Welcome to the Island of the Gods! Day 1 of our trip is welcome day. We will pick you up from the airport and cruise down to the bustling hub of Canggu to meet the rest of the group. Check in at the awesome Frii Hotel and have an afternoon Bintang by the pool or if you are feeling the affects of your long flight, have a quick siesta. Just before sundown we will stroll down to the beach to catch your first epic Bali sunset!
Rise and shine! This morning we will be starting you off right with some Balinese culture when we check out the temple Tanah Lot. Feel a special connection with the Gods as the waves crash into the rocky outcrop the temple sits upon. After a big morning of culture you will be getting hungry, so for lunch it is off to try some of Bali’s local delicacies at a local warung (restaurant). A big day deserves some rest and relaxation. Wind down with a soothing Balinese massage or stretch yourself out with a session of yoga.
After a big day out in the ocean, it is now time for you to head for the hills, next stop will be Ubud. After Batuan Temples we will visit the towering Tegenungan waterfalls, pack a towel if you want to have a refreshing dip! Next up the famous Ubud rice terraces and maybe jump on the swing. After lunch, it is time to get the bananas ready as we go and visit Monkey Forest, watch out they can be cheeky! End the day with a tranquil sundown drink in the rooftop infinity pool.
For all the keen hikers it will be an early start for you today. Time to catch one of the best sunrises of your life on top of Mt Batur. Watch the sun shimmer its way through the low lying clouds below you. If mountain climbing or early mornings isn’t your thing then enjoy a sleep in back in Ubud. Once the intrepid mountaineers get back to Ubud we will be off to fire up some woks and cook our own lunch at a traditional Balinese cooking class. End the day with a tranquil sundown drink in the tropical gardens of the guesthouse.
Time for greener pastures or should we say bluer waters. Today we will island hop to the spectacular Gili islands. Cruise in style on the fast boat. Once we arrive in Gilli T, we will get checked into the Jati Guest House and make our way to the beach to get that famous Gili T sunset swing shot. Once the sun goes down the Gili T nightlife ramps up. Try a couple ‘joss shots’ and dance the night away up and down the many beach bars.
All aboard as we get onto our private boat to do a tour of the 3 Gili islands. Kick that hangover in the butt by diving into the crystal clear tropical waters whilst we go turtle spotting. Once back to Gili T where we will jump on bicycles for a leisurely pedal around the island to take in the stunning views.
Today we say goodbye to the Gili Islands, and we will be making our way to the relatively unexplored island of Nusa Lembongan. We will have the morning in Gili T to have a lazy brunch or another cycle around before the boat leaves around lunch time. We will arrive in time to watch another amazing sunset from the legendary Devils Tear viewpoint.
What better way to start the day then by snorkeling with Manta Rays!! After lunch we learn to surf in paradise! Forget those other surf schools over in Bali, we ride the crystal clear swell of Nusa Lembongan. Learn the basics on the sand with our qualified surf instructor before paddling out to the famous ‘Playgrounds’ break. Don’t worry you won’t be alone! Our instructor will be right there next to you helping you glide onto the best waves. After sunset, we will be heading out for dinner at another of our fave restaurants which serves you western meals as well as classic Indonesian cuisine. Tonight your guide will also help to start to plan your onward travel.
Today will sadly be our final full day of the trip. However, we have saved the best for last! Nusa Penida!! We take in the Mangroves before making our way to Nusa Penida. Take iconic photo high above Kelingking Beach & Billabong Beach. After lunch, we will go and chill at the wonderful Crystal Bay. Then back to Nusa Lembongan before catching one last incredible sunset together. Tonight we will have a group meal and reminisce over all the photos from the week before heading out for one last drink together.
Today we say goodbye to each other as we go our separate ways! Hopefully not many tears will be shed. The return ferry ticket back to anywhere in Bali will be organised by your group leader. Don’t forget to get one last group photo!

What a trip!It has been absolutely amazing to be here in Bali, it is beautiful and the culture is so interesting. There are plenty of activities but also the right amount of downtime for it to feel like a holiday.
The accommodation overall has been surprisingly nice in some places I would have even chosen myself! The tour leader Alice has been great, extremely helpful and accommodating, with any problems! The itinerary has been great I’ve experienced a lot of things I wouldn’t normally get involved with, there was never any pressure to do anything, which was nice if we wanted to do something different! The value for money, overall has been great!
Trip was good. Everything I expected
Better than expected!!! Great group dynamic and organized
Really amazing! I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this trip.
