New Floating Water Bikes Expand Goway’s Range of Tahiti Vacations
New ‘Schiller Bike’ takes the cycling safari out on the water, enhancing Bora Bora vacation packages.
Biking though the hinterland has been a Tahiti vacation staple for years. Now Goway is giving its Globetrotters the chance to continue their biking adventure on the water when they stay at the Four Seasons Bora Bora.
The unique experience is made possible by the Schiller Bike, a pedal-powered aquatic bike that has taken its creator, Judah Schiller, across the Hudson River, and even the choppy waters of San Francisco Bay. Holiday makers using the bikes in Bora Bora however are unlikely to contend with such challenging conditions. On French Polynesia’s most famous atoll, the bikes are used for exploring the pristine lagoon, allowing cyclists a close-up look at the abundant marine life, and stunning views of the atoll’s mountainous interior.
The Schiller Bikes join a wide range of activities already available to globetrotters enjoying one of Goway's Bora Bora vacation packages – particularly those looking for more than a simple beach getaway or honeymoon. Bora Bora’s calm lagoon is ideal for snorkeling among colourful schools of fish and harmless black tip sharks. The trails that ascend Bora Bora’s mountains are perfect for a 4WD safari, hiding some impressive World War II relics among their natural treasures. Meanwhile, those wanting to ‘go deeper’ can strap on an Aquasafari Helmet for a walk on the lagoon bed, or take the controls of an Aquabike Underwater Scooter – not to be confused with the Schiller Bike, which floats atop the lagoon.
Such Tahiti vacations are just one option among Goway's popular honeymoon destinations. The company’s Pacific division has expanded its range of 'adventure' activities to meet increasing demand among travellers to Australia, New Zealand, Bali, and other popular spots.
The Schiller Bike is exclusive to the Four Seasons Bora Bora, part of several of Goway’s Bora Bora vacation packages. Goway can also book a competitive fare with Air Tahiti Nui, which offers direct flights to Papeete from Los Angeles, with onward connections to Bora Bora and other Tahitian islands, as well as New Zealand and Australia.
