After an approximate 30-minute scenic drive, you will arrive at the village where you will be met by your hosts and escorted to the village hall for a traditional welcome ceremony before you trek up to the waterfall. There will be a few stops enroute where your guides explain about the plantation including it's kava, tapioca, taro, bananas and papayas. They will also show and demonstrate the many uses of medicinal herbs that are still practiced in rural villages like Urata. Enjoy a swim in the three fresh water natural pools at different levels to refresh your body and soul after the 40-minute trek. After the swim, return for a guided tour around the village and experience some cultural interactive activities like basket and mat weaving. At the end of the tour, enjoy refreshments (green coconut, assorted tropical fruit, cakes and chilled water) and you'll have the opportunity to purchase locally woven handicrafts before returning to the pier.
Please note: Guests are kindly asked to dress conservatively and mindfully of the Fijian culture, by avoiding wearing vests, skimpy tops, swim wear, short pants for ladies, and hats during the village tour. Please bring bottled water from the ship. Bring along your camera for photos and cash to purchase souvenirs. Those wishing to swim, please wear your swimwear and bring a beach towel from the ship.
