Why we love this trip

  • Take a snorkelling trip from Maumere to discover the tropical life just off the Flores coast

  • Climb to see the tri-coloured lakes at sunrise, and watch the natural wonder of the crater lakes changing colour in the morning light

  • Enjoy the beautiful beaches and relaxed seaside atmosphere in Maumere and Labuan Bajo

  • Keep your eyes peeled on the lookout for prehistoric Komodo dragons on Komodo and Rinca Islands. Take 2 days out to increase your chances of seeing them on each island

Is this trip right for you?

  • There are 3 included snorkelling activity on this trip and you will need to be a confident swimmer to participate. Those who don't wish to snorkel can spend time on the boat or beach.

  • There is an included trek to Kelimutu Lakes, commencing in the dark, so good fitness and suitable footwear is required, also a head torch is recommended.

  • Some of the roads can be quite bumpy as local infrastructure development is limited. We will make stops to break up the trip and it is a good idea to read or listen to music along the way.

  • There are a number of very early mornings to make the most of our days, including a 4am start on Day 5 to see Mount Kelimutu at sunrise. Bring your alarm clock, and be prepared to catch up on sleep on the bus or boat.
