Samoa’s Eco Cultural Adventure Tours

Lalotalie ECAT Ventures – Samoa’s best kept secret
What does ECAT stand for? – Eco Cultural Adventure Tourism.
And what does that mean? Simply … untouched, untouched, untouched tourism!

Lalotalie is pioneering the unique combination of Eco-Cultural Adventure Tourism (ECAT) in Samoa, by encompassing the three cores of ‘real and raw’ hospitality: conserving the natural beauty of Faleaseéla/Matafaá’s environmental attractions, preserving local village life and traditions and promoting healthy, life-changing adventure within the ever-present essence of FaáSamoa (the way the Samoans pray, think and do.)

Join Our Famous Waterfall Hike

Allow our local guides to take you to explore the rainforest, waterfalls and secluded beaches where only a few adventure seekers go. Lalotalie features include the premier waterfall hike in Samoa, possibly the Pacific – JUMP, CLIMB, go BEHIND, go DOWN and AROUND 16 small, bigger and HIGHEST waterfalls! To be conquered or to be merely admired, that’s the question. Guiding you through safely is our utmost priority. Be wild at heart and expect the unexpected!


Looking to Relax and Unwind?

Visit us at our riverside piece of paradise and you will experience ancient Polynesian culture living out traditions of times gone past in a pristine environment. Lalotalie literally means under the Talie tree a wide, circular, umbrella shaped leafy tree providing a shady place and shelter from the sun and rain. A quiet place to meet, rest, eat, drink and sleep.
