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.

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.
