Our business model revolves around removing all the stress and weight from your mind. This is a core tenet of our company. We can:


•Deal with all the paperwork related to your endeavours in Indonesia.

•Arrange all resource acquisitions and logistical requirements in country.


Experience has shown that expedition organizers, researchers, film and television projects invest considerable time in navigating complex ever-changing bureaucratic corridors. You can maximize time, funds and effort by accessing LAHUKA's expedition research and filming knowledge and local support networks - gained over decades in Indonesia.


LAHUKA has teamed up with selected UK partner Indo Trek to provide adventure expeditions in Indonesia and work in partnership so we can combine resources along with the expertise.


We have also developed a range of conservation projects (designated for group participation) in National Parks and BSKDA (Conservation) controlled areas working on activities which help rare and endangered species.


Indonesia has a whole range of locations ideally suited for mountaineering, 4x4 offroad, white water rafting, mountain biking, charity treks, community service projects, ultra running, all of which we have successfully planned and executed.

Early next year we will be detailing our group open Expedition and a series of short weekend trips.


Just let us know where and when you wish to travel to Indonesia, how many people in your group and the arrival and departure dates and we can help you plan your expedition. Those expeditions who have already planned their Expeditions to Indonesia we can supply a number of supporting services by contacting us through
