Why Indonesia?

Indonesia boasts more active volcanoes than anywhere else in the world. Many of them are very photogenic and invite for exciting excursions ranging from easy walks to multiple-days trekking tours. Some of the most famous volcanic eruptions occurred in Indonesia in the remote and recent past, such as Tambora (1815) and Krakatoa (1883), both events that left a deep impression in history.
But Indonesia offers much more than volcanoes: It is also an extremely colorful and diverse country, with dramatic landscapes, wonderful beaches, thousands of islands, and bustling villages. Visitors are delighted by the friendliness of the Indonesian people.
