Ha'apai 11-Day ClassicIncludes KayakingIncludes CampingIncludes AccommodationIncludes some MealsIncludes a Farewell DinnerIncludes SnorkellingIncludes Walking

Our longest expedition, the Ha'apai Classic remains our flagship adventure tour in this very special Conservation Area. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we paddle the length of the Lifuka Archipelago. Our base camp at the southernmost uninhabited island of Uanukuhahake is about as remote as one can get in Tonga! Even the ubiquitous coconut tree struggles to survive in this wild, windswept environment. Though nothing stops the nesting green turtle's annual return. Includes 2 nights' accommodation pre-/post-kayak tour.
