Hiking, Horses & 4WD Tours
The interior of both islands is rugged, and a variety of options are available for touring. These treks range from gentle eco-walks to 4WD safari trips in Range Rovers and jeeps. Operators of the latter take visitors through lush tropical jungle, up onto high ridges, and through vanilla and pineapple farms. Horseback trail rides on the slopes of Raiatea's Mt. Tamahani are also popular.
