Talofa lava and welcome to Samoa, the treasured islands of the South Pacific. Samoa is considered the heart of Polynesia. It has a 3000 year-old way of life called Fa’a Samoa that underpins a memorable visitor experience.
Samoa is a postcard of natural beauty consisting of ten islands, each offering very distinct and different environments to explore. Blessed with stunning land and seascapes, and friendly people who are proud of their country, there are many versions of paradise to discover. Drive around in a day, or take a leisurely trip over a few days or even tour by cycle over a week, or just base yourself at a resort and relax.
From the rainforest covered rugged volcanic mountain peaks of Savai’i to the vast valleys leading down to Upolu’s coastline ringed with a necklace of white sandy beaches.
Explore Samoa’s lush green fertile valleys where banyan trees tower above the tropical rainforest canopy. Take time to cool down at a watering hole next to one of Samoa’s many cascading waterfalls that drop into rivers cutting jagged lines through the valley floor as they make their way to the ocean.
