Immerse yourself in New Zealand and Fiji’s incredible environments and unique cultures. Spend over two weeks of adventurous travel as we go on a road trip through both the North and South islands and enjoy the spectacularly beautiful Beachcomber and Mana Islands in Fiji.

Try mountain biking, rafting, climbing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Visit ‘The Shire’ (Lord of the Rings movie set). Explore vibrant Auckland and Wellington. Learn about New Zealand Maori history and culture. Discover the winter wonderland that is the south island of NZ as you explore the 'Adventure Capital of the World', Queenstown. Contrast this with indigenous Fijian culture. Throughout your time in New Zealand and Fiji, you'll learn an enormous amount about both countries' environmental and ecological history.
