Bicycle

Cycling allows you to see the countryside at your own pace and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. It’s a particularly good way to explore Viti Levu, Vanua Levu (the Hibiscus Hwy) and parts of Ovalau and Taveuni.

  • With the exception of the Kings and Queens Roads, most roads, especially inland, are rough, hilly and unsealed, so mountain bikes are the best option.
  • The best time to go is the drier season (May to October); note that the eastern sides of the larger islands receive higher rainfall.
  • Bring your own bike, helmet, waterproof gear, repair kit and all other equipment. It is difficult to get bike parts in Fiji. If you wish to take a bike on a domestic flight, make sure it is demountable.
  • Drivers are not used to cyclists, and can be manic in towns or a menace on highways. Avoid riding in the evening when visibility is low. Travel light but carry plenty of water – it can be hot and dusty or humid.
  • The cheapest place to store bikes is at backpacker hostels.
  • On Viti Levu, bike hire can be arranged through Stinger Bicycle Tours in Nadi.
