Adventures Abound in Fiji!

Whilst you’re looking to simply escape miles and miles from everyday life back at home, why not have a little bit of fun, immerse yourself in traditional art, or dare to explore areas you would not otherwise have known about?  Who says you can’t enjoy a little adventure and fun in the pristine islands of Fiji?  Here are my top five picks:

 

1)   Sailing Adventures – Whether it is for game fishing, island hopping or to hire your own chartered boat for a one-of-a-kind private luxury cruising experience, any boating experience allows you to drift into the crystal Fijian waters amongst the 300+ islands.

2)   Shark Diving – So you are a brave soul and want to ‘test the waters’ by diving into the deep and swimming with some marine friends?  No problem – Fiji has got several shark diving excursions where you can typically meet and interact with up to 8 different kinds of shark species on a single shark dive.  Enjoy the rays too!

 

3)   Cooking Classes – Truly immerse yourself in the Fijian culture and learn to whip up succulent traditional dishes using traditional cooking techniques, secrets, helpful hints and entertaining stories.  Ingredients are gathered early in the morning at the local markets ensuring the freshest produce is used.

4)   Heli-Tours – Nothing is ever more scenic than seeing some of Fiji’s gorgeous islands – and soft coral reefs, which Fiji is known for – from above.  It’s also a great way to transfer to another island, saving you some precious holiday time, while enjoying fantastic views.

5)   Eco Tours and Treks – From village tours where you get to experience a kava tea ceremony, to waterfall tours and hikes deep into the tropical forests of Fiji, these half-day or full-day excursions get your heart pumping, provide a great workout and enable you to learn more of the Fijian culture.
