Joyous. Verdant. Exciting. Fiji’s jungles and beaches offer adrenalin and escapism.
Historically, Fiji’s fierce warriors and treacherous waters kept the archipelago of 333 coral-ringed islands wonderfully isolated. Now on the radar as the pinnacle of exotica, Fiji’s intoxicating offerings are open for indulgence. Snorkel with enormous manta rays, trek living rainforest, get caught in a torrential tropical shower, sunbathe on icing-sugar sands, and hang out with wise tribal chiefs.
Meet locals in a friendly village as a personal guest of the Chief; race through the surf in a traditional dug-out canoe; relax on your private yacht, drifting without an agenda and enjoying special tribal welcomes as you approach each island; snorkel or dive among some of the most diverse marine life on Earth, from huge manta rays, to sharks and turtles; hike to one of the many rainforest waterfalls where the canopy is raucous with parrot song; camp under the stars; kayak, sail or jet-ski to secluded bays and secret coves, where empty ivory beaches are yours alone; take a scenic helicopter ride between the islands, stopping for a picnic lunch with superlative views on a mountain peak.
