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.

Overall a very fun and enjoyable trip! The group dynamic was fantastic and I really enjoyed many of the included activities, especially the cycling and volcano climb. I would say however that spending only 1 night in each place did feel a bit rushed and exhausting packing and unpacking. The quality of the hotel rooms also varied from person to person. Additional activities such as the cooking class were also often overlooked due to time restrictions which made many of these options quite redundant as we rarely had time to do them.

Great mix of activities and downtime with Mt. Batur and snorkeling as the highlights. The homestay in Sibetan was very well done and we enjoyed getting to know the people. Our guide, Ima, was friendly, knowledgeable, and facilitated the trip well.

Beautiful Bali trip was my second trip with Intrepid and my favourite trip overall. Bali is a wonderful place but going with a group really allows you to experience and see Bali authentically as well as staying in gorgeous towns and villages - highly recommend
