Fiery Volcanoes & Dragons
Indonesia, intriguing and captivating, a land of magnificent islands, cultures, wildlife and dramatic landscapes
Stretching between the Asian mainland and Australia, Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world, with over 17,000 islands lying between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
Unsurprisingly, Indonesia's ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity is correspondingly great – the best estimate is of 500 languages and dialects spoken by around 200 million people.
While Bali is usually the destination most familiar to foreign visitors to enjoy the relaxed beach life, a tour with us explores the wealth of other aspects that Indonesia has to offer. Highlights include the fabulous Borobudur temple complex, built in the 8th-9th century but abandoned in the 14th century, and the still-active spectacular Mount Bromo surrounded by the Sea of Sand.
One of the most unforgettable experiences on offer is the a trek through the Komodo National Park, where along with an abundance of wildlife including deer and wild buffalo you can also glimpse the prehistoric looking Komodo Dragon.
