Sculpted by dense tropical forests and dramatic coastlines famous for their waves, Bali shelters a unique combination of natural beauty and vibrant culture. This extension to the “land of the gods” whisks you to the lush artist's haven of Ubud, where you'll walk amid cascading rice terraces and sample Balinese specialties. Your guide will introduce you to local artisans and farmers and you'll have the opportunity to witness ceremony dances and visit tranquil temples. For those looking for an extra thrill, you have the option to dine 150 feet in the air during a hot-air balloon ride or rush down the white waters on a rafting excursion. Overnights are in lovely atmospheric hotels that blend into the environment. This extension can be taken either before or after your main trip.

With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.
Level 1 – Easiest
Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.
Level 3 – Moderate
Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.
Level 5 – Strenuous
Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.
