Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts with hotel pickup by your guide for the journey to Navua, an adventure hub in Fiji. When you arrive at Pacific Harbour, board a motorboat for a ride along the Navua River, passing by villages, rain forest, gorges, farmland, rapids, and waterfalls. As you go, watch for native birds like wild ducks and heron.

Reach the 'Magic Waterfall,' the tallest falls in Navua. Take a dip in the clear water underneath the cascade, and then hop on a bamboo raft for your third activity—a ride aboard this traditional form of travel used by past inhabitants of Fiji. Arrive at a village where a Fijian warrior guides you to the bure, the meeting house. Learn about local customs and traditions, and watch a welcome ceremony known as a yagona, during which you can try kava, a drink made from the root of a plant. Hear about the village's history, founded in the early 1800s, and then watch a war dance and feel free to join in the snake dance, if you wish.

Test your skills at painting on traditional fabric, and observe local women braiding mats before enjoying your lovo lunch, which consists of fish, meat, and vegetables such as wild yams, wrapped in banana leaves and baked underground. Fruit and salad accompany your meal. When you're done eating, your driver takes you back to your hotel for drop-off.

The Tour Offers The Best Waterfall / Cultural & Food Experience as a First Time Visitor!
, Jan 2022
I was staying in Suva and wanted to get outdoors and experience Fiji as a local. The tour was a fun experience with hard working staff that took us on a canoe, on a raft, to the amazingly refreshing waterfall, and back to their village for a cultural experience and delicious lunch! I traveled solo and felt welcomed the entire time. I highly recommend for people who want to get outdoors and have 30 minutes of fun at a huge waterfall and eat amazing food with nice people. At the end some local ladies had handmade crafts which I usually never buy but bought two necklaces! I live in LA and have been wearing them to parties. lol Last but not least, Scott the owner of the business drove me back to my hotel in his car as a courtesy.

Excellent guide and transportation. Canoe trip was good fun. We got to the waterfall before the ship's(Jewel) tour arrived and were still there after they left. Guides climbed the cliff and jumped off. We also got to experience a bamboo raft on the return to the village where we had a cava ceremony, welcome dance(similar to a Haka) and excellent meal and a visit to various buildings and meeting house in the village. Much better than the quick, more expensive ship's tour. Highly recommend it.

Bula JBS, We thank you for taking out your time to share your experience with us here. We are glad that you have enjoyed your day with us. Currently, we here in Fiji are on curfew and certain areas on 14 days lock-down due to the COVID19. Hopefully, a vaccine is found soon enough so everything could return to normal. Stay safe!
Absolute Blast!

Awesome! This tour is amazing. The long boats up the river are so much fun and the waterfall swimming hole is a beautiful place that is hard to put into words. Our guide (Molikai-not sure if spelled right)was the best. He did a terrific job. Definitely a must do tour when in Lautoka. Book through Viator and save half of cruise ship price.

Fantastic day and very warm welcome from the Fijians . Not for the elderly or people with mobility problems though as difficult getting in and out of canoe and onto bamboo raft . Great day out

This excursion was like no other for interest and incredulity. I would not have missed it for the world. Having said that, there are several points that one should be made aware of. Unfortunately we were not! Firstly, arm yourself with an insect repellent. The flies, although not of the biting type are myriad. Secondly, but for the generosity of a fellow tourist, I would have been forced to abandon the trip early in the piece. We, six tourists, due to the low level of the river water, were asked to walk across a stretch of stony shingle to enable the canoe to proceed unloaded, above a shallow area of the rapids. Due to the fact that I had not brought suitable footwear, I initially told our guide that it was impossible for me to walk on shingle in bare feet, due to historical foot injuries, in order to reboard the canoe some 80 metres upstream, A much younger fellow tourist went barefoot, kindly lending me his own flip flops to negotiate this hazard, thus enabling the adventure not to be abandoned, as I could not have been left alone in mid river. Correctly shod, I continued the arduous climb to the waterfall which was at an elevation of some 250 feet and some 270 metres up rickety concrete steps on the edge of a steep ravine, with only an occasional rather slack rope rail to prevent falling into the torrent below. Not a problem for a young person, but my partner, and I, being relatively fit octogenarians found it a challenge to keep pace with the rest of the party. Thirdly, due to the length of time we were subjected to bright sunlight, a good quality sunscreen is advisable, plus a hat and sunglasses. Due to spray encountered in the rapids, a spare set of dry clothing is necessary after the canoe part of the excursion. A special mention of merit goes towards our guide, who was most helpful in advising us of the points of interest. He later turned out to be the bamboo raft handler, and local chief who later took an active part in the village ceremonials wearing the requisite attire of his office, ie tribal costume!

Fantastic day and worth the drive from Denarau. Starts out with longboat trip through the rain forest, fairly short walk back to the waterfall (a bit slippery, wear good shoes), then a short ride on the bamboo raft and transfer back to the longboat. Once back on shore at the village, we had a marvelous meal and Kava ceremony with our lovely hosts. Highly recommend.
Fantastic trip.

Would recommend 10/10

Had an amazing time with my sisters. So glad we got to experience and learn about a traditional Fijian village. It allowed us to understand the country.

We had an awesome time. Our tour guide Ziggy kept us entertained and informed on the bus trip down to the village and on the canoe ride to the falls. The waterfall and swim were spectacular! We were welcomed to the village by the representative Nem, who was also very entertaining and passionately told us all about the village history and customs. Our lunch prepared by the village family was delicious! An absolute highlight of our stay in Fiji and highly recommended to all!
Well worth the drive

From the coral coast it was approx a 2 hour drive but the travel guides were very informative and charming and it went quickly. The ride up the river was fun, and the swim in the waterfall exhilarating. Once back at the village, the traditional meal we had was better than what I’ve had at the 5 star resort I’m staying at! We had welcome Cava ceremony and watched various performances and displays of traditional village life. So very glad we did this 😊
