Our Top Day Tours in Fiji —  Listings of Tour Companies

Although Fiji is best known for its beach resorts, there are plenty of activities on the land and on the water to keep you busy on your holidays. If your're looking to enjoy day tours in Fiji then Nadi and the Coral Coast make the best bases for sightseeing. On the outer islands, day tours are organised by the resorts as long as they can get enough guests to participate, which normally is the case. Of the outer islands, Taveuni is great for sightseeing tours with beautiful coastal scenery. If you're into history, then head over to Levuka Town, the old capital of Fiji - this historical Fiji tour can be organised from the small island resorts in the Lomaiviti Group (i.e. Toberua or Caqalai) or you can fly to Ovalau for the day from either Nadi or Suva.

Our Seven Favourite Day Tours in Fiji

Most of the day tour operations are based on the main island of Viti Levu serving tourists staying between Nadi and the Coral Coast. Most of the island resorts offer guided bush walks and local village visits, all of which are fantastic day tours in Fiji and could easily appear in the list below. Our selection lists only those day tours where you can join on an organised day tour independent on way you are staying.

Fiji Tour Companies

The best base for a sightseeing holiday is from either Nadi or the Coral Coast with plenty of bus tours visiting the major sites, and smaller private vans and river tours taking tourists further into the real Fiji where large vehicles and can't go. There are a couple of large tour operators based in Nadi but we find that the smaller tour operators tend to have a more flexible approach and visit more interesting and less commercial sites. Our preferred providers are Tourist Transfer Fiji (TTF) or you could try the smaller company Pehicle Tours. Another option is the Feejee Experience, a 4-night coach tour circumnavigating Viti Levu and visiting some great sights along the way including river tubing, jungle hikes and visiting a remote Fijian village.

On land, the tropical rainforest beckons adventure, with trails to waterfalls, zip-lining, white water rafting and several excellent championship golf courses. Most resorts organise Fijian village visits where you can explore the Fijian way of life, purchase souvenirs from local markets, participate in yaqona ceremonies or watch traditional dance performances. Generally the smaller the resort (hence fewer tourists) and the more remote you are, the more authentic the village experience will be. Day and overnight cruises are an excellent way to experience traditional Fijian life and soak in the natural beauty of the islands.
