The Food and Traditions Expedition
Embark on the very first food expedition of Tahiti.
Discover our islands in a very atypical way and get a real taste of what French Polynesia has to offer. Be curious, be adventurous and try it all: raw fish, exotic fruits, punch, pastries.
On your journey, you will meet passionate foodies who are usually behind the scenes, such as fishermen and farmers, and enjoy all the flavours our lands and seas hide.
BUT MORE THAN JUST TASTE, IT’S ABOUT HISTORY.
We will guide you through this heritage, our traditions and the recent modernisation of our cuisine to understand better what we eat…. and who we are, us, Polynesians. How did we arrive on those remote islands ? What was our main source of food ? How have French and Chinese influenced our cuisine ? How many different techniques of fishing exist ?
Embark on a delicious yet interesting journey, after which you’ll never eat the same.
*18 years-old people and over only can join the expedition.
* We also offer non-alcoholic alternatives at Cocktail Hour and during the Pairing Dinner.
Today is all about settling down. Meet us for Cocktail Hour at one of the most popular bar in town: meet everybody and get full details on the plan for the next few days… and like we say here, manuia (cheers) !
Then follow us to one of our favourite chinese restaurant and discover the most popular cuisine in French Polynesia, halfway between Tahiti and China.
Itinerary subject to change
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. So we invest time and money building an organic garden for the kids of the NGO SOS Children’s Village*. When booking this expedition, 1% of Nani’s 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.
