Travellers are beginning to realise that there’s more to the South Pacific than cruise ships and resorts.

These islands – and there’s a lot of them – offer a wealth of cultural and adventure activities. An Intrepid tour or expedition can take you trekking to a volcano in Vanuatu, snorkelling with turtles in the Solomon Islands, hiking the historic Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea, meeting a Cook Islands warrior or experiencing Fiji’s unbeatable hospitality and unforgettable sunsets. Wherever you go, you’ll go adventurously. And isn’t that what life’s about?
