Lying in the warmth of the South Pacific, Fiji’s islands are the stuff of dreams. Fringed by stunning beaches and clear blue water that teems with fish, with thick, jungle covered interiors: the islands of Fiji are rich with wildlife, colour and views to remember. A Fiji paragliding trip offers you the chance to fly over all of this: surely one of the most sought after views in the world.
Fiji is made up of over 300 hundred islands, although only just over 100 are inhabited, and the vast majority of the population lives on the two largest: Vanua Levu and Viti Levu. The islands are mostly volcanic, meaning their interiors are relatively hilly and rocky, creating great starting points for paragliders to fly from.
The main attraction of paragliding in Fiji is being able to soar off of the hills and over the coast. The islands are all small enough to be able to do this. If you want to get up into the mountains, you’ll need to find a local operator to take you, or hire a four-wheel-drive: these are rocky, difficult roads. The climb up them can be steep, too, but it is well worth it. It’s usually easier to stick to the two main islands, but it is possible (with the right knowledge and equipment) to get off the beaten track and fly from some of Fiji’s smaller islands. That has to be one of the world’s best ‘unspoilt’ experiences: flying from remote South Pacific islands over views to die for.
Visit Fiji between April and November for the best conditions: the rest of the year the islands can be wet. Winds are relatively gentle most of the time.
