The Trans-Oceania is our newest long distance cycling expedition, and at almost 10,800 kilometers, the 7th of our 7 Epics. It features 2 distinct halves, beginning with a 10 week Island hopping extravaganza across Indonesia and its “sultry kaleidoscope” of cultures and contrasts. After a short flight from Timor to northern Australia, we then embark on an 8 week trans-continental spin across the Outback and along The Great Ocean Road, via Alice Springs, Adelaide and Melbourne, before finishing at the iconic Sydney Opera House.
This tour features the most rest days – 32 in all – of any of our Epic Tours, along with several inter-island ferry rides, enabling participants to immerse themselves in the intoxicating local foods and customs and sights en route. From the jungles of Sumatra to the artistic traditions of Yogyakarta, from heavenly Bali to the empty beaches of Flores, from magnificent Uluru (Ayers Rock) to the vineyards of South Australia, the Trans-Oceania most certainly is another one of the adventures of a lifetime that we offer.
*schedule and number of rest days may change by up to a week due to ferry schedules. Final confirmation in January, 2014.
