Day 2: SOUTH BALI - BEDUGUL – LOVINA
Begin the day with an early trip to Bedugul to explore the Bedugul Botanical Gardens. Walk around its tranquil gardens and relax under the tall trees as you enjoy the gradual shift in temperature from cool morning mist to the warm glow of the Balinese sun. 

Afterwards, make a quick stop at Candi Kuning - the traditional fruit and vegetable markets – to get your hands on some freshly grown, local produce. Then, head to a nearby local restaurant and dive into plates of traditional Balinese food whilst savouring stunning views over the surrounding mountain ranges and lakes.

Afterwards, continue down the hill, making a stop at Ulun Danu Water Temple, located right at the water’s edge. Spend a few moments exploring this exquisite temple widely considered to be one of the most photographed temples in Bali.  Then, get the plumping as you make a short hike down the hillside steps to picturesque Git Git Waterfall. There, relax and let the cool spray of the water revive you before heading back to the car. From here, drive straight along the Bali’s northern coast to Lovina Beach.

Day 3: LOVINA
Rise early before the sun and get ready to venture out to sea for an exciting morning of dolphin watching. Watch up to five species of native dolphin spring from the water against the gorgeous backdrop of an orange sunset before heading back for breakfast at your hotel.

Spend the rest of the day unwinding at your hotel with a relaxing one hour, traditional Balinese massage.

Day 4: LOVINA - MENJANGAN ISLAND – BANJAR HOT SPRINGS
In the morning, make your way by car along the northern coastline to Mimpi Banjar. Here, collect your snorkelling equipment before embarking on a short boat ride to Menjangan Island. Assisted by your local guide, explore the island’s colourful reefs and exquisite turquoise waters, considered some of the best in the region.

Back on the mainland, venture onward through the coastal area of Seririt towards Banjar Hot Springs. Revive with a refreshing dip in its warm waters considered by locals to possess a healing mix of natural nutrients and minerals.

Head back to your accommodation to spend the night in Lovina.

Day 5: LOVINA – KINTAMANI
After breakfast, make your way to Kintamani with a short pit stop at Pura Beji “Beji Temple”. Built in the 15th century, this subak temple is widely considered one of the oldest temples on the island.

Afterwards, head to Pura Puncak Penulisan, located in Bangli Regency. Perched on the summit of Penulisan Mountain (1745m), it is the highest temple in Bali, with 336 steps rising all the way to the summit. Explore the temple, with the option to ascend to the summit for amazing views of the surrounding countryside. 

Head back to your hotel in Lovina to spend the night.

Day 6: KINTAMANI – TRUNYAN
After breakfast, embark on a 15-minute boat ride across Lake Batur, formed by the volcanic caldera of Mount Batur. Arrive in Trunyan and explore the local village inhabited by the ‘Bali Aga’, Bali’s oldest ethnic group. Learn about the Bali Aga’s fascinating burial rituals, where the dead are laid out in ravines just outside the village.

In the afternoon, head back to Kintamani for a visit to the hot springs before spending the rest of the afternoon at your leisure.
