Adventures  and Experiences

East Bali is where the adventure really happens 

 

Because Bali's unique synthesis of Hinduism with the island's indigenous beliefs are dominated by a volcanic landscape of hot springs, mountains and lakes - all of which exist mainly in the eastern part of the island - East Bali offers you an unparalleled array of adventures in cuisine, nature, culture and heritage. Add to this the artisan crafts of a devoutly devotional culture, and you have many, many experiences to discover when you visit the Island of the Gods.

I've curated some of my favourite experiences which you might enjoy too.

You'll have the advantage of travelling with our trusted driver, so your time won't be wasted visiting shops that you didn't want to see!

There's so much more to tell you about East Bali ... check my blog story about Bali's Spiritual Landscape Experience, 

and the tours below  to get started.

If there's something in particular you'd like to do, please don't hesitate to be in touch with me.
