Immersive adventure in remote archipelagos

A region lost to time and enveloped in lore, the remote archipelagos we explore are true paradises both on Earth and below the surface of their translucent waters. While sailing through channels dotted with small, uninhabited islands we can hop into Zodiacs or kayaks to have a palm-lined white-sand beach to ourselves or dive among creatures ranging from pygmy seahorses to giant clams. Spotting Komodo dragons or red birds of paradise in their natural habits are awe-inspiring moments that will not be soon forgotten. Heartily welcomed by friendly villagers, we learn about life in places where locals race water buffaloes and don’t use paper currency. Add in the more cosmopolitan delights of Singapore and Bali and the pull of this far-flung region becomes impossible to ignore.

It’s great to just wander around the island villages where the people are so welcoming and friendly and take time to show us their way of life.
