This fantastic combo experience gives you the chance to work with local people and hop between islands on an action-packed group tour. First, cruise around the idyllic islands of Fiji and soak up some sun on the region’s best beaches and island resorts. Snorkel in the shallows, cool off in waterfalls and learn to surf on this amazing island-hopping adventure. Then, choose from two rewarding volunteer projects on the Yasawa islands. Work closely with indigenous communities and help out at a local school, or get close to colourful marine life as part of a conservation project. This is the perfect way to meet new people, mingle with locals and make a difference, while also having the time of your life in beautiful Fiji.
