Itinerary

Stay at Bintang Bali Resort in Tuban/Kuta area. Beautiful gardens, large beachfront swimming pool and plenty of activities for the kids

Activity Choices: Surfing, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board), Fishing,Catamaran, Sea Kayak, Hydrofoil, Urban Cycle, Wake Boarding at Bali Cable Ski Park.

Choose one activity for the morning and one for the afternoon

You may choose to have dinner at the hotel, otherwise there are numerous restaurants to choose from 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). If your children are 10 or under we recommend the Ayung River option.

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.

14.30: Arrive Villa Jempana 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.

Note: • The minimum age to drive the ATV/Quad Bike is 15 so all under 15’s must ride tandem. • When operated carefully, ATV's/Quad bikes are safe however like any vehicle they can be dangerous if operated carelessly or by those inexperienced operating machinery. Therefore if you have a family member 15+ it may still not be appropriate to self drive if the person has little or no experience operating any types of vehicles. • The operator, Balad, is experienced operating these tours and has selected ATV/Quad Bike routes and operating procedures with safety foremost in mind so please follow their instructions and you should have a great and safe time

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 (leaving at around 5.00am) 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.

10.30 (approximately) Have brunch at Villa Jempana after hike then at about 11.30 drive to Munduk (taking scenic northern route through mountains)

14.30: Arrive 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

Optional rice fields walk or local cycle on your own before sunset

Dinner: Lesong Hotel (included)

Morning Choose between Canyoning or one of the activities listed below.

Canyoning Bali are a very professional, experienced and safe operator that has selected the best river valleys in the Gitgit 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.

We highly recommend the Canyoning experience however please see note below and also be aware that there is a $45/person extra charge for this option.

PLEASE NOTE: whilst Canyoning Bali (the operator) has taken children under 10, most children would need to be at least 10 years old and they’d need to be very adventurous and unafraid of heights to be able to do this. Whilst the abseiling is not difficult, it requires confidence and the ability to descend cliffs up to 15m, sometimes whilst also being hit by water from a waterfall. You know your family and its limitations the best, however if you have young children and are interested in Canyoning, please talk with us and we can jointly have a discussion with Canyoning Bali to come up with the best plan for your family needs.

Note: Canyoning Bali is a 50 minute drive from Lesong Hotel

If you do not want to so Canyoning then please choose between Cycling and Hiking in the Munduk Valley (operated by the Lesong Hotel)

Afternoon: drive to Pemuteran arriving by approximately 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 Stay: Taman Sari Resort nights 4 & 5

Dinner: La Casa Kita Pemuteran (included)

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 with all necessary equipment and dive guide. 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: your choice of hotel or a local restaurant

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:

14:00: Depart Pemuteran 14.00 for Batu Karu Coffee Estate Jatiluwih

16.30: Arrive Batu Karu Coffee Estate and Retreat

Nestled at 1000m on the south easterly slopes of Mount Batukaru, the coffee estate & retreat center are surrounded by protected jungle. The estate is the ideal place to escape from modern living, reconnect with nature, take in the breath taking views of Bali, eat healthy and experience the stylish open air rooms. An unforgettable end to your family getaway.

Dinner at Batu Karu (included)

After breakfast experience the nearby Jatiluwih Terraced Rice Fields walk.

With good reason it’s spectacular well preserved terraced rice fields are a UNESCO world heritage site. There are several trail options available from 1.5km to 5.5km.

Then if your family is feeling up to it, we finish with a 30km Mt Bike ride from Jatiluwih to Tabanan or a 50km option to Canggu. Both rides are gentle with little uphill riding and will take via small roads you through rice paddies and local villages as you head back towards the busier tourist areas of south Bali.

FAQs

You know your family best. The suitable age to undertake an activity will vary for each activity and with the skills, confidence and experience of your child. You should note that Sobek raftings' insurance covers children from 7 years of age. We think 7 is about the right minimum age for most of the activities included here. If you wish to bring younger children, please feel free to contact us to discuss your itinerary and how we can best look after your children.

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.

Please see the detailed Terms and Conditions on the booking page

We pick up and drop off from Tuban, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Kerobokan, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua and Sanur. If you are outside these areas, please discuss with us so that we can work out a plan with you.

Please just let us know so that once your Guide/Driver is no longer needed he/she can drive home

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.
