Cook Islands Tourism releases cool virtual travel planning tool

Font Size:

New Zealand has announced a travel bubble with Cook Islands, and a bubble between New Zealand and Australia is in the bag.

So it’s feasible to say that, in the not-too-distant future, travel to the Cook Islands will be once again become a reality.

To help travellers with Polynesian planning, the Cook Islands has created an all-new virtual reality feature online, showcasing six of their 15 islands.

Virtual planners can navigate their way around popular islands such as Rarotonga and Aitutaki from a computer, tablet or mobile device, while also using the 360-navigation tool for an expanded outlook on accommodation, lagoons, scenic views and sites, plus dining facilities and activity locations.

Take in aerial views of Aitutaki lagoon, place yourself on One Foot Island or snorkel on Muri Lagoon in Rarotonga and plan a picnic spot near Black Rock to sip sunset drinks. Explore accommodation options ranging from self-contained properties to lagoon-facing resorts.

“The new virtual tours and 360-navigation tool allows soon to visit travellers the opportunity to explore, dream and plan ahead for welcomed visitation to the Cook Islands,” said Graeme West, general manager Australasia, Cook Islands Tourism.

Paradise is loading – see www.cookislands.travel to view more 360 Virtual Tours and safety practices, including a CookSafe contact tracing program, ahead of welcoming visitors soon.
