Description of Fiji walking tour

This fantastic five day walking tour in Fiji takes you into the jungles and mountain foothills of Viti Levu in search of traditional tribal villages set deep within the islandís stunning tropical scenery.

Some of the views over the Fijian archipelago are simply breathtaking and as you trek from one village to the next youíll find yourself walking within the mountain peaks and past the crystal clear rivers famed across the whole of the South Pacific.

Following a local guide and meeting welcoming tribal members is a real thrill and allows for a much deeper understanding of tribal lifestyles and the natural history of Fiji as well as presenting some unique organic experiences to take home and treasure forever.

This is an incredibly unique and far more authentic style of Fiji walking tour than you could ever hope to achieve independently and presents a side to island life that many casual tourists rarely get to witness.

The emphasis is always on authenticity and leaving no trace and this five day trip also contributes to NatureFiji-MareqetiViti conservation projects to ensure experiences benefit local people just as much as travellers undertaking the tour.

Optional extensions to this five day Fiji walking tour include extra days at an island eco-resort where youíre invited to rest and relax or take the plunge over Fijiís Great Sea Reef where a mesmerising marine world is ready and waiting in the warm waters surrounding Nukubati Island.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

As a company we are committed to running our tours in responsible manner as highlighted below:

Group size: we only travel with small groups. Our tours have a maximum of 16 people in any one group, to help minimise the impact on the villages and environment that we travel through.

Sustainable stays: We travel to remote communities where many visitors to Fiji never venture. You will be invited into their villages, be able to share and experience their daily lives and asked to join the community on the mat for an evening meal in the community hall.

Environmental initiatives: This walking experience has been specifically designed so you can walk between villages,. Our routes often follow old paths between villages, pig-hunting tracks, or farm paths. These can be rough and muddy. The villages work to keep these tracks clear for you, but please donít expect constructed walking tracks! A good level of fitness and a spirit of adventure are musts! Our local partner participates on the board of local organisations, actively working to raise environmental awareness on both a domestic and international levels.

We support and train people from our partner communities to guide you. The land youíre crossing is their land, their vanua, to which people in Fiji have an inalienable connection. We believe itís only right for them to show you where they live, farm, hunt and fish. Your guides are first aid trained, and while English doesnít always come easily to some of them, they are knowledgeable about the plants, animals, and land around you.

The Impacts of this Trip

To make sure our Community Immersion Tours benefit the local economy and community as much as possible we:

Run in partnership with four rural communities and a locally owned and managed lodge to create a mix of great walking and authentic culture. With these communities we work together to ensure that the treks are great for you and great for them.

Along the way youíll meet lots of personalities, whether itís the guides that walk with you, the ladies that cook our meals, or the elders whoíll share kava with you. They each have their own stories and jokes, and are often as interested in you as you may be in them. We encourage you to support the local handicrafts, buying local means you keep it local. There are many traditions and skills passed down through the generations, through your purchases you will be supporting many local initiatives such as workshops and in community development classes.

Beyond this, we also support Nature Fiji-MareqetiViti. Whoseí mission is to enhance biodiversity and habitat conservation, endangered species protection and sustainable use of natural resources of the Fiji Islands through the promotion of collaborative conservation action, awareness raising, education, research and biodiversity information exchange. Each traveller will contribute $200 AUD per person towards this sustainable initiative.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Snorkelling amongst the beautiful Fijian corals and reef fish then hiking into remote, but welcoming, Highland Villages to experience traditional customs
and rarely visited landscapes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Relax, bring a smile and be friendly, polite and outgoing.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The holiday provided economic opportunities, on a low impact level, to remote communities and money was also donated to Nature Fiji. Leleuvia Island has
adopted a no plastic bag policy and the village communities are picking up discarded rubbish and actively thinking about (and acting on) climate change and deforestation issues. We were able to help educate each other.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was a mixture of self indulgence and hard yakka. The second half was a truly unique experience and highly memorable with a tough day's hiking thrown
into the mix. An excellent combination of and jam packed with enjoyment.
