Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Tour starts in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali

Arrive in Ubud and check-in at the hotel. Located around 200-300 metres above sea level Ubud is surrounded by terraced paddy fields and is well known as the cultural heart of the island of Bali. The village itself is today a busy hive of artistic activity with many shops selling locally made bamboo furniture, wood and stone carvings, paintings and other arts and crafts. Traditional Hindu-Balinese dance performances take place most evenings.

Accommodation: Bhuwana Ubud Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: None
Day 2 - From Ubud, visit a temple in traditional Balinese style, and walk to ancient Royal tombs

This morning we make our way to a local project, where we meet the staff who will help us create Balinese temple offerings, typically made up of small palm leaf baskets filled with flowers and rice, which we take with us to Tirta Empul temple. Here we have the opportunity to experience the ritual of entering a temple as a local Balinese would. We change into traditional dress and ask permission to enter by placing our offerings at the entrance. Here we may also bathe in the holy waters. We advise you dress in a white shirt or blouse for this day - you will be loaned a Balinese sarong for the duration of the visit to the temple. From here we continue north to Gunung Kawi, where we walk down towards the Pakarisan River, along around 100 steps, to see beautiful 11th century Royal tombs cut into a sheer cliff face. We then make our way back up the steps to re-join our bus and return to the local project where we can enjoy lunch, before returning to Ubud for some for time in the afternoon - an ideal opportunity to explore the shops and market, or simply relax at the hotel.

Day 3 - Cycling through paddy fields;

This morning we head out in to the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside by bike, exploring the rice terraces and farming villages that abound the area. The cycling has been designed to be easy and will be taken at a leisurely pace, lasting approximately 2-3 hours and helmets are provided. Along the way we'll learn about local farming techniques and get a glimpse into the daily lives of the farmers here before finishing back in Ubud. (Your Explore Leader will be on hand to offer alternative suggestions should you wish to not take part in the cycling). Following the half day's cycling and after lunch in a traditional Balinese home, we then return to our hotel. The rest of the day is then free to relax by the hotel pool or to explore Ubud further.

Accommodation: The Jayakarta Bali Beach Resort(or similar)

Standard Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 4 - Fly from Bali to Flores; drive through picturesque countryside to Moni

Today we fly to Ende on eastern Flores Island. On arrival we embark on a scenic 3 hour drive. Our journey takes us through a picturesque landscape of rice fields, coffee plantations and olive trees as well as small villages. We wind our way to Moni, our base from where we climb Kelimutu volcano, we drive alongside a river and see a beautiful gorge as we climb through the mountains to our destination.

Accommodation: Kelimutu Ecolodge(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 5 - From Moni, climb Kelimutu volcano for views of three crater lakes; Scenic drive to the hill town of Bajawa

We have an early start today as we make our way to the base of Kelimutu volcano. We climb to the summit for an unforgettable sunrise panorama. The walk takes around 30-40 minutes over a series of steps interspersed with flatter sections, the final 10-15 minutes covers 127 relatively steep steps. Our reward at the summit, on a clear day, is the view of three crater lakes; some of the most spectacular in the world. The names of the lakes translate to Lake of Old People, Lake of Young Men and Maidens, and Bewitched or Enchanted Lake. The latter two lakes are in close proximity and share a crater wall, but the most outstanding feature of these lakes is their differing colours, depending on the changing mineral content of the water at any given time. You may see a turquoise lake next to a black one! It is then no surprise that this area of stunning and unusual natural beauty was once an important place for spiritual rituals. After some time to enjoy this beautiful place we make the journey back down off the volcano and return to Moni. Later today we leave the mountains behind as we head to the south east coast back to Ende, from where we drive along the coast past a stunning green stone beach, before winding our way back uphill to Bajawa, surrounded by lush jungle covered slopes and volcanoes. Bajawa is the spiritual heartland of the Ngada tribal people, who are made up from five tribal groups living in the surrounding area, each with their own customs, language, beliefs and traditional dress.

Accommodation: Edelweis Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 6 - From Bajawa, hike through traditional Ngada tribal villages

This morning we drive to Wolobobo, from where we enjoy magnificent views of Ebulobo and Inerie volcanoes. Continuing on we drive to the foot of Inerie from where we take an easy walk through several small traditional Ngada villages with a local guide. The largest village is Bena, where we find megalithic stones along with offering and meeting places in between rows of stilt houses with steep thatched grass roofs. Walking through the village gives a sense of going back in time. The Ngada retain their animist beliefs after having been essentially forced to convert to Catholicism by Dutch missionaries in the 1920s, hence images of Jesus and Mary feature amidst pig jaws, buffalo horns and tribal art! From a viewpoint we can overlook the village, the volcano and the blue waters of the Sawu Sea, before we continue on and take a short walk to another traditional village called Luba, before returning to Bajawa.

