Have you planned a 7 day holiday and are wondering where to go in Tahiti? 118 islands don’t make it easy but that’s what Tahiti is all about: diversity! It also depends on what you like to do so we’ve suggested 3 different itineraries, the following one is based on nature. Every itinerary starts and finishes on the main island, Tahiti, as your flight will arrive late in the evening (coming from Australia or New Zealand) and you'll usually need to spend your first night here.


If you want to stay away from the many tourists who frequent the islands and want to be immersed in the Polynesian ambiance and Mana (spirit), this is the perfect trip for you: 

  • Day 1: Tahiti
  • Day 2-4: Rangiroa
  • Day 4-6: Huahine
  • Day 6: Tahiti

DAY 1: TAHITI

You'll arrive fairly late in Tahiti and will spend the first night on the main island.
