We will have lunch on the biggest lake in the region, Lake Tondano. Enjoy our traditional and delicious fish cuisine, fried or grilled. Bring a sweater as it can get windy. After lunch, a short distance away, we will visit Polutan Village, a pottery industry for making ceramics. Our journey back will bring us to the changing color lake, Linow. Due to its sulfur content, it’s quite breathtaking. We will stop along the way to look for handicrafts in Tinoor – traditional hats and Bamboo handicrafts just to name a few.


From the Resort, we proceed in a comfortable air-conditioned coach for a 3 hour journey towards the National Park, stopping to visit Waruga, the ancient graves of Minahasan people – the bodies inside are preserved in the sitting position.

Once in the National Park, we will trek and hike in search of the Black Crested Macaque (Makaka Nigra, indigenous to North Sulawesi), and the Tarsius Spectrum (the world’s smallest primate). There are also plenty of birds – look out for the Hornbill Bird (Rhyticeros Casidix). Upon finishing our tour of the park, we will proceed towards Manado and stop by a local restaurant for dinner before returning to the resort. Bring your cameras, long trousers and insect repellent. Our guides will bring the rest for you. Your lunch will be provided by the Resort.


The Minahasa region is formed by mountains, hills, green valleys and volcanoes. It is possible to explore some of them during your stay at the Resort.

Mahawu is capped by a 180-m-wide, 140-m-deep crater that sometimes contains a small crater lake, and has two pyroclastic cones on its northern flank.

A surprisingly easy to climb, Mt Mahawu is a must for those who love to see nature while enjoying a gentle climb towards the top. Our tour will also bring us to Tomohon vegetable farms where we will start our ascent. From the base it will take us around a 1 hour trek to the lip of the crater. Upon descending to the base we will proceed to a local restaurant for a sumptuous Minahasa style lunch.
