  • I did this hike twice while we were docked in Ulturoa. The first time was fast for exercise (hiked up and ran down), and the second was with my family. A great free activity on Raietaia. It's about 3K...  more »
  • An hour of sporty enough market (important drop), you will also come across many Polynesians who up and down mount Tapioi running... A nice ballad where you'll come across some local residents but also a lot of cows! The effort of the climb is worth the trip with a breathtaking view the arriving which erases all the difficulties of the climb! My advice: access is via a private property where there is limited access to see forbidden the weekend! Also, opt for an early start to avoid the blazing sun during the ascent (always in the Sun...)

  • After a good hour's walk which climbs well! Bring you good shoes. The reward arriving upstairs is without equal. Do not miss.
