Escape to Fiji

Nature and Culture on Island Time

Trip Details


Days 1-4: Pacific Harbor, Viti Levu, Fiji

Welcome to Fiji! Your first destination is Pacific Harbour on the south side of Viti Levu, the largest Fijian island. Accommodations are at a small resort, set on a beautiful two-mile stretch of white-sand beach – a walk along which might be the perfect beginning or end to each day! While we can arrange activities for each day of your stay, you may also want time to simply relax. Fiji is good for that!One day, take an outing to Cannibal Cave and Sigatoka Valley, taking in stunning view of Fiji’s “Salad Bowl,” boarding a “bilibili” for a short raft trip, learning about Fiji’s last cannibal tribes, and exploring the Naihehe Caves. On another day, embark on a full day of fun and adventure, whitewater rafting down the Upper Navua River. Float through a beautiful 165-foot gorge, picnic on a sandy beach, and float some more, before taking out at Wainandiro.

Days 5-8: Taveuni Island, Fiji

Fly to Taveuni Island, nicknamed “the Garden Isle,” and a paradise for lovers of the rainforest. Taveuni boasts over 100 waterfalls, rivers, beaches, mountains reaching to 3,900 feet, rare birds, exotic flowers, and an interesting cultural element – heaven on earth! Paradise Taveuni is a much-loved, Australian-owned boutique resort on the south side of the island. In addition to resort activities, options for days on Taveuni include a half day Southern Taveuni Island Tour, learning about the local people and how they live, photographs at the Southern Blowhole, visiting beaches, and learning about tapa (bark cloth) production in the village of Vuna. Spend a day in Bouma National Heritage Park, a rainforest conservation area, where you can see waterfalls and wildlife, swim, hike, and learn the local history. Snorkeling is also on the menu, with a trip to the legendary Rainbow Reef, one of the most gorgeous underwater gardens in all of Fiji. Snorkel until the clown triggerfish come home!

Days 9-12: Turtle Island, Yasawa Island Group, Fiji

More islands, more relaxation, more adventure! The Yasawa islands are a chain of twenty ancient volcanic islands, known for their remoteness and rugged beauty – white sandy beaches, crystal clear lagoons, and unspoiled traditional villages. Remember the movie Blue Lagoon? Yup – Yasawa Islands! Stay in a beautifully-crafted thatched roof bure, on a property set among three beautiful bays, offering exquisite dining, reefs for snorkeling, kayaking, hiking trails, volleyball, spa services, and cultural offerings. Off-site, fish, visit underwater caves, go scuba diving, island hopping, spear fishing, or swim with manta rays.

Day 13: Denarau Island, Viti Levu, Fiji

Return to Viti Levu on a two-hour, high-speed catamaran ride, to spend your last night in Fiji paradise. 

Day 14: Fly Home from Fiji

Today, you’ll leave the beautiful Fiji behind, returning home.
