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 believe in responsible tourism and work in partnership with the communities you visit to reduce the impact and maximise the benefits of your trip. Your guides, accommodation and food are provided by the communities, supported by us. We believe your adventure should be great for you, and great for the communities!
We actively try and avoid being overly touristy. We aim to provide an escape from Fiji’s beautiful beaches 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.
There’s always more that we can do to be sustainable, both environmentally and culturally, and we welcome feedback and ideas for how we can improve.

Book your adventure
We run scheduled trips throughout the year – join as an individual or with friends and family. Explore each of our trips and book directly online by credit card or view our calendar and get in touch via our enquiry form or on email.
Personalised guiding, private groups, and educational itineraries
We can run many of our itineraries on a tailored basis at a time that suits you. We generally need a minimum of three people to ensure a trip happens. We can also work with our partners in the Sustainable Tourism Collective and on the Suncoast to create personalised itineraries for private or educational groups, and connect you to local experts to help your group meet its learning objectives.
Our hikes are set up for independent-minded travellers, but if you’re renting your own vehicle and just want to have one of our guides accompany you, this is also possible for some of our trips.
Just send us an enquiry and we’ll see what we can do! If we’re booked out, we’re always happy to provide alternative recommendations.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
