Tour Plan

1 Transport to Bukit Lawang

Upon arrival at Kuala Namu International Airport in Medan you will be picked up by your private driver. The drive to Bukit Lawang takes about 4 hours and takes you along rubber and palm oil plantations, lush jungles and mountain landscapes. You can stop on the way for photo stops or lunch breaks. Our driver will help you communicate with the locals.

Accommodation examples: Indra Valley Inn, Sam’s Bungalow

2 Jungle Trekking

Today we go on a 2-day jungle tour and with a little luck you can see orangutans in the wild. Our guides are licensed by the national park office and have years of experience in jungle trekking. There are two guides available for the day. You will be picked up from your accommodation at 9 a.m. and then walk into the jungle together. The hike lasts about 6 hours including breaks for photos and food.

In the afternoon you reach the camp near a river. You can jump into the water or just relax. Our cook will prepare an Indonesian dinner for you (vegetarian options possible). You will sleep in a semi-open shelter surrounded by the sounds of the river and jungle.

Alternative: If you don’t want to spend the night in the jungle, you can do only a 1-day trek and do more activities in Bukit Lawang the next day.

3 Jungle Trekking

After waking up, our cook will provide you with coffee, tea and breakfast. You can jump back into the fresh water of the river. Depending on the campsite we will then continue the jungle adventure and trek for about 2 hours or we will go to a waterfall where you can swim and relax. You can also just relax in the camp. After lunch we leave the camp for the traditional jungle raft.

The afternoon is free. Accommodation in Bukit Lawang.

4 Drive to Berastagi

In the morning you will be picked up by our driver. The journey to Berastagi takes about 4 hours, depending on the traffic. However, you can take a break as you wish. After arrival you can visit a local market or relax.

Accommodation examples: Brastagi Cottage, Klang Ulu, Mountain View Guesthouse

5 Volcano hike and drive to Lake Toba

After a good breakfast you can climb the volcano Sibayak or visit the Hot Springs or the traditional village Lingga. Then continue south to Lake Toba, the largest crater lake in the world. On the way you can stop for photo stops, e.g. at the Sisipiso waterfall. The trip takes about 4 hours. You drive to the harbour, from where you take the ferry to Tuktuk to the island of Samosir. The crossing takes about 30 minutes. You will be dropped at the hotel. The evening is at your free disposal.

Accommodation examples: Tabo Cottages

6 Lake Toba

You will explore the island of Samosir and Lake Toba with your driver. You drive to Ambarita, Samosir’s most interesting village of the local Batak culture. From there we continue to Simanindo, where you can see the performance of a traditional Batak dance. Afterwards you drive on to a beautiful lookout from where you can see Samosir Island and Lake Toba.

7 Transport to Medan

Your 7 day Sumatra tour comes to an end. Our driver will bring you back to Medan Airport. The journey takes about 4 hours.
