French Polynesia tours
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.
