Our Treks and Excursions

Jungle Treks

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.

Tube Rafting

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.  From €15 per person (based on a minimum of 2 people).
