Pacific Discovery


Pacific Discovery offers experiential gap year, semester and summer programmes abroad to some of the most amazing places on Earth. Their programmes are deliberate overland journeys, blending authentic immersion in diverse cultures, meaningful service-learning projects, rewarding adventures, wilderness exploration, and personal development.

Students challenge themselves in a supportive small group environment, developing empathy for other cultures; furthering understanding of international issues; heightening appreciation for the Earth’s wild places; deepening global perspectives; and discovering their own passion and purpose.

Since its inception in 2001, Pacific Discovery has taken more than 2,000 students and many faculty-led groups on experiential journeys. Pacific Discovery has undergone independent safety accreditations with Gap Year Association (USA), Year Out Group (UK), and OutdoorsMark (NZ). Their mission is to offer the world’s best experiential programmes - providing insights into our increasingly global society, developing empathy for other cultures, furthering understanding of international issues, heightening appreciation for the Earth’s wild places, and assisting you to stretch and grow.
