A Man Standing In Front Of A Waterfall

Finding Eden


Activities 3 minute read

Fiji is a nation made up of over three hundred islands, two thirds of which are uninhabited, making it one of the world’s last pockets of tropical wilderness.

An Island Surrounded By Water

COMO Laucala Island in the northeastern Koro Sea is one of its best examples of endemic diversity and unspoilt nature — a natural abundance you can enjoy on guided hikes with our Activities Director, Gordon Wakeham. 

Gordon has worked on COMO Laucala Island for twelve years. A native Fijian, it has taken nearly all that time for him to explore every inch of the vast 3,500-acre Eden, which is teeming with primaeval hardwood forest, rare plants and jewel-bright birds. Gordon is a specialist on local medicinal plants and the natural healing system. 

Each route ventures beyond the island’s only habitation, past twisting mangroves, up to secret look-out points, over black basalt rock, and through thick jungle. Along the way, you’ll learn about local Fijian folklore, indigenous plants and some of the world’s rarest bird species.
