Things to do: nature, historic sites, sightseeing
Volcanic activity has left a wealth of terrains and topography in North Sumatra, the second most populated province in the country. The region boasts the world's largest volcanic lake, waterfalls, and numerous islands. Because of the affinity to the water, visitors come to take part in a diverse range of activities like surfing, snorkeling, and birdwatching. Inland, traditional Malay homes in small settlements showcase rustic architecture alongside more formal and ornate Buddhist temples. The main urban areas provide an introduction to the multicultural history of the nation. With our custom trip planner, Indonesia vacations can be built around trips to North Sumatra and other destinations in Indonesia.
