Plus, the weather in Hawaii is fairly consistent year round, making it the perfect sun destination in any season. Due to the length of the flight, Eastern Canadians should plan to spend approximately 10 to 14 days, while westerners can enjoy a full trip in seven days.

Touring Hawaiian Islands
Hawaii consists of six islands—Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Hawaii and Lanai—each island is magnificently different. Many first-time visitors combine just two to three islands in their tour, generally beginning in Honolulu on Oahu. From here, visitors can choose from multiple inter-island flights just a hop, skip and a jump away.
Waikiki is a large bustling city with tall, skyscraper buildings and hotels. It offers countless dining options from fast food to fine dining. Must-sees on Oahu include the Pearl Harbour memorial, Diamond Head and the Polynesian Cultural Centre. Many first-time visitors find three to four days is sufficient to explore Oahu.
The Magic Isle, popular among beach lovers, Maui offers a variety of condo-style/self-catering accommodations. Lahaina, a historic whaling town, is now a trendy place to visit with numerous art galleries and restaurants worth exploring. Tour Maui between December and May to do some Humpback whale watching!
The Island of Discovery, Kaui offers a laid back atmosphere with several small towns to explore. Hawaii’s fourth largest island, sometimes called “the Garden Isle,” Kaui boasts breathtaking emerald valleys, mountains and cliffs, tropical rainforests and waterfalls.
The Big Island, Hawaii is home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Hawaii tours also draw avid hikers and golfers, and luxury travellers are welcome at the many world-class resorts perched atop the black volcanic sand beaches.
The Island of Molokai is quiet, secluded and timeless—an undiscovered island. Laws are in place to ensure that no buildings are built taller than a coconut tree. It’s the perfect place to go hiking or take a mule ride along the coastal cliffs.
Lanai is known as Hawaii’s most enticing island, with its romantic, tranquil ambiance. With no traffic or traffic signals, and only 30 miles of paved road, the best way to get off the beaten track is by renting a 4WD vehicle.
