Trails to explore

How about swapping your swimming costume for a pair of shorts and walking shoes? The Islands of Tahiti are a magnificent place to walk or hike. Especially the high volcanic islands. Short, well-signposted hiking trails like the Gardens of Vaipahi in Tahiti or bike trails in the Valley of Papenoo will give you some idea of the exotic plant life in The Islands of Tahiti. For some of the other, more challenging trails, you’ll need to go with a guide, like the one to the Vaipo waterfall in Nuku Hiva. But, boy is it beautiful! For completely different scenery, you can even go pot-holing in the lava tubes in Tahiti!
