Join YPT on an essential adventure for all country collectors. We visit all 11 Pacific island countries, 5 of the 15 least-visited countries in the world including the third, Tuvalu, and the first, Nauru!
YPT’s Least Visited Countries tour is now in its third year and we’ve established plenty of local contacts with insider knowledge so we can take you to some places you won’t find in any travel guide
We start our tour in Palau, an independent country in free association with the United States, and explore its World War Two history, island culture and make the most out of some of the best waters the planet has to offer with options to dive, snorkel, kayak and even swim in the infamous Jellyfish Lake! We’ll head on to Pohnpei, the main island of the Federated States of Micronesia for Christmas Day and another country ticked off the list, while we also check out Japanese war remnants and local markets.
We continue in the Marshall Islands – nominally an independent country but arguably a pseudo-colony of the US – where we check out the capital and visit the beautiful island of Eneko, which was linked to a fraudulent micronation in the 1990s.
After that, we head to Nauru where we will spend the next 5 days not only celebrating New Year’s Eve, but exploring every last inch of the third-smallest – and least-visited – country in the world.
Following this, we’ll have two nights and three days in Kiribati, scene of one of the fiercest battles of World War 2, and check out the shipwrecks, pillboxes and gun turrets. We’ll also sample the local moonshine, made of fermented palm tree sap.
Continuing our trip to the fifteenth least visited country in the world – the Solomon Islands, which lies next to Papua New Guinea, and then Vanuatu, an archipelago and relatively new country, having been granted independence from the French and British in 1980. After that it’s Fiji and a stop in its main tourist town, before heading to our main destination – Tuvalu, the third least-visited country in the world.
Following that we tick off countries 9-11, with specially chartered flights to Samoa and Tonga to round off the whole set.
These are some of the hardest-to-reach and most untouched places in the world, with our group tour offering amazing savings as opposed to doing it by yourself!

ATTENTION – Since we are changing plane in Guam and Guam is USA territory, we need to go through US Immigration even though we are staying in the airport. This means that you will need either need a Guam-Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Visa Waiver (given on arrival to citizens of Australia, New Zealand, UK, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore), an ESTA (given online if you are eligible) or a visa-free entry (Canadians and Americans). If you are not eligible for any of those, you will need a visa for the USA (either tourist or transit) to transit in Guam.
