Whether you’re looking for an island escape, adventure or just to kick back and relax, Wanderlands Fiji ensures you will experience a selection of Fiji’s best Culture, Fun and Adventure.
Day 1: Nadi
BULA and welcome to Fiji! Your group leader will be at the airport waiting for you and to check you into our accommodation in Nadi. The rest of the day is yours to explore, relax poolside and to sink into the relaxed Fijian way of life. Later that night, we go for welcome dinner and drinks where you will meet the rest of your Wanderlands Fiji family. Later we have a traditional Fijian welcome, as we sit around the ceremonial Kava Bowl and try the local drink, Kava, from a hollowed-out coconut shell.
Day 2: Coral Coast
An early start today as we are heading south to the Coral Coast, where we are going to spend the next two days at the beautiful Beachouse Resort. As soon as we arrive we will get ready for the first activity of the day – an epic boat trip to explore Yanuca Island and enjoy some snorkelling, kayaking and a delicious beach BBQ! Back at our resort, we get the chance to do a sunset yoga class to find our zen in paradise. When nighttime comes, we sit around the bonfire with the locals for a few songs with the guitar.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3: Coral Coast
The Coral Coast of Fiji is a perfect place to learn and practice your paddle-boarding skills, in a calm and sheltered area. If you would prefer, you can team up and hop in a double kayak and share the fun of paddling around in the sea. After a delicious lunch, we then get our comfortable trainers on for a little bush trek to Novala Falls; this waterfall is sure to cool you off after the trek through the jungle! At night, we get another chance to see the incredible sunset and enjoy some drinks.
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Day 4: Yasawa Islands – Blue Lagoon
Yasawa Islands, here we go! Cruising business class with aircon, drinks and snacks available, while checking out some beautiful islands on the way to our destination and, if we’re lucky, see some sea turtles or manta rays swimming around us as we travel. We check-in to our epic resort at lunchtime, and then it’s a short walk to the restaurant for some delicious food. Once our bellies have been satisfied, its time to head out for some kayaking, paddle-boarding or you can get yourself a sunbed to work on your tan.
Day 5: Yasawa Islands – Blue Lagoon
Today we have the rare opportunity to gain an insight into Fijian living. Firstly, we visit some natural limestone caves and will get to explore and learn how they came to be. We also visit a local village and immerse ourselves in their culture. We will learn some traditional crafts and play football, or volleyball, with the children. We also interact with the elders of the village, who will talk about the day-to-day lives of the Fijians and teach us how they farm and harvest their food, there might be a chance to purchase some of their handmade crafts.
Day 6: Yasawa Islands – Mantaray Island Resort
The exploring doesn’t stop as we head to Mantaray Island, which has some of the best snorkel points in the world! With over 1,000 species of fish and mammals in the surrounding waters, you’ll soon see why. When we arrive we’ll get the opportunity to snorkel and have a few games of volleyball on the beach, and even sip on some delicious cocktails while perfecting that tan. Come nighttime, we will gather around the campfire and enjoy the evening with our Wanderlands family.
Day 7: Yasawa Island – Mantaray Island Resort
On our second day on Mantaray Island, we will start off with some beach activities and explore some spots that only the locals know about. This is our last evening together, and what better way to end a great week than with a sunset boat trip, relaxing with an ice-cold drink in your hand, watching the beautiful sunset, floating around the crystal clear waters of Fiji. Back on dry land, we enjoy a farewell dinner with local dance and then we party in style with the rest of the groupies to celebrate having just had the best trip of your life.
Day 8: Yasawa Islands
Time to say goodbye to your group and to swap those awesome pictures. We still have a few hours to take in the beautiful sights and have some time to have one last kayak or paddle in the sea before we catch the boat. For those of you who will continue your travels in Fiji, your group leader will be on hand to provide info on the best islands to visit and book your transport, and any other activities, such as scuba diving. For those who need to leave Fiji, your leader will be able to organise your transport to the main island to catch your flight.
