North Sulawesi is becoming an increasingly popular international tourist destination, based mainly on the stunning coral reefs around the island of Bunaken, which is close to the provincial capital of Manado. The mainland also has many attractions including the amazing and accessible Tangkoko-Batuangas Dua Saudara (Tangkoko) National Park, where among fabulous forest stretching from the coast to 1,350 m elevation you can see endemic black macaques, tarsiers, and endemic red-knobbed hornbills.

There are plenty of good volcanoes too, including the highest peak in the province – Gunung Klabat – whose trailhead is only 1 hour drive from Manado, and Gunung Soputan, perhaps the finest volcano on mainland Sulawesi. Others are more remote, and those located off the end of the peninsular are challenging to reach and can be dangerously active such as Karangetang, Indonesia’s most active volcano.
