Hiking View Fiji

From strolling along a volcanic coastline to tiptoeing around tree roots up a cloud-topped mountain, this South Pacific island nation is a hiker’s heaven. Think waterfalls flowing into natural pools, empty beaches best reached on foot, vibrant birdlife and views that stretch all the way to the horizon.

While you’ll need to watch where you step, hiking in Fiji is very safe overall. There are no dangerous snakes, spiders or mammals on the trails, with the only major pest being mosquitoes. As you prepare for a trek that might take place under full sun or during rain showers on any given day, packing both sun protection and a lightweight rain jacket is a wise idea.
