Itinerary Details

Upon your arrival in Bali, you will be welcomed by a Rahhalah representative, and you will be transferred to your hotel in Ubud.

Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, relaxing or exploring the beautiful town at your own pace.

In the evening, the group will re-assemble for a delicious Welcome Dinner.

Accommodation in Ubud: Ubud Wana or similar.

You will start the day with a refreshing yoga flow. You will welcome the sun with a series of invigorating sun salutations, appropriate both for beginners and experienced yoga practitioners that will boost your energy and prepare you for an exciting day ahead.

After an early breakfast, you will head towards Carangsari for a cycling adventure along the back roads of the countryside, getting a glimpse of the daily life and vibrant culture of Bali. The tour (suitable for guests of all ages and physical conditions), includes visits to a typical Balinese household, an elephant camp, and a chocolate factory. You will also stop at the memorial of I Gusti Ngurah Rai (a national hero and namesake of Bali’s airport, born in Carangsari), and you will meet the surprisingly well-mannered monkeys inhabiting the sacred nutmeg forest at Sangeh. Lunch is served at a location with panoramic vistas of the nearby Ubud.

Accommodation in Ubud: UbudWana or similar.

You will leave the hotel very early in the morning (at 2.30 am) to drive to the starting point of the trail that leads to the top of Mt. Batur. The hike will last for about 1.5-2 hours, and you are expected to reach the peak (1,717 m of altitude) just in time to enjoy the sunrise and its spectacular red hues. This volcano is still active, and you will walk around the rim of the volcanic cone to see the crater of the last eruption and the black lava flown down during the first and second eruption.
As the new day dawns, you will spend some time in meditation and reflection, surrounded by the beautiful landscape and the powerful energy of the volcano, clearing your mind and setting your intentions for the day.

After breakfast in this spectacular setting, you will begin your descent, which is as challenging as the ascent, but this time you will enjoy the panoramic views since the night veils will have lifted. As a bonus, you will stop at Toya Devasyafor, the natural hot-spring pools where you will relax your muscles.

Buffet lunch will be served at a restaurant with views of Mt Batur. On your way back to Ubud, you will stop at Tegalalang, the Ubud Palace, and the sacred Monkey Forest, to explore the most famous sites of the town.

After breakfast, you will check out from the hotel and head to Ayung River for a 2-hour, white-water rafting adventure. Accompanied by professionals, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery while you raft down the river and its easy Class I-II rapids. Lunch will be served at the end of the rafting trip.

In the afternoon, you will drive to Kuta and, en route, you will stop at an Orphanage house for a brief acquaintance with the kids and a presentation of how such social challenges are met.

Accommodation in Kuta: Bali Dynasty Hotel or similar.

After a gentle, morning yoga session, you will enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, relaxing at the hotel or the famous Kuta beach, shopping, or engaging in any of the available optional activities (additional cost applies).

Accommodation in Kuta: Bali Dynasty Hotel or similar.

Once more, you will start the day with a gentle yoga session that will prepare you for the cultural (and, for some of you, spiritual) exploration that will follow.

After breakfast, you will depart for a tour around Bali’s most renowned temples. Temples play a vital role in Bali’s culture, as they are beautifully ornated and exist in abundance and all sizes: from large ones to tiny shrines present in every house, corner, or yard.

You will first head towards Tana Lot Temple: Bali’s most iconic temple, built in the 16th century to honor the sea deities. Then, you will visit the beautiful Taman Ayun Temple, dating to the Royal Mengwi Dynasty. From Taman Ayun, you will drive further to the north to visit the UlunDanu temple. Sitting on the shore of Lake Beratan, Ulun Danu was built to honor the lake and the river goddess.

You will end the day with a visit at the Candi Kuning Fruits and Flowers Market, before driving back to Kutafor a farewell dinner at sunset.

After breakfast, and depending on your flight details, you will be transferred to the airport.
