Discover the natural wonders of Tahiti on this inner-island safari tour by 4WD vehicle. After your guide picks you up from your hotel in downtown Papeete or at the wharf, hop into the Jeep for a thrilling ride — traversing rough roads best accessed by a 4x4 vehicle.

Make your first stop at Mount Marau, a former 19th-century French fortress. Treat yourself to a gorgeous vista of the lush, rainforest-clad Punaruu Valley and snap photos of the island's highest peaks: Orohena, Aorai, Tetufera and Teamaa.

Your tour continues to the Arahoho Blowhole, an unmarked roadside attraction created over eons by liquid lava, when battering surf undercut the basalt shoreline and eroded a tunnel-like passageway. When large waves crash into the rocks, watch in awe as a geyser-like plume of seawater shoots into the air and sprays onlookers. 

Check out the local surfers and the black-sand beach before re-boarding the Jeep. You’ll enter to the Faaurumai Valley near Tahiti’s north coast to visit the three waterfalls of the Cascades of Faarumai — nestled in nearly impenetrable rainforest of hutu and mape trees. It’s an easy 5-minute walk to Vaimahutu Falls, which plunges 100 feet (30 meters) into a crystal-clear pool below. 

Follow your guide along a 20-minute rainforest walk to reach the other two cascades, Haamaremare Iti and Haamaremare Rahi, and spend time at the final waterfall with a refreshing swim if you’d like. Back in your 4WD vehicle, make the return trip to Papeete where your full-day tour ends.

Very well organized 8h trip up to the heart of the Tahiti Nui volcano. Nice views of waterfalls and explanation of local ecosystem by a very knowledgeable local tour guide/driver. Good 4WD car well suited for narrow and very steep dirt tracks up and down with a very safety conscious tour guide driver.

Glorious waterfalls!

We were glad we chose an interior island tour and felt that we were able to see much more than people on busses would see. Riding through the jungle and seeing the numerous waterfalls - one after another after another - was great. It actually rained the day we were on tour which we thought made it even more exciting! Lunch was good but providing approximate costs of menu selections in advance would have been appreciated so we would have been financially prepared.

Tahiti island culterra

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.

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.

This trip is 100% worth while and should be amongst the top 3 in terms of your visit to Tahiti- yes it is a long day, the road is bumpy and you need to take extra water but the views are spectacular- our guide also explained the flowers and plants around and was incredibly skilled at driving the very difficult road but making sure everyone got photos they wanted and points of interest were explained!

Great views with a good driver but light on information

We enjoyed our Safari. The views are quite stunning and the driver handled the roads flawlessly. The trip is not for the faint at heart. There were 20° grades all right on the mountain edge. We were disappointed though that the driver did not take much time to share much information with us about the sites we were seeing, the history of the island, or its people. We were glad we did the trip but it would have been much better had the driver also been a guide.
