HAWAII DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Hawaii in a way like no other. Psychedelic coral swaying beneath turquoise waters and silky beaches with pink, white and black sands. Tropical wildlife and smouldering volcanoes rimmed by lush rainforests. If Mother Nature has ever shown off, it’s in Hawaii. The locals know they’re living in paradise, with aloha ʻaina (love for the land) coursing through their culture. And when you take a Hawaii holiday with Trafalgar, you too will fall in love with this land. Learn to ‘wave slide’ in Waikiki, snorkel with sea turtles, and see the bubbling volcanoes on the Big Island. Discover the vibrant multiculturalism of the islands, as we take you from a sustainable local farm to a traditional Polynesian performance in Maui, or from a Pearl Harbour memorial to the gleaming Kona Hawaii Temple. Hawaii is the perfect place to kick off your shoes and let the aloha wash over you. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
