Indonesia Adventure Travel & Expeditions
The diverse and mesmerizing flora, fauna, and cultures of Indonesia make this an ideal spot for in-depth eco travel. During your Indonesia expedition, you might meet the Asmat “warriors,” a fascinating tribal people who mark your arrival with painted faces and much whooping and hollering; come face to face with the giant monitor lizard, Komodo dragons, on Rinca Island; cruise by infamous Krakatoa Island; view orphaned Sumatran orangutans at Bukit Lawang Orangutan Rehabilitation Station; meet the Sumatran Batak people and learn about their unique dress code, religious beliefs, and customs; or peruse Bali’s countless galleries and artisan workshops. Our off-the-beaten-path Indonesia adventure travel tours also include enough outdoor pursuits to leave you deliciously tired by day’s end: snorkeling over coral reefs, searching for endemic birds; walking along palm-lined beaches; diving the waters of the Raja Ampat Islands, home to some of the world’s richest reef ecosystems; and much more.
Since more water than land defines this remarkable region, your Indonesia adventure tour features travel aboard a luxurious expedition vessel—whether it be a 110-passenger ship or a 24-person live-aboard—which allows for easy navigation around West Papua or Sumatra, Indonesia’s largest island, as well as the many smaller isles that populate this enigmatic land, from Australia’s northernmost tip, Thursday Island, to Flores Island, with its picture-perfect volcanoes. Our outstanding team of leaders and lecturers will guide your Indonesia expedition, enhancing your understanding of the island groups through on-going lectures and field guiding. Allow us to immerse you in these islands of diversity on one of our fascinating Indonesia adventure tours.
The itineraries we offer vary from year to year; below please find our upcoming Indonesia adventure travel expeditions.
