    Adventure your way through New Zealand and Fiji’s incredible natural environments and unique Polynesian cultures!

    This program has just the right balance of adventure and environmental service in New Zealand followed by laid back island living in Fiji. In New Zealand, we’ll go mountain biking in Rotorua, raft over the world's highest commercial waterfall, stay in a sacred Maori house, and connect deeply with nature during environmental service. We will work alongside park rangers, search for the elusive kiwi bird, plant native trees, get hands on with local ecology and wildlife and camp under brilliant starry night skies. The Polynesian legacy is the development of seafaring and navigation skills and canoe technology that enabled them to voyage across the Pacific Ocean. We make the journey across the Pacific to Fiji, and immerse in authentic village life on Vatulele Island, as well as go on a thrilling inland rafting adventure. We will spend our final days soaking up the sunshine on the insta-worthy Mana Island, dropping into Cloud 9 and exploring the magnificent reefs by scuba diving and snorkeling. Highlights: • Conservation project alongside park rangers at Tawharanui Regional Park in New Zealand • Mountain bike through The Redwoods in Rotorua • White water rafting adventure over the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world • Snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding over spectacular coral reefs • Go on rafting and tubing adventures in Pacific Harbor • Experience Fiji's underwater world during an introduction to scuba diving
