Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Your guide will be waiting to greet you at Medan Airport and will transfer you to your hotel for the first night of your trip.

  • You have a three-hour drive to your remote lodge in the jungles of Tangkahan. Surrounded by luscious rainforest the lodge is a great place to enjoy nature walks. You will start your experience with a private guided trek into the rainforest.

  • This morning you will be taken on a tour within the national park that includes both river tubing and trekking. Your afternoon will be at leisure, perhaps to enjoy another hike with one of the guides from the lodge.

  • Today you will transfer by 4x4 to your ecolodge in Bukit Lawang. This area offers one of the best opportunities to see orangutans.

  • This morning you will trek through the rainforests of Bukit Lawang National Park. Regular sightings here include orangutan, Thomas's leaf monkey (indigenous to Sumatra) and gibbon. Even if you don't meet them out in the jungle then you can see the orangutans at the morning feeding session at the rehabilitation center.

  • Today you leave the rainforest, traveling by road to Medan. The remainder of the day is free to explore Medan, or enjoying the luxury of a hot shower!

  • You will be taken to the airport for the flight to Jakarta where you will change planes and fly to Yogyakarta. On arrival you will be met and driven to your hotel which is around 30 minutes away.

  • Rise early to see the sunrise over Borobudur. Your private guide can explain the story behind each section of this incredible temple, which rivals the temples of Angkor. You will then head to the nearby rural villages for a short tour before returning to your hotel and the rest of the day is free at leisure.

  • Explore the town of Jogja today, with particular focus on the ancient Kraton.

  • Drive to Semarang on Java's north coast where you will take a flight to Pangkalan Bun on the island of Borneo. On arrival you will be met by your local guide and driven to the nearby port to meet your crew and board the deluxe 'Klotok' boat which will be your home for the next three nights. The itinerary in Kalimantan is flexible and can be discussed with your guide. Tanjung Puting is a remote national park offering the most intimate experience a traveler can have with orangutan.

  • Exploring Tanjung Puting National Park with your guide and private boat. Keep your camera to hand!

  • This morning you have a private transfer to the airport for the flight to Bali where you will be met on arrival and driven inland to Ubud which is around 90 minutes away.

  • Enjoy a memorable day today as you meet a local Balinese family who will take you to their village where you will try a cooking class in their home.
