Explore the island on a tour that incorporates Polynesian history and lifestyle, nature and tradition, as you discover the stunning scenery that our spectacular island has to offer. The drive south takes you along the delightful coast road surrounded by crystal clear lagoon waters and dramatic volcanic scenery covered in luscious vegetation, waterfalls, and geographical wonders. On the road side enjoy the sights of local fishermen selling their daily catch or tradesman selling their fruits and local produce.
The ancient religious site, Marae of Arahuruhu, set against a picturesque backdrop provides a real insight into ancient Polynesian culture, lifestyle and values.
