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 Puyung, Tetebatu and Senaru gives you an insight into local customs and culture, and of course the delicious local food!
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.

Intrepid is a great way blend the "touristy" things with genuine local experiences. The small group size allows you to get to know other travelers and your guide very well. The included activities are great, offering a bit of everything like eating, listening, seeing, and doing. A nice level of activitiy. I appreciated that my tour managed to include several different destinations without feeling like my time was wasted traveling from point to point. The itinerary managed the time nicely.

I was skeptical of booking a group trip at first but I was blown away by Intrepid! This is an off the beaten path itinerary but still very comfortable. Indonesia is a magical place and we would have never gotten the experience we did without Intrepid's insight. Highly recommend!
