Islands
Hiking the Pacific IslandsMost people think of beaches when they think of the Cook Islands, but the hiking can be fantastic as well. This was mid-trail in a route in Raratonga that takes you from the north of the island to the south, and up some of of the highest peaks.
The hikes here aren't too crazy, I wore converse and we just brought some snacks and a bottle of water. As long as you don't lose your way, you can hike across the entire island in half a day.
