This is an ideal tour for those interested in discovering more about Indonesian culture and weaving. It’s incredible how much we pack into just four days. Basing ourselves at a city hotel in Ende we visit the Bung Karno Museum to learn more about the Indonesian independence movement, a hilltop village with fascinating architecture, great coffee and a small weaving co-operative.

We then move to a mountain ecolodge set in rice fields, from where we will visit two more very different weaving villages, and enjoy a performance of song and dance. We end the tour with an early morning excursion to the multi-coloured volcanic lakes at Kelimutu, where the local monkeys will also entertain us.


Our mission is to provide the best experience possible for our guests given the current conditions and when unexpected opportunities for adventure may present themselves along our cruise routes. Sometimes weather conditions, tides or other local factors dictate that we need to vary from the published route, and at times there are special opportunities to explore and discover new locations, events and activities. These explorations will always be a definite enhancement to the published itinerary and will be undertaken after discussion and agreement among guests. Ultimately, the boat captains and your tour leader will make decisions to maximize trip safety and your overall enjoyment, so please come prepared to be flexible!

The More You Know The More You See

Our tour leaders are a wealth of information on the regions we visit and will prepare you for each activity with on board talks and presentations to give you a greater understanding of the different experiences you will have each day. They will also act as your cross cultural bridges to all the people we meet along the way, so feel free to ask them to translate when talking to local Indonesian people on your travels.
