Day 2- 4 Oahu
You first stop on your Hawaiian adventure is Oahu, where you’ll be picked up from the airport and driven to your hotel for the next three nights, the famous Modern Hotel. Of course, we can also arrange car hire so you can drive yourself around the islands on your very own adventure. The island is also known as ‘the heart of Hawaii’, epitomising the islands’ traditional culture and modern history, of luxurious resorts and manicured pineapple fields, of world-class dining, lively nightlife and sensational surfing. On Oahu you’ll find a sophisticated town vibe, with entertainment, museums, festivals and shopping as well as beautiful beaches and countryside to relax and rejuvenate. Visit Pearl Harbor and see the USS Arizona Memorial constructed astride the sunken battleship.

Day 5 – 7 Maui
Take a short flight to the island of Maui. Here you’ll find dramatic geography alongside world-class resorts and small-town charm with five-star dining. Explore the Haleakala National Park and view Haleakala, the incredible dormant volcano and one of Maui’s most memorable attractions. For those looking for a thrill, biking down Haleakala’s switchbacks is not for the faint hearted, but fast, thrilling and scenic. The island is also known for its championship golf and beautiful white sandy beaches. While there we recommend taking an Atlantis Submarine tour – you will not regret it! And to rest your head? We recommend the fun and comfortable Andaz Maui

Day 8 – 10 Kauai
Kauai is named ‘the garden isle’, as it’s covered with green mountainsides, carved with dramatic cliffs, canyons and drenched with island mystery. Kayaking, quad biking touring, mountain tubing, zip wiring over treetops, surf lessons, catamaran cruises and sailing are a few of the fun activities on offer. Waimea Canyon, nicknamed the Grand Canyan of the Pacific, is perhaps the islands biggest attraction. Sail or take a helicopter tour of Na Pali Coast, wallow in Wailua Falls, watch the glow of active volcano Kilauea, visit pretty Hanalei town and bay and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Limahuli Garden & Preserve. Touring the Kauai Coffee Company and visiting Namahana Farmers market is also a great way to experience Hawaiian life. Kauai’s primitive landscape and local flare gives visitors a truly authentic experience. Here you’ll check into the St Regis for three nights.

Day 11 – 14 Big Island
Your last stop if the iconic Hawaii Island or Big Island, as it’s known. Hawaii Island is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain, but it’s remarkable for more than just its size. Visit Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, or talk stories with a cultural demonstrator at Puuhonua o Honaunau, a historic park that was once a place of refuge. Whether you’re walking on a black sand beach, snorkelling with manta rays, horse riding in Waimea or sailing along the Kona Coast, Hawaii, the Big Island is absolutely the island for adventure. Your last stop is the superb Fairmont Orchid
