Fautaua Valley Trail {French Polynesia}

Of all the beautiful hikes I have taken, one of the most amazing of them all was hiking in Tahiti on the Fautaua Valley Trail. This trail took us through the lush greens and ended at the top of a waterfall where a series of small pools cascaded down into the waterfall. Near the top of the trail the incline was so steep that someone had set up a rope to hold to so people could maneuver down safely to the top of the waterfall, but the rest of the hike is very moderate. The waterfall is 980 feet to the ground and stunning to behold. This hike is absolutely one of the best things to see in Tahiti and I can’t recommend it enough.

{Know if you go :: In order to hike this trail you will need to get a permit. Permits are inexpensive and can be purchased at a couple places in the city. Or if you go with a tour, they will handle the permits so you don’t have to.}
