Tumbling Rice Paddies of Ubud
Ubud is the bohemian centre of Bali, an atmospheric world of small artist studios, yoga schools, restaurants and cafes. Spend two nights ambling amongst the rice terraces that flow down the hills and into the valleys like rich green waterfalls. Watch daily life unfold in authentic villages, learn about coffee production and soak up the inspiring spirit of the place.
Trek to rainbow crater lakes, explore bamboo forests and meet the local tribespeople of remote Flores. Soak in natural hot springs and scale smoking volcanoes. While it’s short on tourists, it’s big on scenery and mystical atmosphere. Learn about timeless tribal rituals and laze on volcanic beaches.
Over five days, you’ll travel from the east to the west of Flores, meaning ‘The Cape of Flowers’. It’s a rustic adventure with staggering landscapes and eye-opening local traditions. The island is home to a number of ethnic groups still living in partial isolation, as well as endless spice plantations, cascading rice paddies and flower-filled valleys.
In Search of the Dragon
Seek out giant Komodo dragons on the mystical islands of Rinca and Komodo. Following your guide, you’ll set out on foot to find the largest reptile on the planet, so keep your eyes peeled at all times. Staying on nearby Flores, you’ll take a boat trip to Komodo and Rinca, tiny islands topped with forested hills and packed with astounding wildlife.
Seafood and Sunshine
Pull up a seat at a rickety seafood warung for a blazing Balinese sunset on Jimbaran, a crescent bay with gentle surf, local markets and real character. South of the hedonistic beaches of Kuta, Jimbaran has a relaxed vibe, sizzling seafood grills and some of the best sunsets in Bali. It’s the perfect place to end a Bali trip. Collapse on a lounger, bodysurf in the foam and soak up the tropical sunshine.
