ROUGH AND READY

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

The dis­tances in­volved alone make it dif­fi­cult to see the South Pa­cific on a bud­get. But if you want to glimpse the re­gion via a slug of back­packer spirit, if not cost, then there is always “Desert Is­land Sur­vival in French Poly­ne­sia” – an in­trigu­ing pos­si­bil­ity sold by Re­spon­si­ble Travel (01273 823700; re­spon­si­ble­travel. com) which ma­roons its par­tic­i­pants on an un­in­hab­ited is­land and asks them to stay there for 10 days, hap­pily with ex­pert guides who can teach them how to make a fire, catch fish and ex­tract drink­ing water from the sea. From US$3,600 (£2,733) a head; flights ex­tra.
