Sumatra is hugely diverse in culture and topography. It is the largest island that is entirely in Indonesia and is approximately twice the length of the UK. It spans across the equator, encompassing rainforest, volcanoes, pine forests, lakes, waterfalls, verdant meadows, padi fields and beaches.
Hiring a car and driver is the best way to experience and journey around the highlights of the island. Our car and driver are available to hire for longer trips so that you can explore more of Sumatra at your own leisure. We can also assist with pre-booking accommodation and activities, if required.
