First Christmas Island holidays launched for UK Market
(TRAVPR.COM)UNITED KINGDOM - August 25th, 2011 - London – August 24th, 2011 – A leading specialist tour operator is launching the first mainstream holidays to Christmas Island, the Galapagos of Australasia.
Ethos Travel, the U.K’s leading independent specialist to South East Asia has launched Europe’s first mainstream travel programme to Christmas Island with extensions to the Cocos & Keeling Islands. This Australian outpost located on Java’s doorstep is now accessible by weekly charter flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Heralded as ‘Australia’s own Galapagos’, Christmas Island’s red crab migration has been included in Sir David Attenborough’s Top 10 Wildlife Experiences of all time. Ethos Travel is now giving its clients the opportunity to witness the spectacle as millions of red land crabs carpet the island in their annual migration marching from the forested island centre to the ocean and back.
With 63% of the island protected National Park, there is far more to Christmas Island than just crabs. The island features many endemic species – including flying foxes, the gorgeous Golden Bosun and Abbott’s Booby, the largest rarest Booby in the world. There is also stunning sea life with clear, shallow waters, cave diving and 200 species of coral, and the island features on the Whaleshark migration route.
“After an exploratory visit to Christmas Island, I was taken aback by the natural beauty of this isolated gem, and the desire of the inhabitants to open up the island to eco-tourism” stated Ethos Travel’s co-founder Sam Collins, “this is not just a destination for divers and naturalists, but will appeal to all looking to escape the usual tourist traps and uncover a truly unique travel experience”.
Sample Package: Nine night packages from the UK start from £2,027 per person. This includes flights from London Heathrow, seven nights on Christmas Island and two in Kuala Lumpur, 4WD hire, airport meet and greet and an orientation tour.
