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

Set the sails with Katharina and guides, Ray and Angela as you follow in the footsteps of naturalist Alfred Wallace – known for his theory of evolution by natural selection.
