Description of Bali adventure holiday
A Bali adventure tour has got exotic excitement all over it with an incredibly beautiful natural backdrop to enliven the senses and help you discover what makes this Indonesian island such a delight for culture and beach lovers alike.
This nine day Bali adventure holiday takes you from the cultural epicentre, Ubud, to the botanical gardens and beaches of Sanur, in the south, with a wide range of verdant volcanic slopes and tiny villages, surrounded by rice paddies and tranquil lakes, adding to the thrill of overland travel.
The chance to trek on the slopes of Mount Batur is an incredible experience only matched by the coral reefs and tropical fish to be found in the protected marine environment of Bali Barat National Park. Finishing off each and every day of this Bali adventure tour with a delicious Balinese dish is just as essential as watching the sunset, with more sublime moments to be found in the island’s Hindu and Buddhist temples, including the reflective Pura Ulun Danu Bratan.
From colourful cultural customs to beautiful beaches and coral reefs, a Bali adventure holiday is just what you need to fall head over heels in love with Southeast Asia, all over again.

Reviewed on 17 Sep 2013 by Christina ColleyThe most memorable part was snorkeling in Lovina...Amazing! The activities were amazing and allowed us to see Bali in a way that we might not have been able to if traveling alone. Our tour guide and local guides were are very kind and incredibly helpful.

PlanetTravel is an opportunity to experience different cultures, meet new people, taste weird and wonderful foods and – for many – get close to local wildlife. We actively discourage our travellers from participating in any activities that exploit wild, domestic or working animals. In Bali, it’s fairly common to see “Kopi Luwak” or “civet coffee” being sold. Civets are small, nocturnal mammals that are native to Bali and other parts of Asia. The coffee they help to create – by eating and excreting coffee beans, which are then collected and cleaned – has become increasingly popular. Sadly, this has encouraged a cruel trade and farming of these beautiful animals. All our leaders strongly discourage passengers from engaging in this trade, by not visiting farms or buying these coffee beans. We hope to encourage discussion and educate travellers about this sad trade whilst in Bali.
We believe wild animals should be viewed – without contact or interaction – doing what they do best: living in the wild. Unfortunately, in Bali it’s common to see snakes, monkeys and even owls being used as tourist gimmicks to pose for photos with. Our group leaders will always explain why we don’t support animal exploitation and avoid such activities on our trips.
When visiting fragile environments, remote areas and national parks, we operate a “take in, take back out” system. To reduce single-use plastics on our trips we often provide reusable bags, encourage the use of reusable drinking bottles and are working to increase access to places to refill them. On this tour everyone is given a canvas bag to use to encourage them to say “no” to plastic bags in shops they may visit.
PeopleWe have been an established tour operator in Bali for over 10 years and our fabulous local leaders have forged long standing and close relationships with many Balinese people. Due to the continued relationship many of our local friends invite us into their homes to share in a traditional Balinese feast, not only providing additional income for the respective families, but giving you a truly unique insight into Balinese culinary delights and importantly, Balinese familial culture.
During this trip, we stay in small locally owned accommodation to help provide increased income to the local economy and step by step we have been working with our local friends to improve environmental awareness.
We are very proud as a company to see our Balinese friends grow with our business. Dewa Ketut, our transport man in Bali is a great example of this. Through our relationship with Dewa he has been able to develop his business from one leased minivan, to his personal fleet of 5 new minivans, and with continued support he now employs a staff of 5.
Our support of the local culture and peoples of Bali spreads it wings over many spectacular destinations. We choose local guides from various villages to help them develop their guiding and English skills, to watch their confidence grow as they mature their talents is truly rewarding. We encourage passengers to assist in the preservation of regional traditions such as the Genyek dance, Megi Bung feasting, and songket weaving.
