Indonesia is an amazing country, located on numerous islands on the border between two great oceans.

Some of these Islands are well-studied, densely populated, and since ancient times there have been preserved amazing monuments of ancient civilizations. At dawn, we will go down to the majestic temple complexes of Borobudur and Prambanan, meet the sunset by the ocean, in front of the original temples of the island of Bali.

We will take photos of astonishing landscapes of the volcanoes of Java, see the famous Bromo volcano, climb over the Sevu waterfall. For many participants, the dancing trees of Sumba island will be a real photographic discovery.
The other Islands that we are planning to visit are much less explored.

We will immerse into the wild jungles of Kalimantan island, with no roads. In the forests, it is possible to find unknown species of plants and animals. We will have a small ship, which will be our home in the wild nature for two days. We will take pictures of wild orangutans that come to the river banks, and amazing proboscis monkeys that live in the crowns of trees. These animals can only be found here, on Kalimantan.

We will also visit the Komodo Islands and see giant lizards, contemporaries of the dinosaurs. We will take photos of incredible landscapes of Padar island. Here, we will also have a small ship to explore the islands of the Komodo National Park.

For our photo tour, we will visit eight extremely diverse and amazingly beautiful islands, three interesting national parks, get lots of impressions and make great photos.

You will not forget this trip till the rest of your life!

* You can take a drone with you. In some places we can take photos from the air. We will learn how to take pictures from a drone and share our flight experience.
