Gap Year in Fiji

Fiji lives up to high expectations in every way – you’ll want to see every one of its 300 islands before your time is done. The warm, clear waters of the Pacific are irresistible to divers and snorkellers. A cosmopolitan jumble of cultures and ethnicities, Fijians celebrate hard and eat well. Choose to spend your time working in Fiji, or just include it in your RTW ticket, and you won’t regret it.


Take your PADI exams, coach cricket, or work on a UNESCO site in gorgeous Fiji – the opportunities are varied. Fiji affords plenty of leisure opportunities after a hard week’s work.
