Say Bula to the best new adventures in Fiji

If relaxing poolside, cocktail in hand is akin to boredom, Nanuku Auberge Resort has you covered.

Not only does it offer said tranquility, but also an abundance of adrenaline pumping activities for the adventure traveller too!

Located at Pacific Harbour, aka “The Adventure Capital of Fiji”, Nanuku Auberge Resort has over 50 land or sea experiences to quench even the thirstiest adrenaline enthusiast.

Some examples include:

Surfing Frigates Reef

Suitable for experienced surfers, resort guests are escorted via private boat to Frigates worldclass reef break for a full-day guided by Nanuku’s ‘Matai’ (Fiji for surf expert).

Three to Five day professional surf courses can also be booked with the local Surf Camp.

Diving cage-less with bull sharks

A once-in-a-lifetime experience; viewing massive cage-less bull sharks up close in their natural habitat.

With a team of dive masters to ensure safety, guests descend approximately 100 feet underwater to view as many as 100 sharks feeding so closely, they may even feel the wake from the shark’s tails.

Tandem sky diving

Resort guests can marvel at Fiji’s spectacular islands surrounded by pristine blue waters as well as rare aerial views of beautiful fringing coral reefs from as high as 14,000 feet in the air.

Guests aged from 7 years and above have enjoyed this safe experience with Nanuku’s professionally-certified instructors and crew.

White-water rafting

Discover some of Fiji’s most formidable and phenomenally beautiful terrain along the Upper Navua River.

Guests will raft underneath lush emerald rainforests, squeeze through soaring black volcanic walls barely five meters apart and take in not one but up to 70 waterfalls.

At a remote village, guests can stop to learn the customs and traditions of true highlanders and take part in a kava ceremony with the village chief.

In addition, Nanuku Auberge Resort offers a myriad of adventures including open-ocean spearfishing, Raka rugby training, jungle hiking, waterfall hiking, jungle hunting, off-road buggy explorations, heli-goft, jet-skiing, sand-dune boarding, moonlight prawning and so many more.
