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.

Having been on two Intrepid trips now to Lombok and the Galápagos Islands, I wholeheartedly recommend this organisation for providing superbly organised trips which give you a genuine glimpse into a country’s culture and beauty. As someone who has done a lot of extended independent travel, I was sceptical about going with an organised group, fearing I would just be taken to the obvious tourist spots, but as someone in a busy job, Intrepid take the leg-work away of having to do your own research. With both groups I have been with, I have met some fantastic people and made some great new friends who I am still in contact with. Somehow Intrepid seems to gather like-minded people with great attitudes about travelling.
