DISCOVER GAM

A bird-watcher’s dream

A jungle adventure through Raja Ampat

Part of the largest islands of Raja Ampat, Pulau Gam is a hilly land filled with beautiful, heavy jungle. Hike your way through the tropical rainforest to greet the beautiful coastline at the end. Fall in love with the ethereal landscape that is the secluded islands of Raja Ampat. Pulau Gam is not something to be missed.

Many villages are located around the island’s southern shores. With basic supplies available in village shops, you will get a feeling of more secluded island life. Disconnect from the outside world for a while and go back in touch with our roots.
