How Much Does an Expedition Cost? 🌏 🇫🇯 🌴
Think Pacific is a UK Social Enterprise and a Fijian Charity With Ethical Project Fees

We pride ourselves on the delivery of a safe, structured and personally supported experience.  Your expedition fee includes your food, accommodation, in-country travel, resort briefings, R&R, weekend activities, emergency support and your expedition leader team living with you 24/7.  Expeditions also fund the work of the Think Pacific Foundation (Fijian charity FJ 989) enabling us to support thousands of youths annually to ensure sustainability of the aims.

Since 2009, volunteers have been joining our expeditions from around the globe, supported by our offices in Fiji and the UK. Here’s our prices in some commonly requested currencies;

Registration Fee

£195 GBP / $345 AUD

This secures your place in the team. It also provides personal support from your project co-ordinator, full access to our pre-departure resources, live online preparation webinars and your expedition t-shirt. Your registration fee is additional to your project fee.

Project Fee

16 Day – £1400 GBP / $2450 AUD

1 Month – £1950 GBP / $3350 AUD

2 Months – £3100 GBP / $5400 AUD

Many students access university funding or fundraise this entire amount, it’s up to you whether you fundraise or not but your project fee is due 60 days before project begins. Over 1/3 of your fee supports the long term charity aims in Fiji and ensures the sustainability of the initiatives we implement.

Investing in Fijian Communities

Crucial to our projects and wider mission, is that your fee funds the year-round work of our registered Fijian charity, Think Pacific Foundation (FJ989).  Our charity focuses upon capacity building and training of local people, which leads to sustainable outcomes of the Fiji National Development Plan.  This includes providing training, funding internships, supporting local empowerment and job creation for Fijian youths and furthering advocacy surrounding messages of public health, mental health, sports development and enterprise at rural community level.  We believe that the most effective and sustainable outcomes can only be achieved by investing in the skills, knowledge and personal development of local people, especially youths, so they may contribute effectively to local decision making processes and be the leaders of change in their communities.

Learn All About Our Fijian Charity
Unique Insight, Adventure and Exploration

We combine structured projects with unique cultural experience and exploration. Each expedition includes learning about local customs and skills, adventurous activities and time to relax at beautiful island resorts alongside your projects. You will work as a team to achieve a variety of sustainable development aims during the week and you will spend your evenings and weekends immersing in Fijian life and enjoying all excitement and life changing memories of traditional Fijian life.
