As the least visited country on earth you will find fairly scant information about travel to Nauru. In fact, there are no indigenous agencies currently offering tours to Nauru, and very few international companies that specialize in travel to Nauru. Once again, we aim for a YPT first.
In 2017 we ran our first ever “Least Visited Countries Tour”, which involved us spending 5 days, inclusive of New Years Eve in Nauru, something we will be keeping as a yearly part of the YPT schedule. We are also now pleased to announce that we can offer independent tours to Nauru.
Why visit Nauru?
From a traditional tourist perspective, there is not that much to attract people to Nauru, bar the fishing (which is excellent), but for our brave Pioneers we know that the fact that it is the least visited country in the world makes it cool enough ☺
Nauru is also home to some fabulous WW2 relics, you can walk around the country in a mere few hours, and as home to the controversial Australian refugee problem, is a contemporary hotspot of amazing interest.

Hotels in Nauru
Menen Hotel – The most famous hotel in Nauru, boasting a great restaurant, one of the best bars/clubs and a saltwater swimming pool. We actually spent our new years eve here. $80-120 per room
Budapest Hotel – The newest, most expensive, and cleanest hotel on the island. The location here is not great, and you will require transport, or a driver. The Budapest Hotel can provide invitation letters for Australian residents. $150-300 per room.
Od’n Aiwo – The third hotel in Nauru, and the lowest quality of rooms. There is a Chinese restaurant connected to it, and a bar (that currently doesn’t serve any booze).
There are rumours of a 4th hotel to open soon, near the beachfront, which we shall be monitoring!

For most nationalities, we can easily arrange a visa to Nauru, which we get pre-approved and you can print prior to your trip.
For citizens of and residents of Australia and New Zealand, we will need a local partner to provide a letter of invitation, which may affect the choice of hotel we need to use.
