Frontiers Travel and Ciclismo Classico featured in LA Times

The Sunday Travel section of the Los Angeles Times includes adventure travel trips by Frontiers Travel and Ciclismo Classico.

Frontiers is offering a luxury tour next February called “Indonesian Interlude.” Mollie Fitzgerald, co-owner of Frontiers, will lead the trip alongside Tarquin Millington-Drake. The tour is a lengthy one, spanning Feb. 9 through Feb. 27, 2012, and includes exploration of Java, Bali and Borneo. Some of the highlights of this wildlife- and culture-based tour include luxury hotel stays in Singapore and Indonesia, special cultural visits, a 10-night cruise to experience Borneo, and orangutan encounters. Orangutans are unique to Asia and verging on extinction. There may only be about 50,000 remaining. Dr. Birute Galdikas, who founded Camp Leakey and is featured in a new movie, “Born to be Wild,” will lead Frontiers’ guests among the orangutans. For more information on this trip, check out the detailed itinerary.
