Scattered about the western Pacific the six hundred islands that make up the Federated State of Micronesia are some of the most remote islands on earth.  Produced by volcanic activity these islands contain landscapes of splendid and diverse beauty. These include mountain peaks which soar over six hundred metres into the skies, ravines that plunge down to the sparkling rivers below, mangrove forests teeming with life and vast and alluring lagoons, filled with coral reefs and the wrecks of warships This is one of the best diving destinations on earth. Just above the equator the islands enjoy all year tropical conditions.

The islanders, living remotely as they do from the rest of the world, still practice ancient rituals, dances and song. They have lived here for thousands of years and the ruins of ancient cities offer insight into how they lived their lives in times past.
