Brimming with incredible landscapes and extraordinary diversity, Bali and Lombok are perfect havens for curious, active travellers. 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.

Really wonderful trip. A fun and physically challenging itinerary that's also well balanced with time to delve into the culture of Indonesia and some relaxation too. You'll also have the pleasure of a lovely guide named Andy.

This trip was the best thing I ever done for myself. I recently went through a painful divorce so this was my way of rediscovering myself. Everything on this trip was everything I didn't know I needed. My self-esteem, self-beliefs, and overall mental health were at risk but after this trip, I found myself again. Thanks to Mt. Rinjani!
