Overview

Come join us in discovering the friendly culture and sheer beauty of the Fijian Islands. Of the 322 volcanic islands and 522 smaller islets making up the archipelago, about 106 are permanently inhabited. Fiji is famed for its phenomenal landscapes, palm-lined beaches, and coral reefs with clear lagoons. Our itinerary is designed to provide you the opportunity to visit the splendid islands of Viti Levu, Waya, and Nacula known for exceptional adventure travel experiences. Based on the nature of our island destinations, we have arranged for a selection of accommodations including apartments, tropical resorts, and village homestays. This trip will provide unique opportunities for snorkeling, moderately vigorous hiking on some days, and the chance to get to know the Fijian people and their fascinating culture. Trip fee of $3,400 includes hotel accommodations in Nadi, Waya, Nacula, a Navotua Village homestay, group transport in Viti Levu, and group high speed catamaran transport to/from these destinations. All meals included with the exception of airline meal purchases, 9/15 lunch & dinner, 9/24 lunch, and 9/25 meals. Entrances to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, SRI SIVA Subramanya Swami Temple, Navotua Village, and the Sawa-i-Lau sea cave are included. Our adventurous yet relaxed pace itinerary is suitable for couples, singles, and families (recommended for children 12 + older). The trip size is limited to 16 participants. Participants opting out of the one-night homestay experience will have an additional estimated cost of $125 per person double occupancy or $185 per single (based on alternative accommodations available at the Blue Lagoon Resort). Additional cultural and activities are available at each location we are visiting.
