Vaka Eiva (Canoeing Festival)


Vaka Eiva has come from small beginnings in 2004 to become the largest international annual event in the Cook Islands and is now an established event on the international paddling calendar. We combine the spectacle of competitive paddling with more laid back “fun in the sun” events served up with the inimitable Cook Islands hospitality – a weeklong paddling festival with something for everyone!
