Borneo Collage

  • Experience the magical island of Borneo with an adrenaline-filled multi-sport adventure.
  • Visit the largest and one of the longest caves in the world. Put on a headlamp and do some "wild"' caving in caves a "tourist" never sees.
  • Trek to the top of the tallest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea.
This multi-sport adventure explores the remote areas of the almost mythical island of Borneo. Land of headhunters in the past, this is also an island full of amazing peaks, white water rivers, the largest caves in the world, and slow moving jungle streams. In addition to exploring the largest caves in the world, we will don headlamps and repelling ropes to do some real "wild" caving in untrod caves. There is trekking to the summit of Mt. Kinabalu, the tallest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea, as well as hiking the "Headhunters Trail" in the jungles of Mulu National Park. On the water we kayak a placid jungle river to see a variety of bird life as well as raft white water class III rapids. In the jungle we explore the high canopy on a "canopy walkway". We will stay with various clans of Iban tribespeople. Once notorious headhunters, you will still see skulls hanging in their "headhouses". Fortunately, this practice has stopped, but plenty of the old ways remain. There is no other trip like this in Borneo or perhaps anywhere!
