Leave your worries behind & escape to the radiant & carefree islands of Tahiti & Moorea on this exhilarating & affordable jaunt through French Polynesia. Escorted by your private guide, begin your tour in the Tahitian capital of Papeete, which is rich in history & natural splendor.
From the blooming sanctuary of the Vaipahi Gardens, the colourful artwork at the Gauguin Museum, the bewitching black-sand beaches to its stunning & bounteous waterfalls, Papeete is a city not soon forgotten. Board a ferry to the idyllic island paradise of Moorea, where the azure sea is met by a mountainous landscape. Take a dip in the untainted waters of the island’s unearthly lagoon, discover the dreamlike world under the water’s surface & languish on its white sand beaches. Featuring private guide, tranquil accommodations, scenic ferry ride, picnic lunch by the sea & more.
WIth over 200 stands selling products from every island in the archipelago, one's senses take a nose dive into complete Polynesian immersion. Taste the fresh pineapple, smell the vanilla, and marvel at the variety of black Tahitian pearls. The flower market impresses visitors and natives alike, selling tropical hibiscus, tiare, and cana. You might want to take note that merchandise sold in the market is a fraction of the price compared to items bought on neighboring islands.
The smaller half of Tahiti, Tahiti Iti, is a bit more rugged and not as easy to access as Tahiti Nui. Its pristine white beaches at Maui beach and the black sand on the shore of Teahupoo, are worth crossing the plateau of Taravao. For those of you looking for a little more adventure, try hiking the Pari trail, between Teahupoo and Tautira. This two day hike crosses over some of the more rigorous points in Tahit.
A nice and easy hike in the valley between mount Marau, Diadem and Aorai (whose three peaks overlook Papeeete) up to the top of an idllic waterfall. In order to have access to the trail, you will need to ask for a 'right to enter' pass from the town hall. The trail is open Monday-Friday from 7:30-1:30pm. The site is accessible by car or by bus.
