Solor Archipelago is an island group in Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. It comprises three main islands (Adonara, Lembata and Solor) as well as numerous smaller islands, just east of Flores and west of the Alor Archipelago.
- Lewoleba — Lembata's main town is also a regional centre and has some useful facilities (transport connections, ATMs, internet)
- Waiwerang — the main town Adonara
- Lamalera — a small village on Lembata, known for its whale-hunters
English is not widely spoken, so it's helpful to learn a little Bahasa Indonesia. However, even the national language is not spoken everywhere. The local language is Lamaholot.
A daily wooden ferry links Larantuka on the eastern tip of Flores to Adonara (stopping at Waiwerang, Rp 12,000) and Lembata (stopping at Lewoleba, Rp 30,000). There is also a speed boat several times a day connecting Larantuka and Lewoleba (Rp 100,000) via Weiwarang in 1 hour. Another ferry connects Lewoleba to Kupang (ekonomi class 70,000 including small meal, 12 hours). Pelni ships also serve the area.
