TO HAWAII, US
15 NIGHTS/6 STOPS
An environmentally diverse archipelago with breath-taking landscapes, desirable climate, and a memorable ambience.
“Having already explored the main US attractive national parks and cities, we vouched for a change of scenery and organized a beach holiday in remote United States islands. We explored 4 out of 6 islands of the Hawaiian archipelago over the course of 5 days. This gave us enough time to explore the islands in depth. The sunsets and biodiversity was incredible and these locations are a paradise for hikers, snorkelers, and surfers. Each step of the trip was a new adventure as the climate varied from rainforests to volcanic areas. This was a child-friendly itinerary and ideal for an active family! Our kids especially loved going to the beach, snorkeling with turtles, and swimming under water falls. We are proud to share this itinerary and highly encourage it! »
