This eight-day journey is perfect for the nature lover who wants to experience the beauty of Borneo while trekking and cruising through it. Trek through Gunung Mulu National Park and Camp 5, checking out Deer Cave and mud volcanoes as you go. Reward yourself with some relaxation and a picnic in the rainforest. Longboats and ferries will carry you along the Melinau River to the Wind and Clearwater caves, Kuala Litut, and the tropical island of Pulau Tiga, where you can spend your time snorkelling, kayaking, or visiting Snake Island. This tour is a perfect blend of activity and relaxation; exactly how time on an island should be spent.
