The Coconut Odyssey
Discover the coconut in all its forms!
Discover the secrets of the coconut and embark on a day filled with adventures, scents, crafts and flavours.
Start the day following your guide on a magical hike at the heart of the island of Moorea. Guided by the legends of his ancestors, Jordan will share with you his incredible knowledge on our local History and environment: who knew that this flower could calm your headache or that this tree would help you cool down your body temperature ?
We’ll then head to a splendid over-the-sea private villa, Fare Nani, for a much deserved lunch. Help us cook one of the most popular local dish, making your own coconut milk from scratch, and enjoy a typical tahitian lunch over the lagoon of Moorea.
The coconut tree is a tree of a thousand possibilities! Spend the rest of the day unveiling the different uses of this tree in the tahitian culture. Follow Georgia through the making of Monoï and create your very own version of this local oil ; join Tepoe on a weaving class and learn how to weave a traditionnal ‘O’Ini – a little basket – and a Po’ara which adorn the hair of the vahines today.
Immerse yourself in the polynesian culture and discover how one tree can create life for a thousand people.

By choosing this expedition, you will further help our country develop an organic, local and natural agriculture. We believe that educating younger generations to a more sustainable way of life is the key. This is why we partnered with SPG Bio Fetia, so we can build, together, an organic garden for the NGO SOS Children’s Village *. Being experts in organic agriculture, SPG Bio Fetia appeared like the best partner to help on this project. We do hope that this garden will bring hope to the kids of SOS Children’s Village, participating in giving them the chance to grow up in a healthy environment.
When booking this tour, 1% of our benefits will directly be donated to this project.
* SOS Children’s Village is the largest non-governmental organisation focused on supporting children without parental care and families at risk.
