Manado international Airport has regular international flights to/from Singapore operated by Silkair on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. It's also connected to Jakarta, Denpasar-Bali and Makassar by Garuda Indonesia or Lionair, both offering daily flights, 7 days a week.

From Manado, you can reach Likupang Village by taxi in approximately 45 minutes from the airport or 1 hour and 15 minutes from the city centre (price around 150.000/200.000 IDR). Otherwise you can catch a bus from "Paal II Bus Terminal" at around 11.00 AM (price 12.000 IDR per person) but be aware that the bus schedule and punctuality can vary due to several reasons.

Once you are in Likupang Village you can get either a local boat (approximately 40 minutes, price to be fixed with the boat owner) or a public boat to Lihunu (1 hour, usually leaving at 14.30, price 25.000 IDR per person). From this small village there's a path in the jungle and in less then one hour you can reach us.

We can provide a complete transfer upon request from any place in the Manado area by private car and private speed boat. The return price from/to the international airport is 50€ per person (approximately 845.000 IDR) and it takes about 1 hour and a half each way. Our transfer is available from 7am up to 4pm.
