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.

Sigatoka River Safari

Fiji’s original jet-boat safari, Sigatoka River Safari, offers a half-day, uniquely Fijian adventure in the heart and soul of Fiji, aboard custom-built safari jet boats. Passengers will travel along the Sigatoka River in jet boats experiencing the rush of high speeds, exhilarating tricks on the water, and a lot of laughs. You will then have the opportunity to visit authentic Fijian villages and experience a day in the life of the real "kaiviti" (Fijian). To bring the safari to life, a driver/guide is assigned to each group and introduces passengers to the rich culture of the Fijian people, sharing the history, customs, and legends of the area.

Off- Road Cave Safari

The Off-Road Cave Safari offers a half day of adventure for those who wish to experience the "road less travelled" on the all-terrain vehicle, into the heart of Fiji with a visit to the Naihere Cave. The name of the cave says it all… Naihehe means "a place to get lost." Passengers will journey across the mighty Sigatoka River, known to be the longest river in Fiji, and then head up inland where you will get to experience the caves and learn its history.
