SPECIALITY TOURS

WESTERN SOLS ECO TOUR 2015

This independent touring program circumnavigates New Georgia, the main island of the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, and takes you off the beaten tourist track to stay in small local lodges and village guest houses in rural areas apart from the main towns of Gizo and Munda. The itinerary brings you very close to the nature and traditional culture of this region with opportunities to explore villages, reefs, islands, rainforests and pristine beaches hardly touched by tourism. Some of the accommodation is rather Spartan but always clean and comfortable. The exuberance and warm hospitality of local guides and hosts, who only receive very small numbers of visitors, will certainly overwhelm you.
