This is the ultimate tour for adventure-lovers who want a glimpse of local Fijian village life. Your day begins with a pickup from Sigatoka, and a minibus transfer to the Sigatoka River. You’ll stop at some photo-worthy destinations along the way, and start learning about area’s history from your guide.

When you get to the jetty, you’ll have a full safety briefing, put your valuables in lockers, and then it’s time to board the jet boat. You’ll whizz along the Sigatoka River and view stunning backdrops of the jungle, the water, and beautiful riverside Fijian villages.

Next stop is a traditional village where you’ll take part in a kava ceremony, meet the locals, and learn about their customs and traditions. You’ll enjoy a tasty Fijian lunch in the village before returning to the jet boat and heading back to Sigatoka.

Highlight of our week-long holiday!

From start (initial email contact) to finish (driver Joe dropping us off at our hotel) this experience was stellar. I initially contacted them to see if I could participate because I recently broke my foot and would be wearing a small cast and using crutches....More

What a wonderful day I had. We started with the drive from Sigatoka and our guide "Lady gaga" was the bomb. She was hysterical and her poor side kick "Sponge Bob" , oh well. Once we arrived at the river we were place in the...More
