Itinerary

Your first day is in South Bali with a wide range of activities to choose from, one activity for the morning and one for the afternoon

You activity options are: • Surfing lesson on Kuta Beach • SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) lesson in Jimbaran Bay • Sea Kayak & Catamaran in Sanur • Fishing from a local Balinese fishing boat known as a Jukung • Wakeboarding/Water Skiing at Bali Cable Ski Park • Urban cycle

Note: Couples, families and groups please make the same selections

Your first night is at the Bintang Bali Resort right on the beachfront in Tuban, just a short walk from Kuta beach. Highlights of the Bintang Bali Resort are its gorgeous & extensive gardens and lawns, large swimming pool, beachfront restaurant and all the other room and recreational facilities you would expect of a 4 start resort.

Dinner: you may choose to have dinner at the resort, otherwise there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance.

0730 Depart Bali Bintang Hotel to arrive at Rafting start points by 0930

Choose between Rafting the easier Ayung River (Grade 2-3 grade rapids) OR the more challenging Telaga Waja river (Grade 3-4 rapids)

Both rivers take you through some of the most stunning scenery in Bali with towering waterfalls, high cliffs and lush river valleys along with exhilarating rapids and some calming flat water sections.

Note: the lower number or Grade, the easier the rapids. Both rivers have some exciting sections for those who have not rafted much (or at all).

Lunch is included with your rafting.

12.30-13.00 Drive to Villa Jempana. As we come to the top of the caldera outer rim at Kintamani you will be met by a view that you will never forget as you first look out over Mt Batur, Lake Batur, the lava flows, villages within the caledra and towering mountains in the distance, including the mother of all Bali’s mountains, Mt Agung

The drive time is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes from Ayung river and from Tela Waja.

14.30 Villa Jempana provides the ideal lakeside location with easy access to your activities, large comfortable rooms, swimming pool and restaurant .

16.00-17.30 Get ready for some excitement as you explore the trails and lower slopes of Mt Batur on an ATV/Quad bike. We think this is by far the best location for Quad Biking in Bali.

Dinner: Villa Jempana (included)

Morning: Hike Mt Batur Volcano within the Kintamani Caldera. With good reason, this is the most popular hike in Bali and can easily be done with a moderate level of fitness. If the skies are clear, you will have unforgettable views of the caldera, lava flows from eruptions back in the early 1960’s, Lake Batur & Bali’s biggest mountain, Mt Agung.

Note: Guests can choose to do the early sunrise hike or get up a little later and do the hike around 7.30-8.00.

If the sunrise is not important to you, we like the later hike as most of the other hikers have finished by then or on their way back down the mountain.

If you choose the early hike you can have brunch back at Villa Jempana as part of your package.

If you have breakfast and then hike, you can find somewhere on the way to Munduk for lunch

12.00 Drive to Munduk. We will take the scenic mountain route to north which takes about 2 hours 40 minutes, arriving by about 14.30

15.30-16.00 If you’re still feeling energetic then choose between a rice fields walk or go for a Mt Bike ride. Both start from the Lesong hotel and are led by a local guide who can show you all the best places and introduce you to the local way of life.

Stay at: Lesong Hotel. Lesong Hotel is tucked away in a quiet village of the Munduk Valley in north central Bali. This area has exquisite views to the west of Bali and is a place few tourists visit. With its comfortable rooms, friendly staff and peaceful ambience we are sure you will appreciate the tranquillity of a night at Lesong

Dinner: Lesong Hotel (included)

Morning:

Choose between: Canyoning (departing 0700 from Lesong) OR Cycling OR Hiking in the Munduk area

We highly recommend that you select Canyoning as your activity.

We use Canyoning Bali to run this activity. They are a very professional, experienced and safe operator that has selected the best river valleys in the Gigit area of north Bali. If you are not clear what Canyoning is, it’s the process of moving through the natural environment of a Canyon using various methods including walking, rappelling (abseiling) jumping, swimming, scrambling and sliding.

It's great fun, sometimes a challenge and puts you in close contact with your natural environment.

Afternoon: drive to Taman Sari Resort at Pemuteran, arriving by 14.00

Our hotels are often chosen for their beautiful tropical gardens, open space and beachside location. Taman Sari is another of these resorts with classic Balinese thatched roof accommodation, restaurants and bars, we are sure you will love it.

For the late afternoon, relax, swim, snorkel at front of hotel, enjoy a sunset drink.

Also remember that your driver/guide is there for you if there is something else in the area you want to do

You will be staying at Taman Sari Resort nights 4 & 5

You may choose to have dinner at Taman sari or to visit one of the nearby restaurants

Morning: Snorkeling Menjangan Island, one of the best dive sites in Bali with spectacular reefs and lots of interesting marine life. A boat will transfer you to the island. Simple lunch included.

Late Afternoon: Hike the unspoilt hills behind Pemuteran with stunning views of the west coast mountain range to the south and the Bali Sea to the north. This hike is approximately one hour return and is a great way to end the day before you settle in to your sunset drinks back at Taman Sari Resort.

Dinner at: La Casa Kita. An Italian restaurant with a good vibe and music on some nights, It is about a 5 minute walk from Taman Sari (Included)

Morning : If you can’t get enough of snorkeling then we can arrange further snorkeling trips for the morning nearby, otherwise you may like to do a brief snorkel in front of the hotel and to choose another activity option for the morning:

FAQs

Wherever possible we require a minimum 2 weeks notice to book your chosen activities. We will be in contact with you once you book to ask you about your choices so we can arrange everything for you. If your booking is within 2 weeks then rest assured, we will get things organised.

No, your booking is just for you and whoever else you have booked with. The guide/driver is 100% yours and at your service. Some of your activities will be just you whilst some you will be joining other people who have also booked the same activity that day.

If there are things you would like to change, please contact us before booking and we will personalise an itinerary to suit your personal requirements.

We believe a great holiday is one that is not too over organised and we definitely don't want you to feel like you have to do anything. We will be as accommodating as possible. If you don't want to do something, or want to spend more or less time somewhere, please discuss with your guide. Please remember that our providers will have been paid to deliver your chosen services so no refund will be available. Also please remember people may be waiting for you, so if you decide not to participate in something, please advise your guide as soon as possible so that he/she can contact the appropriate people.

Yes you should always have Travel Insurance to cover the activities you are doing on your Active Break

You will be doing a range of activities which will require you to have a few things handy and you will be in different environments that may be hot, cool and/or raining. A few suggestions of things to bring are: a good pair of walking shoes, flip flops (sandals), swimming gear, sunscreen, hat, rain jacket, one long sleeved shirt and/or jacket in case its cool in the mountains, mosquito repellent, waterproof casing for phone/camera

Sometimes an activity provider will be forced to cancel an activity where the conditions are unsuitable/unsafe to proceed with the activity. For example, sometimes when river levels get too high, it becomes unsuitable to go rafting or canyoning If an activity is cancelled, we will do our best to either re-program the activity (wherever possible) or offer an alternative activity but please remember that these situations are outside of our control and part of the risk of planning outdoor activities.
