Duration: 4 hours

Tour Code: PPT-003

Explore a side of Tahiti not commonly seen by visitors during a scenic off-road journey through this idyllic island.

Depart the pier with your guide in an off-road vehicle for the scenic drive through Tahiti's pristine interior. You will then drive towards the east coast, and on to the Papenoo Valley. Along the way, you will pass by cascading waterfalls, luxuriant tropical vegetation, exotic flowers and lush valleys offering wonderful views and photo opportunities. You may opt to take a refreshing dip in a river while en route.

Following your tour, you will be returned to the pier.

Please note: As this tour involves travel in off-road vehicles over bumpy surfaces, guests with back and/or neck problems are discouraged from participating. The itinerary may be modified due to weather conditions. Guests who wish to take a dip in the waterfall's pool should wear a swimsuit under a cover-up, and bring a towel from the ship. There are no changing facilities. Sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses are strongly advised. Your driver will also be your guide, and commentary will be limited.
