Highlights

  • Island Hopping by Jet: Quicker than sailing, arguably the best way to explore the far-flung islands of this island-nation is by private jet. Travel to remote lands, unhindered.
  • Wild Papua: This anthropologically-rich area, with access granted to a limited amount of visitors, is an adventure into some of the last wild tribal lands of Asia.
  • Raja Ampat: The exceptional diversity of marine life and warmth and clarity of water makes Raja Ampat one of the best diving destinations in the world.
