Fiji Island Hopper Bus Tour

Enjoy the sights and scenery of a beautiful tropical island paradise as you travel around Fiji and neighbouring Mantaray Island.

Prices from US$645

The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the achingly blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences – see multicoloured Hindu temples perched next to relics of the traditional indigenous spirit houses with their lingering sense of an ancient magic.

Its irresistible shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an astonishing array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clown fish, trigger fish, blue tangs, 12 species of whales, dolphin, anemones, soft coral and much more.

Travel around the enchanting island of Viti Levu and visit the Yasawa Islands where you will explore Fiji’s magical underwater world and relax on stunning white sand beaches. On this Frontier project you will experience true Fijian culture and community life by venturing into the welcoming local villages and taking part in the Sevusevu Ceremony. There are plenty of exhilarating activities to get involved in from sand boarding, jungle trekking and water fall swimming making you never want to leave.

Fiji will enchant you with its infectious, chilled out "Fiji time" lifestyle and its heavenly beaches – the perfect paradise location for your Frontier adventure!
