Port: Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji
Duration: 3 Hours

Enjoy a 30 minute scenic drive along the edge of Savusavu Bay passing the industrial area and Balaga Bay, (proposed site for the new wharf), to Urata Village (pronounced ‘oo rartar’) where you will be met by warriors who will escort you to the village meeting house to first meet the chief who will welcome you and grant permission to go to the waterfall.

Join the village guides who will take you on an easy 30 minute trek through the village plantations and rainforest to the waterfall and swimming holes. Enroute the guides will point out the different types of food crops growing in the plantations and explain the traditional use of herbal medicinal plants. Relax at the end of the trek in the shade of the rainforest and cool off in the icy cold fresh water pools then take a leisurely stroll back to the village where you will be entertained with singing and dancing by the villagers while waiting for your bus to return to the ship.

Please note: Guests are kindly asked to dress conservatively and mindfully of the Fijian culture, by avoiding wearing vests, skimpy tops, swim wear, short pants for ladies, and hats during the village tour. Please bring bottled water from the ship. Bring along your camera for photos and cash to purchase souvenirs. Those wishing to swim, please wear your swimwear and bring a beach towel from the ship.
