2 Weeks Indonesia itinerary offers a lifetime experience in an exciting blend of adventure, wildlife, and culture. Here’s a sneak peek at the wonders you’ll discover.

One of the most brilliant destinations for keen travelers, Indonesia is a huge country offering a myriad of wonders. From the wonderful Lake Toba up North Sumatera to the stunning Raja Ampat, more than 3,000 km away in West Papua, everything in between. You would probably be unable to cover all exciting destinations in a month, let alone on a two-week trip. As such, making a two-week itinerary for Indonesia can be challenging.

2 Weeks Indonesia itinerary

With thousands of islands sprawling over the country, visiting Indonesia’s best destinations in just two weeks is impossible. The best you can do is select one or two islands and explore a couple of destinations on each. This way, you will discover some of Indonesia’s great diversity without spending too much time jumping from one location to another.

It’s even better to pick destinations that offer a different experience, where you can taste adventure, wildlife, and culture. But first, you will need to decide which locations to visit. These Indonesia itineraries 2 weeks will take you to explore different islands in the archipelago, with a mix of adventure, wildlife, and culture.

Sumatra Java Bali Tour

Java has many amazing destinations spanning from the west to the east. Tangkuban Perahu in West Java greets you with breathtaking scenery. Pamper yourself and revitalize your body at the Ciater Hot Spring.

Bali Lombok Tour

With numerous high-end resorts, fine-dining restaurants, and other tourism-supporting facilities, Bali is perhaps Indonesia’s most developed tourism destination. The neighboring island Lombok is quieter, with clean beaches and less-crowded attractions. Lush vegetation, picturesque terrain, and long stretches of beaches make up the landscape of Lombok. Lombok’s amazing nature provides an ideal trekking, surfing, and diving venue.

As such, your Bali-Lombok itinerary will take you to experience the best mix the two islands offer.

This itinerary also allows you leisure time, where you can discover. Rent a bike or take Cidomo and find other gems of Lombok, such as the Gunungsari market and Narmada and Lingsar temples.

Flores Komodo Tour

Discover a wildlife escapade that only exists in Indonesia, meeting Komodo dragons in its natural habitat. Since Komodo National Park also boasts a picturesque panorama, island hopping should be part of the itinerary.

Not far from the land of the giant lizards, Flores is a beautiful but less visited paradise. Mount Kelimutu National Park, for example, is one of the most remarkable wonders. The three lakes on the mountain, Lake Kelimutu, are spectacular. The water can turn blue, green, black, and sometimes white, red, and blue.

Other than those exquisite destinations, the Flores-Komodo itinerary includes visits to Moni, Riung, Bajawa, Ruteng, Denge, Wae Rebo, Labuan Bajo, and island hopping—Kelor Island, Rinca Island, Kalong Island, Kanawa Island, and many more.

Overall, Indonesia’s Two-Week Itinerary through Flores and Komodo offers adventure hiking combined with visits to traditional villages, prehistoric heritage sites, and cultural events. Here, you will find rich underwater life, pristine seas, exotic native fauna, and stunning islands.

Discover Sulawesi

The exotic island of Sulawesi lies on the edge of the Wallace Line and is blessed with endemic animals and plants that don’t exist anywhere else. As such, the wildlife tour in Sulawesi is exciting, ranging from rainforest exploration to a whale shark tour.

You’ll also get to feast your eyes on a lot of cultural heritage, from the historic Fort Rotterdam to the Royal Palace of Gowa Kingdom, Somba Opu Castle, Otanaha Fortress, and beautiful villages with traditional houses.

South Sulawesi also offers a spectacular view. You’ll get the chance to see villages framed by Karst Mountains, paddle a canoe through the exotic Puteh River, explore Passaung cave with its prehistoric drawings from the Paleolithic, take a boat to Lake Tempe with traditional floating houses of Bajo people, discover authentic silk weaving, hike through Pana to Tikala with spectacular views, and many more.

Another highlight of Sulawesi’s adventure is the Toraja tour. Situated in the northern highlands of South Sulawesi, Tana Toraja is home to an indigenous tribe who still practices ancient traditions.

Their funeral rites are particularly unique, as bodies are not buried in the ground but placed in a coffin and then laid in a cave, in a stone grave, hung on a cliff, or in a tree (for babies). Dances are performed during funeral ceremonies to express their grief and to honor the deceased. Some burial sites are open for visitors, and this tour will take you to Suaya to see the royal tombs, cliff-side stone grave at Lemo, baby’s graves at Kambira, hanging grave at Ke’te Kesu’, the natural cave grave at Londa, and Lo’ ko mata with tombs on the rocky slope.

The Torajans also have a unique tradition called Ma’nene, where they take out the mummified bodies, clean them up, and dress them in new clothes. The ceremony only takes place every 3 years and usually falls in August. If you wish to see this ritual, consult our tour planner to arrange a personalized itinerary.
