A deep dive into the interior
FIJI IS FAMOUS FOR ITS BEACHES AND reefs, but Talanoa Treks make a counterintuitive case for striking inland. Their single- or multi-day itineraries see you trek into the forest, wade rivers, swim under waterfalls and conquer the country’s highest peak. Trace old routes between villages, farm trails or pig-hunting tracks, taking you well off the beaten path and thus suited to those with a reasonable level of fitness and a lust for adventure. These trips are also a source of income to four rural communities and two locally-owned lodges, with whom Talanoa Treks partner. Available from April to December (not during the hottest and wettest months), tailored trips are also offered. Each includes guides and 4WDS used for backup as well as for transferring overnight bags. Visit https://talanoa-treks-fiji.com for details.
