Here is a taste of some of the Fijian locations you will see: Kioa is a small island between Vanua Levu and Taveuni, its only inhabitants living in the village of Salia. You will often see the people of Kioa paddling out in their traditional outrigger canoes to fish. Their skill in fishing is legendary, as are their handcrafted artisan items. Taveuni is known as the 'Garden 'Island of Fiji' and is Fiji's third largest island. Its volcanic topography and abundant rainfall creates many waterfalls and large tracts of native rainforest. The coastline is mostly rugged with a few nice white sand beaches along the eastern coast. The town of Somosomo on the West side of the island is home to the Tui Cakau, one of the most prominent high chiefs in all of Fiji. Tui Cakau is the paramount chief for the region known as Cakaudrove. Taveuni is also home to the rare Tagimoucia flower which can be found around Lake Tagimoucia (it blooms between September and December) located in an old volcanic crater just below Des Voeux peak. This area is also noted for Fiji's rare Orange Dove and Silktail birds he Ringgolds are a group of 6 small volcanic atolls scattered about a barrier reef within the deep sea. The water is especially clear for snorkeling and diving. Pristine white sand beaches are completely deserted. There are several nice hikes. The island of Cobia is a partially sunken volcano that can be explored by. The islands are ideal for sea kayaking and are home to a variety of bird and turtle nesting areas.

Koro Island is part of the Lomaiviti Group of islands located in the geographic center of Fiji. There are 14 villages on the island and no towns. The island is relatively cut off from outside visitors and it maintains an especially remote, pristine nature. The island is mountainous and lush, similar to Taveuni. On the northeast side of the island are some of the best beaches in all of Fiji. Inland, Koro Island is famous for a most diverse population of birds including parrots, lorikeets, doves and other tropical birds Tui Tai has multiple wins in the AON Excellence in Tourism Award for Best Adventure Product, and has been a finalist in the categories Overnight Cruising, Diving, and Environmental Tourism as well.
