No hotels. Just one 5-star floating base camp.
NEXT APRIL, a Zodiac-stacked expedition vessel of modest size (but luxurious appointment) will voyage where few folk can travel.
She’ll slice delicately through liquid turquoise off the north coast of PNG and West Papua, village-and-island hopping her way across a breathtakingly remote marine wilderness, and she’ll cross the Equator to visit remote Mapia Atoll. Then, over the Bird’s Head to Raja Ampat, Earth’s paradise of coral reef biodiversity.
MV Orion will show a privileged few what Nature dishes up to those not fearful of venturing off the beaten track. (She’ll show too what Serge Densereau dishes up … Bathers’ Pavilion’s renowned chef designs her menus.)
And she’ll show you … people. You’ll step day after day from your invigorating inflatable into communities with pure, unspoilt cultures. Your penultimate landfall on rarely visited Yamdena Island, Maluku, will seal the experience. 11 nights from $8,070pp twin share* Guaranteed until 30 November only
