FLORES AND KOMODO ISLAND TOURS over a mind-blowing experienced tour in Flores Island. This Island is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands measuring 14,300 square kilometers, Flores is an island sanctuary lying on the chain of a volcanic mountain belt known as the ‘Ring of Fire.’ Once, Flores was just a tiny dot in the east Indonesian archipelago, until just recently when it was put on Indonesia’s tourism map. This is due to Flores’ heavily wooded, rugged, and mountainous landscape that has hindered access to the mainland’s interior up until 25 years ago. Unlike Bali – a neighboring tourist hot-spot – the island remains pretty much intact, with very little exposure to the hustle and bustle of a popular tourist destination.
This is one of the features that Flores has to offer to travelers in search of an amazing, mind-blowing experience for the soul. Get there, see, and sense Flores. Every journey along its off-the-beaten paths can be your next spectacular adventure.
Komodo Island is the most-visited attraction of Flores. Rinca island, a smaller island where the Komodo dragons can also be found, is a good alternative to crowded Komodo Island. There are in numerous tour operators both within and outside of Flores offering Komodo or Rinca tour packages. Many local guides and boat captains wait to take visitors there from Labuan Bajo. Flores abd Komodo Island Tours serve a trip to Komodo Island to see the dragons which is a totally awesome adventure as they are now no longer kept in an enclosure but free to roam and hunt for food anywhere, they please. The experienced and well-trained park rangers will take you on a hike through the bush lands of Komodo Island for the experience of a lifetime.
