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

This trip is a fantastic way to explore Bali and Lombok. We learned so much about the people and their way of living in such a sustainable way. The tour leader was excellent

We had a wonderful trip to Bali and Lombok with the perfect mix of interesting locations and activities. Our Guide Yan was brilliant and we were lucky to have a fabulous group of different ages and nationalities who were all friendly and enthusiastic. Eating a home cooked banquet on a beach in Lovina, watching the dawn from the top of Mt Batur and snorkelling with sea turtles in Lombok are just a small sample of the many highlights of our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

An incredible trip to Bali, Lombok & The Gili's - A great mix of rural jungle, local villages, lost islands and beautiful sandy beaches. Beautiful weather and friendly people from all over the World. Great activities such as snorkeling with turtles, waterfall excursions, local village walks and bike riding through rice fields.

If you're considering this trip...do it! The experiences are intimate and I got to see local family life and explored off the beaten track away from the tourist traps. The sights and experiences were breathtaking and I would never have seen it all booking alone. The group was the perfect size. This was my first group tour and Im hooked!
