The 15 Cook Islands, which lie roughly 3,000 km north-east of Auckland, are tiny flecks in a vast expanse of ocean. The northern group are mainly low-lying atolls, while the southern group are primarily volcanic and generally have higher relief. The islands lie roughly midway between Tahiti in the east and American Samoa to the west.
