If strolling on tropical islands, snorkelling in pristine tropical waters and, revelling in the comfort of a floating boutique hotel sounds like the perfect short break – then don't miss the TRUE NORTH'S Archipelago Adventure!

This 5 night sojourn around PNG's rarely visited Louisiade Archipelago departs Cairns via private jet on the 13th of December and this year guests can also look forward to receiving expert tips from award-winning underwater photographer Darren Jew.

Darren's work has been published in magazines, newspapers and books around the world whilst the Louisiades features some of the best snorkelling and diving in Paua New Guinea. The opportunity to receive advice and tips from a highly-regarded underwater photographer in such stunning circumstance is definitely an opportunity not to be missed.

Highlights include snorkelling over WWII wrecks, swimming with manta rays, drifting amidst huge schools of trevally and, being inspired by postcard-perfect islands fringed with sparkling beaches and palm trees!
