Located about halfway between Hawai'i and New Zealand in the Polynesian region of the Pacific Ocean, Samoa is an archipelago gorgeous islands. Upolu is the most populated island and hosts Apia, the capital city of Samoa; the other main island is Savai'i. Like so many islands in the South Pacific, the Samoan islands all have volcanic origins, but fortunately most of the volcanoes in this region are currently dormant; only Savai'i has experienced recent eruptions and could be considered volcanically active. Its combination of tropical climate and fertile soil make Samoa a perfect environment for rainforests, mangrove swamps and other lush landscapes, all alive with native wildlife and tropical plants. This is a place where you can truly return to paradise.

Bird lovers can wander over to O Le Pupu-Pue National Park, a rainforest full of walking tracks and dozens of different species of birds. For a change of pace, you can enjoy the scenic walk through lush rainforest up to the top of Mt. Vaea, where Robert Louis Stevenson rests in peace - the views over Apia and the lagoon are simply stunning. A drive up to Upolu's mountainous Le Mafa Pass will reward you with spectacular views of in all directions. Upolu also features spectacular waterfalls, including the 100-metre high Papapapai-Tai Falls and the Togitogiga Waterfalls with its swimming holes and perfect picnic locations.

The island of Savai'i is another tropical treasure trove, offering everything from unspoilt marine life and breath-taking waterfalls, to caves, blowholes and rich rainforests teeming with birds and other wildlife. The island's most dramatic geological feature is the Saleaula lava fields - 50 square kilometres of barren, wrinkly lava tongues that are the aftermath of an eruption by Mt. Matavanu just over 100 years ago. The Falealupo Rainforest Reserve on Savai'i, a serene piece of paradise, provides the perfect contrast to Saleaula's stark beauty. Travellers on cheap holidays to Samoa can walk along a 40-metre high, tree-top walkway through giant Banyan trees during their visit to this scenic treasure. Pulemelei Pyramid is also worth a visit while exploring Savai'i - at 12 metres tall, it's the largest ancient structure in Polynesia. The Alofaaga Blowholes, near Savai'i's Taga village, are natural power at its purest, propelling a water jet hundreds of feet into the air. The interior of Savai'i also features its share of waterfalls: the Afu Aau waterfall plunges from the rainforest into a deep pool; and the Mu Pagoa falls, where Samoa's largest river meets the open ocean, is a favourite playground for village children. Samoan women sometimes use this safe and shallow falls to wash their laundry.
