    Melanesian Encounter

    Lifou, Nueva Caledonia

    Duración 2 hs.

    Visit the Melanesian village of Hnathalo, where ancient customs are still practiced religiously and traditional island values are held in high esteem. Hnathalo is also the name of the tribe living there. Following a welcoming coconut drink, you will walk among the village's thatched huts, hand-carved totems and open expanses shaded by swaying palms and towering Royal Poinciana trees. It will be like traveling back in time, as little has changed over the years because traditional Melanesian ways are still fervently practiced in Hnathalo. That is especially true in the preparation of dishes such as bougna, a concoction that you will sample after seeing how it's cooked over red-hot stones in a cleverly designed ground oven. You will also be invited to enter the circular Chief's Hut, one of the largest of its kind in New Caledonia, and view a church that French Catholic missionaries constructed in 1883. It is decorated with period furnishings that enhance the authenticity.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Learn about the traditional Melanesian way of life in the rural village Hnathalo.
    • Sample the Melanesian dish bougna, which is cooked in banana leaves in an earthen oven.
    • See the interior of the revered Chief’s Hut and a missionary-built, 19th-century church.

    Cliffs of Jokin

    Lifou, Nueva Caledonia

    Duración 2 hs.

    Gain an understanding of life on Lifou by visiting a prosperous vanilla plantation and the village of Jokin, which overlooks one of the island's most gorgeous seascapes. Although Lifou's terrain is rugged, especially along the coast, it is ideal for growing vanilla beans, as you will see firsthand on the plantation. The majority of the vanilla grown on the island is exported to flavor everything from ice cream to perfume, but a small quantity is always reserved for use by the islanders. After a tour of the wonderfully aromatic plantation, you will have the chance to sample a cup of vanilla-enhanced coffee. In the northernmost village of Jokin, you will enjoy free time to wander around and mingle with the residents, who will eagerly share the details of daily life in their small, rather remote village. Jokin perches high atop a fossilized coral cliff overlooking one of the island's most magnificent bays, and the views are breathtaking.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a vanilla plantation to see how this aromatic flavoring is derived from orchids.
    • Sample a cup of vanilla-enhanced coffee and discover other uses of versatile vanilla.
    • Mingle with the villagers in remote Jokin and admire the ocean views from its coral cliffs.

    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Tropical Forest Walk & Secret Grotto

    Lifou, Nueva Caledonia

    Duración 2 hs.

    Meander through a tropical forest and explore a grotto, where you will discover how the local Melanesians have gained great benefits from the natural environment. They have lived off the land for centuries, in particular, by hunting and using native flora for medicinal purposes. New Caledonia boasts more than 2,400 species of indigenous plants, so the islanders have always had a vast array of flora at their disposal. Some plants are used to treat ailments while others contain toxins that are sometimes added to rivers to temporarily paralyze fish so they can easily be caught. This is the sort of engaging information that the guide will impart during the forest walk. Later, you will explore a grotto by torchlight, which will eerily illuminate the interior, so you can see the odd shapes of the stalagmites and stalactites. You will also learn how the Melanesians use traditional methods to gather coconut crabs, trap birds and hunt wild pigs.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Take a leisurely walk through a forest with a naturalist guide that will describe the flora.
    • Hear how the Melanesians use plants for medicinal purposes and hunt in the forest.
    • Explore a grotto by torchlight, which will make the interior look all the more dramatic.

    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Lifou, Nueva Caledonia

    Duración 3 hs.

    Explore the natural side of Lifou on an inspiring driving tour along its sparsely inhabited northern shore, followed by a relaxing stop at a pristine beach that rims a lagoon. Along the way, you'll enjoy panoramic views of coral cliffs, turquoise seas and lush foliage, punctuated with splashes of brightly colored flowers. This is a true tropical paradise with little or no development, much like it has been for centuries. Still, you will drive through the island's administrative center of We on beautiful Châteaubriand Bay at the end of a sugar-white beach on the east coast. Nearby, you will find Luecila Beach, an unspoiled stretch of sand that ranks as one of Lifou's most picturesque and enjoyable as there are no resorts or shops to detract from the natural beauty. You will be free to do as you please there, whether it be swimming, beachcombing or simply relaxing in the shade of a coconut palm.

    • Marvel at Lifou’s natural beauty on a panoramic drive along its undeveloped coast.

    Volcanoes National Park

    Hilo, Hawái

    Duración 4 1/2 hs.

    Spectacular volcanoes, craters and steam vents are waiting to be explored at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park that has recently reopened after a period of tumultuous volcanic activity. The landscape of Volcanoes Park has dramatically changed as the floor of the Kilauea crater sunk over 1,500 feet and the overall caldera quadrupled in size and widened by over a square mile. Today, the explosive eruptions, earthquakes and ash clouds have been replaced by remarkable changes in the summit area. The highlights of this exciting tour include visits at each of the following destinations in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park while riding to each stop in comfort on a deluxe motor coach. Walk through the Kilauea Visitors Center to receive information on the Park's current conditions, view educational exhibits and interact with park rangers. Enjoy unforgettable views of Kilauea from Volcano House, just a short walk across the street. Kilauea's massive size and scale is realized from this vantage point. Then you'll be engulfed in rising steam as ground water seeps down to the hot volcanic rocks at the Steam Vents. The area between the edge of Kilauea's caldera and the outer cliffs are treeless because the extreme heat destroys their roots; only shallow-rooted grasses and other hearty plants survive here. On you return to the pier, visit the Big Island Candies Store. Established in 1977, each of its delectable candies and cookies are hand-crafted in this factory store. View the production process and see what goes into making these world famous Hawaiian treats. All products are made from only freshly roasted Big Island macadamia nuts and pure Kona and Ka'u coffee from farms on the Big Island. Since its founding, Big Island Candies has continuously introduced new and imaginative products that "wow" both the eyes and taste buds of its growing legion of fans. The Volcanoes National Park Tour is not to be missed and includes round-trip transportation from the pier by deluxe motorcoach.

