Rich rugby culture
Ancient traditions
Surfing and diving


With its rich rugby culture and laid back lifestyle, the Kingdom of Tonga is a really fascinating place to stop on the way home from a tour to New Zealand.

Situated just east of the international date-line, Tonga is an eclectic country where ancient traditions sit alongside the latest offerings of modern life.

The Kingdom is made up of 170 plus islands, with tiny forested islets calling your name left and right. The Ha’apai Group offers deserted white beaches, vibrant reefs and only a smattering of other tourists. For all the fun in the water that you could reasonably be expected to handle, the Vava’u Group and Eua are the activity holiday destinations of Tonga, with sea kayaking, fishing, surfing and diving available.

Rugby is the national sport and the strength of the national side is well known. Combine a stop in Tonga with a match against a local school and enjoy the hospitality laid on by this nation known as the ‘Friendly Islands’.

Outstanding – It has been well planned and well executed and some of the people we have met along the way have been brilliant. This has been an amazing tour and the girls have experienced so much. It’s a long way to go but absolutely worth it. The girls have benefitted enormously from this tour.
