Walk on the Wild Side
7 day journey - Nuku Hiva - Hiva Oa

Walk on the Wild Side

The landscape of the Marquesas alternates between waterfalls, desert plateaus and black-sand bays. The waterfalls are so high that most of the falling water evaporates as it descends. To explore this rugged and primitive terrain is to discover a land that only small numbers of privileged people ever have the opportunity to visit. The isolation of these islands has created an immense pride among the Marquesans and a fascinating culture. Many traditional Polynesian art forms originated here. The locals have safeguarded the ancient techniques of tattoo artistry, sculpture and woodcarving. Every four years, Nuku Hiva hosts the Marquesas Arts Festival, a celebration of the renowned artistic talent and deeply rooted traditions of these proud people. The islands are also home to many archaeological sites including stone temples, large tiki statues and ancient petroglyphs.

Why Turquoise loves...
“What I love about The Islands of Tahiti, is there is more than just stunning lagoons and overwater bungalows. There's a wild side you’ll want to explore. Take a 4x4 safari through lush rainforests, visit nearby waterfalls or take a guided hike around Bora Bora's Mount Otemanu. If you've only been to Tahiti, Mo’orea or Bora Bora, you're just getting started. To really head off the beaten track, hop to the more remote islands that ooze Polynesian culture.” Lara Cowtan, Tahiti travel specialist
