We came here on an ATV and the views here are superb. The ride up is a bit steep and you will need to come either on an ATV or a 4-wheel drive vehicle. The last part is very steep. On a clear day, you can see views of the Hilton and Intercontinental hotels and take in the various colors... More

Driving on two planks with a giant gap in b/w was a bit scary to me, especially coming back down from the top when gravity is pulling you and there are no rails. But it was also exciting and the view at the top is fantastic.

Excellent lookout near the coastline - rough approach by 4x4 with Tom an knowledgeable guide and good driver. He made the tour a real adventure and unique experience.

Getting there is not very easy...we did the ATV but in hindsight, would have done a minivan tour instead so we don't need to worry about navigating the treacherous path up the hill. But once you get there, it's a whole different feeling!! the view is magical!! absolutely stunning!! Do it!

One of the stops on the 4 x 4 inland safari. Well worth doing, the views are incredible and the ride is not too scary at all.

Go with a tour company and have them take you to the top! Exhilarating ride, but the view was beautiful at the top.

I went to Magic Mountain with my husband on our own. We rented a scooter and found the mountain by ourselves after half an hour driving around the area, which was a miracle, because there were absolute no signs in Moorea whatsoever. We were stopped by a lady who doesn't speak English. Sounded like the mountain belongs to her parents,... More

Magic Mountain was included on my Inner Island tour of Moorea. My guide was Jocelyn and she took 4 of us in her 4WD. The trip cost 5500F and lasted half a day. The drive up the narrow ridge of magic mountain was quite scary, I chose not to look and trusted Jocelyn's incredible driving skills. It is worth it... More

This trip is an excellent way to see the interior of the island and get to parts that cars can't reach. The guide is knowledgeable and the bikes appear to be in good order and you get helmets. We had 2 young children in our convoy and the guide took great care to ensure they were safe and amused. You... More

We took a atv tour. From Alberts. Our guide was Louis and he was so informative. I think this tour is worth every penny we saw things we couldn't have seen by renting a car. If you are not used to riding an atv it could be a little scary sometimes.This was fun!
