Activity description

Enjoy passion fruit straight off the plant and cool off in front of wild waterfalls on this quad tour of Vaihiria Lake.

Rip up the guide book and embrace Tahiti’s adventurous spirit on this quad bike tour to Vaihiria Lake. An excursion where getting there is half the fun, travel along rugged dirt tracks into the unknown, following the heady scent of hibiscus to your destination at the heart of the Polynesian island.

This activity is run & operated from Taravao on the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Travelling through the Papearii and Papeeno Valleys, the tour reaches Vaihria Lake – the island's largest, using wild yet well-maintained dirt tracks.

Meet your guide at the activity base for this half-day quad biking excursion to Vaihiria Lake. An adventure that explores the lesser known south side of the island, leave the pristine beaches in search of local legend and natural legacy on this 4x4 adventure.

After a short safety briefing, leave the modern tarmac and pick up rugged dirt tracks that lead into the dense jungle of the volcanic interior. Riding to the heart of the island, test your technique and handling as you ride across single track paths deep in the mountains – traversing streams and cooling off in wild waterfalls along the way.

During the course of the trip, your guide will teach you more about the area’s historical significance and unique biodiversity – allowing you to taste wild raspberries, guava and passion fruit, too. Reaching the mystical green waters of Lake Vaihiria, soak up the atmosphere and explore on foot – returning to the activity base at a casual pace.

Using the quads to get up the mountain was so much fun! Can’t be afraid to get some dirt on you!

The quad ride was a great time. Robert made the day full of fun and information. When we passed another tour riding in the back of a truck bouncing around, I was really happy that we chose this. If we return to Tahiti, I would definitely book this again.

Activité vraiment géniale. L'incursion dans cette vallée tahitienne et la découverte des lacs (artificiels et naturels) est incontournable sur Tahiti. De plus, VAIHIRIA QUAD TAHITI propose comme guide Robert, polynésien d'origine qui apporte beaucoup d'informations sur la flore notamment et sur les légendes tahitiennes. Il est d'une grande gentillesse.
