EARLY BIRD

As this adventure is departing within 30 days, we will need to confirm your place with our local team. Book now to secure your place but please do not book your international flights until we contact you. Your payment will be held during the process, but not taken until your place is confirmed. We’ll aim to get back to you within 3 working days.

About your trip

White-sand beaches, ornate temples and mysterious shipwrecks; Bali and its surrounding islands offer the perfect backdrop for your next adventure.

This 12-day escape to the Island of the Gods will see you hike a live volcano at sunrise, trek through the misty valleys of Ubud, wild swim a secret waterfall and bathe in the sacred waters of Tirta Empul.

Factor in the shipwreck snorkelling and desert island living, and you’ve experienced a rich taste of Indonesia in less than a fortnight.

Itinerary

Your Itinerary

  • Day 01 Hello, Bali

    Card image

    Welcome to Bali, an island celebrated the world over for its beaches, pristine rainforest and blooming biodiversity. Touch down before 3pm, then you’ll be swiftly transferred to your hotel in Legian. Get to know your fellow travellers over a refreshing cocktail (starfruit and citrus flavours are prime ingredients), before catching a spectacular Balinese sunset.

  • Day 02 Flying yoga & local cuisine

    Card image

    This morning will see you travel an hour north to Ubud. Cultured and bohemian, this Balinese town is a creative hub where you’ll find artists and craftspeople trading their skills against a backdrop of misty hills. Fittingly, it’s here that you’ll learn the ropes of flying yoga (literally), as your instructor leads you through a series of stretches while dangling from the ceiling. Come evening, roll your sleeves up in a Balinese cooking class in a community village kitchen, transforming fresh local ingredients into tasty dishes.

  • Day 03 Trekking and temple bathing

    Card image

    Start the day with an invigorating hike through Ubud’s misty jungle valleys. Traverse steep ravines and dense thickets, before the pathways open up onto an expanse of rice paddies. Having worked up a sweat, you’ll cool off in the sacred pools of Tirta Empul Water Temple. Participate in the medieval tradition of ritual bathing in one of Bali’s most sacred garden temples.

  • Day 04 Wild swimming in a secret waterfall

    Card image

    Head up into the Bedugul Highlands with your fellow travellers and expert guide, descending through the jungle for 500 metres or so. Eventually, the trees will part to reveal the flowing streams of a secret waterfall – the perfect spot for a refreshing dip. After a light swim, tuck into a jungle picnic (served the best way: on banana leaves), before spending the rest of the afternoon bathing and relaxing by the water.

  • Day 05 Floating temples and hot spring bathing

    Card image

    This morning, you’ll visit Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, a 17th century Hindu water temple built in honour of a lake goddess. Spread out across a series of small islands, the temple appears to float on the surface of Danau Bratan, a volcanic lake. You’ll then make your way to the caldera of Mount Batur, where the natural hot springs of Toya Devasya await you. Sink into the mineral-rich waters of the infinity pool, against the backdrop of Lake Batur. Your hotel for the night is a touch more basic than our usual standards, but we’ll only be staying here a short while before embarking on a (very) early morning trek.

  • Day 06 A volcanic sunrise trek

    Card image

    Rise and shine for a 2am start as you embark with your group on a sunrise trek up Mount Batur – one of Bali’s most sacred mountains. With cool mountain air and starlit skies, the pre-dawn walk is a special experience. It will take you around three hours to reach the volcanic summit, where you’ll arrive in time to celebrate together beneath a sky alight with orange, pink and lavender streaks. Back down on ground level, a prosecco breakfast awaits you – some guilt-free indulgence is in order. Enjoy a slow morning, before departing for Amed, a series of fishing villages tucked away on Bali’s east coast.

  • Day 07 Shipwreck snorkelling

    Card image

    Make the most of a lazy morning at your beachside villa, with plenty of opportunity for yoga, hiking and swimming. Later, you’ll encounter the rich marine life that Bali is famed for, with a spot of snorkelling around a WWII shipwreck. The ship has been beached off Bali ever since it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1942, with its remains now sustaining a local ecosystem. Head under, admire the beautiful reefs and species of wildlife – you’ll feel as though you’re on another planet.

  • Day 08 An island escape

    Card image

    This morning, hop on a boat that will take you across to Gili Air, one of three tiny coral isles on an archipelago off the northwest coast of Lombok. With no cars on the island, rent a bike or simply walk your way around – the entire island takes half a day to traverse. Spend the rest of the day savouring the pristine beauty of the coast, before gathering with your group for a cold beer as twilight settles in.

  • Day 09 Desert island dreams

    Card image

    We’ve left today for you to explore things at your own pace: no activities, no agenda, just free time to explore your very own island paradise. For a true escape, hunt down a hammock on the beaches of Gili Air’s remote northern coastline. While away the hours in the company of a good book, or take a leisurely swim in the tropical sea.

  • Day 10 Beach chilling & sunset cocktails

    Card image

    On the penultimate day of our trip, enjoy a relaxed morning on Gili Air before we return to the mainland via ferry. From here, it’s back to the starting point of your Bali adventure – Legian. The evening here is free to do as you please, whether that’s relaxing by the hotel pool or heading down to the beach for sunset cocktails with your group.

  • Day 11 Adventures by VW

    Card image

    Relish your final morning on the beach, with a few long hours to soak up the sea and sun. In the afternoon, hop on a fleet of VW campervans, driving to a remote riverside temple for a Balinese blessing – a little piece of Bali’s spirituality to take home with you. Experience this ancient ritual with a local priest, before tucking into a farewell feast at a seafront restaurant.

  • Day 12 Farewell Bali

    Card image

    After breakfast at the hotel, your Bali adventure has come to an end. It’s over to you to organise your taxi to the airport and depart in your own time. If you feel like exploring Indonesia further, see how you can extend your adventure with our trip to Komodo & Flores.

Important Notes

  • Fly into and out of Denpasar International Airport (DPS).

  • Please try to arrive before 4pm on day 1 if you can, and you’re free to leave anytime you want to on day 12.

  • The hotel at Mount Batur is basic and not up to usual Flash Pack standards. However it’s the only option in the area and we stay there for a very short time before the sunrise trek.

  • Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control – but we’ll always do our best to ensure it has little impact on your experience. From time to time, we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh and exciting.
