Browse Our Sumatra Tours

Wild and wonderful, Sumatra is an island for naturalists, animal lovers and thrill seekers. The terrain here is a mixture of virgin rainforest, smoking volcanoes and idyllic beaches, all bound by the crystal-clear waters of the sea. And while Java and Bali may get the lion’s share of visitors, Sumatra remains a largely unexplored and untouched island where orangutans still dwell in the wild and elephants bathe in jungle rivers. On our tailored Sumatra tours, you’ll finally find free reign for your inner explorer.

Our trip was amazing! We had a fantastic time. We were really impressed by the thoughtfulness of the itinerary you put together, especially how memorable just about every restaurant was. And everything went incredibly smoothly. Cika is a wonderful guide, and was full of fascinating commentary. We loved both hotels we were in. We also appreciated that you guys were willing to adjust some things on the fly, as we kinda overscheduled ourselves and needed to take a few more breaks than anticipated.

Good travel experience & great job to Olivia Novi in Bali for my group of 70pax. Our half day afternoon tour to Ayun Taman Temple and Tanah Lot as well as royal dinner was customised to our timing and hotel pick up location. Pat on the back to Olivia for helping to me arrange 2-way transport and seafood dinner at Jimbaran on a last minute request. thank you so much for your effort and patience with Me and my team.

yes we thought the trip was good, accommodation great also. outings seemed well organised – we were a bit disappointed with the guide we had as he did not provide much local information however the other guides on Komodo & Rinca islands & also the forest/lake village guide in day 4 were excellent

The experience on Java was good (4 stars) but on Flores it was poor (1 star). On Java we have appreciated hotels, places and tour guide. It was a very nice holiday but on Flores (Labuan Bajo) our hotel (Sylvia Resort) was dirty with bathroom in open area, stained towels, poor furniture. Moreover we faced different problems during the two-day boat trip…

What’s Special about Sumatra?

Sumatra is home to amazing natural wonders: the largest volcanic lake in the world and the last of the wild orangutan. Whether you choose to trek through dense, virgin jungle or stargaze from Pulau Samosir, Sumatra is truly one of the world’s most special places.

AMAZING LANDSCAPES

WILDLIFE

The chance to spot rare and intriguing animals in the wild is one of the biggest draws to Sumatra. Here, you’ll see some of the last Sumatran orangutans living in the wild, and if you’re very lucky, you may even spot a wild rhinoceros!

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

The proof is in the World Heritage designation: UNESCO has found Sumatra’s rainforest so valuable that it has been listed as a World Heritage Site. You can enter some of this intriguing environment at one of three national parks.

MELTING POT

Sumatra has a lot to offer culturally as well. With its proud indigenous cultures as well as Christians, Muslims and immigrants, Sumatra is home to a rich tapestry of customs and traditions.

ENTERTAINMENT

While the jungles, beaches, volcanoes and wildlife are what bring visitors to Sumatra, the island’s urban centers (especially Medan, the country’s third-largest city) also offer laid-back pubs, cafes, museums and other venues for entertainment.

CLIMATE

Sumatra’s equatorial, tropical climate makes most days hot and humid. While temperatures tend to hover between 20 and 30 degrees C (70 to 85 degrees F), the island sees its wettest season from November to February.
