Full description
Your 6.5-hour small-group tour begins with a wonderful scenic ride from Nadi to Lautoka, to see a side of Fiji that’s away from the tourist spots, as you pass from urban to rural areas. Listen as your guide tells you about the history of the places along the way, giving you a better understanding of local life. You’ll see beaches, fields for farming sugar cane and the village of Viseisei, where Fijians first settled. Stop off at a local supermarket to buy snacks before heading off-road, climbing steep hills and crossing river streams to reach the starting point of the hike. Follow the trail through the forest, spotting wild plants that are used for traditional medicines. You’ll be fascinated by local culture as you hear the stories behind each mountain you see, path you take and photo you snap. Cool off at a waterfall before getting ready for the trip back. After your hike, you’ll stop in Abaca village for a lunch prepared by a local family – an activity that benefits both the family and the village. As you eat you’ll hear stories about of local life in a relatively isolated rural area. After lunch you’ll return to urban life in Nadi.

A brilliant example of Fiji hospitality and natural beauty!

A massive shout out to Ray, my guide for Fiji on Foot, for the most fantastic day trip! Thank you for going over and above and being so relaxed about the schedule and activities for the day. Who would have thought a hike could be so relaxing?! To anyone considering this, please do! This is a great way to see some amazing view, breath in some fresh air and experience and enjoy some lovely Fijian hospitality and lunch.

Guide was EXCELLENT< but I would review the trail...

The trail was not the most exciting part of this day. The company of the guide, and the lunch at the village were excellent. The trail could definitely be improved, we walked through burnt out scrub, a fraction of native mature bush, and lots of pine logging. Find more interesting trails, through more native bush.
