Indonesia is a nation of extremes with a diverse choice of experiences and encounters set amid some truly awe-inspiring scenery. Comprised of over 17,000 islands and stretched across the equator for thousands of kilometres, Indonesia’s landscape is as varied as its friendly and often curious people.
Delve into Java, the most populous island in the group, home to the cultural and creative pulse of the island at Yogyakarta, the fabulous and ancient temples of Borobudur and Prambanan and the lunar-like landscape surrounding the still active volcano of Gunung Bromo. Explore the rugged, wildlife-rich jungle terrain of Kalimantan with its healthy population of orangutan and indigenous birdlife or seek out elephants and tigers in Sumatra’s Gunung Leuser National Park. Journey east to meet Varanus Komodoensis, the legendary Komodo dragon and discover the colourful Kelimutu crater lakes on the sleepy island of Flores before taking to the seas to enjoy the excellent snorkelling and diving in Komodo National Park.
From volcanoes to rice paddies, turquoise-blue seas to tribal villages, ancient temple sites to bustling cities, Indonesia is a destination with something for everyone.
