Raiatea, known as the sacred island was the center of royalty, religion, culture and history. It is also a lush tropical garden with verdant mountains, waterfalls and rivers. This tour features a four-wheel-drive safari ride to the interior of the island, among green tropical vegetation of bamboo forests, chestnut, mango and guava trees; you will have the chance to overlook a small vanilla plantation. The final stop is at the Marae Taputapuatea, the sacred site from where the ancient Polynesians departed to discover the other islands that form the Polynesian Triangle-Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island.
