1. Learn all about the island
From coral reefs and volcanoes to jungle hikes and ancient temples, there’s so much to see on Bali. Explore the east of Bali and visit the holy Elephant Cave, swim under Tegenungan Waterfall, and see traditional woodcarvers at work. If you want to explore Ubud, also on the eastern part of the island, this private tour offers loads of choices. Head to the Monkey Forest to spot macaques, see artisans at work on their craft, visit Ubud Palace, or tour temples. These are just some of the things you can do to make your Bali trip unique and unforgettable.
2. Make Insta memories
Capture the most beautiful sights in Bali on a specially designed scenic Instagram tour. Start with striking a pose at the Gates of Heaven at Lempuyang Temple. Next, head to Tirta Gangga palace. There, you can photograph its gardens, pools, and sculptures. Then, it’s time to explore the jungle! Once you’re done monkeying around, you can admire rice fields and swim at a waterfall. This tour guarantees wish-you-were-here moments aplenty.
3. Get up and go
Bali is an adventure lover’s paradise. We think a sunrise hike with a view of three volcanoes sounds like a pretty epic way to start the day. Mount Batur with its jungle surrounds is your playground here — end the morning’s trek with a breakfast of eggs cooked in the steam produced by a volcano!
4. Feel the adrenaline
If getting down and dirty is your thing, race around an ATV track in the middle of the jungle. The challenging trails will get your adrenaline racing through your body. For water-lovers who want a rush, a river-rafting trip is just the thing. Face class II rapids on the Ayung River as you raft past beautiful nature and wildlife.

After visiting a local market and selecting the freshest ingredients, you’ll learn all the skills you need to create an authentic, tasty dish.
6. Hang ten
Bali is well-known as one of the world’s top surfing destinations thanks to its 271 miles of gorgeous coastline. May to September sees the best surfing on the west coast. From November to March, surf’s up on the east of the island. Head to the west for your own surf lesson on Batu Bolong with its black sand beaches. This experience is ideal for beginners and intermediate surfers.
7. Jump into the life aquatic
If you want to spend more time in the water than on it, this snorkeling day trip is a must. Snorkel in three different bays in Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida as you spot a vast range of underwater creatures on the coral reefs.
8. Beach hop til you drop
Beach-hopping is one of the most sought-after things to do in Bali. You can visit some of Nusa Peninsula’s most serene seaside spots on a private fast boat day tour. Relax on hidden beaches and swim in crystal-clear waters in between marveling at the breathtaking cliff-side views of the Indian ocean.
9. Learn a new skill
