Fiji aerial sightseeing tours offer you a great way to see the lovely Mamanuca Group of Islands. Flying overhead, you will get a bird’s eye view of the best the country has to offer.
The Fijian islands are in the South Pacific Ocean. It is an archipelago made up of 332 islands. Over 100 of these are inhabited. The Mamanuca Islands are a small cluster of islands. They are located on the west of Viti Levu.
What to See
From the helicopter, you will see the beauty of the many islands that make up the archipelago. The spectacular Mount Evans gorges can be seen. Awe inspiring waterfalls are visible from high above. Lush rainforests and reefs abound.
Rugged island volcanoes and small coral atolls are visible. The turquoise waters and coral textures can be seen when on a Fiji aerial sightseeing tour.
The country is a product of tropical waters and volcanic islands. The coral reefs presented all sorts of problems for 19th century European mariners. However, this helped the island retain its natural resources.
When the British finally came, the island natives were converted to Christianity. Even today, the values and morals are still mainly Christian. The presence of the Europeans also put an end to the tribal wars that occurred repeatedly.
Vast number of Indian laborers came to the island, so that today many are descended from them. Some Asians and Europeans also settled there.
Political turmoil has been a perennial problem since the late 1990s. However, this has not deterred tourists from visiting. Its clean hills, exquisite beaches and rainforests have made it a tourist hotspot.
The cost per person starts at 254 USD. This is for a typical flight that lasts 30 minutes. Longer flights will cost more.
Each flight allows some baggage. This ranges from 15 to 20 kg. Excess baggage is usually set on the next flight available. 24 hours before your tour begins, call the operator to reconfirm all the details.
While most of the tours focus on the Mamanuca Islands, you can also arrange tours to the Yasawa Group. If you want to go on trips to the Nausori Highlands, this can also be arranged. The best time for this would be between May and December. That is when the waterfalls gush.
The Fiji aerial sightseeing tours take place everyday from sunrise (6:30 am) to sunset (5:30 pm). The starting and end point of all tours is usually Nadi Airport.
