6. Walk the Cross Island Hike

This is one of the best ways to explore Rarotonga’s lush scenery and although the hike does take about 4 hours, it is completely worth it. The hike starts off in the dense forest from the north coast and winds its way up to the base of “the Needle”, a steel bald rock which points straight up into the air. Climbing the needle is only for the serious rock climbers and other hikers can enjoy the beautiful views over the coast. The trail then continues past Wigmore Falls which are beautiful after a heavy rainfall with a pool at their base. The trail takes hikers all the way to the opposite end of the island providing incredible scenery throughout.
