Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Seraya
In the quiet coastal town of Seraya you’ll stay in a quirky Balinese bungalow with views over the rocky coastline. You’ll be treated to home-cooked meals throughout your stay, with mouth-watering scents wafting from the kitchen. The bungalows are owned by Hans and Els, from Holland who’ve lived in the area for years, and set up a local project which supports girls from the village by funding their education.
Tour of the area & departure
Today, you’ll be woken by the soothing sound of seabirds and lapping waves as the scent of fresh toast drifts from the kitchen. After breakfast you’ll take a guided tour of the area with a local guide, wandering through ginger, vanilla and clove plantations. Your guide can tell you everything they know about the local area and its friendly residents.
You’ll hike between green rice terraces and coffee plantations to an ancient Balinese temple where the local women burn small incense offerings every day. The view is breathtaking from here, looking out across Bali’s highest volcano with the brilliant blue sea and the faint outline of Lombok on the horizon.
The next day, you’ll get ready to say goodbye to this peaceful corner of Bali and pack your things before hitting the road.
Optional day trip
Balinese Cooking Class
Whilst in Seraya you can learn the fine art of Balinese cooking, a great skill to take home and show your friends. Starting off in the local market, you’ll discover a plethora of colourful tropical fruit, such as rambutan and fresh mangoes. There are so many colours and spices, your experienced guide will give an explanation what is used where. Upon returning to your accommodation you’ll use your fresh ingredients to cook your own Balinese meal!
