I’d describe the first portion of the river journey to be probably be the most challenging part as this is where most of the rapids are. I was busily taking lot’s of pictures of everyone kayaking as well as the gorgeous scenery when all of a sudden I looked up and realized I had already approached Snake Rapids and somehow got pulled into an eddy in the river which caused my kayak to veer wildly into the rapids, headed straight for the rocks where it got travel adventures anz lodged and stuck! After only a few short panicky moments with nobody left to help, I managed to get my kayak up off the rocks then quickly paddled my way through the rest of the rapids to get caught back up with the rest of the group again. Shortly thereafter, we reached Blue Point Bridge and after picking up our lost kayaker, we pulled our kayaks over to the shore for a short rest break at the picnic area where snacks and beverages were provided.

I hiked about 1-2 miles when I noticed I kept hearing water, as in perhaps waterfalls? So I decided to venture off road and down to the creek to see what was going on and to my joy and amazement, and with the help of a local hiker, I discovered a series of beautiful, cascading waterfalls that absolutely captured my breath. It was there that I decided to spend my time taking pictures, and resting, taking in the beauty, tranquility and peacefulness of this not widely published section of the trail. Total hiking distance, I’d estimate to be about 3 miles. However, if you have more time and you’re up for a longer hike, the journey to Horton Springs is well worth it. It’s a total of 8 miles round trip and the trail is rated easy to moderate in most hiking guides.

Named The River Sea by some, The Amazon river is the largest river system in the world. At some points the river exceeds 100 miles across. Over a third of all the species on Earth live in the rainforest encompassing the Amazon river, and this fact alone drives many people to visit here. Witnessing the unique wildlife that call the Amazon home is an ambition of many travelers and for good reason. You may encounter such odd animals as the Amazon River Dolphin or Black Caiman. With its sorted terrain and immense size, it’s easy to see why the Amazon river made this list. For over ten years, Fiji has been one of my favorite destinations to sell to client.
