Follow in the footsteps of naturalist Alfred Wallace as you explore the Indonesian archipelago with traditional boat Katharina.

Set the sails with traditional Indonesian boat Katharina as you follow in the footsteps of naturalist Alfred Wallace – known for his theory of evolution by natural selection.

From colourful birds of paradise to inquisitive crabs, playful butterflies, comical bats and astonishing marine life. It’s little wonder why this tropical paradise left its mark on Wallace who discovered the idea of evolution whilst stranded in a hut on Ternate before sharing this with his close friend, Charles Darwin. Today, the area is very similar to the world Wallace would have uncovered and this special venture provides a unique opportunity to truly follow in his footsteps.
