This is a truly unique expedition where we paddle our sea kayaks to some of the most remote beaches on earth, drifting over magnificent coral reefs, accessing little-visited coves and visit the only islands on Earth still inhabited by dragons, the famous Komodo dragon.

When is the best time to visit?
The hands down best time of the year to visit Indonesia is between May and September, when the days are dry and sunny. That being said, it stays warm and comfortable during the wet season as well, when you should expect intense downpours that last a few hours but clear up pretty quickly.
Where to go in Indonesia?
As tempting as it is to spend the entire trip relaxing in Bali, there’s so much more to Indonesia than beaches and spa treatments. Visit active and dormant volcanoes, such as Mt. Bromo in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, or paddle through the Komodo National Park, home of the world famous Komodo Dragons. You will inevitably travel in and out of Indonesia via Jakarta, and other cultural destinations to explore include Yogyakarta, Tana Toraja, and the Baliem Valley.
How many days do I need?
Indonesia is best experienced at a slower pace. Let yourself enjoy the beaches and other natural scenery, and maybe even visit a spa or two. Try to reserve at least a week to really savor this country.
On this six-day tour of Java, Indonesia, you'll see some of the most magnificent sights the island has to offer. Enjoy unforgettable sunrises over volcanoes and ancient temples, learn about rural life on visits to traditional villages, and explore the fascinating city of Yogyakarta. You'll hike up a volcanic crater, go on a classic train ride through the countryside, and roam around Buddhist and Hindu archaeological wonders along the way.
Explore lush landscapes, meet amazing wildlife, and encounter fascinating cultures on this week-long whirlwind tour of North Sumatra. You'll go from the city to the rainforest, where you'll play with elephants and observe orangutans in their natural environment. Spend the second half of your trip on the volcanic Lake Toba and Samosir Island, where you'll learn about ethnic Batak history and traditions.
This family-friendly week-long itinerary highlights Indonesia's North Sulawesi Island and combines cultural exploration with adventure. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you begin your trip in Manado, working your way through the region and on to Tangkoko National Park, before exploring Bunaken Island off the coast of Manado. You will hike still-active volcanoes, paddle down rapids to waterfalls, observe endemic Sulawesi wildlife, and snorkel thriving coral reefs.
Spend eight days amid the sweeping Tongokan roofs of South Sulawesi with this itinerary. You'll spend most of your time in Tana Toraja, an area known for maintaining many of its historic traditions amidst a backdrop of rice terraces, limestone cliffs, bamboo groves, and mountains. Then make your way south to the floating villages of Lake Tempe and beaches of Bira before you depart.
Explore the culture, countryside, and coastline of the "Island of the Gods" with this eight-day itinerary. Drive around the southeastern corner of the island through rice fields, temples, villages, the Monkey Forest, a volcanic caldera, and more before ending your trip on the beach.

My Bali trip has been a dream. Beautiful island, warm and friendly local people, rich culture. Our local specialist Ayu had been so wonderful throughout the consultation and booking process.

Java , Indonesia - Jan 16 - Jan 16, 2019
Our guide Tony and driver Daniel were fabulous. They took care of everything we needed and wanted. For example we had never had the opportunity to taste durian. Daniel knew a particular fruit stand that sold the best. He drove us through heavy traffic to find it. Tony made sure the fruit vendor sold us a tree ripened fruit. It was a very interesting taste. They recommended restaurants for us to try and took us there to compare menus. One evening we went to see the classical dance. It was... read more
Java trip, Indonesia - Nov 18 - Nov 24, 2018
The trip was AMAZING! So great to see and explore so much of east Java in such a short amount of time; Plateau Ijen, Mt. Bromo, Yojakarta, Borobudur and more :) The landscape is breathtaking (especially the sunrise over Mt Bromo) and I found myself time and time again in awe of the lush green surroundings.
A few things to call out - 1) underestimated the amount of time you spend traveling from one spot to another due to bad traffic, a lot of time spent in a car, and 2) the travel agency was... read more
