Details

Day 1

Ubud

Welcome to Bali, Indonesia! Your adventure starts on the island’s spiritual capital, Ubud, with a 6pm welcome meeting at your hotel. If you arrive earlier, head out to explore the peaceful forested town, which is surrounded by lime-green rice paddies. Optional activities include taking a cooking class, visiting a Balinese spa or heading out to the countryside for a bike ride.

Day 2

Ubud

Explore Ubud on a guided walking tour, which lasts two and a half hours. Along the way you’ll get a chance to see authentic village life, rice fields, local arts and crafts and an alang alang valley, a type of wild grass used to make roofs. The tour ends in central Ubud where you can have lunch and check out the town’s cafés, galleries and shops. Later, you’ll visit Bumi Sehat, a community health clinic dedicated to helping mothers and children. The day ends with a Kecak dance performance which involves theatrical chanting and decorative costumes.

Breakfast included.

Day 3

Ubud - Sidemen

Hop on your bicycle for a two-and-a-half-hour tour of Ubud. The route takes you through Ubud’s quiet backstreets to villages and ornate temples, through vibrant rice fields, with plenty of rest and photo stops along the way. Over half the journey is downhill, so it’s a leisurely tour that ends back in Ubud. In the afternoon, relax on a two-hour minivan drive up to the village of Sidemen, where you can get great views of Bali’s highest mountain, Agung. Note that bicycles and helmets are provided, there’s also a support vehicle following behind if you don’t want to cycle the whole way.

Breakfast included.

Day 4

Sideman – Mount Batur

Set out with a guide on a morning walking tour of Sidemen, where you’ll meet villagers and learn about the local craft and songket weaving industry. You’ll also take in the stunning scenery and enjoy a bungkus lunch before driving higher up into the mountains. The trip will take you along a crater-rim road with sweeping views over the island. Your final destination is a quiet fishing village near Lake Batur which is named after the 1,717-metre-tall volcano, Mount Batur. Rest and have dinner in your guesthouse at the base of the volcano, ready for your big trek tomorrow morning.

Breakfast and lunch included.

Day 5

Mount Batur - Lovina

Get an extremely early start at 3am for the two-hour trek to Mount Batur’s summit. You’ll reach the top in time to watch the sunrise over Bali, which features views stretching over the valleys and out to sea. In fact, if it’s a clear day, you can see all the way to Lombok. Be aware that the weather can be unpredictable, so make sure to bring sturdy shoes, a rain jacket, a warm layer and head torch for the trek.

After descending Batur, you can opt for a rewarding soak in nearby hot springs, overlooking the lake and caldera. End the day with a three-hour bus trip to Lovina, a tranquil town on the coast that’s known for its food, massages, yoga classes and dolphins.

Breakfast included.

Day 6

Lovina

Today you’ll enjoy a snorkelling adventure. Take a short boat ride to Menjangan Island Reef, which is part of the pristine Bali Barat National Park. Look out for colourful fish and coral reefs while you snorkel in the clear, warm waters. Spend the afternoon as you please, swimming, sunbathing or strolling along the beach. On the way back to Lovina, you’ll make a stop at Banjar Hot Spring for a healing soak before a home-cooked Balinese meal at Ibu Wayans. There are a range of optional activities on offer in Lovina, but note that we don’t encourage dolphin-watching trips because they’re unregulated and can be harmful to the animals.

Breakfast and dinner included.

Day 7

Munduk – Bedugul

Start the day with a one-hour drive to the hilltop village Munduk, where you’ll walk through clove and coffee plantations to a hidden waterfall. Bask in the cooling spray before heading on to Lake Bratan, famous for its Hindu-Buddhist temple which sits on a small island in the middle of the lake. Your final stop for the day is Bedugul. When you arrive, take in the atmosphere of this mountain town, which sits in the misty highlands of a volcanic lake region. Bring some warmer clothes for this portion of the trip, as it can get cold in the evenings and early mornings.

Breakfast included.

Day 8

Sanur

Start the day with a trip to the Bali Botanical Gardens, which boasts over 2,000 plant species from across Indonesia. Next, you’ll drive to the white-sand beaches of Sanur, about two hours away. Spend the afternoon as you please, stroll along the five-kilometre stretch of sand and swim in gentle waters sheltered by a reef. Dine in one of Sanur’s up-market restaurants by the sea, visit nearby temples and take in views of local fishermen at work.

Since this is a combination trip, your group and leader may change at this point, so there will be another welcome meeting in the evening where you can get to know your new group.

Breakfast included.

Day 9

Puyung Village – Tetebatu

Say goodbye to Bali and take a bus, then fast boat, on a three-hour journey to Lombok. When you arrive, you’ll take a bus to Puyung Village in central Lombok, where you’ll enjoy a home-cooked lunch with a local family. Your day ends in the hillside retreat of Tetebatu, which lies at the base of Mount Rinjani, an active volcano that stretches over 3,700 metres into the sky.

Breakfast and lunch included.

Day 10

Tetebatu - Labuan Pandan

Today you’ll explore the local area on a guided walk through rice fields ploughed by buffalos, to learn about local farm life. You’ll pass clove and coffee plantations and try some local coffee along the way. Today’s highlight is a trip to Pringgasela Village, where you’ll take part in some weaving and a Sasak feast. In the afternoon, move on to Labuan Pandan on Lombok’s east coast, a remote hideaway with bungalow accommodation by the sea.

Breakfast and lunch included.

Day 11
