Itinerary

Day 1Nadi
Welcome (Bula!) to Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu. Settle into your accommodation in the town of Nadi, situated on the west coast of the main island. The adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm – ask the hotel reception for details. After meeting your fellow group members, the evening is yours to enjoy, perhaps at a beachside restaurant or by heading into Nadi Town. Tomorrow we have an early start. Arriving a day earlier? Check out the chaotic colours of the Hindu temple Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami or ‘Nadi temple’ as it’s locally known. Nearly 40 per cent of Fijians are of Indian decent and Fiji-Indian cultural influences can be seen throughout the islands. Try the island’s fresh fruits with the usual suspects (mangoes, pineapples and oranges) and some you might not recognise (pomelo, rose apple and soursop) at the Nadi Produce Market, open Monday to Sunday. Special Information If you can't arrange a flight in time for today's welcome meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please have these on hand.
Day 2Pacific Harbour
Today we head one hour south of Nadi to Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. Here we take 4-kilometre ranger-guided walk through the incredible dunes, ranging in heights from 20 to 60 metres, the great mounds have formed over millions of years. The views from the sand dunes open out to spectacular scenes along the Coral Coast. Archaeologists have found relics of pottery in the national park dating back 2600 years and the area is home to an ancient burial site that gives clues to Fiji’s first inhabitants. After the hike we make our way to tonight’s accommodation at Pacific Harbour, where the afternoon is dedicated to free time before tomorrow’s adventure activity.
Day 3Pacific Harbour
Gear up for an incredible rafting experience in Fiji’s highlands at Upper Navua Gorge. Ride down rapids naturally carved through the island’s volcanic rock interior, surrounded by towering gorge walls, dense rainforest and dozens of waterfalls. The combination of the dipping parts of river and biological diversity make this Fiji’s best spot for rafting. After the exhilarating ride, we find a lunch spot to get a good feel for the rainforest terrain. Then we return to Pacific Harbour for an additional night at our beachside accommodation.
