The Fiji Adventure trip starts and ends in Nadi. It is an adventure tour that takes 9 days taking you through Pacific Harbour, Nadi, Fiji, Suva and 3 other destinations in Fiji.
Uncover the real Fiji on a eight-day cultural expedition from the picturesque coast to the lush highlands. Beginning and ending in Nadi, weave through untouched jungle while travelling to Fiji’s most pristine waterfalls and remote villages, discovering the Fijian way of living off the land and their sacred ceremonial customs. Hike over lush grasslands into local villages, raft through Fiji’s volcanic rock interior, snorkel off remote beaches at Nananu-i-Ra Island and wander through national parks brimming with tropical wildlife.
Day 01: Arrive Nadi
Bula! Welcome to Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu. Transfer from Nadi International Airport to your hotel .
Overnight at hotel.
Day 02: Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park – Pacific Harbour
After breakfast, head an hour south of Nadi to Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. Here, you’ll take a four-kilometre ranger-guided walk through the incredible dunes, ranging in heights from 20 to 60 metres – mounds that have formed over millions of years. The views from the sand dunes open out to spectacular scenes along the Coral Coast. Archaeologists have found relics of pottery in the national park dating back 2600 years and the area is home to an ancient burial site that gives clues to Fiji’s first inhabitants. After the hike, make your way to tonight’s accommodation at Pacific Harbour, where the afternoon is dedicated to chilling out at the pool or along Rovodrau Bay. Settle in, ‘cause you’re on island time now.
Day 03: Upper Navua Gorge – Pacific Harbour
Gear up for an incredible rafting experience in Fiji’s highlands at Upper Navua Gorge. Ride down rapids naturally carved through the island’s volcanic rock interior, surrounded by towering gorge walls, dense rainforest and dozens of waterfalls. The combination of the dipping parts of the river and biological diversity makes this Fiji’s best spot for rafting. We’ll stop at a lunch spot along the way to get a good feel for the rainforest terrain. Afterward, return to Pacific Harbour for another night in your beachside surrounds.
Day 04: Suva – Colo-i-Suva
Leave the resort after breakfast and make your way to Fiji’s capital, Suva. You’ll have time to take an optional walk through Suva’s main market and the city centre, then will have a guided visit to Fiji Museum, which holds exhibits that give insight to the early history of the island, and plays home to artifacts dating back up to 3700 years. This afternoon, head to Colo-i-Suva Forest Park for a short hike to palm-fringed freshwater pools where you can slip into the water. Look to the trees for birds with the park harbouring many of Fiji’s endemic bird species, including barking pigeons, golden doves, and musk parrots. Later that evening, continue listening to the sounds of the rainforest sitting next to the river at your lodge accommodation, situated on the outskirts of the park.
Day 05: Nabalesere – Nananu-i-Ra Island
Take a drive to Nabalesere village (approximately 2-3 hours), and on your way, you’ll see traditional Fijian life outside the main areas. The community is nestled in the province of Ra, where you’ll hear another form of greeting – instead of saying ‘Bula!’ as in other parts of the island, ‘Yadra!’ is used to say hello. Once arrived, your local guide will help the group present a sevusevu to the local village chief – this ceremonial gift is to gain acceptance into the community for visitors, often in the form of a kava root. While farming is the main source of income for many Fiji communities, partnering with the village helps to create an additional source of income. Embark on a 1.5-kilometre hike to the breath-taking Savulelele Waterfall, one of Fiji’s most majestic waterfalls, tumbling down from a height of 50 metres. After the swim, return to Nabalesere village for lunch and a hot lemon leaf tea, then travel to the coast (approximately 1.5 hours) where you’ll take a short boat transfer to Nananu-i-Ra Island to spend the night in beachside cottages.
Day 06: Naga Village
Soak up island life with a free morning on Nananu-i-Ra Island. Today is the perfect time to relax on the beach with a good book and cool off with a swim in the South Pacific. Otherwise, if you’re feeling more active, you could strap on a snorkel and get exploring underwater, or take a walk along the island’s ridgeline for some seriously scenic views. In the early afternoon, transfer off the island head inland to Naga village (approximately 3 hours), presenting another sevusevu to be welcomed and invited into the village. Enjoy a stroll through the surrounding food gardens and join the locals with a communal dinner in the village. Tonight, stay in the basic but comfortable village community hall tonight.
Day 07: Nubutautau
Get your hiking shoes on and prepare for today’s 11-kilometre trekking adventure across Fiji’s grasslands and into Nubutautau village. The journey will take around 6 hours in total and is broken up with lunch and a rewarding swim along the way. The trek follows the scenic Sigatoka River. Arriving later in the afternoon, you’ll spend the night in the village located in the heart of the island with a backdrop of small scale-farming, grassy hills and evergreen rainforest. Your village stays here in Nubutautau and Naga will give you a true sense of the day-to-day of Fijian locals, away from the resorts and tourist hotspots.
Day 08: Nubutautau – Nadi
This morning, continue your cultural tour of the village and learn of the history of the region in the 19th century, hearing the story of missionary Rev Baker. For those who want to get a bit more active this morning, an optional walk to a lookout point down the river is a good way to check out more of the area and get the heart rate up. Mid-morning, continue by 4WD along the ridgeline separating two of Fiji’s major rivers – the Sigatoka and the Ba – and back down to Nadi for lunch in a local cafe. Tonight, why not gather some of your travel pals together for a celebratory dinner, sharing your memories of an immersive Fiji expedition.
