Surf's Up & Tanah Lot

Bali is a world-renowned paradise for surfers. The sandy bottoms and slow-moving surf of Kuta make it the ideal place for your surfing lesson. Then, to Tanah Lot for sunset. This is one of Bali's famous Seven Sea Hindu Temples - with all seven constructed within eyesight to the next to form a chain that is believed to protect the coast from invaders.

Day 9

Waterfalls, School & Caves

Today is all about exploring the scenery, people, and the ancient history of Ubud. After breakfast, we volunteer time at a local school to play games, help out with English-speaking lessons, and experience what day-to-day life is like for this curious group of smiley students. Then we head to Air Tegungan Waterfalls to swim and explore this jaw-dropping spectacle. Finish with a visit to the 9th century temple of Goa Gajah - also known as Elephant Cave. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was not fully unearthed until the 1950's.

Day 10

River Rafting & Fire Dance

Time to raft the rivers of Ubud! This is an all-new addition to the tour and is just the right amount of adventure for first-time river rafters. This is a casual two-hour raft along the river through the dense jungle surrounding this entire stunning area. Then, back for some poolside relaxation at our hotel before heading to a local temple to watch a traditional Kecak Fire Dance. Ubud is pure magic and you are seeing the best this jungle paradise has to offer.

Day 11

Goin' To Gili T

No trip to Bali is complete without a visit to the island paradise of Gili Trawangan! When you think of Bali with the perfect beaches, picturesque sea swings at sunset, teal waters, and buzzing nightlife, Gili T is likely the place you have in mind. Settle in and relax. This is where you will home for the next four nights.

Swimming With Sea Turtles

The time has come to check "swim with sea turtles" off your bucket list! We make a day of it with a full-on island-hopping adventure. Sea turtles are the highlight, of course, but you will also get a day of swimming, sun, and fun - including a lunchtime feast aboard our private boat.

Gili T Beach Day

Nothing beats beach days in Bali! Catch some sun, rent a paddleboard, hop on the bike, sample the local seafood, and enjoy one of Bali's most stunning settings. This is a backpacker hotspot with no shortage of ways to spend a day. Beachside beers suggested but not mandatory.

Day 14

Gili T Free Day

Your last day in Gili T is yours to spend as you please! There are many options... we suggest, you decide. The best spot to be is on the beach or in the sea soaking in the picture-perfect place you've called home over the last three days. Scratch that. There is no bad way to spend this day but that's a good place to start.

Day 15

Tegagalang Ricefields

All those photos of those stunning ricefields in Bali? This is the place! After departing Gili, we jump in the private vans to head off the beaten track to our mountainside retreat. On the way, we stop at the rolling ricefields of Tegagalang. Then to one of the most iconic temples in all of Bali to take a sin-cleansing dip in the holy springs of Pura Tirta Empul.

Bali's Tallest Waterfall

Hidden away in the jungle is the jaw-dropping Sekumpul Wateralls! Widely regarded as "the most beautiful waterfall in Bali", we spend the morning trekking, swimming, and exporing the basin of several rivers that feed the waterfalls streaming down from above - one waterfall from up to 80 metres high. Then, off to our mountainside camping spot for a campfire, BBQ, and ultra unique camping experience.
