The package includes all international flights from Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane (other capitals - poa), all meals in Vanuatu, all accommodation, all adventure activities, all domestic flights and transfers in Vanuatu.
Please note that the Optional Extension only has 8 places available so will be on a first come, first served basis.
Accommodation is twin share or couples. Single supplement is available but please contact us to discuss as single supplement reduces number of participants who can come on the trip - find a friend to come with is our suggestion!
Massages will be at your own cost and you can book them at a time of your choosing, please remember to check with us as to our daily event schedule to allow plenty of time to get back to our resorts for your massage
You will be responsible for all alcoholic drinks and your Vanuatu tourist visa (approximate cost for the visa is $60.00AUD).
International Flights are booked from Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane as these are the most regular departure points - please discuss your nearest Capital City before booking so we can discuss your best options for getting to where you need to be
We have run 30 International Advemtures and hundreds of Australian Fitness Events and there are lots of people just like you, you can share with a friend or partner, but if you come alone we'll find someone like minded (and same gender) to share your room with
We have always run our adventures on the Challenge by Choice principle - if you would rather stay at the resort and relax for the day instead of swimming with turtles, then that's perfectly ok - there is no pressure to have to do everything
Please complete the trip Enquiry form on the Booking page which will give us your contact details including your email address - and we will send you an invoice for your $1595.00 deposit - this allows us to secure our accommodation and activities nice and early.
We will send you an updated invoice when it's time to pay more - but we can be flexible, please note that once we've booked your international and domestic flights that will be non-refundable
We can arrange an Afterpay link if you would like to pay your deposit so you don't miss out!
The Vanuatu Tourist Visa costs approximately $60AUD which you will be responsible for paying - we will send you information on how to arrange this
We will keep you updated on the latest requirements around COVID-19 and any other vaccines required to enter Vanuatu, but please check with your own GP with regard to your own health situation and any advice on this - this is at your own cost
We pride ourselves on making our events achievable by just about anyone with a sense of adventure - the longest trekking day would be around 5 hours, with most treks no more than 3 hours - so we would recommend chatting with us first if you haven't been to a BANG Fitness Adventures event before, if you have then you can ask us what other events the treks etc would be similar to
We will provide a packing list closer to departure date, but apart from good quality runners/trail runners/trek boots, you can wear whatever you would normally wear to exercise, bearing in mind it's a tropical climate
Please note that it is polite for women to wear T shirts and leg coverings that come to the knees when in public, but at the resort you can wear what is comfortable to relax in. We will provide more guidance on those closer to the date
We do highly recommend a pair of reef shoes for swimming off the beaches at the resorts, coral can be quite painful if you step on it
All of our accommodation and activity providers are experienced at catering to specific dietary requirements, we will send you a booking form/health questionnaire link so that you can let us know any health/diet issues well ahead of time
You will have access to WiFi at the resorts and restaurants, and if your mobile phone plan has international roaming capability then you can have access most days, but take the opportunity to enjoy a little down time away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
We will invoice you for your total event package which will be made up of a $1595.00 deposit to secure your place and a balance amount which will be required to be finalised by 30/12/23
Please discuss any issues you may have if you think you won't be able to attend the event as planned - we will discuss your refund options based on payments already paid to suppliers in Vanuatu and airfares as to whether they can be refunded.
