One Week Adventures

It's the middle of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. The days are short. The weather is foul. You're still at work. How bad could life get? There is hope! If you can manage 1 week away (that's right just 1 week) we can guarantee that we can recharge your batteries and offer you something that you won't be able to stop talking about.

The following are 5 adventures that are remote, beautiful and engaging. They range from fairly difficult mountain treks to laid back wildlife adventures and something in between. So take a few minutes to look what you can do next week or next month and then start to write that vacation notice to your boss.

6 Day Sea Kayaking around the Komodo Islands

The Komodo Islands is an area lost in time. Just paddling out into the area, one gets a sense of its' prehistoric nature. This thought is galvanised when you take a trek on Rinca Island to observe the Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat. These 150kg monitor lizards are enormous and also a little disgusting. We will see many of them lounging about but don't let them fool you, they are fast when they smell blood. 

While people come to the Komodo Islands for the Dragons, most people leave raving about the sea life. Below the surface is a whole new world full of coral and fish life. This is a special place, caught between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the Komodo National Park has some of the greatest biodiversity on the planet. This 6 day adventure Bali to Bali is sure to recharge your batteries.

Camping in the Komodo Islands

Swimming with Humpback Whales

Each year, Humpback Whales migrate north from the Southern Ocean towards warmer waters to breed and calve. One of their favourite places is Tonga. What a great choice! Palm-fringed beaches, warm clear water, remote and beautiful. We think Humpback Whales have excellent taste in destinations. As such you can come and see these amazing animals in the wild. You will even have the chance to swim with them, mothers with calf. This is a mind-blowing nature-based experience. And at the end of the day, we head back to our wonderful resort for a great meal and an even better sleep.

 

This is an 8 day adventure Sydney to Sydney

Trek to PNG Highest Peak - Mt Wilhelm 4509m

There is so much more to PNG than the Kokoda Track. It has some of the most amazing mountain ranges and one such is the highest in the country - Mt Wilhelm at 4509m above sea level. This amazing trek will have you back home in 7 days. In that time you will fly to PNG, trek to the summit of Mt Wilhelm (where it has been known to snow), trek back down through remote villages and then back home. This is not an adventure for the faint-hearted. At that altitude the air temperature can be a freezing: -15C: but the views are spectacular.

If you are fit and ready to go we can run this trip with a minimum of 2 people any day of the week. Trekking season, of course, is April to October. 

Few have heard of Mt Wilhelm but when you go, it is a place you will never forget.
