Indonesian Adventure Voyage: In the Wake of Wallace
Wildland Adventures

Indonesian Adventure Voyage: In the Wake of Wallace

Alfred Russel Wallace, the ‘David Attenborough of the Victorian Era’, was the co-discoverer with Darwin of the theory of evolution by natural selection (‘survival of the fittest’). He was an extraordinary explorer and collector, a polymath, who was fêted and honored in his day yet he is largely forgotten today. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of his death, this adventure cruise follows in Wallace’s wake through some of the remotest parts of Indonesia. Sailing on beautiful hand-built phinisi schooners, this natural history tour will explore the many remote and uninhabited islands of the Raja Ampat Archipelago, Halmahera Island, and the volcanic island of Ternate. Raja Ampat is acknowledged as the richest reef area in the world; Halmahera is one of the least-known major islands in Indonesia; and Ternate is the island town which Wallace made his home base and where he wrote his ‘Letter from Ternate’ to Darwin which set in motion the world-changing publications on evolution.
