Fun in Fiji – 5 Unforgettable Day Trips

The secluded archipelago of Fiji has some of the most breathtaking rugged landscapes, pristine blue lagoons, and white sandy beaches in the world. Going on a Fiji vacation can include more than throwing down a beach towel and soaking up endless sunshine. Get up close and personal with the country’s magical landscapes with these five fun and unforgettable adventure day tours in one of Fiji’s main islands, Viti Levu.

White-Water Rafting in Fiji’s Rugged Highlands

Fiji is a paradise for outdoor activists and thrill seekers. Viti Levu is where most of the population of Fiji lives, while Vanua Levu, Fiji’s other main island, is a quieter respite. In the remote highlands of Viti Levu, you’ll find an exhilarating river trip unlike any other on the Upper Navua Gorge.

White-water raft down a river that cuts a deep chasm into the rock, as it winds its way through some of the most formidable and beautiful terrain you can find in Fiji. Discover lush rainforest, narrow canyons, and hidden waterfalls around each bend. You can also paddle an inflatable kayak down the nearby Luva River, exploring lush rainforest grottos as you go.