    Historic Kona

    Kona, Hawái

    Duración 3 1/2 hs.

    Gain an understanding of the Big Island's history through attractions that highlight the life of the early Hawaiians and the influence of Catholic missionaries. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park will offer a glimpse into the early culture, as it was a place of refuge for those that had violated the sacred laws known as kapu. There, you will see a temple where criminals could be absolved of their transgressions and safely return to society. To complement the experience, you will visit the 19th-century Painted Church. Its interior features frescoes and murals of biblical scenes that a Belgian priest painted to teach the islanders Catholicism. The missionaries were also instrumental in dismantling the harsh kapu laws.

    Lifou, Nueva Caledonia

    Duración 2 hs.

    Discover how vanilla pods are cultivated and processed for export at a plantation and walk along a forest trail looking for Lifou's fascinating wildlife.

You will watch the pods being prepared step by step and gain an understanding of the economic importance of vanilla, which is significant on Lifou. As you will see in the plantation's gift shop, vanilla is readily infused into merchandise such as soaps, liqueurs and perfumes. Lifou is also known for its wildlife. Accompanied by a naturalist guide, you will meander through a forest where you may spot tropical birds, including endemic ones such as the New Caledonian cuckooshrike and two species of Lifou white-eye. The massive coconut crab is another creature commonly found in the forest. The name refers to its uncanny ability to crack open coconuts with its powerful pincers.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a vanilla plantation to see how this aromatic flavoring is derived from orchids.
    • Recognize how vanilla is used in products such as soaps, liqueurs and perfumes.

    Pearl Harbor & Honolulu City (Airport Drop Off)

    Honolulu, Oahu

    Duración 6 hs.

    Explore Honolulu’s highlights – from Pearl Harbor and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific to Hawaii’s first Christian church, and Iolani Palace and Washington Place, both former residences of the Hawaiian monarchy.


    Pearl Harbor is one of Hawaii's best-known landmarks and the scene of the devastating aerial attack by Japan that drove the U.S. into WWII. The Pearl Harbor Visitor's center exhibit galleries bring visitors closer to the sights and sounds of the events leading up to the attack on Oahu and its aftermath. These galleries display personal memorabilia, dramatic photographs, artifacts of the battle, and other exhibits.


    In central Honolulu stand face to face with the larger-than-life statue of King Kamehameha I, the leader who united the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom. Just across the street you'll see the Iolani Palace, residence of Hawaii's last two monarchs. European in design, it boasted Hawaii's first electric lights, flush toilets and internal phone system. Also nearby is Kawaiahao Church, Hawaii's first Christian house of worship, built of coral slabs from the offshore reefs.


    At the heart of the downtown historic district you will notice the elegant Washington Place, now a museum, and once home to Liliuokalani, Hawaii's last queen. Drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, in the extinct volcanic crater known as the Punchbowl. It is the final resting place of some 53,000 veterans who lost their lives in 20th century wars, including those who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Enjoy panoramic city views on your drive to the airport.


    Need to Know:

    Taha’a Cultural Experience

    Raiatea, Polinesia Francesa

    Duración 6 1/2 hs.

    Delve into traditional Tahitian culture by cruising to nearby Tahaa to discover how vanilla is grown and black pearls are produced before an island lunch and relaxing on the island’s gorgeous beach.


    After departing from the pier in a motorized catamaran, you will enjoy a wonderfully scenic cruise across a turquoise-blue lagoon to the island of Tahaa, which lies due north. Your first destination ashore is a vanilla farm. You will probably be greeted by the scent of the spice before arriving as 70% of the vanilla grown in French Polynesia is from Tahaa.


    Expect to see and smell fragrant vanilla pods curing in the sun. You may also stroll among the rows of climbing orchids that produce the pods and learn how they are pollinated. There will be some time for shopping before continuing on with a short drive to Motu Pearl Village. Established in 1991, the village cultivates black pearls in the warm, crystal-clear waters of the surrounding lagoon. After hearing the fascinating story of how the pearls are produced, you may shop for jewelry and other items adorned with these prized treasures. Like vanilla, black pearls are synonymous with Tahaa, and both are mainstays of the economy.


    After the visit, enjoy a cocktail or a fresh local beer before a traditional Polynesian buffet lunch is served while a live Polynesian group entertains you. It makes for an excellent introduction to the pareo show that follows. A pareo is a wraparound skirt that is essential to Tahitian dance. Finally, you will head for the beach of Motu Mahea to relax, sunbathe or get in the water before returning to the pier.


    Need to Know:

    Note: Guests wishing to swim and snorkel must be good swimmers and able to cope with occasional currents. Depth of water varies. Swimwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; biodegradable sunscreen; towel; and flat comfortable shoes that you do not mind getting wet, or aquasocks are recommended. Guests are cautioned not to touch or step on the coral reef for both safety and environmental reasons. Those participating in water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
