This holiday season, Canadian warm weather seekers can visit Santa in the South Pacific as they trade in a traditional ‘white Christmas’ and cold winter for the pristine white sand beaches and serene waters of the island nation of Fiji. Starting November 25, Canadians can replace their winter blues with the warmth of the ‘Bula’ spirit by way of Fiji Airways, which recently announced new direct flight service from Vancouver to Nadi, Fiji.
With an easy 11-hour nonstop flight from Vancouver to Nadi Intl’ Airport, Canadian travelers can be assured that the warm embrace of a South Pacific getaway is just the ticket for a long-awaited family getaway and holiday escape.
For those in search of a refreshing escape far from the maddening crowds that offer one-of-a-kind immersive experiences, look no further than a luxury all-inclusive holiday at VOMO Island Fiji & Wakaya Club & Spa.
