WHAT TO BRING

  • Clothing - The tropical climate means you can safely leave all of your warm weather gear at home. Bring cool pieces of cotton, T-shirts, and shorts. Likewise, a lightweight fleece could be useful for pre-dawn trekking or if there is a cold wind on the mountain  – even if you don’t need it, it will be helpful for the plane. Adventure Archipelago is respectful of the local cultures and customs; bring clothes that cover your shoulders and knees for villages or temples visits. Finally, you might want to bring at least one smart-casual outfit for sunset cocktails and evening meals. Ladies: beach throw-overs, kaftans and sarongs are always useful; choose fabrics that dry easily. Also, bring a lightweight sundress or two – several destinations offers an excellent setting for a photo shoot, live it up.
  • Bags - A day backpack is essential on day hikes to carry things such as your water bottle, camera, binoculars, and rain jacket. A waterproof wet/dry bag is a good idea for your phone, camera, etc.
  • Footwear - Pack comfortable trainers, trekking sandals, sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots for hikes and walks. Bring socks to wear inside your walking shoes to avoid getting blisters. Many travelers appreciate the added stability of a walking stick or hiking pole; lightweight telescopic poles are easy to pack. You might also want waterproof sandals or reef shoes for wet landings and water activities. Flip-flops are great for the beach. Note: Standard practice is to go barefoot on the boat.
  • Sun Protection - You’ll be spending plenty of time out in the scorching tropical sun, so be sure to pack sunscreen with a high enough SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays, which are stronger in the water, and some sun-protective clothing as well. Cover-ups, sarongs, sun shirts, and other such clothing will ensure that you come back from your trip with just happy memories and photographs – and not sunburn. A good hat is essential; a wide-brimmed hat or cap will keep the strong equatorial sun off your face and neck. Sunglasses keep your eyes protected and add a little glam to your photos. A strap to hold your glasses can be a good idea on more active adventures. Just in case you fail to avoid getting sunburnt, bring an aloe-based lotion to soothe burned skin.
  • Swimwear - Don’t forget your swimsuit/bikini/shorts/trunks/Speedos —and preferably more than just one swimsuit, so that one or two can be drying while you are wearing another. Luckily, swimsuits and/or swim trunks don’t take up too much space in your luggage. The water is warm but a rash guard (or a wetsuit) will protect you from the sun, abrasions and stings.
  • Skin & Hair Protection - Ladies, it’s important that you take good care of your skin and hair. The sun, seawater, and salty air may be beautiful to experience but it can be tough on your body and will wreak havoc on your locks. Bring moisturizing lotion to soothe skin parched by the sun and the saltwater; bring a leave-in conditioner to de-tangle your hair with ease because the water, mask, and hair-ties will leave it in knots. Also consider bringing a scarf or headband to hold back unruly hair, or hair-ties/pins to keep your hair off your face and therefore prevent water seeping into your mask.
  • Camera Equipment - If you are a photo enthusiast, bring all of the camera and video equipment that you will use as you can expect exceptional opportunities for photography. If you prefer the ease of a point and shoot, bring that. If you want to take underwater photos, you might want to invest in a waterproof camera/GoPro or waterproof housing to capture pictures of the incredible marine life. It’s also a good idea to bring a spare memory card.

Unforgettable experiences you’ll get:

  • Visit Villages of Baduy Tribe, natural villages untouched by modernization and contemplate their traditional way of life.
  • An excursion into to the Child of Krakatoa – a part of the Ring of Fire and one of the most deadly volcanic eruptions of modern history.
  • Chasing Java's rhinos, the rarest large animal on earth and some other endangered animals.
  • Explore amazing wildlife, alluring flora & lush forests, and enchanting coral reefs of UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ujung Kulon National Park.
  • A trilling canoeing adventure through little Amazon at Cigenter River, Handeuleum Island.
