4WD Safari in the Papenoo valley
$40.60 – $599.72
Go on an adventure and follow the “Traversière” to the center of Tahiti.
The “Traversière” is the only dirt road that connects the East coast to the West coast, through the lush mountains. The excursion begins in the Papenoo valley, whose history is linked to the mutineers of the Bounty . Ride up the valley, crossing several times the river and following natural pools along the way.
Several stops will be made to allow you to take photos or dip in the fresh waters of the many waterfalls. Your experienced guide will point out to the landmarks of the valley and tell you about their history and legends. You will be able to discover, among others, the waterfalls of Topatari, Vaiharuru and Puraha, the Ponaroa power station and the crater of Tahiti. There, in the heart of the jungle you’ll have a short lunch break at the restaurant the Relais of the Maroto.
You’ll continue your adventure towards the basalt tunnels, perched 800m above sea level and will then head down to the Vaihiria lake. It is a breathtaking landscape in the middle of the ever so green vegetation, overlooking the lagoon and the reef further down.
