Known as the sacred island, Raiatea was the center of royalty, religion, culture and history and this tour allows you to explore Raiatea's marvelous interior from the more intimate perspective of an 8-seater 4-wheel-drive vehicle.


Boarding your 4WD at the pier, you and your fellow guests will head off to the island's interior for a close-up look at this tropical paradise that features verdant mountains and lush foliage. As you navigate the inland roads, you'll find yourself traveling amongst lush vegetation that includes bamboo forests, chestnut trees, mango trees and guava trees.


Along with tourism, the island relies on cottage industries and you will have the chance to visit one of them with a brief stop at a small vanilla field. From there, it's on to Raiatea's most famous landmark, Marae Taputapuatea. It was from this sacred site that the ancient Polynesians set-off to discover the other islands which now form the famous Polynesian Triangle: Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island. Following your stop here, you will drive back to the pier.
