Tone it down then turn it up on this Balinese adventure from Ubud through to Seminyak.
From the patchouli-infused spiritual digs of Ubud and Seminyak’s beach clubs to traipsing up a volcano in Mt Batur and island life on Gili Trawangan, see the best bits of Bali by bus, boat, bike and, errr, foot. Cycle through rice paddies, snorkel over reefs, snap a few sunsets, hike some mountains then throw down some beers.
Some of our under-30 travellers prefer to get around with people their own age. If that’s you, you’re in the right place!
Over 29? We’ve got over 900 other great adventures to choose from for solo travellers, friends, families, food lovers, hiking enthusiasts, and more.
Float in the ocean, bake on the beach, and conquer a volcano: the island landscapes of Bali and Gili are epic.
Make like a sponge and soak up every drop of Ubud's relaxed atmosphere. A walk among the bright green rice fields is as Bali as it gets.
There's nothing like waking up at three in the morning to climb a mountain, eh? The active volcano of Mt Batur is worth every minute of sleep you lose.
Swing life away on Gili Trawangan, an island paradise that incorporates the best of both its neighbours with superb snorkelling and a social scene to match.
Bali can be extremely hot and humid. It’s important to prepare for hot sticky temperatures during the day and sometimes cooler climates in the evening. Layers are the best way to tackle this disparity in weather.
On Day 4 there's a steep uphill climb of Mount Batur, starting very early in the morning at 3 am. The climb takes around two hours and requires a good level of fitness.
This trip affords lots of free time so that you're able to experience Bali the way you imagined. If you're in need of optional activities, your leader will be on hand to help.
