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. Approximate travel time: Ubud - Pandang Bay: 2 hours Ferrry from Pandang Bay to Lombok: 6 hours Drive to Tetebatu: 3 hours
In the morning we will explore this beautiful, local area of ricefields, tabacco fields and small villages. Enjoy a spectacular drive through the middle of Lombok. You will travel through parts of the forest on the slopes of the Rinjani mountains and continue through the dry, eastern part of the island. Once on the north side, you will drive up the slope of the Rinjani Volcano once more in order to arrive in Senaru for the night. Approximate travel time: Tetebatu - Senaru: 3 hours
In the morning you will hike through this valley situated at the base of Mt Rinjani. During the hike, you will be visiting local villages along the way where the people are happy to greet you with warm hospitality and welcome to their houses. We will end our hike at a secluded waterfall for a refreshing swim. 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). Approximate travel time: Senaru - Gilli Island: 2 hours drive followed by a 30 minute ferry
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. Approximate travel time: Gilli Island to Padangbai: 2 hr ferry and 2 hr drive to Sanur
