Discover the gems of Bali and Lombok on this exhilirating Indonesian adventure

Go white water rafting outside Ubud, stroll through rice paddies and quaint villages en route to Candidasa, wind your way along the slopes of Mount Agung to the beach, climb the mythical route to Lempuyang Temple, trek through monkey-filled forest to Mt Rinjani, and snorkel in search of sea turtles in the remote Gili Islands. Learn about Balinese cultures and traditions along the way, from Hindu temples to old-fashioned blacksmithing. With a healthy dose of beachside chill-time thrown in, this Bali and Lombok adventure strikes the perfect balance.

This trip is designed for those who love to get active. While prior training may not be necessary, a moderate level of fitness will help you to get the most out of the activities on this trip.
The white water rafting excursion just outside Ubud (Day 2), involves grade II and III rapids, so a level of confidence in the water is essential. Similarly, you'll need to be a confident swimmer for the Gili Islands snorkelling trip (Day 11).
Cycling the beautiful coastal route to Amed (Day 5) involves hills, twists and turns, and will cover up to 35 kilometres. Rest assured a support vehicle is there if you need it.
Be prepared for a few nights without hot showers - hot water can sometimes be unreliable at some destinations!
The hike to the Mt Rinjari crater is demanding and can vary a great deal depending on the weather. Be sure to bring strong, sturdy walking shoes and clothes for cold temperatures. All camping gear will be carried by porters.

This was an excellent trip and most activities were thoroughly enjoyable (from the white water rafting, which I had never done before, through to the cycling and the challenging but extremely worthwhile mountain climb). Ending on the Gilis was great too and gave the perfect relaxing end to the holiday. Definitely recommended.

Great alternative to the typical "lazy" Bali trips offered by Intrepid. The bike ride has a few tough hill climbs if you don't ride often and the Mt. Rinjani trek (accurately described as "no joke" by our leader beforehand) is a great balance of challenging and rewarding. Consider extra warm/dry clothes for the top and a rain cover for your pack mandatory for Mt. Rinjani. Leisure days are included after the more challenging activities and were found most welcome by our group.
