indonesia is

Not only the largest archipelago nation in the world, Indonesia is also one of the most populated nations in the world. Even though it is home to the planet’s busiest island, Java, this place is an outdoor utopia.

Located on the volcanic Ring of Fire, Indonesia has a seemingly endless supply of volcanoes to summit. If hiking is not your thing Indonesia is literally surrounded by water activities. Housing some of the best surfing and diving in the world you could loose yourself on the beaches of Indonesia.
