Day 1 Arrive Bali | Transfer to Sanur

Meet your guide and transfer to your hotel in Sanur. This seaside beach town is the first one to be established on the island. The beach is quiet and good for walks; on the distance you can see the Lembongan Island and on a clear morning if you look to the north you might spot the mighty Agung Volcano. It’s the perfect location to start your trip.

Day 2 Sanur

Enjoy a leisurely morning at your resort.
In the evening, visit Sindhu Market with your guide and explore the different flavors of the best local food available. Learn about the staples of Balinesian food, from the sate to the filling bakso soup, it’s a veritable feast in a lively and colorful setting.

Day 3 Travel to Ubud

This morning, depart on a historic and cultural exploration of East and North Bali. Start the day with a drive to Pasar Gianyar. With its stands of local food ranging from the ubiquitous babi guling to the heartier bakso soup, it is a great place to see and meet Balinese people going about their daily lives. Have your camera ready as there are countless good photo opportunities.
Continue to the Mother Temple at Besakih which sits on the slopes of the majestic volcano, Gunung Agung. The Besakih temple and Gunung Agung are among the most sacred places on the island. 
On the way back to Ubud stop at Tirta Empul, a water temple where locals go to take purifying baths in the waters that rush down from the river. The special water or "Tirta" in Balinese is supposed to have healing properties. If you want to partake in the purification ritual, bring a bathing suit and a sarong as well.
After bathing, return to your hotel in Ubud. The rest of the day is yours to relax or to explore the resort.

Day 4 Ubud

First, take the car to Gunung Kawi Temple, which still holds a special place in the life of Hindu people. Walk up the stairs to have a look at the impressive carved shrines. Next, it’s time to hop on your bikes to follow the (mostly downhill) winding roads of the countryside. In the middle of the rice fields find the first woodcarving museum in Bali where artisans still work.
Continue your journey on smaller, unpaved trails that provide beautiful views of the rice fields and organic farms in the area. Visit a small local village for a friendly chat with the people and to see their everyday life. Later on, enjoy fresh coconut while you visit a Balinese artist at work. Finish with a lunch with local Balinese delicacies before going back to the hotel.

Day 5 Onto Munduk

Meet your guide in the morning and head to the world famous Jatiluwih. This World Heritage Site is a living museum showcasing the island's traditional methods of agriculture; where clever land use and cooperative use of water and other resources turns almost-vertical hillsides into lush, 'postcard' rice paddies.

Continue to Bedugul up in the mountains of Bali, with the well-known temple Puru Ulun Danau Bratan. This temple, built in 1663 for the goddess Dewi Danu, is of great importance as the water from Lake Bratan irrigates much of the land south of Bali. Since Bedugul is located on higher attitude the climate is cooler here and there are plenty of stalls on the side of the road selling strawberries. 

Arrive at your hotel in Munduk/Kayuputi later this afternoon.

Day 6 Munduk | Kayuputi

Today, walk through the village of Kayuput and end with a jungle trek to the sparkling and mystical Lake Tamblingan that is surrounded by a local fishing village. Your guide takes you across the lake on a handcrafted canoe to visit an ancient holy temple. On return, take a stroll in the village and stop by the Munduk waterfalls. The remainder of your day is free at your leisure.

Day 7 Beachside in Pemuteran

This morning, meet your guide and head to the fishing village of Pemuteran. Just off coast lies the island of Menjangan, which offers some of Indonesia’s best snorkeling. The island and surrounding coral gardens are part of Bali’s only national park: Bali Barat. Here the endangered Bali sparrow lives. In certain places captured birds are released back in the park. Also in this area you can find the vineyards of Hatten, Bali’s biggest wine-producer. 
Next, stop to visit the Buddhist monastery and hot springs in Banjar. It is 3 kilometers to the twin villages of Dencarik and Banjar. Pass through Dencarik to the neighboring village of Banjar Tegeha, home of the splendid Buddhist Brahma Arama Vihara. This is the residence of Bali’s only Buddhist monk and it plays a central role in Buddhist religious life and education. You have a chance to take a bath at the sacred hot springs 'Air Panas' of Banjar. Later this late afternoon, arrive at your lovely beach resort.

Day 8 Snorkeling Menjangan Island

Just off shore from Pemuteran is Menjangan Island, part of Bali Barat National Park. Take a short boat trip to the island for some spectacular snorkeling. This area has the best snorkeling on the island, with crystal clear waters and colorful corals teeming with tropical fish.
Break for a picnic lunch on the boat. Snorkel and swim this afternoon before returning to the mainland. The late afternoon and evening are free to do as you please.

Day 9 Free Day at Leisure

Enjoy your free day at leisure. Pemuteran is the perfect place to do just that. From its beautiful gardens, pool, and black sand beach, the resort is a haven of relaxation.

Day 10 Southern Bali | Canngu

Time to leave Pemuteran and proceed to the south of Bali. On the way, make a stop at Tanah Lot temple, one of Bali's most spectacular sites.

It is also on the beach so take time to explore and enjoy.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
