Indonesia Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago consisting of over 17,500 islands scattered across the equator. Lying between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Indonesia’s 54,000km of coastline is a watersports paradise. With secluded beaches and jungles, and a skyline dominated by cone-shaped volcanoes, the opportunities for adventure are limitless!
From cocktail swilling surfer dudes in Bali, to the tribal groups of Papua, Indonesia is home to a diverse range of people, with over 300 distinct ethnic groups populating the country. As the second most bio-diverse country in the world, Indonesia’s environment is as varied as its people. Over a third of all species are endemic, from the three-metre long Komodo dragon to Borneo’s treasured orang-utans and Sulawesi’s minute tarsiers!
With the ‘Ring of Fire’ striking directly through the archipelago, Indonesia is home to more active volcanoes than any other country in the world – one of the most famous being Krakatoa, which can be seen sometimes electrifying the night sky in Java!
With an equatorial climate, expect 70-90 per cent humidity and temperatures that rarely drop beneath 25°C. Anytime of year is good to visit, although the driest months are from June to September, with the rainy season falling between December and March.
