Here be dragons! The vast archipelago of islands that make up the Indonesian Republic is home to the world’s largest lizards, formidable creatures that can grow up to four metres in length. This stunning adventure takes you into the heart of a rich wilderness that can boast not only the last of the planet’s great monitors, but endangered orangutans, timeless traditions and some of the most pristine natural landscapes on earth.
Beginning in northern Sumatra you will enjoy the opportunity to trek amongst the natural world of the orangutan, raft the foaming waters of the Bingei River and hike to the summit of one of Indonesia’s most accessible volcanoes. The landscapes around Lake Toba and Samosir Island then provide a chance for some fascinating interaction with the Batak Karo people, before you fly on to Bali and into the land of dragons.
Basing yourself around Labuan Bajo, the next few days are then spent sailing out to the islands that occupy the waters of the Komodo National Park, home to the famed giant monitors that bear its name. A unique opportunity to view a natural world that is fast disappearing, this truly is a journey of quite extraordinary majesty.
This is an example itinerary to give you an idea of what we can offer.
