Sail around the black island archipelago and tour New Guinea, Fiji and the Solomon Islands. For idyllic beaches and a peaceful getaway try Guam or Palau. New Zealand and Australia are popular Pacific holiday destinations where you can surf in the summer and snowboard during the winter season.

The Pacific Islands rely upon a domestic flight network to serve the region. Remote islands can be accessed through international hubs in New Zealand with charter flights and boat services also available. Fly from London Heathrow to Auckland International with Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Malaysia Airlines. Kuala Lumpur provides a hub for flights from the United Kingdom. The flight duration is over 24 hours.

From the lagoons of Micronesia to the Great Barrier Reef discover exotic fish and mammals on a diving expedition. No trip would be complete without visiting the ancient structures of Easter Island and for the outdoor adventurer try ice-climbing or bungee jumping at one of New Zealand’s national parks.
