flights  Flight to Denpasar, Bali

Day 1
You are met upon arrival at Denpasar airport after your flight from the UK and transferred to your hotel in Ubud for your overnight stay.

nights  4* Bisma Eight (Garden Suite) Hotel or similar

Day 2
Your tour starts with a drive north to Bedugul, part of the island’s central highlands region renowned for its stunning beauty and three caldera lakes (Beratan, Buyan and Tamblingan). The first stop will be the peaceful Botanical Garden, established in 1959 and home to some 2,000 species of plants. After a picnic lunch in the gardens, you visit the regional market at Candi Kuning before heading further north to see the iconic Ulun Danu Temple located on a small jut of land within the calm waters of Lake Beratan. You then continue to Munduk Moding Coffee Plantation, stopping along the way at the village of Asah Gobleg for fine views of Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan (weather permitting). After checking in at the plantation, the rest of the day is at leisure.

nights 4* Munduk Moding Plantation (1 bed villa and pool)

Day 3
Heading in the direction of Lake Tamblingan, your day begins with a gentle trek down through the tropical rainforest that surrounds this attractive lake. Reaching the shore of the lake after approximately one hour, you will continue your journey by boat, as you are rowed across its waters in a traditional dug-out canoe. Lunch will be provided in a secluded local restaurant offering splendid views of the Munduk Hills and Seririt Beach. Later return to the plantation, where the remainder of the day will be at leisure.

nights 4* Munduk Moding Plantation (1 bed villa and pool)

Day 4
On the edge of a plateau above three breathtakingly beautiful lakes, Munduk Moding Plantation is located in one of the most mountainous areas of the island. This morning’s one and a half hour trek along the resort’s trail path affords the opportunity to discover more about the local flora and perhaps spot some of the island’s indigenous birds along the way. Leaving the resort at midday, your next destination will be the West Bali National Park. Located on the northwest coast of the island and covering an area of approximately 190 square kilometres, the park is known for its diverse habitat including savanna, mangrove swamps and coral islands. Lunch will be taken in a local restaurant en route and upon arrival you will check-in to the peaceful Menjangan Resort which is situated in the heart of the national park. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure.

nights 4* The Menjangan Resort (Beach villa)

Day 5
Situated approximately 8km off the northwest tip of the Bali, the uninhabited island of Menjangan has one of the best-preserved coral reefs in the area. Today you are transported by boat to this idyllic location for a morning of snorkelling, swimming and relaxing. With excellent underwater visibility (ranging from 15 to 50 metres), there are fantastic opportunities to see all kinds of marine life including pygmy seahorses, schools of snappers and even reef sharks. The crew will present a packed lunch on the boat and if you are lucky you may spot wild deer who swim across to the island from the mainland.

nights 4* The Menjangan Resort (Beach villa)

Day 6
The morning is free for relaxation or further exploration of the national park. You will be collected at approximately 12 noon to visit the nearby ornate Pulaki Temple built predominately from black granite stone and home to several species of Macaque monkeys who, in Balinese belief, are considered to be the sacred guardians of the temple. After ample time to appreciate the temple and its enchanting setting between the mountains and the sea, you continue south to Yeh Gangga, stopping for lunch in a local restaurant along the way. You will stay at the delightfully positioned Waka Gangga located on a pristine black-sand beach on the island’s west coast. A warm welcome and a spectacular sunset awaits.

nights 4* Waka Gangga (villa with pool ocean view)

Day 7
Using customised Land Rovers as the mode of transport, today’s excursion goes off-road and heads into the superb countryside surrounding Gunung Batukaru, Bali’s second-highest mountain. The goal is the attractively-set bamboo forest restaurant, which is set deep in this mountainous region of the island and the location for today’s lunch. There is so much to see and take in en route. This is the heartland of Bali where verdant rice paddies, traditional villages and friendly Balinese await. Highlights include the seemingly endless UNESCO-recognised rice terraces at Jatiluwih and the dramatically located 11th century Hindu temple of Batukaru. Photo opportunities abound as you explore little-visited temples and small villages and learn about the local flora and fauna during a stop at a local farm.

nights 4* Waka Gangga (villa with pool ocean view)

Day 8
The day is at leisure until it is time to transfer to the airport in order to catch your onward flight or stay a few nights at a beach resort.
