    Solomon Islands (Nendoe, Santa Ana Island, Langalanga, Onua Island, Pirumeri Island)

    Solomon Islands: a South Seas insider’s tip

    If you want to uncover the secrets of the hidden Solomon Islands and enjoy their exotic charms, you will be in your element on board the BREMEN. This is a destination for passionate explorers that is ideal for your expedition ship and the Zodiacs. Visit untouched beaches and look forward to encounters with mysterious cultures. But you will also experience the hospitality of the inhabitants when you are greeted off Nendoe by the village elder and allow yourself to be swept away by traditional dancing. On a Zodiac landing on picturesque Santa Ana Island, you will witness an impressive welcome ritual by the “warriors” of the village of Ghupuna, brandishing their spears. Be inspired by the genuine nature of the people. New terrain lies ahead when the BREMEN makes for Langalanga for the first time. On your Zodiac landing on the fine sandy beach, marvel at the mussels that are traditionally used as a form of payment here. Something money cannot buy is a relaxing spell of bathing and snorkelling in the shallow, azure-blue waters of Onua Island. The colourful dancing and religious songs on tiny Pirumeri Island will immerse you in the lives of the islanders and leave you wishing this explorer’s dream would never end.

    Papua New Guinea (Rabaul, Kavieng, Garove Island , Kopar , Wewak)

    Papua New Guinea: playing with fire

    Spread across more than 600 islands, Papua New Guinea has the untamed power of fire to thank for many of its beautiful facets. In the Bismarck Archipelago, Rabaul is a spectacular sight from the moment you approach the harbour: the small town is surrounded by six volcanoes – some of them still active – that send mystical clouds of smoke into the blue sky. Gain insights into the history of Rabaul* by visiting the volcano observatory, among other things. Your discoveries continue when the BREMEN sets sail for Kavieng, which lies on the north cape of the island of New Ireland in the middle of the current area between the open Pacific and the Bismarck Sea. A diverse underwater world has developed here that attracts diving enthusiasts every year. You will also be impressed by Garove Island, a premiere destination for the BREMEN. The volcanic island is surrounded by a huge caldera that was flooded by the ocean. Gigantic walls up to 300 m high rise up around you. Your thrilling experiences continue on a Zodiac ride on the Sepik River to Kopar. Lateral canals will allow you to explore the lush vegetation and dense forests. You will also be enchanted by vibrant performances by local dance groups. Deepen your insights into the lives of the people: on an excursion on traditional buses, you will get some impressions of Wewak*, the unspoilt coastal city whose inhabitants live off farming and fishing.

    Indonesia (Port Numbay, Pulau Aibai)

    Indonesia: the realm of huge monitor lizards

    The BREMEN is ideal for exploring the world’s largest island state. In the shallow waters along the coast, which is lined with islands, it can take full advantage of its manoeuvrability and shallow draught. This will allow you to reach Port Numbay, for example, where you where you immerse yourself in the local city life or take a boat trip to the landscape and Lake Sentani *. For the first time, the BREMEN will visit the idyllic island of Pulau Aibai, whose secluded beach and crystal-clear water invite you to swim and snorkel.

Weighty impressions of a magical expedition that you will remember for years to come.
