Cruise on a catamaran with or without a skipper

Experience a mountain safari by 4-wheel drive

Cross Tahiti in a 4WD via the Papenoo valley, rich in archaeological sites and spectacular views of impressive waterfalls.


Try horse riding

Trot along a mountain trail or gallop in the sandy shallows of the lagoon shore on a Marquesan pony, the gentlest horse breed in the world, renowned for their calm temperament.


Kayak in the lagoon

Kayaking is one of the most tranquil ways to go exploring. Hover above coral teeming with colourful schools of fish - who needs a snorkel! What better way to explore than a seated on a sea-kayak as the warm waters of the lagoon caress you.


Ride in an outrigger canoe

It is said that the great Polynesian migration was made in giant canoes, Take the opportunity to try it yourself and you will begin to understand what remarkable navigators the Polynesian people are.
