For paddlers, rafting through the Upper Navua Gorge on Viti Levu island in Fiji is one of the planet’s most incredible rafting experiences. Imagine this – a miniature Grand Canyon landscape, stacked over eons with black lava rock, then overgrown by luscious cascades of giant fern, vines and fragrant jungle foliage. Often referred to as “a river of Eden,” the Upper Navua River has cut a deep chasm into Viti Levu’s post-volcanic heartland, creating a roaring canyon full with dramatic detours and intimate, ecological sights unlike anything back home, or anywhere else in the world. On this OARS ultimate Fiji whitewater rafting trip, heaven lies just beneath your bow.

“Our river guide, Moses, was absolutely exceptional and a huge source of knowledge as he grew up in the local village and has been doing the tour for 16 yrs! He was full of great stories and taught us about native wildlife, lifestyle and general Fijian customs. He truly was a hilarious entertainer and a joy to spend the day with.
The Navua canyons are beyond beautiful and there’s a postcard around every corner, in fact there’s over 70 waterfalls throughout the tour! One of our raft companions ran out of photo memory less than half way down, that’s how impressive it was.
Don’t be afraid if you haven’t got much experience with rafting either as the guides do an excellent job of navigating the tricky rapids, you’ll just have to paddle every once in a while. We had a couple of close calls but were never in any danger of capsizing. You’ll even have a photographer capturing all of your hairy moments for the slideshow at the end of the trip, which is a hoot!”
“My boyfriend and I have just returned to Perth, Australia after two magnificent weeks holidaying in beautiful Fiji.
During the trip we were fortunate enough to come across a brochure for your white-water rafting tour of the Upper Navua River. After much contemplation (due to the expense as our finances were quickly dwindling!) we decided that it would be an experience we would regret not doing if we returned to Australia not having done it.
So at 5.30am on Monday 11th February we were picked up outside the Sheraton Fiji Resort on Denarau Island and commenced the journey to Pacific Harbour. There we were greeted by Moses and so began one of the best experiences of my life. The tour was by far the best of our entire trip which also included island sailing cruises, a cave tour and village experiences.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank each and every one of your guides, but in particular Moses and our raft guide, Phillip. Their enthusiasm and professionalism was second to none and made the day thoroughly enjoyable for all involved, they are a credit to your company.
I have recommended the tour to other holiday-makers we met during our time in Fiji as well as to friends and family back home in Australia who are considering taking holidays in the near future.
Please convey our heartfelt appreciation to Moses, Phillip and your other guides, Joe one, Joe two and Kinni.
Vinaka, thank you and well done!!”

“I most enjoyed the river experience, guides, scenery and learning, plus the culture and highland people in Fiji.”
-Maureen Wright ~Toronto, ON Canada
“The river guides, especially the leader Moses, were excellent at sharing stories about the area and meeting the guests needs, whatever they were. They were friendly, good humored, hard working and accommodating. They convey their love for the river and their work which inspires the guest to value the river even more. I know the Fijian river guides are the best river guides I have ridden with and deserve the best compensation possible.”

“I have been rafting in many places in the United States but Fiji truly has everything to envy. The trip was fantastic and our guide, Moses, was wonderful. He shared many interesting things about the local culture while we rafted which made the experience even more meaningful. The waterfalls were beautiful and the lunch was fresh and delicious. I just wanted to thank you for making the vacation a memorable one. A special “shout out” to Moses who really is an AWESOME guide!!!!!!!!!!!”