Day 7 - Drive through the beautiful countryside of central Flores to Ruteng

We spend the day making our way through a stunning landscape, passing dense jungle, active volcanoes and the rice fields of central Flores as we make our way west across the island. Finally we reach our destination of Ruteng in the district of Mangarai. This mainly Catholic city located at an altitude of 1170 metres above sea level and surrounded by paddy fields enjoys a cooler climate. We overnight here before our boat expedition into the Komodo archipelago.

Accommodation: Maria Berduka(or similar)

Day 8 - Cruise to Rinca Island for Komodo dragon safari walk; overnight on boat

This morning we make our way to the harbour and board our boat. All our meals for our two day cruise will be prepared and served on board, the first one being a lunch as we head off to our first port of call. We disembark on Rinca Island itself and meet with some of the national park's rangers (one ranger per group of five), who will lead us carefully along a trail into Komodo dragon territory to see if we can spot them. Komodo dragons, known locally as 'ora', are highly dangerous giant lizards reaching up to lengths of over 3.5 metres and weighing up to 150 kilos, more usually though they are around 2.5 metres in length. Hidden in the undergrowth the Komodo dragons wait patiently for their prey, such as deer and water buffalo - which we are likely to see in the national park - and when the time is right they ambush their victim and bite into them releasing a toxic venom from glands within their lower jaw causing a slow death. We walk for around two hours across a relatively flat terrain covering around 5km. Komodo dragons are likely to be seen in greater numbers after the mating season which takes place between May and August. We overnight on our private boat in simple shared accommodation, made up of double and single bunk beds in two mixed-sex cabins. Facilities include two toilets and a salt water shower, with a limited amount of fresh water for bathing. You may choose to sleep on deck under the stars as we anchor for the night.

Accommodation: Overnight Boat - Komodo National Park(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 9 - Cruise to Komodo Island for Komodo dragon safari walk; snorkelling and swimming off Pink Beach

This morning we make our way to Komodo Island itself where we take another safari walk with national park rangers to spot the Komodo dragons, and learn a little more about these imposing beasts. Afterwards we make a short cruise to the beautiful Pink Beach, which take its name from the pink sand created from red coral. The beach itself is small but very picturesque and sees relatively few visitors. There are pockets of shade under some trees to chill out when not taking a dip in the shallow ocean water. Not to be missed, however, is the snorkelling on the spectacularly colourful coral reef a short swim from the beach. For those without their own snorkelling equipment this can be hired in advance from Labuan Bajo. Komodo National Park was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1986 and includes the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Gili Mota, Nusa Kode and Padar. This diverse marine area boasts over a 1,000 species of fish, 260 species of reef building coral as well as a significant amount of other marine life. After lunch we return to Labuan Bajo for the night before our return to Bali.

Accommodation: Sylvia Resort Komodo(or similar)

Day 10 - Free morning; Fly to Bali and drive to Sanur Beach

Alternatively, you can take a boat excursion to the nearby island of Lembongan, and spend the day snorkelling, taking a tour of the mangroves by canoe and relaxing on one of the island's many sandy beaches. Another option is a tour of East Bali starting with a cultural Barong dance performance, a visit to the bat cave of Goa Lawa, a walk through the traditional village of Tengagan and a visit to the water palace of Tritagangga.

Facilities include two toilets and a salt water shower, with a limited amount of fresh water for bathing. You may choose to sleep on deck under the stars as we anchor for the night. Please also note that due to the remote nature of Bajawa, the region is prone to frequent power cuts. Water here is pump-driven, so on an occasion there is a power cut there may also be no running water.

Information
International passengers will need to pass through immigration first. If you need to purchase a visa-on-arrival, queue up at the purchase kiosks before heading to the passport control counter. Visitors holding valid passports from designated countries can obtain a 30 day non-extendable visa. This costs USD 35 for a 30 day stay and must be paid in cash. There are also a number of countries that require a visa to be organized before arrival, or do not require a visa at all. This is applicable to Indonesia in general and is not specific to Bali. After claiming your baggage, international passengers need to go through customs, which is usually straight-forward. There are currency exchange counters just outside baggage claim, but you should not change money at the airport unless absolutely necessary. The rate is usually better outside the airport. If we have arranged a transfer for you the following instructions should help you to find your driver: Walking out of the arrival terminal you turn left and walk through the Duty Free Shop and exit, once you come to the exit, you will see a sign for the toilets and Domestic Terminal. Please turn left immediately towards the toilets as indicated on the sign. After approximately 50 metres you pass WH Smith Express just before the toilets. Please continue about 10 metres further, where your driver will wait near the entrance of the toilets. If you have any difficulties in locating your driver then please call +62 811 380 3821 or +62 811 380 3820
