Introduction, ancient mariners migrated to the distant islands of Oceania from all over the globe by wind and wave and star, bringing with them their traditions and cultures, long before Columbus ever set sail. Indonesia’s emerald archipelago offers a visual and cultural feast to the visitor. Extraordinary landscapes, from rugged mist-covered mountains to primal tropical jungles, verdant green rice terraces and mysterious lakes, dominate the interior.
Along the coast dazzling coral reefs encircle dormant volcanoes that jut dramatically out of the sea. Stretches of white sandy beach fringed with coconut palm and scattered fishing villages are flanked by dramatic limestone headlands.

Management Caraka Travelindo, Sulawesi Indonesia
Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country and one of the most culturally diverse, is sprawled across more than 17,000 islands with over 300 different ethnicities and dialects. Many travelers head straight to the Hindu island of Bali, but there is so much more to this vast country. The people, most of whom are moderate Muslims, range from modern urban professionals in Jakarta, to village farmers and fishermen on many of the islands, to Stone-Age tribal people in West Papua. A former Dutch colony that became independent in the wake of World War II, Indonesia is a land of rich cultural and religious heritage, fascinating architecture, superb beaches and diving, unique wildlife, and remote village life.

Our luxury journeys introduce you to a multi-faceted selection of remarkable people, from government leaders and top businessmen to villagers and fishermen.
