Discover Raja Ampat's
Flora + Fauna
Traveling through Raja Ampat is like traveling back in time. Few tourists make the journey to its remote and untouched wilderness, which is why it is referred to as "The Last Paradise." It is a heaven for divers and snorkelers, a home to rare species of wildlife, and as beautiful on land as it is underwater. Our Adventure Trips combine scuba diving with on land activities to allow you to discover all that Raja Ampat has to offer.
Stunning white sand beaches, limestone cliffs, and dense jungles make up the more than 1,500 islands of Raja Ampat. The panorama of countless limestone karst islands can be enjoyed at Piaynemo and, the even more impressive, Wayag viewpoint. Walk along palm lined beaches while listening to nothing but waves and bird sounds. Look out across the turquoise sea to admire the mountainous landscapes of neighboring islands. Walk across the various expansive sand banks that appear at low tide. Wind your way up a river through a dense mangrove forest to access a hiking trail that leads to an epic waterfall.
Keep an eye out at night for the Spotted cuscus, a nocturnal mammal part of the marsupial family that lives in the trees. It's endemic to Papua and a small region in Northern Australia. Observe the Red Bird of Paradise or the Wilson's Bird of Paradise, a rare and beautiful species located on either Gam or Waigeo Islands.
