Ziplining in Fiji

Thrilling Rides with Inspiring Views

If you hesitate before stepping off the platform, it's probably not fear, but awe. From the top of the mountain, there are views in all directions, taking in beaches, ocean and surrounding islands. Then it's time, and you launch into space to begin a flight that will carry you across river valleys and through the rainforest's roof. The adventure repeats on line after line as you swoop and soar down the slope, passing through unique forest ecosystems to arrive at yet another platform, where more views await. These are the added elements that make a zipline tour in Fiji more than just a thrill ride.

Highlights

  • Best for: Solos, couples and families, beach lovers, spa afficianados and adventurers
  • Best season to visit: Year round, drier from June-September
  • Weather: Tropical weather patterns rotate between winter from May - Oct and summer from Nov - Apr with common rain showers. Air temperatures can drop to low 70s in the winter and mid to high 80s in summer. Chance of rain and storms increase in Jan and Feb

Fiji Information

Ziplining in Fiji Overview

The Fijian island of Viti Levu is covered in mountains and tropical forests. This steep, verdant terrain creates ideal locations for zipline courses, which take the form of both canopy tours that glide through the upper branches of the forest, and higher-flying routes that soar from peak to peak.

Ziplining in Fiji Tips

Fiji's zipline courses are designed not only to thrill but also to showcase the natural environment. Platforms serve not only as launch points but also viewing stations to take in the flora and fauna of the region. Ask the guides to point out the old-growth Vesi trees, which are used to make the bowls used in native kava ceremonies.

Best Places for Ziplining in Fiji

Hills outside the town Nadi are laced with a web of 16 ziplines. The course, which is three miles, is woven into a spectacular wildness setting of caves, canyons and mountaintops. In the heart of the tropical rainforest near Pacific Harbour, lines run through a private eco-reserve where riders glide high above the forest floor and across the Wainadoi River valley.

What to Pack for Ziplining in Fiji

Wear shoes that won't fall off when you are in the air and relaxed-fitting clothing that won't bunch up and pinch under harness lines. Empty your pockets and leave loose items behind. If you carry a camera, secure it with a wrist lanyard. Bring a light rain jacket, because the mountains may see passing showers.

Passport and/or Visa Requirements

A valid passport is required for entry into Fiji that must be valid for 6 months beyond your date of entry into the country. A return or onward ticket is also required. No visa is required for stays under 4 months. Your passport must have at least 1 blank page for entry stamp. Read about Fiji's entry and exit requirements here. Fiji has a departure tax of 200 FJD that should be included in your international ticket.

Immunizations

There are no immunizations required to enter Fiji. It is always recommended that you consult the CDC Website or check with your doctor for recommended vaccines.

Culture and Customs

Fijians take pride in being known as the friendliest people in the world. The welcoming and easy-going attitude that permeates their island culture invite visitors to venture beyond resorts and discover a traditional way of life that values relationships, traditions and inclusion. It's not uncommon for Fijians to strike up a conversation with total strangers, and take a genuine interest in those they meet. This spirit of hospitality can be found at Lovo feasts, where foods cooked in open pits are shared in a communal fashion. Fiji's most iconic cultural tradition is the yaqona or kava ceremony. The sharing of this mildly narcotic drink, which is made from the ground root of the kava plant, creates a sense of relation and wellbeing rather than impairment. When visiting a village, it is customary to bring a gift of kava root, and the drinking of a cup is followed by a cry of Bula! Traditions remain, but Fiji is not stuck in the past, and the well-developed tourism industry offers the expected range of water sports, spa services and land-based activities. There are a number of golf courses on the major islands, and tour companies provide a range of adventures from horseback rides, cycle tours and zip lines to off-road safaris and even whitewater rafting in streams that plunge from mountainous interiors.

Electricity, Phone and Internet Access

The electrical current in Fiji is 240 volts AC 50 Hz. Fiji has three flat pin power outlets identical to Australia and New Zealand. Leading hotels and resorts offer universal outlets for 240v or 110v shavers, hair dryers, etc. A converter is recommended with a transformer to convert 240V to 110V. Some hotels offer universal outlets for either voltage appliances or adapters but to be guaranteed no problems it may be best to bring your own adapter.

The country code for the Fiji islands is 679. Direct dialing is available to and from Fiji. Check with your cell phone provider for international plans or voice, data and text. Many hotels offer WiFi.

Water Quality

Many hotels have purified water. If in doubt, bottled water is available for purchase.

Language & Currency

Fiji has three official languages: Fijian, English and Hindi (a Fijian form of Hindi spoken by the Indian population which is different than Hindi spoken in India). There are also many Fijian dialects which are spoken by the indigenous Fijians (Bauan is the most common).

The currency is the Fijian dollar (FJD). For the current exchange rate click here. Major credit cards are welcomed by hotels, restaurants, shops, rental car agencies, cruises and travel agents. Currency may be exchanged at the airport upon arrival or from ATMs located at banks.

Time

Fiji observes Fiji Time (FJD) which is 12 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (+12GMT). Local time in Fiji is 12 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time from March 1 to October 31. Fiji does observe Daylight Savings Time which is recognized as Fiji Summer Time (FJST) between November and February at which time it is 13 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (+13 GMT). Although the 180° meridian passes through Taveuni, all of Fiji is west of the international dateline, so it's one day ahead of the United States.

Location, Size and Population

Fiji is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, east of Vanuatu, west of Tonga and south of Tuvalu. The country occupies an archipelago of about 330 islands, scattered across 200,000 square miles of ocean, of which 100 are permanently inhabited. The two major island, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for approximately 85% of the total population. Fiji offers lagoons, rainforests, pine forests, mountains and over 1,000 miles of white sand beaches.

Fiji's population is 897,000 (2016).
