Know More about this tour

Discover the interior of the island of Tahiti by 4 wheel drive vehicle. The tour will take you to Mount Marau. You'll be taken to an altitude of 3600 feet, stop for a bird's eye view of Punaruu Valley, once a fortress built by the French during the Tahitian uprising of 1844 to 1846. The site is now used as a TV relay station.

At 4320 feet, there is a magnificent panorama of the island's highest peaks: Orohena, Aorai, Tetufera and Teamaa.

Tour continues to the Tiarei Arahoho Blow Hole, Tahiti's biggest roadside attraction. It's unmarked and located at the base of a steep cliff on a narrow shoulder on the mountain side of the road. Over countless years, battering surf has undercut the basalt shoreline and eroded a passage to the surface beneath the road. When waves crash against the rocks, the result is a geyser-like plume of sea water that showers on lookers.

You'll enter to the Fa'aurumai Valley to visit the three waterfalls. The rainforest on both sides of this small valley is thick, nearly impenetrable and filled with "hutu" and "mape" trees (chestnut trees, only found in the Society Islands). If you look carefully, you'll notice star fruit, guava and "mape" along the trail. From the parking lot, it's several hundred yards to Vaimahutu, the first fall, which cascades 100 feet to the earth and empties into a pool. Continue the rainforst walk and within 20-minutes will reach the other two falls : Haamaremare Iti and Haamaremare Rahi.

    It was very interesting to drive inside Tahiti island cultera. The driver was very experienced and very patient to drive stip, narrow, one-way path. Beautiful place to see with a lot of waterfalls, lakes and extremely stip peaks all around. We were lucky to get under the rain and to see “virgin hair” - numerous thin waterfalls running down the hills. Well organized lunch in the mountain restaurant. Highly recommend to those who would like to get whole day escape from hot beach.

    Awesome scenery, great route and a wonderful place for lunch high on the mountain summarizes a fantastic day on Tahiti.

    The Jeep ride and the views were fantastic. The language barrier was a challenge, bit we had some other guests on the tour who could translate for us.

    Wonderful trip. I enjoyed everything including making new friends. I loved the jeep ride and the guide was super friendly and helpful.

  • 26-Jul-2019

    Views were great but the guide was sub-par. There was very little to no narration from our guide. There were other groups from this same tour operator on the same safari who made several stops and clearly their guide was narrating details to them. It was a disappointment.

    Exhilarating day exploring the crater of the extinct Tahiti Nui volcano. Had everything from pouring rain to bright sun. So many waterfalls to see as we climbed up and up the river valley. Stunning views. Great conversation with our truck-mates from Oklahoma,.Chamonix and Paris. Our driver Marco was always eager to answer our questions. What a memorable trip!

    The trip mediocre. No water was provided on an 8 hr trip. Lunch wasn't included and the restaurant didn't take credit cards which we did not know up front. The driver basically put everyone in the back of a truck. Drove to a couple of places with no dialogue on travel.. The driver was friendly and informative when he wasn't driving. The scenery was nice.

  • 03-Apr-2018

    The tour was nice but way too long. Should have booked the half-day tour.

  • 01-Apr-2018

    The view of the island is beautifull and interesting. However, we never really learned much else regarding information and I was slightly disappointed in the guide.

  • 11-Mar-2018

    Wow what a day Augustine our driver was terrific. It was a great trip seeing the jungle and many beautiful waterfalls and luckily an amazing rainbow. It was terrific to c such a different aspect after seeing so many wonderful fish and beaches. This trip is not for the fainthearted as the road is a real adventure. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
