Brimming with incredible landscapes and super friendly locals, Bali and Lombok are the ideal havens for the nature-loving traveller. On this 12-day active adventure, you’ll go white water rafting just outside of lush Ubud, stroll through rice paddies and small villages on the way to Candidasa, wind your way along the slopes of Mount Agung and climb the mythical route to Lempuyang Temple. Relax on the beach, trek through monkey-filled forests to Mt Rinjani and go snorkelling 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 and get to know the easy going Balinese way of life!

Why you'll love this trip
  • Hike through lush forests as you make the challenging full-day climb to the rim of Mt Rinjani, where spectacular views across Bali, the Gili Islands and Mt Agung reward your efforts.
  • Swim and snorkel among the colourful marine life and friendly sea turtles on a boat trip around the Gili Islands – this paradisical archipelago will steal your heart!
  • Navigate through Class 2 and Class 3 rapids on a whitewater rafting experience just outside of Ubud, against a backdrop of green rainforest, deep gorges and lush rice paddies.
  • Leave the tourist trail in Eastern Bali as you visit the lesser-known temples and villages of Tenganan Village and Pura Luhur Lempuyang. These are golden opportunities to learn about local Balinese culture.
  • Kick back and relax on the remote beaches of Amed and Gili Air with free time under the sun – the perfect places to rest your weary muscles after hiking and biking around Bali.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, World Bicycle Relief. Donations provide school kids, health workers, and farmers in far-out areas with bicycles that provide access to education, healthcare, and income.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is designed for those who love to get active. While prior training may not be necessary, a good 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 2 and 3 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).
  • You will cycle from the hills inland of Candidasa to the coast with a distance of approximately 31 km, which involves some hill climbs and steep descents and some off road sections.
  • 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. The climb involves an ascent of 2000 m and a distance of 9 km in each direction with some steep and dusty sections. Be sure to bring strong, sturdy walking shoes and clothes for cold temperatures and an overnight bag that you’ll need to carry. All camping gear will be carried by porters.
