Prepare to be dazzled by incredible Indonesia

Far from ‘just another island getaway’, Indonesia is in many ways a whole world of its own, a sprawling constellation of distinct islands offering a staggering breadth of experiences. This immersive combo trip begins way out in Indonesia’s wild west – on the island of Sumatra – and travels east through Java and into Bali, giving a superb overview of the country’s diversity. Move effortlessly from Christian Batak to Hinduism to Buddhism, remote jungle to untouched beach to volcano-studded valley, culture-rich urban village to streetside warung to ancient temple complex. For lovers of South East Asian adventure, this is a journey not to be missed.

Why you’ll love this trip

  • Gunung Leuser National Park is your best chance in all of Indonesia to see orangutans in the wild. This diverse ecosystem also harbours some 300 bird species and the endangered Sumatran tiger
  • The excellent Bukit Lawang Eco Lodge provides a unique jungle experience, and by staying there you support the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme
  • Climb the Sibayak Volcano, enjoy a picnic at its spectacular summit, then head to local hot springs for some well-earned rest and relaxation after the descent
  • Explore Lake Toba and the villages on Samosir Island. Check out Indonesia’s highest waterfall and a take a cultural tour that includes a traditional Batak dance performance
  • Yogyakarta is one of South-East Asia’s standout spots, and a cycling trip takes you through its backcountry, a world of flower-studded fields and smiling locals
  • Take a guided walk through the jungle and rice paddies of Seloliman Nature Reserve, then sit back, relax and soak up the ambience under the stars
  • Climbing Mt Bromo in the early hours of the morning is an adventure to remember. If the conditions are right, you’ll be rewarded with a dazzling sunset over mist-laden volcanoes
  • Get behind the scenes of some of Java’s fascinating local industries – from coffee, cocoa and palm sugar to traditional Javanese medicine
  • There’s plenty of time to chill out at beautiful Pemuteran by the beach
