On this 16-day tropical adventure, you’ll snorkel over colourful coral reefs that teem with wildlife and plunge into pristine waterholes below hidden waterfalls. Starting in the islands of Samoa, spend time learning about the locals' traditional culture and village life. Take fully guided day tours around different parts of two islands and enjoy some time to yourself to relax and unwind. With a few nights in a fale (a traditional waterfront villa), you’ll fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and experience a traditional fiafia night with fire dancing and feasting – then, take on an active escapade in gorgeous Fiji! From the picturesque coast to the lush highlands, you’ll weave through the untouched jungle to the most pristine waterfalls and remote villages. Uncover the Fijian way of living off the land with village stays and sacred ceremonial customs, hike over lush grasslands, raft through Fiji’s volcanic rock interior and snorkel off remote beaches at Nananu-i-Ra Island. Wander through national parks and cool off in the sparkling South Pacific waters. This is bliss!

We’re in the process of figuring out how much CO2-e this trip generates. In the meantime, find out more about our climate commitments and carbon reduction target.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Make the most of the pristine water and slide down a natural rockslide into the waterholes at Papase’ea. Visit the stunning sandy beaches Vauvua and Lalomanu and snorkel in Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, teeming with tropical fish and coral. 
  • Be amazed by the ancient Star Mounds in Cape Falealupo, one of Samoa's most sacred places, and the remains of the Virgin's grave and the LMS Church. Walk across lava fields – evidence of the destructive eruption in 1905. 
  • Enjoy a fiafia night – a traditional celebration of dance, costumes, music and feasting on dishes cooked in an umu oven using hot volcanic rock.
  • Get your pulse racing as you raft through the heart of Fiji’s highlands at Upper Navua Gorge, and take the plunge with a swim at one of Fiji’s most picture-perfect waterfalls in Nabalesere. 
  • Go on a full day’s hike through the grasslands into Naga to Nubutautau villages, hearing firsthand about the history of the area from expert guides and local villagers. 

Is this trip right for you?
  • There are many water-based activities included in this trip. You will get the most out of this trip if you are a competent and confident swimmer. If you are not so confident, we recommend that you bring a life jacket from home to allow you to still participate safely. 
  • The accommodation for this trip is comfortable, but simple. We provide experience-rich travel that focuses on authentic representation of the location – therefore, your accommodation is not in a luxury resort.  
  • This is an active trip with several days of point to point hiking. You only carry a day pack, with your main bags (and for any non-hikers) being transferred by vehicle between villages. There are two nights of multi-share stays in the local villages we visit.
  • Some of the best scenery in Fiji is found on hikes. So, while this trip doesn't require a high level of fitness, it’s essential to be at least moderately fit and be able to hike regularly if you want to partake in all activities.
  • As we focus on visiting less explored parts of Fiji, there is limited beach time on our itinerary. If you are interested in classic Fiji we recommend spending a few extra days before or after your tour enjoying the beaches and snorkelling in the Mamanuca or Yasawa Islands, a boat ride from Nadi.
  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments. We ask for you to please be aware of cultural considerations when entering and staying in local villages. Your tour leader and local guides will assist with local etiquette.
  • As we stay in some locations where there are few options for eating out, some meals may be set menus rather than being able to choose from a variety of options. Some accommodation options have limited numbers of different room types, so not everyone may have the same room style.
