9-Day Expedition to Explore Hidden Treasures of Flores Island

Prepare yourself for a thrilling 9-day tour in the less-travelled parts of Indonesia. Explore the Komodo National Park, where you’ll encounter Komodo dragons and immerse yourself in the wonders of Flores, uncovering hidden gems rarely seen by tourists. Get ready to go on a once-in-a-lifetime journey as you set off on a kayaking expedition, gliding through crystal-clear waters, and discovering the secrets of a secluded island paradise.

Venturing into the heart of Flores, you’ll be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience at a unique beachside eco-camp offering an off-the-grid adventure while making a direct and meaningful impact on the local community. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the Wae Rebo village, a traditional village in the caldera of an extinct volcano, where we’ll reside in traditional clan houses, witnessing a way of life that has endured for centuries.
