The world’s largest island within an island, Samosir is a vast volcanic island, situated north of the Sumatra Island in Indonesia. Samosir lies in the very heart of Lake Toba, which occupies the volcanic crater of world’s largest super volcano. A perfect family vacation spot for a relaxed holiday, Samosir Island preserves its natural scenic highlands as well as the traditional rituals of the culturally rich Indonesia.
Samosir Island beckons tourists with its spectacular, un-tethered countryside and pure pointed slopes that slant into the deep blue water surrounding it. Formed by the cooling of the crater created by a super volcano, Samosir Island rose up from the Lake Toba floor and nurtured into a beautiful elixir of lush green scenery, freshwater lake and friendly tribe of people, the Bataks. For the culture-vultures, the dotting clusters of Batak heritage houses with roofs that curve upwards like pine trees, the fascinating soft pedaled white churches that carve the stature of the prehistoric stone tombs and monuments are worth the sights to behold.
