Today is a free day to explore the temples, wander through the rice paddy fields or visit the famous art and craft markets in the town centre. Maybe get up early and start your day with a yoga class, then use your free time to join in on some fun optional activities like a cycling tour, white-water rafting or a cooking class.

Day 3 / Tuesday August 6th 2024 Mt Batur

Depart Ubud for Batur this morning, visiting the Tirta Empul Water Temple along the way. Tirta Empul, translating to holy water spring, was built in the 10th century as a place of ritual purification for Balinese Hindus and is still very much in use. This is the real deal, and you’ll see the local Balinese come here to bathe in the pools and purify themselves under the waterspouts. Next, head to the stunning rice terraces at Tegalalang to take a stroll. This is a great spot to take that perfect photo of beautiful Bali. When you arrive in Batur, you might want to rest, relax and
recharge, ready for a jam-packed day tomorrow.

Your accommodation at the base of Mt Batur is a basic hotel with a restaurant. This is an excellent location to start tomorrow’s early morning trek without extra travelling time.

Day 4 / Wednesday August 7th 2024 Mt Batur & Candidasa

Rise and shine early birds (at 3 am!) – it’s time for a good ol’ fashioned crater hike. At 1717 m high, Mt Batur sits inside a spectacular caldera along with Lake Batur. The lake supports the local fishing industry, while many villagers work as guides for the volcano climb. It’s important to note that this climb takes around 1.5 to 2 hours, and since it’s all uphill, a decent level of fitness is required to enjoy it fully. You’ll be just in time to witness the sunrise over the valleys
of Bali!

On a clear morning, it’s possible to see all the way across the Lombok Strait to the peaks of Mt Rinjani. After descending the volcano, there may be an option to soak in hot springs with great views over the lake and caldera.

Later in the afternoon, head southwest to beachside Candidasa. When you arrive, maybe chill out by the beach and let your muscles rest after your glorious hike.

Special Information

The summit trail starts easily and then climbs steeply with switchbacks over volcanic rocks and gravel. The path can be slippery, particularly after rain, so good shoes are essential. Please bring your headtorch and a warm layer to wear at the summit. The climb may be cancelled during heavy rain and unsafe conditions.

Day 5 / Thursday August 8th 2024 Gili Trawangan

Drive to Padangbai this morning and jump on a speedboat to Gili Trawangan, or Gili T – the Goldilocks of the three Gili islands, striking the perfect balance between Gili Air’s hippie vibe and Gili Meno’s low-key honeymoon atmosphere. Check in to your resort, then begin exploring on two wheels during a cycling orientation tour with your leader.

Get insider island info on the best places to watch the sunset and the best beaches to soak up the salt air. Luckily for you, you’ll get access to the resort’s bicycles for the duration of your stay, so getting from A to B will be a peddle-powered breeze. After your cycling tour, spend the rest of the night however you like, just remember that bare feet are the basis of the dress code.

Day 6 / Friday August 9th 2024 Gili Trawangan

Enjoy a free day on Gili T. Why not join an optional cooking or yoga class, or go snorkelling in the unbelievably clear waters? You could even head out on a motorised wooden boat around the Gili Islands, jumping straight off the boat and coming face-to-face with marine life, including colourful fish, coral reefs and, of course, sea turtles. The Gili Islands are a famous snorkelling destination and probably the best spot in Southeast Asia for turtle-spotting! If
you’d prefer, just kick back with a cocktail and do nothing!

You could also grab a bike and go for another ride – all three of the Gili Islands are tiny, but it’ll still sound pretty cool when you tell your friends that you circumnavigated an island on wheels!
