Traveling with Fatu Hiva
Away from the outside world to as far as it is possible in these days (despite cell phone and sat TV), Fatu Hiva is a wonderful'stop of the earth and exit' place. If you arrive by ferry (there is no runway), a visible scare awaits you: rugged rocks plunge into the sea and beautiful coves, among them the bay of the virgins, the coast craggy.
A few huge Petroglyph - the largest in French Polynesia - are hiding in the woods for a while. It' a little difficult to get to Fatu Hiva, but for travelers who enjoy the thought of being abandoned for a few abandoned nights, this hard-to-reach place is far off the average people's radars (bar yachts).

So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? Hello everyone, My finance and I plan to go to French Polynesia in mid/end of August 2015. Avoiding the tourist isles, we head for Huahine, Taha'a, Fakarava and the Marquesas isles. Any other way to Fatu Hiva?
The ideal stay is 5-6 nights on the Marquesas Isles, includes Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa. As far as I know, there are only a few weekly departures to some of the isles. Do you have a good view to get a better picture and to be able to schedule the journey in more detail?
So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? It has had a deep influence on me and will always have a place in my being. And the good thing is that you can get there without much effort! There' s a (new) ferry called Te Atao Hiva that goes to Omoa on Mondays and Fridays, leaves Atuona on Hiva Oa and returns immediately.
Departures at 6 a.m. and will take 5 hrs if the wheather permits. Also note that the Marquesas period is 30 min before the Tahitan period. For travel on the Marquesas, Air Tahiti (not Air Tahiti Nui) is a very inexpensive funnel ticket for the Isle.
Also I canceled a trip between Ua Huka and Nuku Hiva because of the harsh Tahiti climate, and they were paying my boarding house for another day and a spare in the mornings, which was a nice trip. So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? Did anyone take a Ua Pou to Fatu Hiva?
So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? When you travel from Ua Pou to Fatu Hiva, you will cross Hiva Oa on the way between the two isles. So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? Berne, I trust your journey has gone well. I' m going to French Polynesia in March and want to leave some of the old isles.
So how do you get to Fatu Hiva? One year ago, me and my spouse went on a six-week Honeymoon in French Polynesia and our destination was to come to Fatuhiva, as it had been a lifelong fantasy since I was 10 when I was reading the Norwegian researcher Thor Heyerdahl's work.
After flying to Tahiti, we drove directly from the airfield to Moorea when we arrived in the mornings, as it was less packed than Tahiti, and it turned out to be the right one. It was very cool and we used it to get out of our jetlag and adjust to the speed of the isle.
It knows everything about the islands and can take you on trips, organize angling trips and walks, etc. Polynesia!
