Backyard Travel’s New Tour: Escape To Raja Ampat

February 19, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Backyard Travel, the online boutique travel operator specializing in insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new tour that showcases the up and coming Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat. The new Raja Ampat: Paradise Island tour brings travelers to the idyllic tropical waters of of West Papua, Indonesia, an area that boasts more than 1,500 pristine islets and coral cays, and part of the Coral Triangle, home to the richest marine biodiversity on Earth.

The new 4-day, 3-night getaway sees travelers arrive in Sorong in West Papua, then embark on an 80-minute boat trip through spectacular ocean scenery to an eco resort in the heart of Raja Ampat. At the resort, guests settle into an overwater bungalow, perched above the house reef for unbeatable water views. Geared towards relaxation, this laidback tour allows travelers to do as much or as little as they please, with three free days to fill with activities such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking and jungle and beach walks, and the option to complete a PADI dive course during their stay.

The launch of the tour coincides with the best travel season for Raja Ampat, in contrast to the rainy season currently experienced by Indonesia’s southern and western islands.

“Our new Raja Ampat tour was created to meet demand for shorter getaways, whether for short-haul markets in Asia or for long-haul travelers who pair an active tour with one that provides a few days of downtime,” says Maeve Nolan, General Manager of Backyard Travel. “We love to showcase off-the-grid destinations with detours off the tourist trail, so what better place than remote Indonesia!” 

The new Raja Ampat: Paradise Island tour from Backyard Travel is available from $998 USD per person.
