Your day-by-day itinerary

Swinging with the Apes

Take a walk on the wild side, trekking through dense Sumatran jungle and crossing rushing rivers to meet playful orangutans swinging between the treetops. Spend 2 days exploring Gunung Leuser National Park staying in a small hotel on the edge of the rainforest. Hike into the heart of the jungle, wobble across wooden bridges and scramble between the trees, eventually arriving at the optimum spot to witness semi-wild orangutans.

Wonders of Yogja - Java

Watch the sun rise over giant buddhas buried in the misty morning jungle at Borobudur, the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world. Wander between the stupas in the soft purples of dawn, the air thick with mysticism and a touch of magic. You’ll stay in Yogyakarta, the cultural heart of Java. Before dawn, you’ll set off to Borobudur to catch the sunrise. It really is something quite special.

Rumbling Bromo

Journey from Yogyakarta to Mount Bromo, Java’s most photogenic volcano with a perfectly-shaped cinder cone. En route, you’ll amble around the Hindu temple of Prambanan, get a taste of local life staying in a small village, hike through fertile green plantations and climb the curling scenic road to the volcanoes. Sunrise at Bromo is something quite staggering. Prepare to be knocked sideways.

Tumbling Rice Paddies of Ubud - Bali

Ubud is the bohemian centre of Bali, an atmospheric world of small artist studios, yoga schools, restaurants and cafes. Spend three nights ambling amongst the rice terraces that flow down the hills and into the valleys like rich green waterfalls. Watch daily life unfold in authentic villages, learn about coffee production and soak up the inspiring spirit of the place.

In Search of the Dragon - Komodo

Seek out giant Komodo dragons on the mystical islands of Rinca and Komodo. Following your guide, you’ll set out on foot to find the largest reptile on the planet, so keep your eyes peeled at all times. Staying on nearby Flores, you’ll take a boat trip to Komodo and Rinca, tiny islands topped with forested hills and packed with astounding wildlife.

Beaches of Southern Bali

Snooze on the sand, stroll on the beach, indulge in a spa treatment (or two) and soak up the tropical sunshine in Sanur, a southern beach with a village feel and a deliciously drowsy vibe. It’s a great place to end a busy trip to Bali, with narrow beaches, spa treatments and seafood by the bucket-load. Stretch out by the pool, take a leisurely walk along the beach and grab a cocktail at sunset. Simple.

“From the moment I first stepped off the plane, I was swept away by Indonesia’s charm and beauty- so much so, that I’ve since lost count of how many times I’ve been! It’s got beaches, cultural wonders, wildlife & warm weather. What’s not to love?”
