Society Islands

The Society Islands are a group of islands located in the South Pacific Ocean. They are part of French Polynesia and are situated roughly midway between Australia and South America. The archipelago is made up of 13 islands, with the largest being Tahiti.

The Society Islands are surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and are not bordered by any countries. The closest land masses are the Cook Islands to the east and Samoa to the northwest.

The road network on the Society Islands is relatively small, with only a few hundred kilometers of roads in total. Most of these roads are paved and in good condition, but there are some gravel and 4×4 tracks on some of the smaller islands.

While walking, cycling, and hiking are popular activities on the Society Islands, there are some challenges to be aware of. The terrain can be steep and rugged, and there are many areas that are only accessible by foot or boat. However, there are some excellent hiking trails on the islands, including the Fautaua Valley Trail on Tahiti and the Belvedere Lookout Trail on Moorea.

If you’re planning on exploring the Society Islands on foot, it’s a good idea to have access to topographical maps. GarminWorldmaps offers a range of detailed maps that can be downloaded and used offline, making it easy to navigate even in remote areas. These maps provide detailed topographical information, including elevation and contour lines, which can be essential when planning a hike or bike ride on the islands.
