Arrive in Ubud at any time. Check with the reception staff for a message from your Chief Experience Officer (CEO). Please be around for your important Group meeting at 6pm where you will meet your C.E.O and fellow travellers.
From Ubud we make our way to the ferry harbour at Padangbai. After a ferry ride of approximately 4.5 hours, we will arrive in the port of Lembar. From Lembar it is a 2.5 hour drive to the village of Tetebatu on the slope of the Rinjani volcano. In the afternoon we will explore this beautiful and local area of ricefields,tabacco fields and the small villages.
In the early morning you may wish to start your day with a guided walk through the rice fields into the Rinjani National Park. The walk will take us on local pathways, through small villages, through a forest where you may be lucky enough to spot a troupe of black monkeys and onwards to a waterfall. From the waterfall the bus collects us as we continue the drive to Sapit. Sitting at approximately 800 metres above sea level, Sapit enjoys stunning views and a comfortable cooler climate. We explore the local village including a visit the old mosque of Lombok still used by the followers of the Wetu Telu religion. This afternoon will be filled with fun and laughter as the local village children join us at our homestay for an English lesson.
Today we drive approximately 4 hours to a harbour from where small outrigger boats will transport us to the Gili islands after around 30 minutes at sea. With a tiny population, no cars, an industry consisting of tourism, coconut plantations and fishing, and surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, pristine waters and coral reefs, the Gili Islands are the ideal location to relax, enjoy the sun, sand and sea and let go of all your cares and worries. If you feel particularly energetic your CEO can organise an optional snorkeling trip. Please note there is limited fresh water available on the Gilis and electricity is supplied by generator so showers use salt water and rooms are typically fan only (no air-con).
We return by fast boat to Bali today and transfer to Sanur. We spend our final evening dinner together, reflecting on our adventure under a Balinese sunset.
