One of Indonesia’s bigger island’s – about double the size of NZ with 50 million inhabitants and home to the increasingly rare Sumatran elephants and tigers. Sumatra is mainly an adventure tourism island, with tropical forests to explore, wild orang-utans to discover and some of the best surf breaks off the Mentawai Islands, which are also home to hunter-gatherer tribes. Inland Sumatra you’ll find Lake Toba, a large natural lake occupying the caldera of a supervolcano. Samosir Island within Lake Toba is worth visiting to learn about the Batak culture and see their traditional architecture.
