Epi's Midland Tour, hike to Lovoni - Ovalau, Fiji Islands

  Lovoni Village

Lovoni, on the Island of Ovalau is one part of the Fii Islands where history has had a chance to be made - from the days when the first settlers arrived, through the de facto reign of King Cakobau, to the first Colonial Administration. Levuka was the first capital of The Fiji Islands - Lovoni was the first village on Ovalau.

 With the leadership of myself, Epi, You will trek through pristine rainforest to the heart of Ovalau - to the village of Lovoni, situated within a volcanic crater. Throughout the trek I will explain and you can sample, jungle medicines and bush food, as well as enjoying the magnificent natural beauty of the surrounding area.

 After the trek cool off with a refreshing Lovoni River
swim in the clear river. At Lovoni, after presenting a Sevusevu to the chief of the village, you will enjoy a lunch of traditional Fijian food & drink served by my family. I will also explain the history of Fiji, Ovalau and Lovoni, along with the famous legend of the strong , fierce warfare encountered 
by the blood thirsty warriors of Lovoni. This elaborate history encompasses; trickery, torture, intimidation and slavery, until the final rebirth of my proud people. After a tour around the village transport is provided

Comments from previous guests: 

The tour with Epi to Lovoni Village was the cultural highlight of our Visit to Fiji. Really great! Epi is a very knowledgeable guide . Lunch in a Fijian home, meeting with the chief of Lovoni and a swim makes this tour a must.

Do not miss the Lovoni hike with Epi. You will be treated as a guest and not as a tourist.
