  • Made of 19 main islands and atolls, the archipelago of Hawai,former Sandwich islands, is a treasure of biodiversity. Whether youwish to discover the snow-capped mountaintops, walk through thehumide tropical forest or go on a trek to attack the Mauna Loavolcano, whether you are dreaming about travelling through a desertregion or simply lounge next to a panoramic swimming pool alongthe Kohala coast, Hawai is the ideal destination.Did you know it? The first inhabitants of the island were thePolynesians coming from the Marquesas Islands around 2000 yearsago.The beautiful natural sceneries were used as a framework of the lastpart of the Indiana Jones saga (release in France on May, 21st2008). The sequences filmed represent 25% of the movie. Youshould probably be told that the birth of Indiana took place on abeach of Hawai while Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, onholidays together on the island, were making a sand castle.So, if you fell that you have an adventurer soul, book your tickets!
