French Polynesia

The South Pacific island of Tahiti and its neighbouring islands in French Polynesia may be the closest you will ever come to paradise on Earth. The impossibly remote and endlessly alluring French Polynesian islands were one of the last places to be settled by humans. Today, the year-round trade winds and mild, consistent climate makes Tahiti a year-round sailing destination. The perfect trip for our daydreaming explorers - experience turquoise waters with live reefs filled with the most extraordinary underwater creatures and coral, nourish your soul with the song and dance of the ancestral traditions of the Tahitian people and of course re-charge your batteries while watching beautiful sunset on one of the most exclusive places on earth – island of Bora Bora.
