ARRIVE IN BALI
Your Group Leader will be at Denpasar airport to meet you when you arrive. You have the day to relax by our rooftop pool or explore the local beaches before we meet in the evening for a welcome BBQ to meet the rest of the group you’ll be travelling with!
TANAH LOT & ROYAL TEMPLE
For a cultural introduction to our chosen Indonesian island, our local guides will take us to visit two of Bali’s most beautiful temples – Tanah Lot and the Royal Temple of Tamun Ayun. These temples are steeped in history and are a big part of the Balinese way of life. In the evening, we’ll catch a spectacular sunset from the local beach, before dinner and a night on the town in one of Canggu’s lively bars.
Surfs up on day three! We head straight to the famous Kuta Beach to learn how to catch a wave with our friendly local instructors. In the afternoon there’s free time to shop in Kuta’s markets and then chill out and catch another awesome sunset at our rooftop pool.
UBUD & WATERFALLS.
It’s time to pack our bags as we move our location to the cultural town of Ubud situated in the heart of the island. En route to our next destination, we make a stop at a beautiful waterfall to cool off. When we arrive in Ubud, we’ll check into our awesome accommodation and then set off to visit one of Bali’s most famous live music destinations for an evening of singing and a boogie!
COOKING CLASS & MONKEY FOREST
We spend the morning with a local family who take us shopping in the food markets before teaching us how to cook some of Bali’s most delicious dishes in their home cooking school. In the afternoon it’s time to meet the famous locals of Ubud in the Monkey Forest! (Don’t take any food with you!) The hundreds of monkeys present are believed to protect the temple within and it’s the perfect time to get up close and personal with these amazing creatures.
LOCAL MARKETS & RICE TERRACES
We spend the morning exploring Ubud’s markets which are the prime place to grab some beautiful souvenirs. We then head for lunch with stunning views over an active volcano before we spend the afternoon wandering the famous rice terraces, which are still used to farm rice for sale all over the world.
HEAD TO THE GILI ISLANDS
It’s time to catch a ferry and head over to the picture perfect Gili Islands, every traveller’s favourite! We will arrive at our base, Gili T, which is home our home for the next three nights around midday, and then have a free afternoon to explore the island or catch some rays by our pool. At dusk, we’ll head out to watch the sunset as well as snap some photos on the well-known Gili T sea swing!
ISLAND HOPPING ADVENTURE
We spend the day island hopping and snorkelling around the three Gili Islands on our private boat! Our first stop is an old shipwreck site, which is really interesting. We then stop for some lunch on Gili Air before we head round to Turtle point to snorkel with the local legends – turtles of course! Have the chance to swim alongside these elegant creatures before heading back to Gili T.
BIKE RIDE AROUND GILI TRAWANGAN
As there are no motorized vehicles on Gili T we hop on our push bikes to do a round trip of the island. Along the way, we’ll stop off at secluded beaches and many different bars. We then head out in the evening for a party at the lively local beach bars to end our awesome Bali Adventure!
