The Fiji Adventure
Itinerary day by day
DAY 1 : ARRIVAL IN NADI
From Nadi Airport, transfer to Sigatoka, which is around 1 hour.
Head to your accommodation and have a relaxed afternoon/evening, you have time to rest.
DAY 2 : SIGATOKA
The first attraction in Sigatoka are the UNESCO-awarded Sigatoka Sand Dunes.
The National Park can only be explored on foot, though the two-hour round trip isn’t too difficult. Your tour will take you to the top of the dunes where you have a stunning view of the coast.
In the afternoon, make your way to Kula Wild Adventure Park, which is located in a forested area about 8 km from Sigatoka.
The natural fauna of Fiji consists mainly of numerous species of birds and reptiles, many of which have been listed endangered species over the past decades. Kula Wild Adventure Park is all about protecting the most threatened bird and reptile species and increasing their population. When visiting this interactive park, you can learn about their breeding programs and even help feeding birds, iguanas and other animals.
Have a relaxed evening at your accommodation.
DAY 3 : CORAL COAST
Make your way to the Coral Coast, which is only a short ride from Sigatoka.
The Coral Coast is an 80km stretch of white beaches and secluded bays along the southern shores of Viti Levu. The coast has become well known for its variety of accommodation options, such as family-friendly resorts, boutique hotels and backpacker hostels.
However, the region is also home to many local villages where you can get a glimpse of the real Fijian way of life.
There are many activities you can do. From surfing lessons to snorkeling tours and jungle treks – the options are endless and will likely keep you busy for at least two days.
Have a relaxed evening at the beach and in your accommodation.
DAY 4 : CORAL COAST
Start your day with a (sunrise) beach yoga session and a good breakfast at your accommodation.
Besides all the water activities that you can do, a jungle trek with a local guide is one of the best. There are good chances you will be taken to a beautiful little waterfall only the locals know about. Once you’re there, you can swim in the natural pool of the waterfall and even climb up the slippery rocks to get a fun photo.
In the afternoon, go kayaking, try stand-up paddleboarding or go snorkeling in a coral reef only meters away. If you prefer a quiet afternoon, consider taking part in a free coconut jewelry class or enjoy the summer vibes while relaxing in the hammocks on the beach.
DAY 5 : SUVA
Transfer to Fiji’s capital city, Suva, which is about 1.5 hours driving from the Coral Coast.
Suva is not the prettiest of towns. It is noisy, humid and usually packed with people. However, it is the capital city and has a few things worth discovering.
For example, there’s Suva’s main market, which is full of local vegetables and fruits. You can stock up on healthy snacks here for very little money.
If you’re interested in learning about the history of the Fiji Islands, you may want to check out the Fiji Museum, which is home to exhibits and ancient artifacts.
Suva also offers some of the best shopping in Fiji with several shopping malls, like the MHCC or the TappooCity, along with great both local and international restaurants.
If you feel Suva is not your thing, you may also spend the afternoon at Colo-i-Suva Forest Park, which is an excellent place for hiking and swimming in palm-fringed freshwater pools. The park is not far from Suva and a peaceful respite from Suva’s urban chaos.
Last but not least, if you’re looking for a night out in a bar or club, Suva is the right place to be!
DAY 6 : VITI LEVU
Today, you’re going to head to paradise!
After breakfast, transfer to Bau Landing. The Leleuvia Island Resort crew will pick you up at Bau Landing and take you on an idyllic 40-minute boat ride to the small island.
Once in Leleuvia, settle in your accommodation and have a relaxed afternoon and evening in this little gem.
DAY 7 : VITI LEVU
Have a relaxed day on Leleuvia Island.
Enjoy some snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming and sun-bathing. The resort usually organizes other fun activities as well.
Perhaps, they’ll even do a Lovo-Night (Lovo is the national dish) and Kava-Ceremony while you’re there.
Also, don’t forget to go to the beach at night to see the stars. As there is no light around the island, it is the perfect place to watch the stars and star constellations of the Southern hemisphere.
DAY 8 : TAVEUNI ISLAND
After two relaxing island days, you’re going to leave Fiji’s main island Viti Levu today.
Take a flight to Taveuni.
DAY 9 : TAVEUNI ISLAND
Taveuni is the third-largest island in Fiji and home to lush jungles, secluded waterfalls, beautiful beaches and plenty of wildlife.
If you have the chance, go on a half-day/full-day trek in Bouma National Heritage Park, which makes up 1/3 of Taveuni. Explore the Fijian flora, see native wildlife, and take a dip in the famous Tavoro Falls. Guided tours are available in many resorts. You can also find all kinds of information and guides at the visitor center of the national park.
If there’s still time in the afternoon (or on the next day), check out the Waitavala Water Slide, which is, in fact, a natural rock slide.
Very close to Waitavala Water Slide, you’ll also find the International Dateline. It is one of three spots in the world where you can jump between past and present time.
DAY 10 : TAVEUNI ISLAND
Besides the rainforests, Taveuni is most famous for its excellent dive sites.
Both the Rainbow Reef as well as the Somosomo Strait are often considered some of the world’s top dive sites. They’re home to healthy coral gardens and over 1500 species of fish.
Whether you’re a dive novice or professional diver, I recommend taking a half-day/full-day dive (or snorkel) trip with any of the dive shops on Taveuni to see the colorful underwater world yourself.
It is truly a unique and totally awesome dive experience you don’t want to miss when in Taveuni.
DAY 11 : VANUA LEVU
Take a domestic flight from Taveuni Airport to Savusavu.
Once you’re in Savusavu, transfer to your accommodation and, perhaps, have a stroll around this gorgeous harbor town. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés on the waterfront.
DAY 12 : VANUA LEVU
The hills and valleys surrounding Savusavu are covered in lush rainforest and offer incredible hiking opportunities.
You can chose to go on a guided trek to explore the colorful and diverse flora and fauna as well as some stunning cascades and natural pools.
If you’re looking for some more action-filled adventures, consider booking a half-day river tubing tour. It’s a 1.5-hour river ride with some sections of the river being relaxing and others being fast and adventurous. Afterward, you’ll be taking to a volcanic hot spring in the middle of the tropical rainforest, where you can take a dip in the water and enjoy lunch with the group.
DAY 13 : NADI
Today, you’re going to fly back to Nadi, which is by far the fastest way to get back to Viti Levu.
In the afternoon, take a walk around Nadi. You can visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, which is an impressive and very colorful complex with woodcarvings of Indian Hindu deities.
If you need to buy some last-minute souvenirs, head to Nadi Handicraft Market.
DAY 14 : MAMANUCA ISLANDS
Day trip to the Mamanuca Islands.
The Mamanuca Group is made up of 20 small volcanic islands, some tiny coral atolls surrounded by sand bars and palm-fringed beaches.
Take the Mamanuca Sailing Day Trip.
You will take a sightseeing cruise through the beautiful archipelago and spend some time on a tiny island that you have all to yourself. You can do snorkeling and other activities and enjoy breakfast, lunch, and several snacks aboard the vessel.
DAY 15 : END OF ITINERARY
Flight back from Nadi airport.
End of our services, see you soon!
