After pickup from your Bora Bora hotel or Vaitape Pier at your chosen departure time, board the 4WD vehicle, perfect for scaling any mountain or rough track on the volcanic island. The truck has a shaded roof and open sides for optimal viewing throughout your tour.

Your expert guide circles the entire island—an approximate 20-mile (32-km) route around Bora Bora. Stop at a lookout point at East Matira for exceptional views of the sparkling lagoon bordered by lush green mountainsides. Follow up with more vistas from the Faanui Canon lookout and find evidence left behind by US troops after WWII.

When the 4x4 truck reaches the Faanui Valley, watch artisans demonstrate how to create tie-dye sarongs and make coconut oil, and sample tropical fruits at a small plantation. Your last stop is the Amanahune Bay lookout, which features more stunning views along with rock formations that were once inside the volcanic caldera of Bora Bora. 

If you selected the sunset tour, sip a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and listen to live local music while watching the sun slip past the horizon.

Your circle-island 4WD tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

  • "We would highly recommend this tour and operator, and far more cost effective than equivalent trips organised via the cruise line." See review

Great tour, beautiful views, interesting history

Alex was an amazing tour guide and took us to see a side of Bora Bora that we did not know very much about. The scenic views were gorgeous, the history was interesting and the glimpse into the artists methods for dyeing the beautiful sarongs/pareo was fascinating. 10/10 great tour and highly recommended.

This tour was great the guide was very informative about the island. Gave us knowledge about places we have drove by but never knew anything about. He took some good pictures of the wife and myself with bora bora sunset in the back drop. Would tell everyone a must trip to take while in bora bora. The cocktails at the end was great wish that I would have gotten the name of the drink very smooth.
