How to Spend 1 Week in Niue: A Selection of 7-Day Itineraries

A week (or technically eight days due to the flight schedule) is a good amount of time to experience “The Rock of the Pacific”. You’ll have time to explore some of the coral atoll’s dramatic coastal landscapes and snorkelling spots, as well as do some of those bucket list activities, from whale swimming to scuba diving. In our list of the best Niue itineraries for one week, we go through various itineraries to suit different styles of travel. You’ll find a week-long holiday plan to suit, whether you’re seeking a budget getaway or a honeymoon in paradise.

What You Need to Know About Spending a Week in Niue

Things work a little differently in Niue than what you might be used to, so here are some useful things to keep in mind when planning a one-week getaway:

  • Niue has a limited weekly flight schedule so plan your itinerary accordingly. All of our itineraries give an extra day for departure
  • Niue is a small island, so basing yourself in the same accommodation for the entire week usually makes more sense than changing accommodations and destinations throughout
  • With limited transport on the island, hiring a car or an e-bike for the week is highly recommended
  • Check the tide timetable with your accommodation or the Visitor Information Centre to see when is the best time to visit the west coast snorkelling spots – this may also determine when you visit Niue
  • No tours operate on Sundays.

Now, let’s get to our compilation of one-week itineraries for Niue…
