Travel by train, road and boat from Central Java to Bali on our exciting new 2-week Indonesia tour. Our fascinating, varied and original Java Overland tour takes you on a 2-week tour by road, rail, and boat through Central and East Java to finish at a charming eco-lodge in a little-visited corner of the island of Bali.

Additional Information

Beginning in delightful Yogyakarta Town, we’ll travel through emerald paddy-fields, lush forests, coffee plantations and past towering volcanoes, traditional villages and ancient UNESCO temples. We’ll visit the fun and friendly towns of Yogyakarta, Solo and Malang with their ancient Dutch colonial period architecture, colourful markets and vibrant street life, and of course, delicious street food.A few of the many varied highlights on our Java tour.

Overland tour includes:

  • Dawn at awe-inspiring Borobudur – a 9th-century Buddhist temple
  • A dusk trip to another World Heritage site, Prambanan Temple
  • An early morning jeep ride through an active caldera to watch the sunrise over Mount Bromo
  • Hiking through the misty valleys of the mysterious Dieng Plateau: a walk through Malang’s amazing labyrinthine "Rainbow Village'
  • A day’s exploration on foot, by boat and by jeep of the remote and rarely visited Alas Purwo National Park.

As with our other tours, the emphasis is on combining both the famous and off the beaten track sites, while staying in smaller. boutique and eco-style hotels, sampling the superb, authentic local cuisine and meeting plenty of the island’s fantastically friendly inhabitants. 

We’ll finish the tour in Bali, which, along with its convenient flight connections, offers the opportunity for a variety of beach or island extensions. An optional 4-day/3-night tour of the capital Jakarta is available before joining the tour in Yogyakarta, (see the Extensions page for details). Also note that, while we deliberately avoided any attempt to cover the vast archipelago in a 2-week trip – as we’re convinced Java alone holds enough varied and fascinating sites – options to any other part of Indonesia can be arranged on request.
