Feejee Experience

Thursday, June 26, 2003
Discover the real Fiji in the most fun way possible... are you ready?

It seems that Fiji’s name used to be Feejee as the result of Captain James Cook misunderstanding “Viti”. It was later changed to Fiji.

FeeJee Experience gives visitors the best and most fun way of discovering the real Fiji at their own pace. You join and leave their tours whenever you want, deciding where you want to stay, where and when you want to eat, all with the assistance of local drivers and guides.

The four-day Hula Hoop pass starts in Nadi, has a stop at Natadola Beach, some sandboarding on the Sigatoka dunes and a night stop at the Coral Coast. On day two you trek into the highlands, river tube/board down the Navua Swim at a waterfall and travel down the Navua in a longboat. You have a night out in Suva and stay in one of the best hotels in Fiji. On day three you get off the beaten track through villages and meet some friendly locals. You raft down the Wainabuka River and maybe kayak to Nananu-i-ra Island at sunset. You stay on the island and explore many secluded white beaches and snorkel over the coral reef. On day four you head back to Nadi, stopping to enjoy some hotpools and natural springs, take the backroad of Lautoka through fields of sugarcane, stop for a barbecue and enjoy a real Indian curry that night.

The Coconut Milk Run pass runs for 13-17 days. It goes around Viti Levu, has a ferry trip to Vanua Levy, a night at Driftwood Lodge in Savu Savu, trip to Beachcomber Island and is basically for those travellers who love to experience local life and rough it a little.

The Kava Kaos pass is similar and runs for 11-15 days.

Accommodation in Suva is at Raintree Lodge, Fiji’s first eco-tourism lodge built in an old quarry high above the city. It has two human-made lakes, a forest park and is much cooler than downtown Suva.

You need to take a sleeping bag, day pack, swimming gear, running shoes and sturdy footwear and your credit card, which is the most convenient way to pay for things along the way.
