HIGHLIGHTS
  • Immerse yourself in the daily life of a traditional Dayak tribe
  • Explore the jungle and spot wildlife
  • Partake in a "Hornbill Dancing Party" and stay in a traditional Dayak longhouse
  • Explore the rivers of Kalimantan on a wooden Klotok houseboat
This 5-day excursion will take you deep into Kalimantan, to explore the otherworldly secrets and biodiversity of one of the world's last true wilderness locations. By combining jungle treks, journeys to the interior on a lazy wooden houseboat and staying with the Dayak in their traditional longhouses, this trip provides you with an in-depth look at the fascinating traditions and proud cultural heritage of one of Indonesia's most storied and unique peoples; the Dayak tribe.

Kalimantan - The world's second largest island is home to steamy jungles which are 130 million years old (70 million years older than the Amazon Rainforest) and cover two-thirds of the land. In addition to the famous orangutan, there are more than 220 species of mammals and more than 400 bird species endemic to the island; making it a superb destination for rainforest exploration.

One of the best places to see Kalimantan's incredible biodiversity is Tanjung Puting National Park -an area of 416,040 hectares of primary forest, peat swamps, mangroves and coastal beach forest.

The island of Kalimantan also hosts a blend of cultures as rich as the biodiversity that surrounds them. The indigenous people of Kalimantan are the Dayak, whose artwork, costumes, traditions and songs can transport you into another world. Their ornate longhouses can be seen on the banks of rivers that snake their way through the jungle.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • How many days should you spend in Indonesia?

    We recommend 5-7 days on each island that you plan to visit, and at least two weeks overall, but you can find out more in our guide on how many days to spend in Indonesia.

  • How much is the cost for a trip to Indonesia?

    Depending on your travel style and accommodation, the average price of a trip to Indonesia for a solo US traveler for a week is around USD 1000-2500 including international flights. This equates to roughly USD 45 a day, but your activities, accommodations, and excursions may make this as high as USD 200 a day.

  • What is the best time to go to Indonesia?

    Depending on where you’re visiting, the best time to visit Indonesia may be different, but it tends to stretch from May to September. Juggling the wet and dry seasons alongside peak travel prices can be tricky.

  • Is Indonesia safe for tourists?

    Realistically, like everywhere, you will need to be careful on the streets of Indonesia, especially at night or in tourist hotspots. Petty theft is pretty common. Additionally, due to the location and amount of volcanic activity, the country is prone to natural disasters.
