A Real Nature Marathon in Indonesia: Diving, Trekking and Kayaking


Snorkelling, diving, trekking, kayaking, Indonesia offers a real marathon of Nature

Nature in Indonesia in its purest form, beauty on all four sides. Indonesia is the third country in the world with the greatest diversity of fauna and flora behind Brazil and Colombia, and one of the 17 mega diverse countries, according to UNEP-WCMC. If you thought that the only interesting activity Indonesia could offer you is the beach, then you have something new to learn about this enchanting place. Indonesia, the island country by excellence, provides numerous and varied recreational sports and activities for nature lovers, inside and outside the water.

Whether above or below the parallel of Ecuador, on either side of the Wallace Line, in the Las Célebes archipelago or in Las Molucas, in Java or in Bali, Indonesia is a natural paradise with an infinite number of amazing resources.

If you are a nature lover, we propose a real Nature Marathon in Indonesia: snorkelling, diving, kayaking and trekking, specifically in the small paradise of Raja Ampat. You will not miss a single bit of the beauty offered by this country of 17 thousand islands. Ready?

Then prepare your backpack, some good closed sandals or trekking shoes and check your diving equipment. Do not forget to put some sunscreen and a pair of binoculars in your luggage. 

We start our marathon with an excursion through our Island of Gam and surroundings, enjoying spectacular stretches on foot, combined with other tours on one of our boats. This one-day tour includes:

Visit to Kabui Bay, crystal clear waters and beautiful karst cliffs.

Urai Island, one of the epicenters of coral diversity where you can take an incredible dip in clear blue waters after a walk on the island.

El Pasaje, on the way through, a channel that separates Waigeo and Gam. Y ou can visit a place where pearls are grown.

The west of Gam zone and the island of Airborek and its village.

The Strait of Dampier, where you can see manta rays simply snorkeling. We are sure that you will love this tour.

Anyway, if you want to know more routes through Indonesia, here we recommend a specialized hiking website. 

A perfect place to enjoy with a kayak. With more than 1,500 islands, islets and cays, navigating its waters and its unexplored coasts will offer you a show you won’t see anywhere else in the world. But Indonesia also has many more options to catch the oars, for example, the Komodo National Park, where you will cross closely with its famous and endemic dragons. Another interesting point is the Asahan River, north of Sumatra, with many areas of rapid and considerable flow, and where kayaking competitions are held every year. The best time to enjoy kayaking is in the dry season, which runs from May to October.  

This country has more than 700 different species of birds and approximately 150 are endemic. At Raja Ampat Biodiversity Nature Resort we offer you some excursions to see the star of Raja Ampat, the Red Bird of Paradise; many other species can also be spotted.

And of course you can’t end your visit to Indonesia without a few diving sessions. Keep in mind that you are on one of the most impressive seabed on the planet, the Coral Triangle. Manta rays, corals of a thousand colors and shapes, Mandarin goby, hammerhead sharks or carpet sharks, turtles, seahorses, diving in Indonesia is a must. Whether you are a beginner or master diver, discover the many dive sites that we offer you in our particular paradise. You will not find anything like it.

What’s better than a good diving session in Indonesia after a day of hiking through the jungle, a few hours of kayaking around beautiful islets and an excursion after the red bird of paradise? Just enjoy a beautiful sunset at our Yenanas beach. We will wait for you. Kami sedang menunggu untuk Anda!
