Horseback Riding on Nuku Hiva

Nuku Hiva, French Polynesia

One of the top experiences to have on land in the Marquesas is to go exploring on horseback. Whether you are cantering along the beach or climbing up a steep dirt track that descends into a lush valley, taking in the unique beauty of Nuku Hiva from atop a horse allows you to get away from the island’s paved roads. A morning or afternoon equine excursion will give you a good sense of the dramatic landscape of this beautiful island paradise, much of it surprisingly untouched.
