Why you'll love this trip
  • 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
  • Snorkelling the crystal waters around Menjangan Island reef and also off the east coast of Lombok. Hopefully spot some tropical fish and perhaps if you are lucky some sea turtles.
  • Get an insight into the real Indonesia, with cultural activities and visiting local villages.
  • See the contrasts in religion and culture between Bali and Lombok.
  • Lombok and the Gili Islands are less frequented than their Balinese neighbour. Stay on the East Coast of Lombok in an area off the tourist trail.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Coral Triangle Center Foundation. Donations help expand their coral restoration project and support their educational outreach activities for local schools in Nusa Penida.

Is this trip right for you?
  • A good level of fitness is essential, as there are a range of physical activities included (cycling from Ubud, hiking Mt Batur, village walks and hikes in Lombok and two snorkelling trips).
  • 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!
  • Bali and Lombok are blessed with fairly consistent temperatures year round, however the rainy season is usually from October through to March. During this time there are generally frequent downpours, although generally these do not last long and the temperatures are usually still warm
  • There are two included snorkelling trips - for confident swimmers this is a great chance to see the sealife
  • Lombok is more conservative than it's Balinese neighbour. Particularly in smaller towns and during village walks, it is best to dress conservatively

Do not hesitate to go on this trip! Bali and Lombok are both beautiful and different from each other in religion, culture, economics and flora. Intrepid takes you to remote, uncrowded places that you would never see on your own. If you are lucky, Yan will be your guide! Highlights included sunrise on Mt. Batur, snorkeling, both islands, being part of a wedding on Lombok, the village home stay and visiting the Sasak village, to name just a few. It was epic.

We attended the Bali and Lombok tour as part of our honeymoon trip and we could not have chosen a better trip to go on. Our tour leader, Yan, was absolutely amazing and made the experience unforgettable. This trip is full of once in a lifetime experiences and immersive culture. Book it!!

An amazing trip! Our guide, Yan, was fantastic. Special highlights included the village homestay, climbing Mount Batur for sunrise, snorkelling and island hopping in Lombok. A lot of lovely places to stay, incredible food and a wonderful group of people to experience it all with. Would highly recommend.

We were lucky enough to have Yan as our group lead around Bali/Lombok/ Gili and this trip was nothing short of spectacular. I recommend this trip for anyone looking to travel and expectation the culture while also having the luxury hotels on the way.

Bali Lombok was an absolutely amazing trip, it FAR exceeded my expectations. Yan was an incredible leader. I feel like I was immersed in Indonesian culture and now have a far better understanding of the people and the place. THANK YOU INTREPID!!!!
