The Bali Adventure week is the perfect way to experience the adventurous side of this beautiful little island. You will visit an active volcano, take a cycle tour that will take you across spice plantations and rice fields while offering you picturesque views of mountains and landscapes. This week will also have you visiting different beaches and the Turtle Conservation Village, hiking up Mount Batur, rafting down river Ayung and finish with a Balinese massage at the end to refresh and rejuvenate you, getting you ready for the next adventure you have planned. This action-packed week begins by visiting the site of an active volcano – Kintamani. The first activity of the week involves a bicycle tour offering you a magnificent view of Mt. Batur and the surrounding landscape and takes you through spice plantations and rice fields. The next day of the adventure has you spending the day at a southern Bali beach and visiting the Turtle Conservation Village. Days 3 and 4 involve rafting down the beautiful Ayung river and a hike at sunrise up Mt. Batur. The last planned activity for the week is a relaxing Balinese massage which will relieve you of any aches and pains from the active week so the only thing you take back with you are wonderful memories. You will have the weekend free to yourself to do as you wish and visit other parts of Bali that are not included in the adventure week.
