Day 1: Kuta
Selamat Datang di Bali! That’s 'welcome to Bali' in Bahasa Indonesian for those who didn’t know. Today you will be picked up from Denpasar airport, where your group leader will meet you and take you to our hotel in Kuta. Check-in out of the way the rest of the day is yours, so you can relax by the pool, at the beach or head out to explore Kuta itself. Tonight we will all get together for a group welcome dinner and drinks so you can get acquainted.
Day 2: Kuta
Keep calm and go to the beach! That’s the motto for day two as we head first to the stunning view point that is Uluwatu Temple. Then we drive back up the coastline to Kuta Beach for surf lessons led by our laidback local surf instructors. After we hit the waves, you have time to relax at the beach for more fun in the sun, time to try a traditional Balinese massage or even do some shopping. Tonight we get ready to enjoy the nightlife that Kuta is famous for!
Day 3: Ubud
Now you’ve got to know your group it’s time to get accustomed with the culture of Bali. Today we visit the magnificent Tanah Lot temple which is set on a rock formation in the sea before heading to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud, made popular by the movie 'Eat Pray Love'. Once we arrive we will stop off to visit the “little locals” at the Monkey Forest. Then it’s time to explore the local markets as we take an evening to just chill out after a busy few days.
Day 4: Ubud
Today we set off for coffee at the local plantation where you can see how this delicious but peculiar coffee is made (you will be very surprised!). We’ll then have lunch overlooking an active volcano and spend the rest of afternoon wandering around the famous rice terraces of Ubud.
Day 5: Ubud
This morning we head to a local primary school for the unique opportunity to spend time in class with the local kids. Afterwards, we’ll cool off with a dip in a stunning natural waterfall and then it’s time to relax by the pool before enjoying dinner with the group.
Day 6: Gili T
Let’s explore the islands! We board a boat to the picturesque island of Gili Trawangan and settle into our beachside accommodation before getting on the only mode of transport available on the island (pushbike) to cycle around, see the sights and marvel at an amazing sunset! Then in the evening, it’s time to party… island style!

On our second day in Gili T, we spend the day island hopping – heading to some of the best snorkelling spots in Indonesia.
