Board a 4WD vehicle and witness breathtaking views of the east coast of Tahiti and the Papenoo Valley. Enjoy a short coastal drive and then a turn inland at the mouth of Papenoo River to begin your ascent up the largest valley on the island. The view of the surrounding mountainsides carved by centuries of erosion and covered with rich, thick, multi-green rainforest will awe you. The adventurous drive crosses rivers and includes photo stops at numerous waterfalls. You're welcome to take a swim in one of the natural pools of the river (if water levels permit) before stopping at a panoramic viewpoint for photos. You'll retrace your path down the valley and pause at a famous surfing and black-sand beach before returning to the pier.

Special Notes:

This tour travels unpaved roads and paths that may be bumpy and muddy. Not recommended for guests with neck or back conditions or pregnant women.

There are no changing facilities at the forest pool; passengers should wear their swimsuits and bring a towel.

As a disembarking tour, transfer to the airport is an additional cost and will have to be purchased separately.
