With hiking, cycling and snorkelling, this trip is steeped in outdoor activities. But there's also plenty of time to relax – bathe in hot springs, laze on the beach or stroll around botanical gardens
Immerse yourself in Balinese culture – you'll eat street food with locals, meet songket weavers, witness a traditional Kecak dance performance and visit a Hindu-Buddhist island temple
Adventure to the summit of Mt Batur, where, on a clear morning, dazzling sunrise vistas stretch across the Lombok Strait, all the way over to the peaks of Mt Rinjani
Escape the tourists – and the heat – in Sidemen, a lovely, peaceful village nestled in the hills
A good level of fitness is essential, as there are a range of physical activities included (cycling from Ubud, walking up Mt Batur at sunrise, and snorkelling in Bali Barat National Park).
There is one very early start – your sunrise climb of Mt Batur kicks off at 3 am. This means you'll be walking over some gravel and volcanic rock in the dark. Head torches, warm clothing and good walking shoes are a must. The view at sunrise is well worth the effort, especially if the weather's fine!
We visit villages and small towns on this trip, where life is more conservative than in the tourist areas. You will need to bring clothes that allow your shoulders and knees to be covered for both men & women. At some hot springs you will need to wear a t-shirt and shorts over your swimwear.
Bali is blessed with a consistent climate for most of the year. However, the rainy season (usually October–March) brings frequent downpours. The good news is that these rainy bursts don't last long, and it is usually still warm.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2018 to 31 December 2018. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2017 - 31 December 2017

The package is amazing value for money. The activities are awesome and not just the vanilla activities you would do as an individual traveller. Mount Batur is challenging, ensure you start slower to maintain your energy levels for the last stretches. The snorkeling is an awesome experience and the instructor is very patient and informative for beginners. The local community experiences are quite interesting as well with the kecak dance being the highlight of the local culture experience. Backpacks are useful and easy to carry at hotels, but you can easily use a trolley suitcase as well. Ensure you stay hydrated as it is quite hot and you are active and in the sun quite a lot. Overall an amazing trip packed with activities and experiences.

Bali is a lovely country with a variety of terrain. One day you will find yourself at the beach and a few hours later in the mountains amongst active volcanos. Much of the trip is physical with walks, hikes and touring around on foot and a lot of time is spent driving around the island, which makes the trip a bit exhausting. But you see a lot and how people live on the island.
