Highlights of Sumatra Adventure Tour


  • Indonesia

Now's the time to explore Sumatra on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. Head into the depths of the jungle to spot orangutans in their home, sit in awe at the world's largest volcano lake at Lake Toba, and dip into local flavours from your beachside hotel in Padang. This trip mixes just enough must-sees and free time to keep you seeing every highlight (and more!) in Sumatra.


Bliss out beachside on the Indian Ocean, trek in the jungle of national parks, chill out on Lake Toba, get active in Bukittinggi

Emergency Fund

Please also make sure you have access to at least an additional USD $250 (or equivalent) as an 'emergency' fund, to be used when circumstances outside our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!

Solo Travellers

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi
share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Spending Money

Every traveller is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping and tipping. Please also remember the following specific recommendations when planning your trip.

What to Take

You will be on the move a good deal, so pack as lightly as possible (try to stay under 10 kg /22lb). It is in your own interest as you are expected to carry your own luggage, though distances are never great. Most travellers carry their luggage in a pack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice. Suitcases are not recommended for G Adventures travellers! Travellers will need a day pack to carry water and a camera for day walks and day trips in both national parks and at the lake.
