Reizen Trips Voyages Sumatra

Sumatra, Indonesia

Orang Oetang Sandra
Sumatra is one of the great green lungs of Inonesia. The major cities of Medan, Padang, Palembang and Banda Aceh are a relief compared to, for example, Jakarta or Surabaya.

Sumatra extends from Aceh province in the north to more than 2,200 km further Lampung in the south.

Highlights include Pualu Weh and Banda Aceh, Gunung Leuser National Park (jungle, orangutans and elephants), Lake Toba, the city of Bukittinggi and the surrounding area, the islands of Nias and Siberut, the extensive Kerinci Sablat park, the Way Kambas reserve and the island of Belitung.

A frequently made trip goes from Medan, via the Gunung Leuser park to Lake Toba. Especially nostalgic tourists then travel to Padang. Others return to Medan after Toba to continue the journey in Java.

Sumatran cuisine is known for its spicy dishes. Martabak is a typical Sumatran dish. It is a spiced omelette, filled with whatever you want, or whatever the restaurant's specialty is. Across the island you will find Warung Martabak, mobile restaurants that specialize in this dish. Rendang Padang can also be found all over the island (and far beyond). It is a braised or braised, very spicy beef dish.


Klimaat Sumatra
The rainy season is on Sumatra somewhat less marked than in the rest of Indonesia. Particularly in West Sumatra (jungle and lakeToba) rainfall is spread throughout the year, although the wettest months are October-December.
During the period February-September the weather is in general drier, with occasional showers.

Example Round trips Sumatra

Travelling around Sumatra is an experience in itself. The Trans-Sumatra Highway is some 3.000 km long and for the main part only a two-lane road.
A short and very popular Sumatra round trip goes from Medan to lake Toba and back via the jungle. But those who want to go further can take the two-week round trip to Padang and enjoy the nature around Bukittingi. If you want to continue all the way to the southeast your round trip takes even a good three weeks, but in the end you’ll see the rhinoceros and elephants.
For travellers with roots in less touristic places on Sumatra, Merapi, together with her local agent, always proposes a tailor-made round trip.

Rondreis Sumatra, Java en Bali | 25-08-2018
Merapi wist zich te verplaatsen in onze reiswensen en mogelijkheden om natuur, cultuur, historie van het land, de koloniale tijd en een gevoel te geven van het land waar mijn vader 3 jaar als militair heeft doorgebracht. En het graf van de gesneuvelde broer van mijn moeder in Bandung te bezoeken. On... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires

Beste Vera,

Dank voor uw e-mail. Bij dezen stuur ik u een recensie.

In mei 2019 ben ik naar Indonesië geweest voor een aantal trekkings in het oerwoud van Sumatra. Dit was een groot succes en dit was echt nooit gelukt zonder Merapi Tour & Travel. Ik had bijzondere en moeilijk te realiseren wen... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires
Sumatra en Bali | 08-07-2017
Beste Flip/Vera,

We zijn weer thuis na een fijne vakantie. Ik zou jullie een samenvatting geven van de gehele reis:

• Medan/Deli River: op zich prima, maar te kort om er iets over te zeggen. Het regende namelijk bij aankomst en we hebben dus niet kunnen genieten van tuin/zwembad. Wellicht he... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires

Sumatra-Java-Bali | 14-07-2014
Onze rondreis langs Sumatra, Java en Bali was inderdaad onvergetelijk en indrukwekkend. De vriendelijke en behulpzame lokale mensen, het oerwoud, de olifanten, orang-oetans, de Bromo vulkaan allerlei soorten bloemen en tropisch fruit. Ik voelde me bevoorrecht om dit allemaal te mogen ervaren. Ik be... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires
Bouwsteen noord Sumatra | 21-10-2013

We hebben het geweldig naar onze zin gehad in Sumatra. De accomodaties waren goed of voldoende. Alleen Brastagi Cottage vonden we minder. Geen raam in het slaapkamer gedeelte. Tevens vonden wij de kamer ernstig verouderd. Ronny de Toba zanger was ook erg leuk. Tevens vonden wij he... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires

Beste Vera,

Ik was er nog steeds niet aan toegekomen je te laten weten wat een geweldige reis we gemaakt hebben. Ik ben weer heel blij dat ik de reis bij Merapi geboekt heb. Het was overweldigend. Vooral Sumatra was heel bijzonder. Ik had er weinig voorstelling van wat we zouden tegenkomen: Batak... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires

Beste medewerkers van Merapi,

Afgelopen zaterdag zijn we terug gekomen van een fantastische reis door Sumatra en Bali, die door jullie was georganiseerd.

Beste Priscilla,

Wij zijn weer thuis van een ongelooflijk mooie reis.

Eerst onze vlucht naar Medan, die voor mijn man toch heel veel verheldering heeft gegeven dat er toch niet zoveel uit zijn jaren van vóór 1940 meer is en wat toch eigenlijk wel tegenviel gezien de staat waarin alles verkeerd... meer infomore infoInformations supplémentaires

Diving-trips Sumatra

Pulau Weh
When you think of Sumatra, you think of jungle and lake Toba. Diving-trips to Sumatra are not very well known yet.

There are not many dive resorts or dive centres. On many islands we haven’t been able to find good accommodation and/or dive-centres yet. We don’t recommend Batam because it is dominated by Singaporean mass tourism.

Beautiful is the dive resort on the westernmost tip, Pulau Weh and off the coast of Padang the bounty island Cubadak..
Both locations are well-equipped for both beginners and experienced divers. Merapi will be happy to help you put together your favourite dive trip on Sumatra, if desired in combination with one of our other tour modules.
