Level 1: For everyone*
Guests should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers, according to the weather.
Remote communities that are seldom visited by travelers do not have the tourist-related infrastructure common in bigger ports.
We’re off the beaten track, so don’t expect professional guides, tour buses, or fancy souvenir shops. This is precisely what makes these isolated settlements so charming. We will likely land at these places in small boats (RIBs), meet the representatives of the community at the landing site, and be guided by locals who are eager to show us the best of their villages.
We may enjoy a singing or dance performance, taste local food, see craft demonstrations, visit a small museum, enter a church, see the social center, or stroll through the local market. Whatever they prepare for us, it is sure to be a unique experience prepared from the bottom of their hearts.
Remarks/requirements: Guests should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers, according to the weather.
