Here’s the rundown on all the options you had a say in.

Island 619, Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort

Where to play - Adventure 

Snorkelling with Sharks 

Sharks have been beating their chests about being apex predators for far too long. Show them who’s boss (well, the reef sharks at least) by immersing yourself in Fiji’s shark snorkelling scene and letting them know you’re here to be mates. Dive locations dotted around Fiji’s islands are as plentiful as they are spectacular

Sigatoka River Safari 

Fiji’s leading river safari is a must-do for all international or local visitors looking to get a glimpse inside the lives of a local. On top of being an experience like no other, a portion of the ticket price goes directly back to the local villages to help them with various developments including water projects, electrification, telecommunications, installing concrete footpaths, and education and health initiatives. 


EcoTrax is an experience not to be missed. Ride along previously used sugar cane railways in mounted tandem bikes called velocipedes and soak in the sights. The hot tourist attraction has a zero-carbon footprint, ensuring that the bikes are 100% powered by solar, in turn reducing their footprint and creating small-scale businesses in the villages along its tour path. The final destination of your ride will leave you at a pristine, white sandy beach with a picnic made from fresh local produce as a special arrival treat. 

Go Dirty Tours 

Looking for something even more adventurous? Then Go Dirty Tours Fiji is for you. Take a two-seater quad bike throughout Fiji’s diverse terrain and uncover beautiful landscapes off the beaten track. From remote forests, villages, waterfalls, mud baths or hot springs, this tour is worth its weight in gold.
