Ultimate Indonesian road trip with breathtaking experiences.
This is the ultimate Indonesian road trip, packed with the kind of quirky, breathtaking experiences you won't find anywhere else. Picture this: cruising through Flores with a local host, you'll stop at villages known for their 'spider web' rice fields and meet farmers who'll show you their unique cultivation techniques. You'll explore traditional homes, meet a local king, and even stumble upon a beach where jet-black sand is scattered with mesmerizing blue stones. Of course, the highlight is hiking to the colorful crater lakes of Kelimutu volcano – a sight so unreal, you'll pinch yourself.What to expect:Agriculture with a twist: Explore villages like Melo and Cancar, where local farmers have perfected some truly unique agricultural practices.Iconic spider web fields: See their iconic "spider web" rice fields, a centuries-old method of fairly dividing the land when whole fields were too expensive for a single family – creating a sight found nowhere else on Earth!A step back in time: Visit the villages of Bena and Boawae, where traditional houses and a glimpse of the local king's home take you centuries back.Otherworldly nature: Nangapenda Beach will blow your mind – think black sand dotted with intensely blue stones.Volcanoes and vibrant lakes: Hike Kelimutu Hill to witness a breathtaking sunrise. The three vibrantly colored crater lakes are known to change hues depending on the conditions.Important Tips:Entrance fees may apply at some sites. It's best to carry some local currency.There's little hiking on this trip, except for a 30-40 minute easy hike at Kelimutu. Be prepared with comfortable walking shoes.

Hi, we're taking a cruise from Labuan Bajo on 29 March. We'd like to do your 4D3N trip just before the cruise and we'd like to end the trip in Labuan Bajo. Our pick up time for the cruise is 9 AM on 29 March. If we start your trip on 26 March, will it be enough time to do the whole itinerary? Or should we book your trip one day earlier - on 25 March? Please let us know, Patryk and Anna
