Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Departure from selected airport

Today you will fly to Bali, the Island of the Gods, with connecting flight(s) on the way.

Day 2: Arrival Bali – Ubud

Upon your arrival at Bali’s international airport, Ngurah Rai, in Denpasar, you go through immigration where you are issued with a free tourist visa. You then pick up your luggage. Your guide will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall, holding up an Asia Tours sign, and you will feel the warm Balinese hospitality immediately. Together with the guide, you will be driven to the hotel in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. Ubud enjoys a central location on the island in the most scenic hilly and lush terrain with rolling green rice fields surrounding the town.

The rest of the day is yours to do as you please, allowing you to relax and get used to the lovely warm climate.

Day 3: Day to do as you please in Ubud

The day is yours to do whatever you please, so there’s plenty of time to acclimatise. Relax by the pool, head into the centre of Ubud or choose one of our extra excursions described below.

Ubud has a whole host of activities to offer and is Bali’s art and culture centre. You can also visit one of Ubud’s most popular attractions, Monkey Forest, which is situated in a conservation area close to the town centre. Go for a walk along the paths in the woods and enjoy the sight of the playful, wild monkeys, which can also be cheeky, so be sure to have any food tucked away in a bag so as not to tempt the monkeys to get too close.

Many artists have established themselves in Ubud with art galleries and small shops selling local handicrafts in silver, wood, glass and ceramic.

Be sure to take a break at one of the town’s many cosy cafés and restaurants.

You will also find a wide selection of fabulous dance performances of the local, dramatic and entertaining Kecak dance, also known as the fire dance, which is performed by male dancers.

Day 4: Visit to and activities in the village of Rumah Desa

Today, you will get right up close to the traditional Balinese culture in the small village of Rumah Desa, located 35 km outside Ubud. Here, you have the opportunity to participate in some of the villagers’ daily activities.

After breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel and head for the unspoilt rolling green landscapes of Tabanan province. Along the way, you will make a stop at the royal temple complex Taman Ayun, which dates back to 1634. The temple is known for its beautiful architecture and large garden landscapes with lotus flowers in the jade-green fish ponds.

Having proceeded to the village of Rumah Desa, you will experience first hand the everyday life and traditions of the Balinese people. On your arrival, you will be greeted by a local host and you will see and hear how the families live, build houses, farm and cook. You will have the opportunity to participate in all the activities yourself if you wish. You will go for a walk through the village with its small houses, temples and scenic, hilly landscape with exotic trees and plants. After around a 15-minute walk, you arrive at the rice fields, where you see how water buffaloes assist with the work in the fields. See how the coconut palms are climbed and how coconut oil is made, and taste a fresh coconut. There will also be time to visit a local school. Back at the village, the locals will serve a lovely Balinese lunch before you head back to Ubud. The drive takes around an hour, and you will be back at the hotel at 4 pm, when the rest of the day is yours to do as you please.

Day 5: Day to do as you please in Ubud
Day 6: Ubud – Tegalalang rice terraces – Tirta Empul water temple – Kintamani – Lovina

Today, you’ll be heading to Bali’s north coast and the child-friendly Lovina beach with its characteristic black volcanic sand. After breakfast and check-out at the hotel, you will be picked up by the guide and driven to Lovina. An array of experiences and several stops await you on the scenic drive. The first stop is at the famous Tegalalang rice terraces, where you will be met by a dazzlingly beautiful sight.

You will then continue to the nearby unique holy water temple in Tampaksiring, Tirta Empul. The Balinese flock here, bringing small offerings and dressed in their beautiful, colourful costumes to be cleansed in the holy springs emanating from the temple. You will experience the Balinese at close quarters and feel the joyful atmosphere that prevails. If you wish, you can take part in the cleansing ceremony and jump in the pool containing the holy water. Children must be at least 145 cm tall to participate in the actual cleansing ceremony.  Please note that during your visit to the temple, you will have to wear a sarong just as in all other temples in Bali.

After enjoying a wonderful experience at the holy water temple, the tour continues through the breathtaking landscapes to the Kintamani Highlands which offer an impressive view of the Batur volcano and the crater lake. After a nice lunch, you will be driven the last part of the journey to Lovina. After check-in at the hotel, the rest of the day is yours to do as you please, so you can relax by the pool or on the beach.

From Lovina beach, you can enjoy the beautiful sunset over the sea, and along the 12 km-long beach, there are a couple of cosy little villages with good restaurants. Peace and quiet reign here, and you have every opportunity to go snorkelling and diving both at the reef off Kalibukbuk and especially on the island of Menjangan.

