Society Islands (Bora Bora, Huahine)
Bora Bora is the epitome of a South Seas dream. The ring of islands around the green mountain peak and the radiant lagoons offer an indescribable sight which you can enjoy from the most spectacular perspective during a helicopter flight over the island paradise*. Alternatively, a trip in a glass-bottom boat* grants you wonderful insights into the colourful diversity of life on the edge of the reef. Atmospheric South Seas magic also awaits you on the island of Huahine, which actually consists of two islands. According to legend, the god Hiro created the narrow waterway between them with a boat in the distant past. Learn more about the fascinating myths of the island when you discover Huahine with an off-road vehicle*. Explore the maraes, stone platforms on which gods and ancestors were worshipped

One of the most frequently photographed sights in the South Seas is the heart-shaped island of Moorea, which you will immediately fall in love with. In the course of an off-road vehicle tour* through tropical vegetation and past pineapple plantations you will reach Magic Mountain, which offers you a beautiful panoramic view across the island. A magical sight that, just like all the other impressions gained during your dream expedition, you will remember forever.
