Why you'll love this trip
  • This trip will immerse you in Balinese culture; you'll eat street food, meet songket weavers, witness a traditional Kecak dance performance and visit a Hindu-Buddhist island temple.
  • A guided hike to the summit of Mt Batur will provide you with dazzling sunrise vistas that stretch across the Lombok Strait, all the way over to the peaks of Mt Rinjani.
  • The lovely, peaceful village of Undisan is nestled in the lush Balinese hills. This is the perfect place to escape the tourists, and the heat!
  • Ubud is the artistic and cultural heart of Bali, enjoy a guided walk through the lush green surrounds and gain an insight into daily village life.
  • With hiking, cycling and snorkelling, this trip is steeped in outdoor activities. But there's also plenty of time to relax; bathe in hot springs or laze on the beach.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about 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. Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Is this trip right for you?
  • A good level of fitness is essential, as there are a number of physical activities included (cycling from Ubud, walking up Mt Batur at sunrise and snorkelling in Bali Barat National Park).
  • 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!
  • We visit villages and small towns on this trip, where life is more conservative than in the tourist areas. You will need to bring clothes that allow your shoulders and knees to be covered for both men & women. At some hot springs you will need to wear a t-shirt and shorts over your swimwear.
  • Bali is blessed with a consistent climate for most of the year. However, the rainy season (usually October–March) brings frequent downpours. The good news is that these rainy bursts don't last long, and it is usually still warm.
  • You may also want to check out our Bali & Lombok Adventue (TISBC) or our Java & Bali Explorer (TISJC) if you have longer time to explore in region.

Our local tour leader, Wayan, was absolutely AMAZING!!!!! I booked this trip last minute and had absolutely NO expectations. I was honestly convinced by the summary and did not read through the full itinerary and was shocked at how many activities were involved, but it was all well paced and very organized. The accommodations were great and kept getting better and better as we traveled around the island. Definitely bring some good hiking boots, the Mt Batur hike is stunning and snorkeling in the bluest waters I have ever seen was a dream!! The locals in Bali are such warm and friendly people and can't forget their food! Every meal was so fresh and delicious, they had many vegetarian options for myself and a couple others in our group. Again it was because of our leader, Wayan, that the trip so enjoyable. He was very kind, knowledgeable and always went out of his way to make sure the group was happy and safe (most importantly). This was my first solo international trip traveling from the US and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is considering it... Just do it!!!! You won't regret it :)

I did this tour last year by myself and again this year with my wife because I enjoyed it so much. The itinerary was similar and both tours made me feel like it was an inaugural trip for Intrepid. I like their approach and the genuine enthusiasm of the leaders. And I liked the conservative and safe drivers. I would recommend the trip.

This trip Beautiful Bali is ideal for travellers. Tourists won't leave beaches and bars of Kuta and Seminak etc. If you want to see and experience the authentic Bali this is the trip for you. The real Bali is deeply spiritual away from the tourist areas. Highly recommended
