Get the lowdown on Bali’s beautiful neighbour on an eight-day tropical escapade in Lombok. Spend time in rural communities, meet lots of locals and discover the fascinating Sasak culture. From the sandy shores of Sanur, the laidback vibes of Labuan Pandan and the idyllic Gili, you’ll be lazing beachside in no time on one of Indonesia’s most pristine islands. With all of the organising taken care of, just sit back, relax and revel in the crystal-clear waters of the Bali Sea, the array of fresh seafood on offer and the friendliness of the locals as they welcome you to their slice of paradise.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Stay on the often-overlooked east coast of Lombok with some time spent in Labuan Pandan, taking a snorkelling trip, and enjoying a secluded island lunch and sumptuous seafood barbecue dinner.
  • Support the island’s communities during your time in Senaru by embarking on a tour run by passionate local women who are developing skills in tourism.
  • Explore Lombok by visiting the Masbagik pottery village, Tetebatu and Senaru, which will all give you a true insight into local customs and culture – as well as the delicious local food – of the island.
  • The Gili Islands may just be some of the most stunning stretches of sand you’ve come across. Relax on the shores of Gili Air, taking the day at your own pace – swimming, snorkelling, eating and repeating.
  • Begin your island jaunt with a night in Sanur on Bali’s east coast. This beachside haven has all of the ingredients for a relaxing stay, so why not consider extending your time here before your Lombok adventure?
  • 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?
  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments. Lombok is more conservative than Bali, so it's best to dress conservatively while you're there, particularly in smaller towns and during village walks.
  • Walking in the villages of Tetebatu and Senaru is on relatively flat ground; however, the terrain between villages and in the hills can be steep and, at times, slippery or muddy. On our waterfall walk from Senaru you will need to walk through a running stream. Footwear with good grip that can get wet is ideal.
  • The snorkelling trip off the east coast of Lombok is a great chance to witness the sealife, but bear in mind you'll need to be a confident swimmer to partake in this activity.
  • Our accommodation on the east coast of Lombok is remote, and away from the main town. Our simple bungalows and beachside location allow a great chance to unwind and enjoy the slow pace in this slice of paradise.
  • You may also want to check out our Bali & Lombok Adventure (TISBC) if you have longer time to explore in country.

Our tour leader, Ell (Jielly), was fantastic. He created such a welcoming environment for all of us, went out of his way to make sure we were having fun and feeling good, and was so generous in sharing his stories and connections with us. I'm so pleased to have made a new friend in Ell! The tour itself was great, so wonderful to see another side of Indonesia away from the hustle and bustle of Bali. A trip I will remember fondly forever

Travelling around Bali and Lombok with Intrepid was easily the best experience of my life. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and was able to learn so much about Indonesian culture, and enjoyed so many once in a lifetime experiences that I would have never been able to do travelling alone or with friends. Furthermore, I felt incredibly fulfilled that I was able to support local communities and projects led by the Intrepid team that are actually making a change in people's lives. Cannot recommend enough!

Discover Lombok was an amazing tour and one that I would highly recommend to others. There was a great mix of cultural activities, delicious food, snorkelling and exploring. Highlight was definitely the waterfall swim and the snorkelling day. Our tour guide Mochi was amazing. Every day she greeted us with a smile, she was organised and helpful with assisting with booking things. I met some incredible people who I feel will become lifelong friends. Can't wait for my next intrepid trip!

After doing both the Bali and Lombok tours it was amazing to see the unique culture of these islands from wedding processions to fire dances, while doing amazing activities like snorkelling and hiking.

This was the best trip (and we’ve been on many) that my wife and I have been on. Everything is planned out and organized so no time was spent by us figuring out travel, accommodations, or meals. We were able to see so much of Bali, Lombok, and Gili Air. We learned so much about the people and culture. The excursions were world class and our guide helped make our trip unforgettable.
