First day in the Raja Ampat archipelago

Upon your arrival at Sorong Airport in West Papua, you are met by your driver and transferred to the town’s port. You will board the ferry to Waisai on Waigeo Island, Raja Ampat. Upon your arrival 2 hours later, you are met by the boatman of your guesthouse who takes you to your accommodation in a small motorboat. Finally, you have arrived in paradise. On the horizon, on a deserted island, the bungalows of a charming boutique hotel built on stilts appear. This small, simple hotel was built with great attention to detail by a foreign couple. It is located on a deserted island and provides its guests with island romance and local delicacies. You settle in and have the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 2: Raja Ampat
Visit and snorkelling in Sawandarek village

After an excellent French breakfast, depart for a snorkelling excursion near the village of Sawandarek on Mansuar Island. For years, the residents have decided to stop fishing to protect the underwater wealth of their village. The result is remarkable and makes Sawandarek one of the best snorkelling sites in Raja Ampat. You will snorkel with barracudas, giant groupers, emperors, turtles, sharks, batfish and more. Visit the village and return to the boutique hotel.

Day 4: Raja Ampat
Excursion to Batanta Waterfall and snorkelling

Batanta is one of the largest islands in Raja Ampat and has beautiful waterfalls where you can swim.

Day 5: Raja Ampat
Excursion to Kalibiru River

Today you take a trip to the magical Kalibiru River. This beautiful turquoise river glows so brightly that it looks like it has underwater lighting. Due to the natural phenomenon of water and sunlight, the small channels of the river appear very pure blue and phosphorescent. You have time for a picnic lunch and, of course, a swim in the beautiful blue. Take another walk in the great surroundings before you take your boat back to the hotel. Wow.

Full day boat tour. Boat captain and local guide included. Accommodation: boutique hotel in paradise. Meals: full board.
