    Day 1

    Sanur, Bali

    Start your adventure in Sanur, with a quick taste of Bali. Sanur is home to one of the best Balinese night markets.

    Day 2

    Tetebatu, Lombok

    Travel by minivan from Sanur to the port of Padang Bai (approximately 1.5 hours). Then you’ll take a fast boat that takes you from Bali to Lombok (approximately 1.5-2 hours). Stop for lunch in a basic Warung – a traditional Indonesian style cafe, before taking a minibus to Tetebatu (approximately 2 hours). On the way, stop at Masbagik Village which is well known for its pottery products and where you will get to see the pottery being made and enjoy a short walk around the village. The hill retreat of Tetebatu is situated in the centre of Lombok, at the southern base of Mt Rinjani, and boasts spectacular views. Tonight you will enjoy an included dinner at a family run restaurant that provides traditional Lombok style cuisine.

    Day 3

    Labuhan Pandan, Lombok

    Enjoy a guided walk through lush rice fields and see how the region’s farmers have tended the land for centuries, still using traditional water buffalo ploughs. Climb a little higher and pass through clove and coffee plantations and stop at a local warung to try some local coffee (approximately 2.5 hours total). Visit the local village of Pringgasela to learn traditional weaving and enjoy a delicious Sasak feast. In the afternoon return to the hotel, then travel to Labuhan Pandan on the East Coast of Lombok. This remote beachside location is little visited by tourists. Tonight we will stay in our bungalow accommodation amid the peace and quiet of the secluded coast.

    Day 4

    Labuhan Pandan, Lombok

    Take a trip out to the nearby coral reef and enjoy some fantastic snorkelling off the boat. Stop in at a secluded island for lunch with Mt Rinjani towering over Lombok. Tonight, eat a fresh seafood barbecue on the beach.

    Day 5

    Senaru, Lombok

    Travel by minibus around the spiritual centre and sleeping giant of the island, Mt Rinjani (approx 2 hours). Arrive around midday at Senaru, a small, rustic village nestled between the base of Mt Rinjani and the edge of the jungle.Take a guided tour of the local Sasak village to learn about the history and culture of these people who have long lived on the slopes of Mt Rinjani. Here our local guide is part of a female guiding association that trains and develops women in tourism. You will also take a walk to the spectacular Singang Gila waterfall, and perhaps take a refreshing shower underneath it.

    Day 6

    Gili Air

    Continue to the west coast today by minibus (approximately 2.5 hours). The Gili Islands (Tiga Gili) are an archipelago of three small islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Transfer by small boat to Gili Air (approximately 30 minutes), where you can take in the breezy atmosphere and stroll down stunning white beaches that rival those of the neighbouring islands. Your hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the port. Your bags can be transported by cidemo (horse cart) from the port to the hotel.

    Day 7

    Gili Air

    The island is your oyster and today is completely free to relax or explore. Perhaps take in another snorkelling trip, or catch a ferry across to the other islands of Gili Trawangan and Gili Meno and see who has the better beaches. This evening enjoy an optional final group dinner on the beachfront as you say farewell to your fellow travellers.

    Day 8

    Gili Air

    Your trip comes to an end today. Perhaps extend your stay on the blissful Gili Air.
