At the end of civilization, identified by a group of islands on a map, is a vast archipelago which essentially is lost in time. These islands stretch across the Pacific Rim of fire and are known as the Solomon Islands. A world where the unusual is common place, and where nature and the islands remain untouched, virtually undeveloped and relatively unexplored. Above the surface, the beauty of the Solomon Islands is a stunning stage for history, both of the WWII and of the people.
Visiting villages offers an insight into the lives of the Solomon Islanders and their passionate faith in the spiritual world, which you see in their local carvings in many types of wood. Visitors are treated to “custom dances” a portrayal of past events and heartfelt songs. The largest in this grouping of more than 900 islands the Western Providence shares a similar make-up, featuring rugged mountains, verdant terrain, tropical rain forests and misty, crocodile infested mangrove forests, with rivers, trams and waterfalls.
