Overland Tour

The volcanoes of Berastagi and the spectacular Lake Toba are not to be missed on a visit to North Sumatra. This tour is an ideal way to relax and explore after trekking or perfect for those wanting to see the highlights of North Sumatra without pulling on the walking boots

•  Day One

Travel by private transportation from Bukit Lawang or Medan to Berastagi. Lunch followed by a stroll around local fruit and flower markets or exploration of the local Batak Karo villages.

•  Day Two

Early morning climb up Sibayak or Sinabung volcano. Descend to the volcano base and take the opportunity to relax in the hot springs. After lunch embark on the picturesque journey through pine forest, terraced plantations and verdant meadows to Lake Toba, stopping at the magnificent Sipiso Piso waterfall en route. Arrive at Parapat and take the ferry to Samosir Island. Settle into hotel accommodation on the edge of the Lake.

•  Day Three-Five

Lake Toba is a perfect place to kick back and relax. Spend as many days as you like taking full advantage of the revitalising and invigorating scenery of the lake.
