Get to know Indonesia from another – more varied – perspective on a dazzling 14-day escapade from Jakarta to Ubud. Discover both the current capital and cultural capital in Jakarta and Yogyakarta, hike up Mt Bromo for epic views over the countryside, meander through the lush jungles of Seloliman Nature Reserve in search of local wildlife, and cross the ditch to the north coast of Bali, with plenty of time to chill out on the sandy shores of Permuteran. This journey takes you from city to coast, jungle to market and temple to mountain, so take the plunge and get to know some of Indonesia’s hotspots in a more authentic way.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Embark on a cycling trip through the backcountry of Yogyakarta. A world of flower-studded fields and smiling locals, this cultural centre is one of South East Asia’s standout destinations.
  • Take a guided walk through the jungle and rice paddies of Seloliman Nature Reserve, then sit back, relax and soak up the ambience under the stars as a small group.
  • Climbing Mt Bromo in the early hours of the morning is an adventure to remember. If the conditions are right, you'll be rewarded with a dazzling view over mist-laden volcanoes.
  • Get behind the scenes of some of Java's fascinating local industries – from coffee, cocoa and palm sugar to traditional Javanese medicine of jamu.
  • Balance out all of the activity and adventure with plenty of time to chill out away from the crowds at beachside paradise of Pemuteran on Bali’s less-visited north coast.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Coral Triangle Center Foundation. Donations help expand their coral restoration project and support their educational outreach activities for local schools in Nusa Penida.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Java is one of the largest islands in Indonesia, and this trip covers a lot of ground. Travel times can be long, and delays are common. Where suitable, you'll travel by train instead of drive, which will make the journey more comfortable. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • It's important not to make your bags too heavy, as you will be expected to carry them onto and off trains, and walk them short distances. Porters are available in most stations at an extra charge.
  • This trip involves a fair amount of hiking and cycling. A moderate level of fitness will help you to get the most out of this trip. Please ensure you bring sturdy walking shoes and comfortable clothes.
  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments. Dress standards in Java are more conservative than in other areas of Indonesia. Show your respect by covering your knees and shoulders when visiting temples. It's a great idea to bring your own sarong, or purchase one on your way.
  • Accommodation at Seloliman Nature Reserve and near Mt Bromo is in basic guesthouses. Set on the edge of a tropical forest the Seloliman Reserve embraces philosophies of environmental education, and we are sure you will get a good night’s sleep.

Excellent trip with a lot a variety in what we did and saw along the route. Ari (Corry Aritona), our leader, always went the extra mile to ensure the trip went smoothly and we had everything we needed. Make sure you go to his private view point of Mount Bromo it’s much better than at the top!

Truly exceptional trip, even for someone like me, who is used to self-organising and travelling solo. I really appreciated that Ari was super-flexible to accomodate individual preferences and styles of travelling, including my dietary requirements. The trip itself was a wonderful mix of cities and countryside, history and hiking, pictouresque train journeys and lots and lots of unique local flavours and personal touches, which is what really made it worth the money spent to my mind - there were many experiences we had that I could never organise on my own. Indonesia is a fascinating country and there's so much more to it than just Bali! Highly reccomend to anyone ready to discover this often overlooked country!

Es war eine tolle Erfahrung - für mich das erste Mal eine solche Gruppentour zu buchen. Ich hab wahnsinnig tolle Menschen kennengelernt. Die Route war super, die Inhalte hätte ich alleine (ohne viel Recherche - da ich Öl würde hatte) nicht geschafft & niemals entdeckt. Das war echt eine tolle persönliche Erfahrung für mich.
