Your Dream Vacation is Here

Savaiian Tours - South Coast Tour

Savaiian Tours is a quality Tour Operation run by The Savaiian Hotel which is located just 10 minutes from the Ferry Terminal. The easiest way to take these tours from Upolu is to have your hotel arrange a taxi for you to the ferry terminal at Mulifanua, for the early departure at 8.00 am to Salelologa, where your guide will meet you when you come off the ferry with a sign board and your name.
This tour takes you firstly to the Salelologa Market where you will find col-ourful scenes with Lavalava’s (Pareu’s), carvings and Kava Bowls, Fruit, vegetables for sale at better pricing than on Upolu.
The tour then heads off down the South Coast, viewing the places of interest en route—both historical and geographical.
We visit the Taga blowholes which with the heavy sea swells pushing up against the coast, create magnificent water spouts through the Lava Tubes in the formations there. Some of these spouts can be as high as 60 metres.
We also stop to view Tapa cloth or “Siapo” making in a village and the ladies will take you trough the whole process of Tapa Making by pounding the bark of the tree through to the finished product.
Next stop will be at freshwater springs and then to Afua’au Falls which flow into a series of pools where you can swim. Following this lunch will be provided.
After a rest here it is back to your Hotel or the wharf.
