Depart home for your flight via Vancouver or Los Angeles to Papeete, the main island in Tahiti.
Upon arrival into Papeete’s International airport, you will be met and transferred to the domestic section for your onward connection to Bora Bora.
There is much to discover during your time in Bora Bora, an idyliic South Pacific island.
A peaceful haven sitting directly over the lagoon, the overwater bungalow concept is one of ‘must do’ elements of Bora Bora and The Islands of Tahiti. From rooms, suites in floating villas, lose yourself in the colours of the lagoon framed by unforgettable sunsets. Designed and built in traditional Tahitian style, these bungalows offer direct access to the lagoon and are the perfect relaxing getaway.
Bora Bora’s lagoon is an underwater world that hosts manta rays, sharks and gentle Napoleon wrasses, which will welcome you while scuba diving, helmet diving or viewing from a glass-bottom boat. There are many opportunities to explore the lagoon, the motu and the ocean. You can circle the island by water or jump on jetskis or waterskis and scoot along the smooth lagoon for an exhilarating ride.
Take sail in a catamaran for a sunset cruise accompanied by local musicians and dancers or climb onboard a helicopter for a breathtaking ride high above this neon-colored world. Discover the dozens of shopping areas for art, handicrafts, pearls, and fragrant Tahitian oils and visit the artisan galleries and pick up your own Bora Bora original.
Spend the afternoon enjoying famous Matira Beach or the secluded beaches on one of the many islets surrounding Bora Bora. There will be time to snorkel in the clear waters around the resorts, hire a dive master to learn to dive or explore the sunken vessels and coral walls. A sail on a catamaran or deep sea marlin fishing are other options.
A short flight take you to brings you to Raiatea, an incredible natural source of interest for scientists and nature lovers due to its rare flora and fauna species. Mount Temehani shelters the tiare ‘apetahi, a flower found nowhere else in the world. It has become the symbol for Raiatea. This half-circle white and delicate flower only blooms at dawn.
Raiatea also shelters the only navigable river in French Polynesia. Legend says that the river would have been the departure point of all Polynesian migrations to Hawaii and New Zealand.
From Raiatea, a short ferry ride will take you to the island of Taha’a. Time seems to have stopped in Taha’a, a secretive and secluded island where, while strolling along paths across the island, you will discover unspoiled vegetation.
Discovering the secrets of Tahitian vanilla in its natural environment will make you fall in love with Taha’a even more. Visitors enjoy sampling vanilla tahitensis, a unique and precious vanilla that tastes like nothing that you would have experienced before. A certain artistic know-how is required to grow this exquisite spice. It’s a skill that’s acquired over time and with great experience. Just like patient alchemists, specialists pamper their Tahitian vanilla for many months before the miracle begins to happen.
Feel like Robinson Crusoe, lying on the fine sand dotted with beautiful palm trees, facing crystal clear water on the motu of Taha’a. The scenery is perfect in and out of the water. Snorkelers will find many coral heads in this rich underwater world.
Depart Taha’a and say farewell to the Islands Tahiti with a transfer back to the airport. You will be transferred to the airport in Raiatea for your short flight to Papeete. Return flight home via Vancouver or Los Angeles.
