Lord Howe Island is one of the most naturally beautiful islands in the world with its long Fiji-blue lagoon protected by the world's most southerly coral reef and two mountains that wouldn't look out of place in Tahiti. It's a barefoot kind of place, a place to get back to simple pleasures, and perfect for adventure travellers and nature lovers.

This tour requires a medium level of fitness due to the walking activities.  Walking Poles are recommended.

As many of the activities included are weather and tide-dependent, the order of the itinerary may change.
