Expedition phases

Your students choose activities from any of the following phases:


Explore the sand dunes of Viti Levu

5 days

The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is one of the highlights of the island of Viti Levu, and  one of its most impressive natural landscapes.

5 days

Your group takes several walks on and around the dunes, which stretch out over 5km long, 1km wide and rise to an average height of 20m. You are accompanied by an experienced National Trust Park Ranger who can explain why the sand dunes have formed here and teach you about the indigenous flora and fauna. The rangers will also update you on the fantastic conservation programmes they are working on to preserve the natural environment.

Fiji snorkeling
Rest & Relaxation

Snorkelling on the Coral Coast

Make your way to Pacific Harbour, known locally as the adventure capital of Fiji, and explore some of the magical coral reefs by organising a snorkelling excursion with the team at Freedive Fiji.


Tackle the summit of Mt Batilamu

5 days

Treks in the Koroyanitu National Heritage Park begin from the quaint Abaca (pronounced A-ba-tha) Village.

5 days

Completing the short 2-3 hour loop trail takes you into the local rainforest before returning to Abaca. Then over the coming days make your way from Abaca Village up to the summit of Mt Batilamu. You can choose to spend one evening here before descending the other side of the mountain and continuing your trek through the rainforest to the villages of Nalesutale and Navilawa.

In-Country Agent 

Henry has been the World Challenge In-Country Agent since 2013.

He is very passionate about helping those less fortunate than himself, so he especially enjoys being part of the project phase of each expedition.


Languages spoken: English is the official language although native dialects such as Fijian and Fiji Hindi are also widely spoken.

Time zone: GMT +12

Interesting fact: Fiji is home to over 4,000 square miles of coral reef, including the Great Astrolabe Reef


Project in Fiji

Spend some time in a traditional village soaking up the customs and traditions that are an integral part of Fijian life. The Fijian people are known for their hospitality and encourage you to get involved in all sorts of village activities including cooking, planting and gathering crops, and learning Fijian dances.

Rest & Relaxation

Relax in the tropical island paradise of the Mamanuca Islands

Grab your swimsuit! It's time to head to the golden sandy beaches and dazzling turquoise waters of the Mamanuca Islands. These offer an array of exciting watersports and are famous as the home of Tom Hanks while filming 'Cast Away' in 2000. You can visit one or two of the islands (such as South Sea Island) located only 1-2 hours by boat from the coast of Nadi. This is a perfect opportunity to relax on the beach, work on your tan, go for a swim and do a bit of snorkelling.

Fiji is a hotbed of adventure where you can experience everything from remote mountain trekking to relaxing on the beaches of the beautiful south coast. There's so many exciting places to go, delicious local dishes to try and fascinating cultural facts to learn. You're in for a sunny and adventurous expedition!
