Enjoy Fiji on this 5.5-hour activity tour that combines a motorized boat ride on the Navua River, a swim at a waterfall, bamboo rafting, and visiting a cultural village. Lunch is included. When booking, select the option that corresponds to your hotel location.


  • Fiji activity and cultural tour
  • Take a boat ride on the Navua River
  • Swim beneath the 'Magic Waterfall'
  • Watch for native wildlife, and enjoy the rainforest scenery
  • Visit a local village to learn about cultural customs, and enjoy a traditional lovo lunch

What You Can Expect

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, rainforest, gorges, farmland, rapids, and waterfalls. As you go, watch for native birds like wild ducks and heron.

In about an hour, you'll 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 30-minute ride aboard this traditional form of travel used by past inhabitants of Fiji. You'll arrive at a village where a Fijan 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.

Awesome tour and so much for your money! Our guides were very knowledgable and the views were incredible. The highlights were walking back to the magical waterfall and at the village, Nemani the guide! His english was absolutely impeccable! He had such great stories about his life and the history of his village. He made the tour! A must see for all ages. Lunch was amazing!

This is a very long day if you are staying on Denarau but it is so worth it. Bill was our guide on the bus and he made the trip fun and kept us laughing. The boats you take up the river to the waterfall are awesome but make sure everything you have on you is waterproof for ease of mind. They provided black garbage bags but I still had our phones, camera, and wallet in their own waterproof compartments. The hike to the waterfall was very short and easy and the waterfall was breathtaking! It was a refreshing swim after being in the boat and under the sun for 45 minutes. Bring sunscreen. The village tour was awesome and informative and the food was plentiful and delicious. We were very tired by the time we got back on the bus but we highly recommend this full day experience.

This was a really great tour. Loved the trip down the river, the cool off in the beautiful falls and village visits are always a wonderful cultural experience. Food and entertainment were both good. Definitely recommend!

This was an amazing day, thank you !!!!! - the only thing we would change was the rain - however that didn't spoil our magical day. Do yourself a favour, take this tour - get out of the city and into the absolutely breathtaking countryside with the friendliest of locals. You won't be disappointed.

Can I please ask again, as I didn't have a pen on the day we visited your village, and cannot remember the places you recommended to stay down your neck of the woods, somewhere not so touristy as we love the serenity and the beauty down there. If you could please give us some suggestions as we would love to come back and stay a while.

We had a wonderful day on this tour, the canoe ride up the river was great fun and very beautiful. Enjoyed the refreshing dip in the waterfall and then the trip back to the village. Fijian people are so friendly and welcoming and the village people made each of us feel important to them. Enjoyed a beautiful lunch and then a lovely massage by one of the village ladies. I would highly recommend this tour for a way to see a little of inland Fiji.
