Untamed. Diverse. Enchanting.

CUSTOM TRAVEL TO BORNEO

PRIVATE TRAVEL FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS

Custom isn't complicated: in fact over 70% of our travelers visit Asia on a Custom Journey. And here's the beauty, a custom trip to Borneo departs on dates of your choosing and you travel only in the company of loved ones to destinations entirely up to you. You determine the trip length and focus. The type of Borneo lodging is up to you, as are included meals. All trips are accompanied by expert private local guides and drivers, all for about the price of a group departure (or if you choose, the sky is of course the limit).

To get started, view our Borneo sample itinerary below.
