I am so excited to announce that my next challenge retreat is here!!
I have partnered with Exodus again to bring you guys an Indonesian Volcanic Trek! Join me on this once in a lifetime retreat where we will watch the sunrise from the impressive Mount Merbabu (Altitude maximum 3726m), trek on the Pacific Ring of Fire and push ourselves out of our comfort zone on an 8 day trek. Here in the South East Asian archipelago, you will experience more active volcanoes than anywhere else on Earth.

£2,499 per person, including flights and domestic flight OR £1.399 per person. It is advised to go all inclusive as this includes the correct domestic flight and transfer.
An additional £300 will be required for extra meals, drinks & tipping.
Extras & Hotels:
Food: we would recommend for travellers to budget for approximately £175-£225 for all other meals, which will allow you to eat well. Apart from the food, you should allow money to cover soft drinks (more if for alcoholic drinks) and souvenirs.
Tipping: The leader will suggest to the group that they donate a sum of about 900,000IDR (about £50.00) per person towards a kitty on arrival. This money is then used for tipping of local guides, mountain porters, hotel porters, drivers etc as well for purchasing water and possibly some snacks. It is basically to ensure that the hassle is taken out of various activities for you. If you do not wish to contribute to a central pool for tips you are of course free to do so. It does not include the tips for the leader, however.
Hotels: All hotels are included within the price of the trip and hotel details can be found here.
How to Book?
Once you’ve read the proposed itinerary here and are keen to join me then please give my dedicated contact at Exodus Travels a call. Her name is Thidara and her details are included in this link. Thidara will be more than happy to discuss the trip with you in detail, just call 020 8772 3761 or click here to email Thidara Udomritkul.
Unfortunately, there are only 15 places on the trip and availability of spaces is only guaranteed upon confirmation of reservation. Once you are happy with the itinerary you just need to pay a 10% deposit of the total cost of the trip, to confirm your place and let Thidara know of any medical conditions or dietary requirements. Full payment for the trip is due 60 days before departure which should give us all time to save up.
This is going to be the trip of a lifetime, no only because of the views around us but the bond we will all establish between us. I will, of course, help you to feel your best version of you for the trip and will invite you into a WhatsApp group with the other people attending to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I am so excited to tackle this challenge with you!
