All of our expeditions are completely tailored to your needs – if you’re undecided about where to go, just call us, we love sharing ideas. The world really is your oyster!

Expedition

  • Experience a very different culture

    Indonesia is a melting pot of religions and cultures including Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism & Confucianism. Despite this diversity Indonesian societies are open and tolerant, and visitors will note the inclusiveness and friendliness of the people. Celebrations and festivals are very important, along with traditional arts and a love of spicy, savoury food.

  • Explore a new landscape

    Much of Indonesia is still wild and remote and offers incredible trekking options, including challenging volcanoes and remote jungle trails leading to hidden lakes and waterfalls. Snorkel among Indonesia’s abundant coral reefs for a chance to experience amazing marine life.

  • Be part of a global community

    Participate in a community-based project and gain a real understanding of local culture. Help to develop the infrastructure of a rural village by repairing houses or building community forest shelters. Alternatively get involved in a conservation initiative aimed at recycling plastic waste.

  • Learn something important

    Indonesia is developing rapidly, and this has had a huge impact on the country’s natural resources. Learn about the threats to marine and land habitats resulting from overfishing, deforestation and pollution and the conservation efforts that are being introduced to protect the environment.

What to expect

  • Terrain

    Travelling across Indonesia is an opportunity to experience a wonderfully dramatic and diverse landscape, ranging from volcanic peaks, lush jungle, pristine beaches and rich coral reefs.

  • Weather

    Indonesia has a tropical climate with consistently high temperatures year-round, except at higher elevations. The main variable is in rainfall, with April to October being the dryer season in most areas.

  • Culture

    Comprising over 200 ethnic groups, the population of Indonesia is as diverse as its landscapes. Each island has a unique mixture of peoples, cultures and traditions and the range of experiences on offer are hard to beat.

We’re always happy to talk travel and would love to find out more about your ideas.
