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. Refresh yourself at a waterfall and earn about French Polynesia's geology, flora and fauna on this moderately paced, 4-mile (7-km) trek in the rainforest.

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.

    Great hike! Such beautiful views and a wonderful guide Heinrich! He was so detailed and showed us everything! Loved having a small group. Although this hike is NO JOKE. Leaves, tree trunks and rocks are slippery. Wear good hiking shoes! When you get close to the top you need to use ropes to get up! Altogether 5 mile hike but worth every minute

    Excellent hike, beautiful views, fantastic guide who provided a lot of history about French Polynesia. Recommend for highly active clients.

    Pick up at the hotel made it convenient. Our guide was very knowledgeable about flora and fauna of the island. The views were spectacular and colorful fallen flowers covered the tropical floor. The hike was on the high end of moderate at times and would recommend walking sticks for hikers over 55. We hiked in May and the path for the most part was dry and we had good traction.

    Great strenuous hike. My husband and I are moderately active, so this hike was nice and challenging. Our tour guide Enriq was on time for pickup, and very friendly and informative. He pointed out different plants and trees, and informed us about important issues with the forest. He also taught us about Tahitian culture and the impact of the French influence. We love hearing about daily life from the locals, so it was great to hear him speak on the culture. My husband loves plants so he was able to ask about different species of plants, and Enriq was very knowledgeable on the scientific names. As mentioned earlier, the hike itself was challenging for us. Especially with our camera gear and GoPro. I didn’t really get to capture as much because I focused on making sure I wouldn’t slip. We also wanted to keep pace to ensure that we departed on time. The view points that Enriq took us to were beautiful and definitely rewarding. He even offered to take pictures of us. Overall, a great experience! Important tips: 1. Make sure that you’re in your hotel lobby in time for pick up. They have a strict 15 minute courtesy for pick up. There was supposed to be another couple on the hike, but no word from them within 15 minutes so we had to leave to start the tour. 2. Bring sunblock, bug spray, and good shoes with grip. The ground on the hike can be a bit wet. There are also lots of rocks and tree roots to step on. 3. For two people, I suggest bringing 2 water bottles per person or a big water bottle per person. You sweat A LOT. Lol

    An excellent hike in a beautiful setting. The tour itself would be rated at 5 stars if not for the following. Immediately upon pick-up at the hotel, the guide attempted to change the tour from the trail hike to an easier walk through vanilla fields. The actual phrase used by the guide was "The hike is too difficult for madame" without any attempt to ascertain our fitness. We tried to play it off by making a joke out of it, but for some reason we had to be insistent in receiving the tour that we booked. We both run marathons and there was absolutely no problem in completing the ascent. Later the guide actually expressed surprise at the successful climb. I don't know if this is a cultural thing among the French ex-pats, but making a comment about a female without cause is inappropriate and uncalled for. To make two derogatory comments when we've hired you to perform a service is unconscionable. While on the trail, the guide was helpful and knowledgeable...we would recommend this hike to others on that basis.

    The hiking pace of the guide was way too fast to enjoy the hike, especially for a hike that had lots of roots, trees, mud, and rocks in the trail. The hike itself though was beautiful. Make sure to bring solid hiking boots and lots of water.

    Very helpful and friendly guide. It was raining on our hike, so it was very slippery. The hike we took had some very steep segments, and both my wife and I are very physically fit. So I would recommend that elderly people think twice before taking this hike. However, it was nice to see the ancient Polynesian Temples. The views and the hike through the jungle were nice.

    I booked this tour a couple of days ago. I received a message that it was paid for and confirmed. Today, I received an email saying that they can't do it tomorrow, would next week be okay? There is no way that I can find to contact Trip Advisor about it. I am afraid that I have now waited too late to be able to schedule anyone to take us on this hike. Very terrible service from this outfit and not very happy with Trip Advisor either. I will think twice about booking through them again.

    Good hike, nice guide, no complaints, exquisite views. I would do it again. Also easy pickup, right at my Airbnb.

    The hike was great and we learned a lot about the different plant species of Moorea. The views were absolutely amazing too! The hike was pretty moderate, enough to break a sweat but not too bad. Would definitely recommend!
