Samosir Overview

Samosir Island is an island located more or less at the centre of Lake Toba. At 630 sq km, Samosir is just slightly smaller than Singapore, which is 714 sq km. Samosir holds the distinction for being the largest island within an island, and the fourth largest island within a lake.

The island is host to a number of historical Batak sites and legends. It is dotted with towns, many of which (Tuk Tuk, Tomok, Pangururan) cater to tourists, and others (Ambarita, Simanindo, Limbong), which host sites of interest for tourists. Many tourists enjoy renting motorbikes and circling the island to take in everything each town has to offer.
