Your adventure begins with a drive through the vibrant capital. From the bustling downtown area, turn off the main road to begin your amazing 4x4 adventure. Travel along the beautiful east coast to the abundant hilly interior of this mystical Island.
Papenoo Valley is the largest in Tahiti, with a dramatic bridge which spans the island’s longest river. Passing through the Papenoo Valley is as exciting as it is exotic. You’ll traverse the interior of the island following the line of the cascading valley, rich in archaeological sites, spectacular views of impressive waterfalls. See the cooling mountain streams and vertical cliff faces, laced with green vines and tropical vegetation.
Hear about Tahiti's large native population, who used to live within the valley walls, and see where these inhabitants grew their crops. You’ll visit French Polynesia's only lake, a place which not only boasts an interesting history, but has incredibly beautiful surroundings.
