“Bula Vinakka!” is what you will hear when you travel to Fiji as a warm gesture. Located in the South Pacific Ocean, this is a tropical paradise for all beach lovers. From exotic white sand covered beached with sun-kissed skin, this place is one that you must visit!
The prospect of organizing a trip to Fiji can be overwhelming with its 322 islands to discover. How do you start? We advise setting up camp at one of Viti Levu’s opulent resorts and then organizing day trips by boat to some of the well-liked and more remote islands.
A thousand miles from everywhere, in the tropical paradise of Fiji, you’ll find waterfalls, rainforests, and white sand beaches. Here are some ideas for things to do in Fiji.
1. Rafting at The Upper Navua River
The Upper Navua River is among the most tranquil and stunning rafting adventures you can ever experience. Even though the class 3 and 4 rapids are gentle, the bumping up and down the river with your hilarious guides still gets your heart racing.
White water rafting is best done in Fiji if you’re afraid of it. The 26-kilometer journey passes through some of the most beautiful terrains you will ever see. Deep canyons encircled by lush jungle are home to waterfalls of all sizes.
A green tour is being offered here. Many Kava Ceremonies were held, and requests for permission to conduct whitewater rafting on the island were made to the village chiefs. All trips are handled by the locals, and all of the tour guides are residents.
2. Ziplining through luscious jungle
Zip lining is the top attraction along Fiji’s Pacific Coast, which is known as the adventure capital of the world. An afternoon-long canopy tour with 8 zip lines that soar over the jungle canopy is available from Zip Fiji. The lengthy, swift, and enjoyable lines are all three!
Ziplining is a green activity, like the majority of Fiji’s attractions. Instead of nails, ropes and harnesses are utilized to secure the metal platforms to the tree trunks.
When building zip lines, great care was taken to prevent disturbing the nearby plants. Flying over a virgin jungle canopy is an incredible experience.
3. The Oho Caves
Gilligan was stranded on a stunning paradise island populated by headhunters in Fiji, the home of the headhunter. A tour of the Oho Caves in Fiji can teach you a lot about the country’s history.
The first tribe in the region to renounce headhunting and accept Christianity was the mighty Navatua Tribe. After that, everything was different. When visiting Fiji, we heartily recommend participating in this excursion because the villagers and chiefs were so delighted to have us experience their community.
4. Swimming with the Manta Rays
There are so many islands that are just waiting to be explored, and one of the best parts of this experience is swimming with the Manta Rays. With that said, scuba diving is a very popular activity in Fiji with its crystal clear waters and mesmerizing coral reefs.
The right season for you to enjoy this experience is between May and October. During this time frame, snorkelers and scuba divers from across the globe find themselves in Fiji to experience this.
5. Spending some time in a traditional Fijian village
Take a boat down a remote river far from civilization and become fully immersed in Fijian culture. One of our favorite experiences in Fiji was stopping at Tuvu Village to partake in a Kava ritual with the locals. The afternoon is spent dancing, eating, and listening to music, and everyone is warm and hospitable.
Here you can enjoy a very authentic Kava Ceremony. Kava ceremonies happen at all resorts and around the island, but at a traditional village, it is done as it has been for centuries. Plus, the Kava mixture is potent. You’ll have a numb tongue for hours!
So the next time you find yourself at a tropical destination such as Fiji, Travel Gooru encourages you to not just enjoy the beach paradise but also experience these things.
