Scattered across the South Pacific, these volcanic islands are some of the most remote in the world. A well-planned tour of French Polynesia can include diving, whale watching, cruising or hopping on a sailboat.

Our specialists have carefully devised some itinerary ideas to give you a sense of what's possible, with each travel suggestion inspired by a route that we've particularly enjoyed. Some include time on a variety of islands, while others focus on expedition-style cruising to far-flung, real off-the-beaten-track corners of the archipelago.

South Pacific specialist Joshua reviews the Aranui, which, for him, is the best cruise vessel around French Polynesia. He explains what to expect from life on board, and why the out-of-the-way Marquesas and Tuamotu Islands are such intriguing places to explore.
