Engage with Select Artists, See Vibrant Artwork & Indulge in our Heritage


This is a must-see experience for any visitor looking for a taste of Cook Island's art and history. I will take you on a step-by-step tour to meet only a select few talented artists and explore their dazzling array of paintings, drawings, and sculptures, all of which paint a striking picture of Cook Island's rich artwork.

Itinerary

I arrive at your accommodation or preferred place of pick up and we talk about the exciting new places we will be visiting and exploring. We begin our tour by visiting a local village in Muri where a well-known local artist is situated - she has exquisite artwork and is very talented, you are amazed by her beautiful art that is displayed in her gallery. We also visit another local artist who paints, sculptures, and does woodcarving. He's so passionate about his work and it shows in his beautiful art. He is very talented. You don't want to leave! We stop on a nearby beach to have our snacks and try out a Coconut Nu fresh from a coconut tree before we embark on the next journey which is a newly built museum in Muri. It holds alot of interesting facts of our Cook Island rich history, it will help you to understand a little more of who we are as a country, a beautiful culture living on 15 beautiful Islands. Our tour ends and you now know why we are considered, the most friendliest people in the Pacific Islands.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: At your preferred port or accommodation location. Will pick you up at your designated area. Please ensure you let us know exactly where you will be.
