Itinerary

See how Bali's artistic centre overflows with artisans selling their wares. Arrive early to trace narrow streets, visit nearby villages or explore on two-wheels. Perhaps check out the eccentric Blanco Renaissance Museum, investigate Ubud's monkey forest or sample the bar scene.
Stock up on snacks from hawkers and head to Lombok by ferry. Catch a bemo to the peaceful hill retreat of Tetebatu, famed for its views of magnificent Mt Rinjani. Visit a local village and learn about the traditional pottery industry before a delicious group feast.
Wake before dawn for great views of sunrise over Mt Rinjani. Take a short cidomo (horse-drawn cart) ride to visit the market and local villages known for their craftwork. Travel onwards to the small village of Senaru and spend the night nestled between Mt Rinjani and the steamy jungles of Lombok.
Stretch the legs on a walk to Sindang Gila Waterfall before a boat trip across to gorgeous Gili Trawangan. Laze on isolated beaches, and spot turtles and reef sharks while snorkelling. Once the sun goes down, sit back and enjoy fresh seafood dinners. Before leaving this idyllic tropical paradise, perhaps go island-hopping to nearby Gili Air or Gili Meno.
Head back to the mainland where a farewell dinner will mark the end of this relaxing Lombok adventure.
