There’s choosing a travel destination, and then there’s choosing how you get there. Time to take those travels off the beaten track with Star Clippers which will take you off the beaten track in each one of their itineraries. Here are five to whet your appetite in Asia and Europe.

Westbound Bali-Bali

A few years ago, Star Clippers embarked on its maiden voyage to Indonesia. Now, it’s time to explore the very best Indonesia has to offer with Star Clippers Westbound Bali-Bali journey.

Start the journey in Benoa, surrounded by coffee plantations, rice terraces, and even a bat cave exploration for those who like adventure. From Benoa, step aboard your Star Clipper tall ship for some R&R while sailing to the peaceful fishing villages of Giligenteng Island. Everyone has experienced ‘white sandy beaches’ but at Lovina Beach in the north of Bali you’ll experience the volcanic black sand that lines the shoreline. Dance the night away on Lombok’s Senggigi beach before heading toward the coral reefs and turquoise waters of Gili Sudak. Undoubtedly, one of the island’s most iconic landmarks is Mount Bromo – a 2,329-metre volcano which forms part of the Tengger Semeru National Park and offers unparalleled natural beauty. A hiking tour up the side of the mountain and around the 6-mile wide inner caldera will take your breath away.

Borneo Westbound

 Surround yourself with the art, music and intense sunsets found on the island of Borneo.
Begin your journey in Kota Kinabalu. Explore the Kinabalu National Park and its towering Mount Kinabalu which stands at 13,400 feet. From Kota Kinabalu head to Tiga Island for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. Be sure to visit the island’s famous therapeutic volcanic mud mask. Across three days, visit the golden dome Omar Ali Salifuddien Mosque, the caves and waterfalls of Niah National Park and jungle-trek on Bintulu. After spending a day aboard your elegant tall ship, explore the cultural hub that is the Malaysian waterfront city of Kuching. Finish your journey in the bustling metropolis that is Singapore.

Croatia & Montenegro

Explore the Mediterranean paradise of Croatia and Montenegro aboard your  Royal Clipper tall ship.

Begin your journey one of Italy’s most beautiful cities, Venice. This city of islands is full of beauty and romance. Take to the canals in a gondola, explore the historic sites and get lost in the art galleries of Venice. From Venice, head to the terracotta city of Dubrovnik. The brilliant contrast between the burnt orange rooves and the azure ocean give the city a romantic renaissance feel. Walk along the walls to take in the beauty of Dubrovnik. Before exploring more of Croatia, detour to the medieval city of Kotor in Montenegro. Learn about the Roman history of one of the prettiest towns in Europe. Visit Croatia’s Korcula, the hometown of Marco Polo before heading back to Venice.

Malta, Balearics & Spain

From Malaga to Malta, the Star Flyer explores the very best of this Mediterranean region.

Wander through Malaga’s fortress palace, marvel at the Moorish architecture and visit Alhambra Palace in Grenada before boarding your Star Flyer vessel and setting sail for Almeria. Tucked away at the foot of a mountain range, this Spanish city is a testament to the astonishing architecture and design of the region’s churches and mosques. Head to Ibiza and Mahon in the Balearic Islands, for beaches, Georgian buildings and excellent gin. On the way to Malta, stop in at Caligari in Sardinia. This is one of the most beautiful cities in Sardinia. Malta’s sister island Gozo is perfect for diving. Explore the coral reefs, shipwrecks and caves before finishing the journey in the walled city of Valletta, Malta. This 16th century city is an artistic hub and historical delight. The perfect end to any journey is a day spent wandering the museums, churches, palaces and gardens across Valletta.
