After exploring and living in remote and wild regions of the world, I decided to settle down in Indonesia.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"From adventurous outdoor to cultural and discovery trips, I can organize a custom-made journey through Indonesia. As part of your visit to this alluring country, I would definitely recommend you to explore Raja Ampat and Moluku islands onboard our traditional wooden boat. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"After my studies in sport and tourism, I started as an outdoor guide in Northern countries. I spent four years as a guide leading groups on mountain treks, kayaking between icebergs, dog sledding on frozen lakes, and snow-shoeing in the Taiga. Running a local agency and designing tours was a natural next step for me. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"While I was in North Sulawesi, for 2 days I could see the sun rising from the top of a volcano in Manado Tua, dive between pristine corals in Bunaken National park, and observe wild tarsius and black monkeys in Tangkoko National Park. I was amazed that I could experience such a diversity of activities and fauna in the same vicinity - that's why I love Indonesia!"
