Call it kismet, call it destiny but few people who fantasise about world travel are lucky enough to experience a voyage as rich, or as remote, as this. Crossing the tropics of Capricorn to Cancer, you’ll go from snorkelling in gin-clear waters and experiencing the land divers of Pentecost Island and the Fire Dancers of Baining to sailing through Alleppey’s backwaters in a houseboat. In between you’ll be treated to a Technicolor palette of red and green, wrapped up in millennia of history. The rugged rocks of Australia’s Kimberley may mean thundering waterfalls and vast, unforgiving desert yet just one sea day away lie the genteel landscapes of Asia. Discover our planet’s glorious dichotomy first hand as yellow sands give way to soaring cliffs, lush forests and forgotten temples. Bookended by tales of mythology and spirituality told by superb onboard lecturers, exploring the secrets of the world has never been so easy.
