Why Walk with Us

Fiji is a great place to go hiking and Talanoa Treks is Fiji’s only dedicated hiking company.

We aim to take you off the beaten track, to experience Fiji’s interior – its dramatic peaks, pristine forests, sparkling rivers, remote villages and unique history – and by going on foot you have the opportunity to experience the vibrant traditional culture that runs deep within Fijian society.

We work in partnership with the communities you visit to reduce the impact and maximise the benefits of your trip. We believe your adventure should be great for you, and great for the communities!

Your trip provides a supplementary source of income to remote, largely subsistent village communities in Fiji’s interior, in the form of payments for guides, accommodation and food, as well as contributions to village development funds.

We actively try and avoid being overly touristy. We aim to provide an escape from Fiji’s beach tourist scene and to create the space for a genuine cultural experience and an insight into rural Fiji. We keep groups small and allow you the opportunity to interact as much or as little as you want.

Trip Essentials

What we provide

Our pricing includes transport from start to end – using our 4WDs when we leave the tar seal – basic accommodation, most meals, a dedicated trip leader, local guides, entry fees, all cultural requirements, and contributions to village development funds, as well as taxes.

Your guides

We support and train people from our partner communities to guide you. The land you’re crossing is their land, their vanua, to which people in Fiji have an inalienable connection. We believe it’s only right for them to show you where they live, farm, hunt and fish.Your guides are first aid trained, and while English doesn’t always come easily to some of them, they are knowledgeable about the plants, animals, and land around you.

A word on tracks

Our routes often follow old paths between villages, pig-hunting tracks, or farm paths. These can be rough and muddy. The villages work to keep these tracks clear for you, but please don’t expect constructed walking tracks! A good level of fitness and a spirit of adventure are musts!

Transport

We arrange all transport either directly in one of our 4WDs or by using local taxis, minivans, and carriers. We see this as part of experiencing the real Fiji. If you have your own 4WD, you can join some trips under your own steam. Be prepared for a bumpy ride as we can soon leave tar-sealed roads behind! On multi-day trips we take your main bags along a different route to your destination by vehicle. There will also be transport along the way to take you short distances to the start of walks, and if you choose not to walk on any day.

Accommodation

On our multi-day treks your accommodation is provided in the villages or in locally owned and managed lodges. It can be basic, but it is always welcoming. There are flush toilets at all stopovers, and cold-water showers.

Packing List

Unsure what you’ll need? Check out our packing list. We’ll also provide you with more information about what to expect and bring before your trip. And, no need to worry about heavy loads. You only walk with your day-pack. Everything else will be waiting for you when you reach each day’s destination.

What People Say

This was by far one of the best things I have done so far in Fiji. The beauty of the interior is without words, and the time and thought spent in finding ethical and meaningful ways for people to share in that experience is wonderful. Truly great.

Tim Lafond, Australia

Loved my hiking with Talanoa Treks. Fantastic scenery, local guides with stories from the past and great company from fellow visiting hikers. Hiking through the highlands and stopping to eat and sleep at local villages was a great experience. I also learned a bit more about Fiji culture and was able to show my respect when visiting villages during the remainder of my stay in Fiji. To top it off, Talanoa Treks is also focused on sustainable development of the communities they work with to provide this unique experience. It was a good fit with my values so I’m happy to recommend them to others.

Martin Pritchard, Melbourne Australia

Had a great time, loved the Nabalesere waterfall, Stonebowl Lodge, the amazing walk and the village stay. Thanks for organising it so smoothly and accommodating our ideas. Truly a wonderful experience.

Elise Remling, Sweden
