Overview

Embark on an eco-friendly expedition in  Tahiti. Admire, discover and help us protect the Polynesian biodiversity!

We, islanders, live so close to nature and largely depend on it. And any change in this natural balance can be noticed way quicker than anywhere else. Having said that, sustainability in French Polynesia is not really an option. It is a way of life we have to follow to preserve our environment and our identity, based on our Polynesian ancestors’ practices.

On this expedition, you will meet the most passionate and impact-driven people of our islands. This is your opportunity to fully immerse yourselves in our environment and have the best positive impact on it.

Explore, observe and understand better the many and varied ecosystems of French Polynesia. From the marine to the terrestrial ecosystems, you will be directly acting towards the preservation of what makes our islands so unique: their biodiversity.

By choosing this expedition, you will participate in our coral reef restoration project and have a direct impact on our main source of oxygen, food and work. Plus, when booking this expedition, 3% of Nani’s benefits are directly donated to the FAPE (Federation of Environmental Organisations). This federation gathers all the local NGOs working towards the perservation of the environment.

Join us on this eco-friendly expedition in Tahiti and be part of the solution for a sustainable future.

Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1 - The valley.

Start your expedition by immersing yourself into our lush valley. Discover our endemic species and explore the biggest botanical garden of our island.
As a sustainable tour operator, we are the only ones allowed to visit the valley of Peva and limited to one visit per month to preserve the natural behaviours of the ecosystems.

Day 2 - The pineapple fields.

Hop on the ferry and make your way to Tahiti's island sister, Mo'orea. Grab a bike (an e-bike, we promise...) and follow us around the pineapple fields of the island. Learn more about our local resources and agriculture, explore our highest mountains and discover the biodiversity of our lands.

Day 3 - The marine life.

You've largely explored the lands, it's about time you take a real dip into our blue lagoons! Get ready to meet, admire and understand the animals of our oceans... Indeed, we're taking you on an excursion with very special guests: sharks and stingrays! Help our scientists monitoring marine populations and recording their behaviours.

Day 4 - The coral reefs.

Today is another day spent in the water. But not like any other travellers, today, you will help on a project very close to our hearts: coral reef restoration. Follow your guide and do your part in saving the reefs: learn more about the importance of reefs, join a coral cutting workshop and plant your very own coral to rebuild a healthy reef.

Day 5 - The mountains.

After two days in the water, we're going high up in the mountains (no panic, the 4x4 is taking you up there!). Explore a very sacred valley and sleep in a traditional village. There, you will meet and live at the pace of a very restricted local NGO and community only Nani Travelers get to spend so much time with, working to protect our traditions and culture. Hike up to waterfalls, visit ancestral cult places, and ask questions away about our culture and History !

Day 6 - More mountains !

You never really know what will be happening up there in the mountains. The community could be cooking, weaving, harvesting. Follow your intuition and explore the valley and our biodiversity with them. This is your chance to learn a lot about our culture and ecosystems.

Day 7 - The ocean.

Back at the sea ! Today, we're heading to Teahupoo, where the mythic tahitian waves hide.
Hop on a boat, we're going on an adventure ! Explore the wildest and most remote part of our island, where the ocean rules.
You'll discover the "rahui", a marine protected area organised and preserved by the local community and learn about its important role in our ecosystem.
Food will be cooked fresh from the boat deck and served by the sea: lunch with a view at its best !

Day 8 - The wild road trip.

For the final day together, we're going on a road trip ! Follow us along the coast and discover some of our favourite spots around. Have a final look at our biodiversity and let you guide through gardens, waterfalls, beaches... before your last goodbye to the natural beauty our island.
