Fiji Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Fiji is a Melanesian country in the South Pacific Ocean. It lies about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand and consists of an archipelago that includes 332 islands, a handful of which make up most of the land area, and approximately 110 of which are inhabited. Fiji is a land of tropical rainforests, coconut plantations, fine beaches and fire-cleared hills.
Nadi is the hub of tourism for the Fiji islands and Lautoka is the second largest city; both with views of the beautiful mountain ranges! Koroyanitu National Park offers hikers overnight adventure through the semi-rainforest, waterfalls and small villages. Tours to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant are also very popular for the different ornamental orchids together with forest walks through botanical wonders. Rakiraki is a colonial township that captivates visitors with its old world charm and serenity. Try Kava - a very popular drink in Fiji also known as yaqona ("yang-go-na"), and sometimes referred to as "grog" by locals. Kava is a peppery, earthy tasting drink made from the root of the pepper plant. The Fijian Islands are a haven for all watersports - diving, snorkelling and swimming. Motorised watersports such as jet ski's, banana boats and parasailing are also available from most resorts!