The actual time spent driving time today is around 3.5 hours.

Day 7: Morning with wild dolphins in Lovina

Bright and early, an unforgettable adventure with wild dolphins awaits. The guide will pick you up at 7 am, and a little further along the beach, you will sail out into the calm waters of the bay in a local outrigger fishing boat.

The dolphins are particularly active in the morning, when they are out looking for food and playfully jumping around in the water as the first few rays of sunlight glisten on the deep blue sea. Five different types of dolphins live in Lovina Bay in pods of from 10–12 up to more than a hundred. It’s a stunning sight to see them swim through the water at the speed of lightning, only to shoot up out of the water and turn somersaults or corkscrew in mid-air. The dolphins in Lovina Bay are wild animals, but you are in with a 95% chance of seeing them. Sometimes there are only a few pods out there, and other times, many.

Back at the hotel, breakfast is served and then the rest of the day is yours to do whatever you please. You can also choose to purchase one of our extra excursions.

Day 8: Day to do as you please in Ubud

Today, there is nothing planned on the itinerary, so you are free to choose whether you want to relax by the pool or on the beach or go on one of our extra excursions.

You could also head into Singaraja, which is the main town in the area, just 9 km from the hotel. Not many tourists come here, so you can enjoy an authentic experience in the streets, several of which are adorned with avenues of trees and buildings dating back to the Dutch colonial era.

Day 9: Lovina – Sanur

Enjoy the morning in peace and quiet before checking out from the hotel at noon, when you will be picked up by the guide and begin the journey to your beach holiday in Sanur. Along the way, you will pass unique landscapes with fantastic scenery at the Twin Lakes, Tamblingan and Buyan. The lakes are surrounded by dense rainforest in the lush, unspoilt Balinese highlands at Munduk. They were once one big lake, but in around 1800, a landslide split the lake into two, and they are now separated by a ridge of almost 2 km. In the afternoon, after 4–5-hour drive, you will arrive at the hotel in the seaside resort of Sanur, where you can relax for the rest of the day.

Sanur is a cosy, peaceful seaside resort, located on the 5 km-long golden sandy beach. The kids can romp about on the wide beach and in the calm sea, as the waves break on the coral reef further out. The lovely beach promenade is made for a stroll among the small stalls, green palms and with a view of the small, nicely painted, colourful fishing boats. An array of small shops, cafés and restaurants lines the main street, and in the small side streets, you can experience the local life among the small houses and temples of the Balinese.

Days 10-12: Sanur
Day 13: Homeward bound

Today, the time has come to say goodbye to breathtaking Bali. After check-out, you will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the airport in Denpasar, From here, you will fly back to Europe, with connecting flight(s) on the way.

Beach holiday extension at Nusa Lembongan, 3 nights

Nusa Lembongan is a small, tropical paradise island of just 8 km² and just 45 minutes from Bali by sea. Here you can bring down the pace and just enjoy the golden sandy beaches, the crystal-clear water, swaying palm trees and wild nature with cactuses and rock formations. The island is also known for its great snorkelling and diving opportunities. There are only a few cars on the small island, so getting around by bicycle is the easiest.

The majority of the north-eastern section of the island is covered in mangrove, which serves an important role in the ecosystem of the area and helps give life to the many corals. You can go on a quiet boat ride through the mangroves in either a kayak or a small boat.

Many of the island’s inhabitants sustain themselves by growing seaweed. When the tides go out, the seaweed fields appear, and you will see farmers stream out to pick it.

You can extend the beach holiday with additional nights, just as you please.

Beach holiday extension to Gili Trawangan, 4 nights

If you wish to conclude your holiday with a stay on a perfect paradise island, then Gili Trawangan is an excellent choice. Gili Trawangan is one of the three Gili islands – and the most popular. There are no cars on the island, so getting about is on two feet, two wheels or perhaps a horse-drawn carriage. During the day, the atmosphere on the island is relaxed, with things livening up in the evening at the numerous small restaurants and bars around the island. The days are spent on the long, white beaches or in the clear water. Gili has the reputation of being one of the best places to dive in Indonesia.

Note that on this extension, you will spend 3 nights at Gili Trawangan and 1 night in Sanur.

When travelling between Bali and Gili, you should be aware that the Lombok Strait can be choppy in the months of June/July and January/February. If the weather is unsuitable for sailing, the ferry will be cancelled for safety reasons. This generally happens once or twice a year and usually lasts for about one to two days at a time. If the ferry is cancelled, we will of course find the best possible solution and alternative for you.
