The first time I went to Fiji was over 25 years ago. I was the account manager for an incentive company taking a group of over 300 people on a week long incentive. It turned out to be much more than I bargained for, complete with a non violent coo that shut the airport down and a final night beach bbq that resulted in the food poisoning of over 200 people. The end result was a few extra days in Fiji that was more enjoyable for some than others.
Flash forward 20 years and I again had an opportunity to go back to this incredible polynesian wonderland. We started in Denarau Island on the main island of Vitu Levu. We enjoyed really unique activities only available in this incredible location. We took a private jet boat up the waterways to a thriving yet small and remote village where we met the local villagers in what was a very genuine and non scripted encounter. We walked around the village and got to see inside their homes and how they go about their daily routines. We also enjoyed a home cooked meal where each family prepared their special Fijian delicacies. It was an amazing experience. We also were invited to the Mayor’s home for a traditional Fijian ceremony complete with fire dancers and the famous Cava. After Denarau we went to Vomo one of other 333 islands that make up Fiji. This five-star experience was luxury, relaxation and an array of water activities.
We are so looking forward to exploring many of the other islands. There is so much to do whether you decide to get off the beaten track and discover things your own way, or be guided through your experience as part of an organized tour. You can satisfy your sense of adventure as you charge down thundering rivers in an inflatable raft or along rugged terrain in an off road jeep or enjoy panoramic views as you parasail over the calm South Pacific Ocean. With the incredibly clear warm water you can snorkel from shore to explore the vibrant coral reefs, or scuba dive and discover the mysteries in the unparallelled reef below. Fiji has some of the worlds best surfing you might cdarve your surfboard into iconic waves or gently paddle along the beautiful coastline in a canoe.
So many choices, what will your adventure be?
