Join YPT for an essential adventure for all country collectors. We visit three of the 10 least visited countries in the world, as well as the 15th least visited one: the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, and the Solomon Islands. These destinations are all unique, beautiful and in vintage YPT style, very off the beaten track.
You can also extend your Least Visited countries tour to include 3 more countries!
Our trip starts in the US pseudo-colony of the Marshall Islands, where we check out the capital before checking out the beautiful island of Eneko, which was linked to a fraudulent micronation in the 90’s.
After that, we head to Nauru where we will spend the next 5 days not only celebrating New Year, but exploring every last inch of the 3rd smallest country in the world. Nauru has recently been made famous by the Australian detention centre, and the continued presence of refugees and YPT get right to the heart of this, with us not only being guided by an asylum seeker but also getting lots of chances to discuss the contemporary situation with them. Nauru is at the heart of the migrant crisis, and our trip gives us a real understanding of it.
Following this, we’ll have two nights and three days in Kiribati, one of the most beautiful and interesting countries in the world. Something that is evident as soon as the plane makes its initial descent. Kiribati was one of the fiercest places for fighting during World War 2, and the shipwrecks, pillboxes, gun turrets, old hospitals and a whole host of other WW2 stuff making a great day tour, before we do a day on an island.
We then finish our trip at the 15th least visited country in the world – the Solomon Islands, which lies next to Papua New Guinea but is thankfully much safer. We stay at the Honiara Hotel, which has been visited by the Queen, Prince William, and Princess Kate. Here we enjoy a great day tour and some wreck diving.
These are some of the hardest to reach, and most untouched places in the world, with our group tour offering amazing savings on if you did it by yourself.
There’s off the beaten track, and there’s doing New Year on the least visited country on the planet.
