Tours in Indonesia
Indonesia is located on a hotspot of tectonic activity in the Pacific Ocean, with 129 resulting volcanoes, known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. Travel to the lush islands of Java and Lombok – where you’ll summit Mount Rinjani – seeing spectacular sunrises, ancient temples and wandering through local villages along the way. On holidays here, you’ll also explore the archipelago’s fascinating customs and culture. With a population of around 238 million people, it is the world’s fourth most populous country, and across its many islands Indonesia comprises distinct ethnic, linguistic and religious groups.
Indonesia holidays also offer up white palm-fringed beaches, verdant rainforests, exotic wildlife – including orang-utans – and a certain sense of Zen. You’ll come across impressive Hindu temples, stunning rice terraces – the result of more than 2000 years of cultural exchange between India and South East Asia – and Borobudur, the largest Buddhist temple in the world.
