The National Trust of Fiji administer six National Parks designated as areas of outstanding national beauty. Our pick of the National Parks and other hiking trails include:

Koroyanitu National Park, Nadi Area, Viti Levu
This National Park offers several day and overnight walks, a visitor centre, scenic lodge accommodation and camping. There's a lovely circular trail that leads into the rainforest, through Banyan Tree forests to a high waterfall and returns along the open the grassy ridges of the surrounding hills with views of four waterfalls and the sea in the far distance. Highly recommended.

Sigatoka Sandunes National Park, Viti Levu
This 4-mile stretch of large windswept sandunes along the coast is a protected environment administered by the National Trust of Fiji. The park has a very informative visitor centre about the history and ecology of the region. There are several official trails to explore the sandunes which often expose ancient pottery shards.

Colo-i-Suva Forest Reserve, Suva, Viti Levu
Offers 6km of trails through rainforest less than 20 minutes drive from Suva. The area has several small waterfalls, indigenous flora, bird life, scenic lookouts. However, a note of caution: being close to Suva, the park is a hot spot for crime and a recent case of rape has further scarred the name of the park. Buses go beyond Colo-i-Suva into the heart of Naitasiri. Naitasiri is a stunning region, very traditional with lots of thatch villages and small family plantations. Naitasiri and neighbouring Namosi are the best regions in Fiji to explore the experience the "old" Fiji. Bad weather is common and roads are frequently flooded. This is traditional countryside and although accessible to tourists, village protocol should be observed - before exploring present yaqona to the local chief and ask his permission - you will be encouraged to take a local villager with you as a guide.

Bouma National Park, Taveuni, Northern Islands
In the beautiful Garden Island of Taveuni this park offers three separate hikes - Tavoro Waterfalls, Lavena Coastal Walk and Vidawa Rainforest Hike, all excellent. Tavoro Waterfalls is a well maintained trail leading to three waterfalls. The first waterfall is a 5-minute flat stroll from the main road. The second and third falls are thirty minute hikes up steep slopes crossing rivers. The Lavena Coastal Walk is much tamer and follows the flat coastline for an hour with lovely views before heading inland through tropical forest to a beautiful swimming waterfall. There is also a rough trail to Lake Tagimaucia, home of the rare Tagimaucia flower that comes out in abundance between October and December, although this arduous trek takes a full day hacking through steep rainforest - guide essential.

Nausori Highlands, Nadi Area, Viti Levu
This inland rural area is an impressive collection of rolling hills, river valleys and volcanic peaks. The highlands also offer fantastic views over the Mamanuca and southern Yasawa Islands to the west. The hills transform from sunburnt grassland to lush green valleys during the wet season from December to April.

Waya Island, Yasawa Islands
The scenic trails meandering along the hilly island of Waya offers some of the most scenic walks in Fiji. What makes these walks so special are the dramatic open views along the high coastal ridges. The island lacks trees and is covered in knee high grass. Not good for hay fever sufferers but for those who enjoy panoramic views of dramatic coastlines, this is the one for you.

Lovoni Trail, Ovalau, Lomaiviti Group
The tropical mountains behind Levuka on Ovalau have some excellent trails through thick rainforest to waterfalls and swimming pools. The beauty here is that they can all be reached from the road a short walk from the historic town of Levuka. Of notable interest for hikers is an arduous day trek to remarkable Lovoni Village, isolated in the centre of the island.
