Sprawling across the equator for nearly 5,000 kilometres, the 17,000 islands of Indonesia form one of the most evocative countries on earth. On this fascinating 27-Day Hosted Expedition, (limited to 8 participants) travellers visit the exotic islands of Java, Sulawesi, Bali, Lombok and Komodo, exploring their azure waters, slumbering volcanoes, towering temples, lush tropical forests and untouched coastal marine habitats.
The expedition is designed exclusively for discerning travellers who are seeking a seamless and luxurious journey, filled with intellectual experiences and rich in insider experiences.
We pride ourselves on demanding only the highest calibre of service delivery, and have carefully crafted tours that include only the most outstanding accommodation partners, avoid the well-beaten path taken by traditional tour operators, and showcase a side of Indonesia you're not likely to discover on your own.
