Indonesia

Ultimate Indonesia 18 days

As the name suggests, our Ultimate Indonesia itinerary includes what we believe to be the country’s ultimate highlights and showcases the diversity of the Indonesian islands.

Beginning in Kalimantan, the Indonesian region of Borneo, spend three days cruising through the Tanjung Puting National Park on a private houseboat. This bio-diverse rainforest environment is a fantastic place to see orang-utans.

Continue onto the island of Java where it’s time for some cultural activities. Explore the ancient Buddhist temple complex of Borobudur and Hindu temples of Prambanan, before climbing Mount Bromo to witness a spectacular sunrise.

It’s a short flight from Java to the popular island of Bali, where you’ll spend three days in Ubud, the cultural heart of the island, learning about the local lifestyle.

The trip finishes with some R&R time in the Komodo National Park, where you can relax on the pristine beaches, discover the array of marine life and meet the region’s most infamous inhabitants – the Komodo dragon.

As with all our itineraries, we have created lots of free time for you to enjoy as you please. If you would prefer a more ‘complete’ travel programme, we will be happy to oblige. We can also tailor this holiday to meet your exact needs - your holiday, your way.

Highlights

  • Cruise the rivers of Tanjung Puting National Park on a houseboat, spotting for Orang-utans.
  • Learn the secrets behind production of Java’s legendary coffee.
  • Rise early to witness the sun rise over Mount Bromo and its mountainous neighbours.
  • Take a break from the beach to search out the infamous Komodo Dragon.

We only provide privately guided holidays - meaning that you will not be expected to share guides or transport for the duration of your visit. You can also start on any day you choose.
