These fascinating and unforgettable islands are rich in culture, treasure and mystery and are accessible on a voyage of discovery aboard the Aranui V.

These are our Top 5 ‘don’t miss’ experiences on the Marquesas Islands

  • Discover monumental stone tiki on fascinating archaeological sites and the museum dedicated to painter Paul Gauguin on Hiva Oa
  • Experience the warmth of the Marquesas or ‘Mana’ – a true spiritual connection with the people of the Marquesas Islands
  • Explore the cradle of Polynesian art in these enthralling island landscapes
  • The island of Fatu Hiva is the centre of Marquesas arts and crafts – well known for its hand-painted pareos and monoi, a perfumed coconut oil scented with tiare blossoms
