Off the Beaten Track: Bora Bora by 4-Wheel-Drive
This four-wheel-drive excursion takes you to places accessible only to rugged off-road vehicles. Drive through the small town of Vaitape to make your first ascent up Pahonu Hill. Great views of Bora Bora’s natural harbor and Matira Beach await you. Continue with more off-road adventure and visit the seven-inch cannons still in their original World War II locations. Travel along the northern shore of Bora Bora into the lush valley of Faanui. Perhaps the highlight of the trip is the view of Faanui Bay from a traditional plantation high up in the mountains. On your return to the main road, pass by Matira Beach and continue with a stop at The Farm, offering restrooms and refreshments. Before you leave this facility, you’ll learn about pearl farming through interpretive signs. With your guide at the wheel, you’ll enjoy some great sightseeing and learn much about the island’s history and people.
This excursion involves rough off-road driving with steep ascents and descents. This tour is not suitable for pregnant women or guests with bad backs or neck problems or persons who suffer from motion sickness or vertigo. Wear comfortable walking shoes. The vehicles accommodate eight guests each.
