    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain

    DEPART SYDNEY

    You'll travel to Samoa on an overnight flight and the great thing is you don’t miss out on any time in paradise.

    DAY 1: ARRIVE IN SAMOA

    You'll land on Upolu island at Apia and pick up your car. You'll be returning to Apia later in the trip so today you'll take the ferry across to Savai’i Island. We will pre-book the ferry for you because it can get busy. On the way there's some beautiful scenery and this is why you need a car in Samoa, so you can stop and check out all the beauty these islands have to offer.


    Your resort bungalow

    Once you get to the north of Savai’i you can check into your resort and revel in the luxury of this accommodation. Now you are free to relax at the resort or start exploring Samoa.

    DAY 2: SAVAI'I

    Today we recommend driving to the south coast of Savai’i to see the wonderous Afu Aau Waterfall, a spectacular sight that flows into a refreshing freshwater swimming pool. Also check out the Alofaaga Blowholes, a rare natural phenomenon that is exciting and fun to watch. Later, for some island hospitality, head to Salelologa and try the traditional dishes and super-fresh seafood at CC’s Restaurant and Bar.

    DAY 3: SAVAI’I

    The northern coast beckons, and our highest recommendation is the "Savai’i Swimming with Turtles" experience, less than 5 minutes away from your resort. Then to see the true power of nature go see the awe-inspiring lava fields and caves of the Central North Coast, as well as the formidable Mt Matavanu, a truly captivating sight. For a foodie’s dream try the choices on offer at scrumptious Amoa Restaurant and experience the best food on the island.

    DAY 4: UPOLU - SA'ANAPU

    This morning you'll say Tofa soifua (a sincere goodbye) to your resort hosts to take the ferry back to Upolu. From the ferry you will be heading south to your next accommodation.


    The coves of Matareva

    Here you can relax by the beach in your bungalow or explore the coves of Matareva nearby. These delightful shallow pools are great for snorkelling or just enjoy the calm, warm waters.

    DAY 5: AUFAGA

    This morning after breakfast and more charming hospitality we're heading west to our next destination, Aufaga. On the way, be sure to see the incredibly tall Papapapaitai Falls and the magnificent O Le Pupu-Pu’e National Park. Here you can hike through wonderous rainforest, see lava tubes, and a hugely impressive rainforest tree. Once you are exhausted from all the beauty, check-in to the award-winning resort you will be calling home for the next few nights.

    DAY 6: FUIPISIA WATERFALL AND TO SUA TRENCH

    The eastern side of Upolu is known for its beautiful beaches and excellent snorkelling reefs. If you can want to do something other than relaxing with a cool drink, we recommend you see To Sua Trench, a local icon and beautiful swimming hole, with green draped walls. You won’t want to miss it.


    To Sua Ocean Trench

    Everything is relaxed here so take your time to explore places like Aganoa beach.

    DAY 7: LALOMANU BEACH

    Today we highly recommend you check out the pristine beauty of Lalomanu Beach. There is plenty to do, relaxing in the crystal blue water, basking in the sun of the pure white sand, or seeing the beauty in the water by snorkelling and seeing the many varieties of tropical fish.

    DAY 8: APIA

    Today while travelling to Apia you will get the opportunity to see sights like the Piula Cave Pool, two freshwater grottoes underneath a college. Nearby is the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, the homestead he and his family lived in is a lovingly kept museum to his life and works; and the magnificent Mt Vaea. Check into your hotel in Apia, and and explore some of the other local attractions, then for dinner try Palusami, a restaurant that uses local produce to create Samoan and international fusion dishes.

    DAY 9: APIA

    Today you have the opportunity to explore Apia the nation’s capital in more depth. The Maketi Fou, the main market is a must-see. And for the freshest lunch in Samoa head to the Fish Market for fish and chips.


    Samoan cultural village dancers

    After lunch be sure to go see the incredible Samoan Cultural Village (entry is free) for an informative and fun exploration of Samoan culture.

    DAYS 10 TO 12: BONUS FREE NIGHTS

    JUST RELEASED: We have a special deal with three of the resorts in this package to offer you 2 FREE NIGHTS to extend your stay. Some exclusion dates apply.

    DAY 12: FLY HOME

    Before your flight back we recommend heading to Vaiala Beach for some more time in the sun, or for some pampering before you leave. Check out "A Touch of Samoa", the most popular spa in Apia.

    "Hi, have finally returned. Wonderful, wonderful trip. We think we loved Paris and its age/artworks but all was full of laughter fun and learning. Paris apartment was beautiful, & quiet when windows were closed, which wasn't bad anyway. The street is full of lots of restaurants and cafe's. (we also loved Shakespeare & co bookshop.) Fruit and chocolates in most rooms and champagne which I think we only drank in Brussels. we were ready for bed everywhere else though we almost had it for morning tea at Amsterdam on check in. Magnificent. Cheers." Val C.

    "Have just returned from our wonderful trip to the UK. Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your organisation, we had the best holiday ever, an absolutely marvellous time, the tour was magnificent. We would recommend the Trafalgar Britain and Ireland Winter delights tour to anyone who wants to do adventurous travel, learning about other countries, and making friends. The coach was actually over half full of Aussies! Thanks so much for organising such a memorable holiday for us." Lee D.

    "Deb and I are very grateful for the work you have put into our holiday. 10 days in and we are blown away by the quality and location of the motels and apartments. Many thanks." Jen W.

    "My husband and I have recently returned from a holiday to Canada and Alaska booked through Australian Escapes. The itinerary was planned to take in all aspects of the holiday we required. The travel transfers worked seamlessly and the accommodation was at a standard that met our expectations of comfort and location. We absolutely loved the cruise and surprise upgrade to our stateroom. From our experience with this recent trip I would recommend Australian Escapes." Margaret & Bill T.

    "We've arrived back safely after a thoroughly enjoyable trip where all the arrangements ran like clockwork, for which we want to thank you and your team, especially Sonya and Skye. We'd have no hesitation in recommending you and Volga Dream cruises to anyone who asks. Kind regards and thanks again." Irene and Blake S.

    "I want to thank you for all the accommodation you arranged for us during our holiday in North Queensland in August. It was all excellent. The transfers went very smoothly too and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our holiday. Thank you for making everything so easy." Gloria K.

    "My life has been like a whirlwind since I got back. I am now on holidays and catching up with people that I have not had time to contact since coming back. Thank you so much for organising my trip to The States and Canada for me. I had a great time and everything went really well. All flights went well. The hotel you booked me into in Champaign was a really old home with beautiful gardens, all done up and run by two gay guys. It was really quaint and I loved it. I had a great time, everything went without a hitch, I loved all the accommodation that you organized for me and I would like to wish you a happy Christmas and all the best." Marlene S.

    "A message of thanks to you and your staff. The holiday went off without any problems and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and and had a wonderful time. Again many thanks." Dianne D.

    "We are back and rested after a hectic few weeks (away), but everything worked out extremely well. Thanks so much for all your organisation – once you get used to the trains and buses, life becomes easy. Once again, thanks to you and the team for all the organisation from both Lorraine and I – we really enjoyed the holiday. All the best." Bob C.

    "We just wanted to let you know that the arrangements you put in place for us in WA worked beautifully. You said the Margaret River accommodation was exceptional and it certainly was both in terms of location and facilites. Thanks again." Betty and Clancy S.
