Looking for the ultimate Fiji adventure vacation? Look no further!

Paradise from every angle! Our Highlands-to-Islands adventure takes us to the top of rolling rainforest highlands, down two hidden Fijian rivers with narrow canyon walls and dozens of cascading waterfalls and through azure oceans and kaleidoscopic reefs. Fiji’s culture and tradition are also critical components of our Fiji adventure, all topped off with deluxe beachfront accommodations and ultra-friendly Fijian hospitality.

This trip of a lifetime features Class II-III whitewater rafting on the Upper Navua River, as well as inflatable kayaking on the gentle currents of the Middle Navua River with a visit to the charming riverside village of Wainadiro, where friendly locals enthusiastically welcome visitors. Sea kayak on Beqa Lagoon and feel the rush as you soar high through the forest on a thrilling zip line canopy tour. Snorkeling or simply relaxing are also part of this one-of-a-kind Fijian adventure.

“Just wanted to let you know that had a great time with Rivers Fiji. Kim, Robb and all of the Fiji guys, Bas, Moses, Toby, Pedro....etc. made each of the trips a lot of fun. All of the trips were well organized and staffed. The river trips, sea kayaking, snorkeling, zip-line all were as fun and exciting as promised and we came away from there with lots of good memories.
The Pearl was a fine place to stay. The people there were kind beyond a fault and the food was very good. Our room had an ocean view and was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed exploring around Pacific Harbor and found our way to the Oasis Restaurant for cold beers and good food and atmosphere.

The trip to the village to do the Kava Ceremony with Chief Leo was one of the highlights of the trip. Toby explained the ceremony and we all felt that it was a privilege to spend time with him and to experience the village.

The Fijian guys who are trained as river guides were an absolute hoot. Fun guys with good skills and lots of stories about their culture. They are one of the best assets of Rivers Fiji.”
Jeff Weber ~ San Jose, CA

“Rivers Fiji was great! Everyone with that organization was first notch and I had a great experience with them.”
Todd Main ~ Armed Forces Pacific

“I liked the guides. They were very solicitous of our safety and comfort. They were very knowledgeable about the rivers and their country. The experience with the village people was most interesting.”
Lois Pickett ~ Castro Valley, CA

“The two day kayak trip was the best of all the great days. The guides were great and the stay in the village was an amazing experience.”
Jurjen Geerts ~ Wellington, New Zealand
