Indonesia Trip: 12 Days
Bali is a wonderland of lush greenery, laid back beaches, perfect waves and unique art and culture around every corner.
This trip kicks off in the most recent hot spot in Bali - Canggu. You can expect a cool area of the island with hip eateries, fun bars, street art, yoga and of course the beach is right there too! We will have more than enough to do in this modern travelers paradise. Then it's back to nature in the cultural mecca of Ubud. This is where you can see all sorts of traditional performances, art and partake in an awesome local traveler culture that thrives on the vibe Ubud provides. Then we will end it off on the legendary Gili Islands. This is where white sand meets shallow turquoise waters and sea turtles swim right in front of you. There are no cars on these islands. Just bikes and horses! You can meander and explore this tropical paradise to your hearts content.
This trip is bound to fill your camera, belly and heart to overflowing!
Day 1 (Kuta)
Group flights will arrive throughout the first day. Get acquainted with the busy streets of Kuta, Bali and meet your group over some food and drinks. Our centrally located hotel is minutes away from Kuta Beach, perfect for sunsets.

Take an A/C minivan to the pier and board the high speed "Fast boat" to the paradise island of Gili Trawangan.

Day 5-7 (Ubud)
Take the "Fast Boat" back from Gili Trawangan to Bali and from the pier take an A/C minivan transfer to the cultural destination of Ubud.

Day 8-10 (Canggu)
We take A/C minivans to Canggu, Bali.
Canggu life epitomizes the blend of surf culture, rural traditional Bali, and trendy restaurants, bars and shopping. It has popped up recently as one of the places in all of S.E. Asia to visit, and the kind of place you never want to leave.

Surf A Wave
Nothing compares to the feeling you get the first time you paddle into a wave, stand up as it breaks and ride the face of it – this is the incomparable feeling of surfing. When you get it right, it feels right and you'll always ALWAYS remember that first time you caught that first wave. Don't be surprised if this experience leads to an eternal addiction.
Surfing is arguably the most challenging sport in the world and requires you to learn much more than physical coordination. In order to surf a wave, you'll need patience, discipline, a lack of fear and an insatiable urge to have fun. It's the timing of your prescence in the ocean combined with nature providing you with that perfect wave, just for you. It's no coincidence that 6 of the countries that we run trips to (Indonesia, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru & Colombia) have wicked surf scenes because there's nothing quite like it.
