The most northerly archipelago, about 1500kms from Tahiti and clustered just below the equator, nature runs wild in the dramatic and mystical Marquesas Islands.
The largest island in the Marquesas, Nuku Hiva is known for its jagged mountain peaks, secluded, lush valleys, ancient religious sites, fiord-like bays and majestic waterfalls. The Marquesas have no sheltered reefs or lagoons to protect them from the pounding ocean - the coastline either ends in abrupt cliffs or is indented with bays. This is a land where packs of wild horses roam in complete freedom.
