    Solomon Islands
    Landings subject to weather and tides
    e.g. in Nendoe, on Santa Ana Island, Ghizo Island, Pirumeri Island and Onua Island

    Solomon Islands
    The heavenly island state, made up of about 1,000 islands, will enchant adventurous spirits with its idyllic beaches and tropical rainforests. Explore the pristine islands as if you were on an expedition: with landings that are subject to both the weather and the tides and cannot be finally decided until after you arrive. On Nendoe, for example, enjoy a warm welcome from the village elder, which is traditionally accompanied by dancing. The agile Zodiacs will be put to the water so that you can reach isolated beaches on Santa Ana Island or Onua Island, for example, and spend some relaxing time on the white sand or snorkelling in the shallow waters. Time and again on these remote islands, you will encounter ancient customs handed down through the generations and see what life is like in the simple villages – perhaps on a stroll through the market on Ghizo Island or on Pirumeri Island. Come away with some thrilling impressions and perhaps one or two souvenirs, which you will find amongst the traditional island marquetry, to remind you of your extraordinary time here.

Six mighty volcanic craters form the impressive backdrop around Rabaul’s little harbour, the former capital of Papua New Guinea’s second largest island. You will see evidence of the volcanoes’ power in the houses sunk down in the ash or on a visit to the Rabaul Volcanological Observatory*. Learn more about the history of the island on a visit to the Japanese tunnel system* or the Kokopo War Museum*.
