Itinerary in brief:
- 1 night Tahiti
- 2 nights Moorea
- 2 nights Raiatea
- 3 nights Bora Bora
Day 1: Arrive at Papeete International Airport, Tahiti
On arrival you will be met at the airport and greeted with a flower, before being transferred your pension where you'll stay for 1 night in Tahiti. Your pension is located on the mountainside in a tropical garden, just a short walk from the island's most beautiful beach.
Day 2: Tahiti to Moorea
Today you will be collected from your pension and taken to the airport, from where you'll take a 15 minute flight to neighbouring Moorea.
On arrival you'll be met and driven to the north west coast of the island where you will check in for the next 2 nights.
Day 3: Day at leisure
Located 300m from a small village and along the road leading up to the beach with its turquoise lagoon, these self-catering holiday homes are the perfect place to kick back! The houses are cosy, in excellent condition and fully equipped (BBQ included) with an ensuite bedroom, kitchen/lounge and terrace with unobstructed views.
Spend your leisurely days in Moorea cycling the island, swimming or snorkelling in the lagoon, or enjoying a 4WD tour to the lookout points.
Day 4: Moorea to Raiatea
After breakfast you'll be transferred to the airport for your 40 minute flight to Raiatea, the next stop on the Society Island Explorer.
On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel located on the west coast of the island for the next 2 nights.
This charming, colonial-style hotel enjoys a beautiful garden and has lagoon access, meaning it's well situated to explore Raiatea or Ta'haa. There is no direct beach but you can snorkel in the lagoon, access a nearby motu or canoe to the closest white sandy beach – approx. 10 minutes away.
Day 5: Day at leisure
In the valley of Faaroa on the east of the island is a botanical getaway – trees, flowers and shrubs lining the river that overlooks the Bay of Faaroa.
Take a cruise or paddleboard down the river; drive the road that twists around Mount Oropiro with amazing views of the lush island; take a lagoon tour or go hiking.
Nearby Ta'haa shares the same lagoon – you can swim at private motu (small islet) or learn more about the nearby pearl farms.
Day 6: Raiatea to Bora Bora
You'll be collected (time dependant on flight time) and transferred to the airport for an onward flight to the final, and perhaps most famous, island, Bora Bora.
Arriving around 20 minutes after take-off, you’ll be met upon landing and transferred to your hotel, the Hotel Maitai Polynesia where you’ll be staying for 3 nights in an overwater bungalow.
Located close to Bora Bora’s best beach Matira, this 3* hotel offers great value for money and affordable overwater accommodation in his sought after location.
Days 7 & 8: Days at leisure
Spend the day exploring this volcanic island and it's amazing lagoon! The clear turquoise water is perfect for snorkelling and provides exceptional diving and the opportunity to see Manta Rays and Sharks in their natural environment.
You can explore the lagoon by yacht, canoe or glass bottomed boat. Take a picnic lunch on a private motu (sand islet), or take a 4WD safari around the island. Probably one of the most romantic places on earth, your time in Bora Bora will certainly be memorable!
Day 9: Return to Tahiti
On your final day you'll be transferred to the airport where you'll check in for the 50 minute flight back to the main island of Tahiti.
