Explore Tortel

Remote communities seldom visited by travellers don’t have the typical tourist-related infrastructure common in bigger ports.  We may get the chance to enjoy a singing or dance performance, a taste of local food, or a craft demonstration, visit a small museum, enter a church, see the social centre, or stroll through the local market. Whatever they prepare for us, be sure that it will be a unique experience prepared from the bottom of their hearts.
