Overview

Hike through the rainforest and see the peaks of Moorea with a professional local guide. Start at the spectacular Belvedere lookout and follow the Three Coconuts Trail through lush foliage to a pass with spectacular views over the island.

Know More about this tour

After pickup at your Moorea hotel, a guide drives your group up steep winding roads to the Belvedere lookout where your 4-mile (7-km) hike begins. Marvel at the panoramic views of the Opunohu Valley from this breathtaking lookout before hitting the trail.

Follow your guide along a path that leads you through forests filled with ferns and towering Tahitian Chestnut trees, before climbing steadily to a pass. Along the way, your guide points out plants that Polynesians traditionally use for fishing, cooking, and making tapa cloth. You also learn to identify a range of bird calls and where to look for bird nests.

When you reach the foot of Mt Moua Roa, take in the sight of the ancient volcano's caldera and gaze at the distant peaks of Mt Rotui, Mt Tohiea and Mt Moua Puta. Rising dramatically from the waters of Cook's Bay, the steep jagged peaks of Mt Mouaputa are a photographer's dream. According to local legends, the hole in the middle of its peak was the result of a spear hurled by a powerful deity.

Once you have had some time to admire the stunning views and take photos, return along the same trail, stopping for a refreshing dip at a waterfall. After about three hours of walking at a relaxed pace, rejoin your vehicle for the ride back to your hotel, where your 4-hour tour ends.

  • The hike is definitely not too hard for someone who is in good physical health and the views on the top are spectacular. The guide Michel is very knowledgeable and gave us much information about the vegetation and the area and it is indeed beautiful. My only complaint was the website is a bit deceptive claiming there is a waterfall when in fact there is none but only a tiny creek with barely a trickle of water flowing down barely enough to wet your toes.

  • This was a great hike which took us up a mountain to 1000m. Our guide was great but would have liked a little more information while taking the height. Unfortunately we were not able to take a dip in a waterfall due to a rainstorm the day we had our hike. It was definitely more challenging then what the description suggested. For my husband, my sister and I we had no problem but our dad who is 74 had a little more difficulty with the steep terrain near the top of the mountain. However, the views from the top were spectacular. It was a great way to spend the morning and get in a little exercise.

  • We had a great guide and really enjoyed walking through the jungle and streams and great lookouts. Unlless it's been really dry don't take nice shoes because they will get dirty.

  • An awesome hike, with a guide who is very passionate and knowledgable about his surroundings. The hike was well paced, and had plenty of rest breaks, as needed. The view points of the entire Moorea caldera are quite spectacular. For those who are more adventurous there is an even better view point overlooking a 250-300 ft cliff. Overall an excellent hike.

  • The hike was worth the price of admission. Gave my wife and I an incredible workout and the sights at some of the stops along the way were incredible.

  • Fantastic tour. A great workout in the mountains. Our guide maintained a steady but doable hiking pace and we took several breaks to catch our breaths and take in the scenery. When we reached the top we enjoyed sweet grapefruit seriously amazing- I hate grapefruit but I loved this our guide had packed to share. Wonderful way to spent the morning.
