What you can expect
Your tour begins when you are collected off the ferry arriving at 9:15am at the Salelologa wharf terminal.
It starts off with a brief visit to the very colourful Salelologa market, and then heads off down the south coast. This drive will take you through several small coastal villages and lush rainforest area. Stops are made at various natural attractions such as the fresh water springs, and Taga sea arches as well as areas of historical significance.
The highlight of this tour is the arrival at the Taga blowholes which are spectacular in sight and force. Natural tubes in lava rock meeting the ocean allow for ocean swells to shoot water in jet streams as high as 30-meters into the air.
Another popular stop is a “Tapa cloth” or “Siapo” making demonstration. Siapo, is an age old traditional art Samoans have used since the beginning of time to decorate and clothe. Siapo is a type of paper made from pounded bark. A Siapo making demonstration is a delightful experience where you will be taken to the fale (house) of some local Samoan women who will run you through the process, from collecting the raw products from the environment surrounding them, to the final piece of fine artwork.
Heading back into Salelologa stops are made at the fresh water springs and eventually our beautiful Afu Aáu falls where a rock pool at the base of a waterfall allows for a swimming break. Lunch will be provided after this stop .
You are ensured that every site you visit is not just a picture opportunity but a chance to learn a little about the island and people. There will be provided ongoing commentary on history, culture and heritage on what you see, and why things are the way they are in Savaii.
