Itinerary

Itinerary 8D7N

Available only during a set period from 1st October to 20th October each year this journey takes place once a year from Komodo to Ambon and starts the season for the Tiger Blue before it heads to the Banda Islands & Raja Ampat.

The itinerary is customised each year so the one below is only a sample 8 day itinerary from Sumba to Alor. This is a fabulous itinerary for anyone interested in the island cultures of Eastern Indonesia. This trip shows just how cultures can evolve so differently between small islands which are not very far apart. It is a trip for the adventurous.

This trip is great combined with a Komodo itinerary to make a long 2 weeks holiday that takes you on very diverse parts of the world.
