Visit Indonesia's tropical playground of Lombok Island
Immerse yourself in the amazing scenery, rich culture and incredible diversity of Indonesia's tropical Lombok island. Get off the beaten track as you spend time in rural villages, take a variety of transportation, meet lots of locals and discover the fascinating Sasak culture. From chilling out in beachside Sanur and the tranquil hill retreat of Tetebatu, to savouring views of the highly revered Mt Rinjani and relaxing on the magical Gili Islands, once you travel to Indonesia, you won't ever want to leave!
Lombok and the Gili Islands are less frequented than their Balinese neighbour, yet offer beautiful mountain scenery and pristine beaches
Visiting the villages around Tetebatu and Senaru gives you an insight into local customs and culture
Stay on the East Coast of Lombok in an area off the tourist trail. Take a snorkelling trip in the coral reef just a short trip off the coast and enjoy lunch on a secluded island.
Finish up on the beautiful Gili Air, and enjoy free time to spend as you see fit before a final seafood BBQ.
Walking in the villages of Tetebatu and Senaru is on relatively flat ground; however, the terrain between villages and in the hills can be steep and, at times, slippery or muddy. On our waterfall walk from Senaru you will need to walk though a running stream. Footwear with good grip that can get wet is ideal.
The snorkelling trip off the East coast of Lombok is a great chance to witness the sealife, but bear in mind you'll need to be a confident swimmer.
Our accommodation on the East Coast of Lombok is remote, and away from the main town. Our simple bungalows and beachside location allow a great chance to unwind and enjoy the slow pace in this beautiful location.
Lombok is more conservative than Bali, so it's best to dress conservatively while you're there, particularly in smaller towns and during village walks.

Lombok is an amazing place, but you should be prepared to respect their local culture by dressing relatively modestly in the more traditional villages. Other than that, it's very easy to get around and if you have any doubts, your guide will help you figure out everything you need to know.

This trip has a bit of everything. An insight into the life and culture of Lombok. Plenty of interaction with local people, great snorkelling, time to relax at the end of the trip on Gili. Take a couple of extra days to explore Bali before or after the trip. Sanur is a great area to stay. Cycling down from Mount Batur is an excellent insight into the real Bali and suitable for anyone who can stay upright on a bike. Climbing the mountain before sunrise is a great experience for fit people.
