Treks and Excursions
We specialise in organising excursions into the Gunung Leuser National Park and it's surrounding villages - choose from one of our popular packages or on a pay-per-excursion basis. Alternatively, contact us to arrange a tailor-made package to suit your interests. Highlights of our packages are shown below.
We arrange jungle treks ranging in length from 3 hours to several days with a fully qualified, English speaking guide. Our jungle treks are the perfect opportunity to explore one of the world's most diverse forests, and our guides are incredibly knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the region. Most of our guests are lucky enough to see orangutans in their natural habitat, but even if you are unlucky we can still guarantee you will have the experience of a lifetime.

This one-day tour gives you an opportunity to get more acquainted with Bukit Lawang, its surrounding area, and everyday life. You will visit rice fields, local homes producing brown sugar, and the local market (on Fridays) and travel by becak (tuktuk). You can taste authentic “warung food” and ask all your questions about Indonesia. Rp 300,000 per person.
This is an amazing opportunity to visit Tangkahan (2 hr drive from Bukit Lawang) where you can help with washing elephants in the river. You can also choose to spend more time with the elephants and walk with them as they explore the forest - a fantastic opportunity to spend time with these animals without riding them . You will also have the opportunity to visit nearby hot springs and take a swim in the river. This activity must be booked in advance and is not available on Fridays.
You can opt to tube-raft back from a trek in the jungle or as a stand-alone activity. The river is perfect for tubing since it has some exciting white water where you bump over rocks and some more gentle stretches where you can enjoy the surrounding scenery. We use sturdy rafts with skilled guides at the front and back. Safe even for small children, but for kids under 5 we send a baby-sitter to tube with the child.
