Discover Beautiful Bali with Katie

$1,999  USD


With its mystical allure and tropical charm, Bali beckons travelers from around the globe to immerse themselves in its beauty. Hosted by Katie, this 10-day adventure begins in the cultural heart of the island, Ubud, where we will explore emerald rice terraces, sacred temples, waterfalls, the famous Monkey Forest and more. Here, amidst the tranquil rhythm of village life, travelers can indulge in yoga and massage, traditional Balinese dance performances, and artisanal craft markets, all while soaking in the serene ambiance of this spiritual sanctuary.

From Ubud, the expedition ventures beyond the mainland to Nusa Penida island, a paradise of epic cliffs and pristine beaches. We’ll enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of natural wonders such as Kelingking Beach, where towering limestone cliffs plunge into turquoise waters below, explore hidden coves, and snorkel amidst vibrant coral reefs and (if we’re lucky) graceful Manta Rays.

The trip then moves to Kuta, with its festive ambience, famous long surf beaches, street food, markets and vibrant nightlife. Whilst this itinerary is packed full of amazing activities, you’ll still have plenty of time to either relax or explore this beautiful destination further at your own pace.

Katie Clark

Hi, I’m Katie. I’ve been a Registered Nurse for 17 years. After years of working overtime in the ER, to the point of burn out, always looking forward to that next trip to escape, I decided I needed to make a change. I knew I needed more balance in my life. I decided to create a life I didn’t feel the need to escape from.

I’ve always been passionate about travel and I started solo traveling off and on when I was just 18 years old. I love sharing my travel experiences with others through social media and by hosting group trips. Back in 2018 I planned my first group trip to Italy and I gained a talent for creating meaningful itineraries for small groups. My favorite part of this journey has been empowering other solo travelers to get out and see the world! Life is short. Take the trip!
